This restored 18th century villa in Tuscany emanates grandeur from a bygone area. Originally used by noble families as a country retreat, the estate is ideally situated to explore the cultural gems and scenic wonders of Tuscany.

With antique furnishings, grand hallways, and Palladian style design, the estate exudes refinery and elegance, with plenty of spaces for guests to unwind. The remodelled kitchen and formal dining room make meals something to look forward to. In the warmer months, dining al fresco on the expansive terrace beside the lemon trees, or beneath a romantic canopy of foliage with stunning views of the countryside is the real treat.

All seven bedrooms boast original charm and the ground floor bedroom and en-suite bathroom are set up for disabled access. Those relaxing in the upper living room will also enjoy privileged views of the ancient village of Monteriggioni from the balcony. Outside within the 1,000 sqm park, a private pool surrounded by olive and cypress trees invites true relaxation.

You’ll find ancient castles, cosy cafes, and markets in Staggia Senese and Poggibonsi, plus endless activities and attractions within short reach from the villa; from the art town of Siena and vineyards of Chianti, to a multitude of medieval villages in between.

Ground Floor

The ground floor boasts great staterooms typical of the 18th century villas inspired by the Palladian style.

On the right side of the large entrance is a wide, bright living room which is the largest and oldest section of the house (120 sq.m.). Characterized by its great vaults, the living room is enhanced by a unique fireplace in green marble and is furnished with luxurious and antique furniture. From here, a glass door leads outside to the sunny terrace where several lemon plants are housed.

On the left side of the entrance, you'll find an elegant well-lit dining room with three windows overlooking the Villa's gardens. From the dining room you can access the kitchen, which has been completely renovated and is composed of a wide marble counter-top. The kitchen has an independent service entrance behind the villa. It comes fully equipped with filtered water, five ring stovetop, electric oven, cooking utensils, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and a refrigerator with freezer.

There is also a double bedroom located on the ground floor with en-suite bathroom. Both are fully equipped for disabled access.

First Floor

The staircase opens onto a grand living room with access to a balcony, from which you can enjoy an exclusive view of Monteriggioni. This air-conditioned living room leads to the first of three double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. A large and bright hallway leads to the other three bedrooms, two twin bedrooms with shared bathroom and one double bedroom with en-suite bathroom.

Each bedroom has been furnished with attention to details, retaining the charm and refined atmosphere of Villa Vinci.

* The second floor, with separate access is an apartment used by the caretaker who is extremely discrete, and is always available for assistance. We want to underline that, where not otherwise indicated, all internal and external spaces are at the exclusive guests disposal.

Outdoor Grounds

The villa is surrounded by a fully fenced park of 1000 sqm. In the large area facing the front of the villa is a beautiful gazebo suitable for outdoor dining. To the sides of the villa, guests can enjoy relaxing in the elegant terrace, where the lemon trees are housed and amid the romantic grove of cedars and holm-oaks.

In a secluded area to the back of the villa, nestled among cypress and olive trees, is the private swimming pool surrounded by a large green lawn.

Villa Vinci is set in the perfect location to explore Chianti and Tuscany. Chianti is a vast hilly area located in the centre of Tuscany. The land was originally farmed thousands of years ago by both the Etruscans and Romans, They worked the land to produce olive oil and wine, shaping the countryside of modern Tuscany.

The Chianti area includes the medieval towns of Castellina, Radda, Greve, Castelnuovo Berardenga and Gaiole. Villa Vinci's central location provides the exclusive opportunity to visit the many towns of this rich and varied area of Tuscany.

From the terrace of the villa, guests can admire the beautiful medieval castle walls that surround the village of Monteriggioni. The town still preserves most of its 13th century-era buildings and provides unique examples of a medieval Tuscan town.

On the edge of an extensive plain and at the foot Monte Maggio near Villa Vinci, guests can visit the abbey of Abbadia a Isola, a rare example of a Romanesque church in the Siena area. It is composed of three naves and three apses, surrounded by a small village and the ruins of medieval fortifications. Inside the church, guests can see important frescoes that have been carefully preserved.

Explore the land between the two most important cities of Tuscany, Siena and Florence. Guests should not miss touring San Gimignano. The most striking features of San Gimignano are the thirteen medieval towers that overlook the valley and mark the skyline of the town. Walking through the streets of the village, guests willl breathe in the atmosphere of the small workshops of artists, craftsmen, potters and goldsmiths.

A visit to the old town of Certaldo, whose origins date back to 6th century AD, is highly recommended. The town is mostly famous for being the birthplace of the poet Giovanni Boccaccio and it produces delicious lesser-known special onions.

