This magnificent luxury villa rental in Tuscany, dating from the late 15th century and once the home of the Machiavelli family, is set in glorious Tuscan countryside amongst acres of the estate’s own vineyards, olive groves and forest. Just 12 kilometres south of Florence, not far from Greve in Chianti. Built by Cardinal Francesco Maria Machiavelli, uncle of Niccolò Machiavelli, it is said that the Renaissance master, Michelangelo, even had a hand in the design. The property benefits from uninterrupted views over the Tuscan landscape, as far as Florence - the Duomo and Giotto’s bell tower can both be seen in the distance, framed by archways, from the villa’s stunning furnished loggia.
Villa Machiavelli has been restored to all its former splendour and offers a wonderful combination of old world hospitality in historical surroundings, with modern comforts, and fine wines and olive oil produced on the estate. This luxury villa rental in Tuscany will make any vacation an unforgettable experience.
