Villa di Tizzano is a splendid, 16th-century villa. The property of one of Florence’s oldest families and respected wine makers, it stands on a hill overlooking the Tizzano Chianti vineyards. The site originally housed an 11th century observation tower, which was enlarged in the 16th century, and restored in the 19th century. Once again restored and refurbished by its current owners, “Villa di Tizzano” has charming interiors, beautiful decor and tromp l’oeil effects, not to mention superb antique furniture.

The villa commands breathtaking views of rolling vineyard hills and the Florence Duomo. The picturesque, two-acre garden was designed in the 1930s by the famous English architect, Cecil Pinsent. The garden leads up to the front yard of the house and makes the perfect spot for reading, relaxing and al fresco dining.

Villa di Tizzano is the perfect luxurious place for relaxion and grand entertaining. Luminaries such as General George Patton and Elizabeth Taylor have been among its honored guests.
