Let me start by saying the rooms are nice. But when you buy 4 - 5 star you expect 4 - 5 star amenities and accommodations. The rooms are at best 3+ stars. However the main issue we had was the lack of customer service and total cluelessness of the staff. Our breakfast location changed every morning. We didn't find...

Best kept secret in Chianti. The staff was super friendly and the location is perfect for a quick getaway from the city of Florence. I come back and stay here in a heartbeat. I would recommend doing the wine tasting with the resident SOMM.

Debate came to the conclusions I must warn others of comments posted : Read the bad ones - and since we have been there twice and it's gotten worse it is worse still - and believe them - it's never worth the money they charge. Ad the good ones - invariably from South Africa - and you know these people...

We stayed in the Villa Mazzei, which although pleasant is not five star. So what is missing... coffee making facilities in the room and no where to grab an early morning coffee. The shower in our room didn't work. They 'fixed it'. It still didn't work. We moved rooms. Still no hot water and just a dribble. We removed the...

We stayed here in September as a stop on a 10-day vacation throughout Italy. The property is beautiful but we found a few pros and cons to our stay. Pros: the pool area and grounds are really beautiful. The complimentary breakfast buffet was better than average (warmed croissants!) and the two meals we had in the restaurant were delicious. The...

A private cooking class at Villa Mangiacane with Chef Francesco Lagi is an unforgettable Tuscan experience! In the ancient cucina, with its wood-burning oven and stone walls, we learn a little history of Tuscan cuisine, the importance of quality, local, ingredients, and just enjoy the incredible food and friendship. Chef Lagi is a master of Tuscan cuisine. He has a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A unique villahotel, where every room is different, from cardinal-red opulence of Medici or Borgia times via african art, sculpture and paintings to ladies rooms with pastell yellow, green and rosè. Guest will enjoy the view from the grand loggia or the first floor loggia over our vineyards and olive groves to the cupola of Florence cathedral. Two pools, an indoor restaurant and the herbal garden al fresco dining invite to stop and enjoy florentine and italian as well as international cuisie. The fluidum of long bygone days will be reawakened when you look at the frescoes and remind yourself, that Nicolo Machiavelli lived and worked here over 500 years ago , and it is purported that Michelangelo did some work during the 7 year's stay of Machiavelli stay here. Add to all that the winery, tasting wines at leisure in our barrique cellar or try our olive oil during our cooking classes -you have let yourself in for an unique stay with us. ... more   less
