Amidst the award winning vineyards of Chianti’s fertile Val d’Ambra region, the magnificent ten bedroom 16th Century Villa Spino is one of the most elegant and beautifully furnished large villas in the region. It is a villa of historical importance – it was a villa built by the Medici family, the family that financed and inspired the Renaissance. This phenomenal mansion offers inspiring views over the vineyards and rolling hills of Chianti and is an inspiring place to relax and call home – even if it is for just one week!
Villa Spino embodies Tuscan luxury and is blessed with large public rooms and is perfect for family reunions, gatherings of friends, weddings and corporate events. Beautifully maintained, it has been owned by a Florentine design family who have preserved the historical charm of this splendid villa by augmenting the oak beams and cotto brick floors with exquisite antiques which are elegant but at the same time comfortable. The stone walls are adorned with beautiful original paintings and lithographs collected over the family’s rich history. The linens and textiles used at Spino are of the highest quality.
The villa can be rented without any services, or if you prefer TuscanDream can provide you with daily chef service, daily maid service and English speaking concierge services. Villa Spino is one of TuscanDream’s favourite villas, one which we have rented ourselves for our own holidays – and recommend it highly!
