Villa Rignana - Historical estate in Chianti
Nestled in the heart of Chianti Classico area, between Florence and Siena, and surrounded by vineyards, Villa Rignana is exactly what you would expect from a film by Bertolucci.
The Villa was a monastery of the XII century that has been restored and furnished, combining antique furniture pieces with pieces collected during our travels.
An integral part of our lives here are the animals: four friendly dogs, four elegant horses, two cute ponies, a shy cat, some chickens and three geese who all live in harmony with us.
To complete the picture, the aromatic herb garden and endless varieties of roses, the scent from the kitchen and the clink of glasses of local wine make this villa in Tuscany a real utopia.
There are double rooms, all different, with private bathrooms, large living rooms with fireplaces, a well-stocked library, gazebos, pergolas, large garden with swimming pool and tennis court. In the hall of the first floor there is also a beautiful grand piano for guests who feel inspired.
At Villa Rignana, in the pure tradition of the Italian Dolce Vita, you can enjoy breakfast under the gazebo, tea flavored with mint from our garden, fresh fruit from the orchard, olive oil and wine from our vineyards. Everything is provided for you to live the Italian experience of being a guest at a friend's place, with, in addition, the comfort of a luxury hotel.

Food & Wine
Whether it's a dinner with wild boar from Antica Macelleria Falorni, pasta with truffles and a florentine T-bone steak Dario Checchini, tiramisu made of goose eggs, or a simple pizza cooked in a wood oven, the kitchen is always healthy and genuine.
Olive oil, tomatoes, asparagus, fennel, zucchini, artichokes, rosemary, thyme, sage, beef, wild boar and wine, are all fresh products, a few steps from the kitchen! With these ingredients, the chef of the house and I create for you exceptional Tuscan dishes, proposing ancient Tuscan recipes handed down from generation to generation.
Against the backdrop of the great combinations of food and wine produced on site, the dining table at Villa Rignana has been the scene of many wonderful conversations, captured in stunning photos and in the many memories.
