Villa Mangiacane: The Ultimate Countryside Escape

- Melanie Zieba,


If you are looking for an unforgettable holiday full of history, art, and an idyllic countryside setting, look no further then the Villa Mangiacane nestled in the heart of the winemaking region of Chianti Classico.

Originally built by the Machiavelli family in the 15th century and bearing the unmistakable hand of the legendary Renaissance master, Michelangelo, the classic beauty of this majestic villa will leave every guest full of unforgettable memories.

Set on a cypress shaded hill just south of Florence, this location is perfect for discovering the most fascinating attractions, museums and picturesque settings in the surrounding area.

The Villa Mangiacane offers 26 individually designed rooms and suites all with stunning views overlooking the country side, gardens or vineyard. Each space is full of original artwork and furniture collected from around the globe emulating the comforts of a private home.


As you wander the property you’ll soon discover the rich art and history that it holds from the beautifully resorted pastel-colored frescoes that ornament the Main Villa, the 220 original Shona sculptures throughout the property and works by Petter Hegre on display are all but a few of the Villa Mangiacane’s special touches waiting to be discovered.


Indulge your senses during your stay and savor the fabulous cuisine created by Villa Mangiacane’s private Chef Massimo Bocus. The food capitalizes on traditional Tuscan ingredients accompanied by their very own Oli d’Olivoil produced from handpicked olives from their olive grove on the property.  And for the chef in all of us, cooking classes with Chef Bocus are also available teaching you how to approach food and fully experience the heart and soul of Tuscany.


A visit to Italy is never complete without a great glass of wine and being that Villa Mangiacane Estate spans 306 hectares, an exceptional wine is easy to come by. Respecting the tradition of Tuscan winemaking, Villa Mangiacane also embraces modern techniques and tastes producing mainly Chianti classic DOCG wines.


After a long day of exploring the villa and surrounding area, take a dip in one of Villa Mangiacane’s three pools or relax with a treatment at their Nadushka Spa. Offering the ultimate experience in tranquility and pampering for the mind, body and spirit, Nadushka Spa has a large menu of treatments using only the finest natural, preservative-free products leaving you always feeling revitalized and blissful.


And when you book your stay here exclusively though Kiwi Collection, the Villa Mangiacane will make your visit even more memorable with a bottle of Prosecco and fresh fruit upon arrival and of course a complementary upgrade when available.
