This stunning Tuscan vineyard has been a working farm for over 600 years, producing grapes, olives, and cypress trees. Located in the Chianti Classico region, the sprawling 250 hectares estate is home to a marvellous Renaissance villa that overlooks ancient hamlets, wide rolling hills, and lush green forests. The villa was built by the Gherardini family in the XIV century, the most famous of family members being Mona Lisa Gherardini, who was painted by Leonardo da Vinci.
The farm offers rooms, suites, and apartments in the Villa, as well as three old farmhouses for larger parties. Take a stroll through the Renaissance and organic vegetable gardens, while you wait for dinner at the Mona Lisa Restaurant, or sample some of their best varietals over a fresh and salty Focaccia, made to order with their home-made olive oil. After staying at this special place, you are sure to learn the true secret behind Mona Lisa’s smile.
