Dreamy Renaissance hideaway with distant Florence views
Stand in the magnificent arched loggia and gaze out over a private Tuscan vineyard to the distant Florence skyline. Welcome to Villa Mangiacane – a sybaritic retreat made for some decadent Italian living.
Know It All
Hit the Spot
Set among vineyards and olive groves 12 km from Florence.
Come here for...
• A sybaritic and stylish Tuscan retreat just 30 minutes from Florence. • Arty and extravagant surrounds. • The priceless distant views of Florence at dusk from the upstairs loggia.
Villa Mangiacane has a mini-gym, two open air swimming pools and a covered pool, a state-of-the-art spa and mountain bikes for hire.
Good to know
Rooms are ultra stylish, if not huge.
26 rooms and suites
Plush designer rooms come with beautiful artworks, decor and bed linens.
Book a terrace suite for a room with a view if budget allows: we adored our top-floor terrace suite with a mezzanine bedroom and Tuscan vistas. Deluxe rooms and Junior suites are also a treat, with every comfort and wonderful views over the Villa Mangiacan's vineyards.
Eat & Drink
Chef Massimo Bocus serves Italian cuisine with an international flair, and outdoor summer dining offers fantastic views of the distant Florentine skyline. The food matches up too, with dishes such as spinach gnocchi with fresh zucchini, ricotta, mint and ground black pepper. International flavours are given an ‘Italian job,' and Irish lamb comes encrusted with herbs, fennel and fresh mint pesto.
Buffet breakfast is served until 10:30am. Choose from a sumptuous selection of Italian pastries, meats and cheeses.
Available 24 hours a day.
See & Do
If the body beautiful is your prime concern, there's mountain biking and a fitness centre here. A trip into Renaissance Florence and its feast of galleries, churches and museums is surely a must, as is a tour of local vineyards and wine cellars. Hot-air balloon trips over the Tuscan landcape are also easily arranged. If you can't tear yourself away from the haven of the hotel, that's fine too.
The Taj Mahal comes to Tuscany in Villa Mangiacane's brand new Nadushka spa, with its exotic Asian-inspired decor. Soothe body and soul with holistic beauty products made from local ingredients, have one of the many pampering massages on offer or turn up the heat in the sauna and steam room.
2 July and 16 August
Enjoy the thrills (and many) spills of Siena’s world famous Palio horse races.
More thrills, and a big explosion at Florence’s Scoppio del Carro. This is where a dove-shaped rocket is fired from the cathedral to blow up a flower-filled cart in the square, much to the delight of spectators.
