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.

Breakfast is served in the dining
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.