For those who want to explore off the main roads, a drive along the Via Volterrana, with its unusual landscape, hills with continuous ups and downs and curve after curve will provide the perfect escape. The driving experience is very different from what is commonly known of Tuscany. A must-see along this route is the town of Volterra. It dates back to the 3rd century BC, and to enter it, guests must pass under the famous gate Porta dell'Arco. This is a unique example of Etruscan construction still in perfect condition.

Other Activities:
In the nearby area there are many outdoor activities, from horse riding to mountain biking and hiking.

Wine lovers cannot miss the opportunity to follow wine tours in the Chianti Classico area and in the rich areas of Montepulciano and Montalcino, where the high quality Brunello and Nobile wines are produced.

For those who want to play golf, the Abbadia Golf Club of Colle Val d'Elsa, just 8 km from the villa, offers a 6-hole path from where guests can enjoy a splendid view of Colle Val d'Elsa and San Gimignano.

Tennis fans can find, just 2 km in waking distance from the villa, the Tennis Club in the town of Staggia Senese, which offers the chance to play in an open or covered field.

For anyone wishing to enjoy a relaxing thermal bath, the Terme di Petriolo can be accessed free of charge.

Just 30 minutes away from the villa, near Castelnuovo Berardenga, there is a go-kart circuit available for children or adults who want to try this fun experience.

Finally, a visit to the enchanting Abbazia di San Galgano, surrounded by natural reserves, is one of the best examples of Cistercian Gothic style in Italy. It is famous for the absence of its roof and for the presence of "the sword in the stone" which gave birth to many legends.

  • Top-notch, beautiful villa

    on 16/04/2020

    What a trip! This is a top-notch, beautiful villa located just outside Siena and Monteriggioni--you can see the walled city of Monteriggioni from the villa. The villa is air conditioned and has a nice private pool on site. For an additional fee, the proprietor will provide breakfast and dinner - options at least some members of my family took advantage of every morning and evening of a 14-day stay. The dinners have four courses and include wine and three types of locally made after-dinner drinks. The food was delicious and varied day-to-day. Tomasso, is friendly and helpful, provides great recommendations, and by making reservations for us at great restaurants nearby and in Siena. The villa has a beautiful patio for enjoying after dinner drinks (be sure to try the limoncello and other privately bottled Villa Vinci apertifs provided with dinner). The villa also has a washer/dryer unit, allowing you to pack less for your stay. Twelve of us visited and there was plenty of room. From the villa, we made many day trips including to Volterra, Monteriggioni, Siena, Pisa, Castellina in Cianti, and Florence. The Foresteria winery is a short 5 minute drive away and a great place for lunch or dinner as well. An unforgettable vacation to an amazing location.

  • We cannot say enough good things about Villa Vinci.

    on 16/11/2019

    We cannot say enough good things about Villa Vinci. The villa retains all the classic elegance you would desire, but with updated bathrooms and climate control that provide the modern comforts we don't want to give up! Beds are comfortable, with excellent linens. Cleanliness is exceptional. We received a warm welcome from Tomasso, who was always available to answer questions or provide advice on restaurants. We were planning our next visit before we departed.

  • Tuscan dream come true

    on 10/09/2019

    Villa Vinci was our home for two glorious weeks, August 24- September 7. Situated right between Siena and Florence, we were in close proximity to many hill towns, each one with its own personality and distinction. The shadows played on the hills all day long, leaving tiny Monteriggioni glowing golden in the late afternoon...the views from the villa were enchanting. My day started before sunrise, with the sound of distant roosters, my journal and an espresso on the terrace . Our family of 15 joined us, our family ages 23 thru 75, all so comfortable in the beautiful bedrooms and inviting common rooms. The pool was a great way to end the day. Although we (the older set) used drivers and taxis to get around, the others easily made their way with rental cars. Chiara and Tommasso prepared delicious breakfast choices for all of us each morning - something new every day...a bowl of fresh figs, homemade preserves, freshest eggs addition to the obligatory cheeses and meats, yogurts and breads. Dinners prepared by Chiara and served by Tommasso were delicious and perfectly presented...the wines flowed freely! We were fortunate in being able to have the whole family on the terrace for our two big dinners together - truly magical evenings! Villa Vinci, with Chiara and Tommasso, made our Tuscan dream come true.

  • Possibly the best property we have ever stayed in

    on 03/09/2019

    We are a group of friends who have rented luxury properties on many continents for many years and without a doubt this is the best value for money and possibly the best property we have ever stayed in. From the beautiful building to the well-appointed furnishings, beautiful Tuscan setting, fantastic outdoor pool area and lovely hosts, every expectation was met and surpassed. I cannot recommend this property strongly enough.

