Villa Tizzano is a magnificent, imposing villa and estate set in one of Tuscany’s most spectacular locations: nestled among Chianti’s verdant softly rolling hills and ample valleys, it rises completely immersed in the luxuriant countryside and yet at just a brief driving distance from Florence. This spectacular property, privately owned by an important Florentine noble family, comprises extensive grounds and a marvelous 16th century villa, a splendid example of typical aristocratic Tuscan architecture and style, with its own, spellbinding, dreamlike Tower, too!

The villa features elegant, truly sumptuous, common spaces, and boasts priceless artworks and magnificent pieces of period furniture. The villa’s first and second floors comprise lovely, ample bedrooms, all with state of the art en-suite or adjacent bathrooms. Bedrooms are exquisite, carefully and lovingly furnished and tastefully decorated. The majority of the bedrooms are located on the first and second floor, and two are in the villa’s striking tower.

Periodically restored and refurbished, the whole villa is a marvelously harmonious blend of ancient beauty and modern comfort: though it includes all latest modern facilities the villa perfectly maintains its original architecture and the whole estate boasts a genuine, unspoiled, character and naturally gracefully, authentic Tuscan aristocratic style.

Each and every corner is characterized by sophisticated, yet unpretentious, elegance and refined old-world charm: stupendous trompe l’oeuil dècor, gleaming parquet floors and walls whitewashed in soft hues enhance the overall exquisite atmosphere. Common spaces comprise a welcoming sitting room/library (with excellent WIFI connection) and a TV room, which guarantee all guests enjoy moments of relaxation and privacy; as well as a truly magnificent dining room, with an awe inspiring painted terracotta floor and gorgeous living room, with a lovely period fireplace. The villa also features an additional sitting room on the second floor, with a treadmill (ideal for fitness fans!), a delightful, fully equipped kitchen and charming outdoor spaces, ideal for alfresco meals and relaxation.

Spectacularly located amidst the world-celebrated rolling Chianti hills, the villa boasts 360° views of the luxuriant vineyards and fields all around, and down to Florence’s amazing skyline of churches and cupolas.

Outside, the grounds are extensive and luxuriant. Sprawling over 10.000 square metres (107600 square feet) the estate comprises shimmering vineyards, a bountiful orchard and vegetable garden, and awe-inspiring formal gardens. The gardens, designed in the 1930’s by the famed English landscape architect Cecil Pinsent, lead to the front outdoor terrace, ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining. The grounds also boast an extraordinary twelve by nine meter infinity pool: strategically positioned, it offers unrivaled views of the fairytale-like surroundings.

This is a sublime, exceptional oasis-like retreat, full of authentic character, ancient heritage, natural grace and charm, for unforgettable family reunions, dreamlike destination weddings or exciting, lively parties of fun-loving friends.
