Villa Description

The views justify the trip to Italy at Villa Machiavelli. Just 20 minutes outside Florence in the Chianti Classico region, the recently restored 16th-century villa combines splendid Renaissance architecture and interiors with 21st century luxuries, topped off with panoramic views of the countryside. The villa accommodates up to twenty guests, but larger groups can rent the separate vineyard villa for more space.

You’ll feel like Italian nobility at the fully staffed villa, formerly the home of the Machiavelli and Mazzei families. Drive in or use the helipad and explore the vineyards, olive groves and forest on the estate. Work up a sweat in the gym and cool off in the outdoor pool. For entertainment, there’s a piano, satellite TV and Wi-Fi access; for comfort, there’s air conditioning and an elevator.

The villa’s magazine worthy interiors are furnished on a grand scale—think chandeliers, gilt-edged mirrors over the fireplaces and Renaissance style paintings and frescoes lining the walls. Thick carpets cover the parquet and stone floors, and antique furniture and objets d’art fill the rooms. Private chef service can be arranged, but there’s also a fully equipped kitchen and wine cellar for your use.

Each of Villa Machiavelli’s ten bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom and air conditioning. On the ground floor, two bedrooms have king beds, one bedroom has a double bed and the Machiavelli Suite has a king bed and Jacuzzi. On the second floor, there are five bedrooms, all with king beds; one of the rooms has a mezzanine area with an additional bedroom with king bed and en-suite bathroom. The upstairs bedrooms open to a large terrace with frescoes on one side and views of the Tuscan countryside on the other.

During your stay, take time to sample the wine and olive oil produced on the estate. If you’d like to sample other regional flavors, head to the Santa Maria Novella train station, just a mile away. The museums and shopping of Florence are 15 miles away, or about 20 minutes by car, and the city’s airport is 13 miles away.

Additional Information

Machiavelli has been featured in many magazines, including Vanity Fair and Food & Wine. It offers incredibly unique spaces fit for entertaining of the grandest nature, and is perfect for weddings or other special events.

Surrounded by hills, Florence rises on the banks of the Arno River. One of the greatest art centers of Italy, Florence is home to the Accademia, where you can view Michelangelo's "David", as well as the Uffizi gallery, arguably the most important art gallery in the world. Tour the cathedral with its pink, white and green marble façade and marvel at its remarkable Duomo by Brunelleschi and the gold Paradise door of the Baptistry. Continue to the Piazza della Signoria, the political heart of Florence since the 1300s, then stroll the charming shops of Ponte Vecchio. Florence offers some of Italy's best shopping—textiles, leather goods, fashion, jewelry and ceramics are all specialties. There is nothing like enjoying a morning coffee and truffle panini at the celebrated Procacci bar before setting out for a serious morning of shopping in Via Tournabuoni. Scour the Gucci, Armani and Yves Saint Laurent outlets on the outskirts of the city.

For those wishing to explore some of Tuscany's other treasures, Florence is an ideal base of operations. Tuscany stretches along the western coast of Italy from the Apennines to the Tyrrhenian Sea—one of the best ways to see the region is by automobile. The small fortress cities are within easy driving distance of one another, and each offers its own special appeal, from San Gimignano to Pienza. Other cities to include in your excursion are Arezzo, with its grand plaza and Roman amphitheater, Lucca, with its olive groves and impressive Renaissance walls, and seaside resorts like Viareggio, Elba, and Forte de Marmi.

Siena and Pisa, both also important art cities, are also not to be missed. Siena is a beautifully preserved medieval city, constructed of checkerboard brick, and crowned by its Duomo. It was the seat of the Ghibellines who often crossed swords with the Florentine Guelfs during the 13th century. Other highlights of Siena include the beautiful Piazza del Campo, and the tower rising from the Palazzo Pubblico. A day trip to the lovely ancient city of Pisa is also a must, where you can see the famous leaning tower, and much more.
