Overview

Vignamaggio is one of the oldest farming estates in Tuscany, located among the hills of Chianti at the source of the Greve River. It offers boutique hotel rooms as well as apartments and self-catering farmhouses.

This Chic Retreat is rich in history. Built in 1300 by the Gherardini family, Vignamaggio was the birthplace of Leonard da Vinci's famous Gioconda, Monna Lisa Gherardini. As the cousin of the Gheradini's, it is believed that Lisa spent much of her time there.

Vignamaggio was also the filming location for the 1993 film adaptation of William Shakespeare's 'Much Ado About Nothing' starring Kenneth Branagh and Emma Thompson.

Dogs are welcome at the hotel on request, and will be provided with a bowl for dinner.

Activities

All guests receive a guided tour of the estate's gardens and wine cellars during their stay. We recommend booking into one of the tastings, which gives you the opportunity to sample some incredible estate wines. With your wine, you can enjoy a light selection of cheeses, biscotti and cold meats, or even opt for a full four-course dinner.

If you are feeling active, play a game of tennis, table tennis or billiards on the hotel's courts. You can also explore one of the three private hiking or cycling trails. Keep up with your fitness in the fully-equipped gym before dipping into one of the two swimming pools.

After a long day, the hotel offers a vast selection of wellness activities. Whether you prefer a massage or beauty treatments, the hotel's beauty therapist, Ariana, is eager to help you relax and recharge.

Less than an hour from both Florence and Siena, and just 10 minutes from the centre of Greve in Chianti, Vignamaggio is in an idyllic spot for those wanting to explore the heart of Tuscany and its cultural gems.

Dining

Breakfast is served in the dining all of the villa or on the terrace of the Casolese farmhouse. The Italian feast includes a delicious array of local cheeses, meats, fresh fruit, homemade cakes, croissants and cereals.

The Monna Lisa restaurant has seasonal menus that varies depending on the produce in their organic vegetable garden, and the meats available from the local suppliers. Tuscan dishes are served with a contemporary twist and chef Cristina is happy to cater for any special dietary requirements. Enjoy your meal on the panoramic terrace, which offers stunning views of the valley. 

The estate has produced several award-winning wines, which can be enjoyed during your stay. The Chianti Classico is particularly delicious, and is what the region is famous for.
