An introduction to Chianti Villa

How would you describe Chianti Villa in a nutshell?

A long avenue of cypress trees lead up to this villa that must have sprung right out of an Italian Fairytale. Chianti Villa is the most charming Tuscan wedding location, a countryside villa with Italian Gardens, gazebos, a swimming pool and an atmosphere of faded glory, luxurious and yet so countryside-rustic. You can stay at the villa rental or the charming, smaller farm houses that fit between 4 to 12 people.

Please tell us a bit about the history of the villa and your family.

The villa has been in our family for over 280 years. We have found written records of it in the Vatican archives that date back as early as 1059. Through the centuries it has consistently been mentioned, as on the 11th of June 1254 when a peace treaty was signed by the Florentine delegate Maestro Brunetto Latini, tutor of Dante Alighieri. In 1555 the villa was incorporated into the Medici family possession. Later, the ownership passed on to the family of Golia, then to the family of Accarigi and then to our grandmother's family. The final transformation of the villa happened around 1700 and added an Italian-style garden, statues and fountains as well as a long alley of cypress trees that still exist. In the entrance area are two columns left from that period as well.

To you personally, what is so special about Chianti Villa?

When my mother shows our guests around and tells them about the history of the villa, I can see how amazed and happy they are about what this place means to our family. This shows me how special it is.

What would you describe your philosophy?

If there is a philosophy, it is to share the history and lifestyle of past centuries with our guests.

And the estate is a great venue for weddings, big birthday parties and other events?

Yes, it is the perfect location. In our garden you will find 2 terraced gardens divided into 4 areas with fountains and antique statues, perfect set for the reception. And in the back of the main Villa there is a romantic garden where we can organize a wonderful dinner under the trees. In the garden of the farmhouse you can relax around the infinity pool facing the marvelous vineyard and the incredible view of all the surroundings. This area is also perfect for the after-dinner party, a pizza party, a big BBQ or just dancing till the morning with all your friends! There is no time limit when we rent the entire venue to one group, we only require the music to be a bit lower after 1 am to avoid any troubles with the neighborhood.

And if there is bad weather we have the wonderful ballrooms on the ground floor of the Villa. They are big enough for 60 people seated on one imperial table. The Granary can seat up to 150 people and the Lemon tree house can seat around 50 people or up to 100 for standing cocktail or informal style lunch. The maximum capacity inside and outside is 150 people.

We also own a very intimate and romantic garden inside the medieval walled town of Monteriggioni where we often organize a picnic or wine tasting for our guests after a nice walk to Monteriggioni through the fields and woods. It is such an incredible experience!

Chianti Villa rooms & rates

The main villa is furnished very traditionally and gives our guests an idea of the warm and comfortable aristocratic way of living of the past. It is certainly a very special and unique atmosphere to be found in a holiday rental. It features a library, various sitting rooms, a dining room, a ballroom, a kitchen and a private garden and pool.

Some of the different houses on the estate were once inhabited by the wine maker, the hunting master, the carpenter or the head farmer. They have now been transformed into comfortable and peaceful holiday apartments. My personal favorite is ‘La Corte’ with its beautiful fireplace in the kitchen because I've been living there for four years before we started to rent it out to guests.

The property accommodates 38 guests divided into 6 accommodations:

Villa — 6 persons (3 double bedrooms); Tinaione Farmhouse —12 persons (6 double bedrooms ); Volta — 12 persons (6 double bedrooms ); La Corte — 4 persons (1 double bedroom, 1 twin bedroom); Casilde — 4 persons (2 double bedrooms)

Things to do in Tuscany & Monteriggioni

  • Art / Culture
  • Wine tastings
  • Cooking classes
  • Yoga classes
  • Golf
  • Tennis
  • Hiking
  • Cycling
  • Horseback riding

Activities I recommend are walking the little streets of Siena on a late afternoon, sitting in the Piazza del Campo with a drink or going to San Giminiano, Volterra or the incredible Etruscan Museum.

Then there is the adorable little village of Bagno Vignoni with its spas nearby and San Galgano, which is a huge church from the 1400s without roof that is now used for concerts on summer nights.

And you can find the best food in the world here! I’m a very good cook and all the restaurants here will provide you with an amazing sensorial experience. And I’m sure I don’t have to mention our Chianti wine because it is world-famous!

The location of Chianti Villa

Monteriggioni is 6km from Siena and 40km from Florence. Both are easily accessible via motorway or the old Chianti road running through wonderful countryside with spectacular views. I love this area because wherever you look, you find amazing views and there are many nice walks through the woods and vineyards of the estate all the way to the walled medieval town of Monteriggioni.

When is the best time to visit Tuscany?

All seasons have a particular attraction. May is fantastic because it is full of flowers and wonderful smells; summer is fantastic for swimming in the infinity pool; September is beautiful with its changing colors and clear skies; and winter is cozy and romantic and a great time for drinking wine in front of the fireplace…
