Overview

The 15th-century main villa and its original frescoes have been restored to their former magnificence, combined with opulent, extravagant new interior décor. Once the home of the Machiavelli family and centuries later, the Mazzei family, this villa boasts a rare heritage.

Villa Machiavelli reigns over 750 acres of vineyards, olive groves and Tuscan forest. It features spectacular frescoed terraces with beautiful lounges, tables and outdoor furnishings, a swimming pool, sculpture garden and beautiful garden surroundings.

The historic beauty of this estate, along with five-star service, guarantees a truly memorable and unforgettable experience. Within the main villa, the restored original frescoes and paintings range from 15th century antiques to South African contemporary. It has been restored and decorated with a master hand. The property makes its own olive oil and fine wines. Guests can experience a legacy like no other, living in the ultimate modern luxury while residing in the same villa where ruling aristocrats of Florence once stayed. Machiavelli has been featured in many magazines, including Vanity Fair and Food & Wine. It offers incredible spaces fit for entertainment of the grandest nature, and perfect for weddings or other special events.
