Description
Vignamaggio is a wine estate in the Chianti countryside, known for its beautiful Renaissance villa, its delicious wines, for being the birthplace of the Mona Lisa painted by Leonardo and, last but not least, for an outstanding place to stay, positioned at the high end of the hospitality available in the area.

The estate consists of rooms, suites and apartments, each one different from the next, situated in the villa and in three different old farmhouses which have been carefully and tastefully restored and furnished and which are complemented with outdoor and indoor facilities such as a tennis court, two swimming pools, mountain bikes, gym, wellness centre and a children playground.

All apartments have one double bedroom, a living room and a kitchenette; some of them can accomodate up to four people; all have modern bathroom facilities (some have jacuzzi tub or shower) and direct outside phone line.

There is no restaurant but dinners are served during the week for our guests and the food is prepared and cooked in the best Tuscan tradition.

Buffet breakfast is served in the dining room of the Casolese farmhouse and in the summer on the terrace by one of the two pools.

Greve in Chianti, a village which is two miles from us, is midway between Florence and Siena and this makes Vignamaggio an ideal place for visiting both these cities and other towns such as San Gimignano, Arezzo and others in Tuscany or Umbria.
