Villa Machiavelli,Chianti, Tuscany located in the Chianti Classico wine region and yet less that 10 miles from the heart of Florence. 

This magnificent 15th century villa built by the infamous Machiavelli family bears the unmistakable work of the Renaissance master, Michelangelo. Set in 600 acres of grounds comprised of flourishing vineyards and olive groves, its wines are renown.

The house is filled with antiques and paintings, guests can feel the noble atmosphere of a castle, yet are able to enjoy all the modern amenities and comforts including a spa, gym, indoor pool and 2 exterior pools. The interiors are airy and luxurious, decorated in a sumptuous style, featuring its own private collection of contemporary art. The atmosphere remains that one of a private, luxurious home.

The 10 individually designed rooms and suites offer stunning views of the countryside, gardens or vineyards. A stay in the main villa will surround you with original Renaissance art and terraces offering sweeping views of the Tuscan landscape while the guest villa features private plunge pools.

The Spa is designed to offer the ultimate experience in tranquility and pampering for mind, body and spirit with its three uniquely decorated private treatment rooms. Complete with a classically inspired indoor heated pool, the size and shape provides a perfect setting for a rejuvenating dip, or a regimen of laps. A state of the art steam room and sauna serve to perfectly complement the range of services and amenities. The marriage of this luxurious space and the exclusive use of holistic beauty products guarantee to provide a most rewarding luxury spa experience.

The theme of the cookery classes offered by the villa staff, is to experience the heart and soul of Tuscany through food, history, and culture. The cooking lessons are about much more than a list of ingredients and how to cook them. Food and wine should be enjoyed with gusto, and that can begin with the preparation of a meal.

The classical beauty of this estate, combined with its history, its art and its magically idyllic countryside location close to Florence creates a perfect backdrop for corporate events, family get togethers and romantic weddings.

Note: For large parties or special events, the property offers the equally spectacular “Vineyard Villa,” adjacent to Machiavelli’s entrance gates. The Vineyard Villa offers 19 additional suites.

WHAT OUR GUESTS ARE SAYING

"Isle Blue is everything they say they are. They were a pleasure to deal with and were very responsive and informative. The pictures on their website are exactly what you end up getting and they provide full concierge service throughout your stay. My family and I had an amazing time and before we even returned home, we went to the Isle Blue website to check out their inventory for our next vacation. They really are just that good!"
