Villa Mangiacane dates back to the fifteenth century and was built for the Machiavelli family with whispers that Michelangelo himself participated in the design. In fact, because of the significance of the owners and architects, the original buildings plan for improvements are housed at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. At Villa Mangiacane you can expect to find a completely restored and unique five-star luxury accommodation in Tuscany. Steeped in art, history, and culture, rooms are filled with original artwork and furniture collected from around the globe emulating the comfort of a private home. Set among 600 acres of flourishing vineyards and olive groves, the private villa now produces four distinguished wines. The estate’s 6,000 olive trees produce its own distinctive extra virgin olive oil and is liberally used by the kitchen to enhance the flavors of the local produce. The idea has been to produce fine modern tastes in a setting that could offer old-world hospitality to its guests. The 28 individually designed rooms and suites offer stunning views of the countryside, gardens or vineyards. A stay in the main villa will surround you with original Renaissance art and terraces offering sweeping views of the Tuscan landscape while the exclusive vineyard villa features private plunge pools.
