Top Secret

The architecture, the Renaissance atmosphere and the vineyards all around.

Origins

The Villa was built by the Machiavelli family and designed by Michelangelo, the Renaissance master, in the 14th century. Niccolo Machiavelli wrote "The Prince" at his studio in Albergaccio, which was connected to Machiavelli Villa via an internal path.
The property was sold to the current owner in 2001. They invest a huge amount of money to renovate the villa and to restore it to its former splendour. 
Due to its historical significance, the original planning documents are conserved at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.

The Review

History and culture lovers fall for the classic beauty of this villa built by the Machiavelli family. They experience the lavish lifestyle of Italian aristocrats from the Renaissance, wandering around marble columns, gilt-edged mirrors over fireplaces, paintings, frescoes walls and exquisite furniture filled with pieces of porcelain.
The idyllic setting creates the perfect backdrop for a Tuscan wedding or a luxury getaway. The perfect location of Villa Machiavelli enables guests to easily explore Florence, San Gimignano and the city of Siena. It is also a great place to go for a wine tour and to learn about Chianti Classico.
The villa is all about ‘Art de vivre’. The fully-furnished frescoed terrace with glorious views invite guests to al-fresco dinners prepared by the private chef. Foodies are delighted by the menu which changes every week to showcase the best of Tuscany cuisine. It is also possible to take a private cooking class to learn the tricks of Mediterranean cuisine.
Not to feel guilty, you can exercise in the gym and you have the choice to swim in the indoor or outdoor swimming pool. Then, you can pamper yourself in the marble Jacuzzi or in the wellness centre composed of 3 treatment rooms, a steam room and a sauna.
