The villa's history
A classic Florentine 19th century private villa in the heart of Tuscany, built over the ruins of a medieval fortress. The estate included 33 country houses and 2 hectars of land, making it one of the largest and most importants farms in the Chianti region. The beautiful gardens were designed by architect Giuseppe Poggi, the same of Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence.
At the end of World War II, the villa was occupied by the German Army and later by the allied headquorters. As the framing land was abandoned by the poor peasants in favour of new jobs in the growing industrialization, the owner Lady Elvira Lecchini Giovannoni transformed the villa into one of the very first hotels in the Chianti region.
