Used as the set for famous costume films and supposed birthplace of Mona Lisa, Vignamaggio offers unique accommodation in the Tuscan countryside.
One of the oldest wine estates situated in the Chianti Classico region, Vignamaggio is made up of a 14th-century Renaissance villa where rooms and suites are located, surrounded by beautiful Italian gardens. The restored farm buildings scattered around the grounds are now home to luxurious apartments.
Vignamaggio's grounds feature everything you could ask for from a holiday in the Tuscan countryside. Enjoy a game of tennis, have a refreshing swim in one of the outdoor pools or go horse-riding through the woods. Bikes are available free of charge and kids have their own playground.
Vignamaggio has a spa centre, where you can use the Turkish baths free of charge. The hotel has also its own gym which comes complete with a hot tub. Go for walks down to the river past vineyards and olive groves or just sunbathe a terrace.
Shoot some pool in the games room indoors, play table tennis or just relax with a cup of tea in one of the historic drawing rooms. In Vignamaggio's common areas you can enjoy complimentary hot drinks and snacks all day long.
A stay at Vignamaggio wouldn't be complete without tasting the excellent wine produced on site. Guided tours of the gardens, cellars and museum are run daily and you can taste wine and oil free of charge at the shop. There is also a charming wine bar which overlooks the vineyards.
Taste genuine Tuscan cuisine at Vignamaggio's restaurant or try your hand at cooking yourself with one of the cooking classes which can be organised for you.