  • Wholeheartedly recommend

    on 30/07/2019

    Villa Vinci is magical and well positioned location to explore and experience Tuscany. Tommaso and Chiara are perfect hosts and help make your trip memorable. The Villa is grand and has the amenities needed to make your stay very special. The pool is a great place to relax after having a special day in Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, or Monteriggioni. The town of Staggia has a market for supplies and delicious restaurants. We had two dinners at the Villa prepared by Chiara that were beyond our expectations. The multiple course meals were so delicious and full of flavors of Tuscany. I’m still dreaming about the pesto lasagna. Villa Vinci is a magical place I wholeheartedly recommend and hope to return to someday.

  • I wish I could have stayed longer!

    on 26/06/2019

    I had an amazing experience staying at Villa Vinci. The premises were truly beautiful and Tommasso and his family were amazing and made you feel very welcome. The villa was situated in a picturesque hillside allowing for great views of Tuscany, while still being close enough to Florence to make experiencing Italy very easy. I wish I could have stayed longer!

  • Lovely views

    on 24/04/2019

    Tommaso and his family were excellent hosts. We enjoyed a meal and a cooking class from his wife. The location has lovely views. Rooms were very spacious and clean.

  • Our advice? Pick Villa Vinci!

    on 18/09/2018

    We cannot imagine a better villa from which to explore the delights of Tuscany. Our hosts were welcoming and simply lovely people. The villa was large, perfectly and lovingly appointed, bright and comfortable for the ten of us. We ate and drank well both at the villa and in nearby Staggia (Roberto at Nostrano was awesome!), and walked all over the area even as far as Monterrigioni. Tommaso provided us excellent taxi contacts to get to the train at Poggibonsi to go to Florence, and helped us out with food shopping and even picked us some fresh basil from their garden. Our advice? Pick Villa Vinci!

  • This wonderful home will absolutely amaze you

    on 10/04/2018

    Unless you regularly stay in 18th Century Italian villas, this wonderful home will absolutely amaze you. My wife and I, and three other couples, spent five glorious nights at Villa Vinci in April 2018. Our jaws dropped as Tomasso gave us a tour when we arrived. Everything about Villa Vinci is breath taking. The beds and accommodations are first rate, the views and grounds are lovely, and the location is fantastic. Tomasso and Chiara are perfect hosts, and Chiara is phenomenal cook. For a very reasonable cost she cooked a four-course Italian meal for us that was to die for. The dinner included wine and dessert liquors, and Chiara accommodated my need to be gluten free. The dinner was one I will never forget. We recommend Villa Vinci wholeheartedly!

  • Beautiful week

    on 25/09/2017

    We had a beautiful week in Tuscany staying at villa Vinci. This villa has lost of space and most bedrooms are en suite. The couple who own it can organise wonderful meals to eat in which we did twice, with plentiful wine and liquors. The food was very Tuscan and lovely. Although the villa is 2 km from the village it is walkable in daylight but at night we took car to a local restaurant which was very good. You can easily visit Sienna by train (15 mins) and we took car to San Gimmigano and Volterra. The pool at villa is not heated but for hardy Scottish people it was fine on the sunny days .

  • Raise a glass and cheer Villa Vinci!

    on 19/09/2016

    It was an amazing week long visit to Tuscany and we stayed in this blissful countryside estate. Villa Vinci was a fabulous place to take a break from the hectic, fast-paced world. This retreat was full of history, artwork, comfortable furnishings, a beautiful pool, and gorgeous vistas. The villa had plenty of room for family and guests. The bedrooms were lovely with individual a/c controls which was nice for the hotter evenings. There was a space for alfresco dining and the living room areas were spacious, warm, and welcoming. It was easy to take day trips from the villa. There were towns with in 10 miles and Florence was less than an hour away. It was helpful to have a GPS for longer road trips. Those of us on that were on this amazing, beautiful week's journey continue to raise a glass and cheer Villa Vinci!

  • Recommend it highly

    on 18/06/2016

    We actually stayed at Villa Vinci for six weeks beginning in June of 2016. It was even a nicer place than we expected - spacious, immaculate, bright rooms with plenty of living space for family and friends to be together. We had wonderful meals in the patio that were prepared by the owner's wife. We celebrated special birthdays, a special anniversary at that time. The pool was wonderful and the grounds were spacious with plenty of outdoor furniture in which to relax. The owners were attentive to our every request and their living on the property made their responses immediate. We hope to spend another happy summer at Villa Vinci in the future and recommend it highly. The location in Tuscany was excellent and provided close access to some of the best hill towns.

  • Beyond expectations

    on 18/09/2015

    Our entire experience at Villa Vinci was beyond expectations. We travelled with 4 generations, ages 3 1/2 to 85! The villa was spectacular, spacious & immaculate. The pictures on line don't do it justice. Tommasso & Chiara were the best, any questions, they were there to answer. They were extremely accommodating & phenomenal cooks! I actually took some recipes back to the U.S.
