Villa Ghirlandaio is a prestigious 14th century property and was once the summer residence of the Ghirlandaio’s, perhaps the best-known family of Renaissance artists.

This enchanting home hosted the likes of Michelangelo, who studied the fine art of painting in the workshops here at that time. Botticelli, Raffaello and Pontormo also graced the estate with their continual presence.

Villa Ghirlandaio can comfortably host up to 38 guests in 20 magnificent bedrooms on the estate. All of the bedrooms throughout the estate feature king-sized beds, luxurious bed-linen, stylish bathrooms in marble with either a rain shower or bath tub, a walk-in wardrobe and a personal safe for important documents. The accommodation is located over five splendid buildings on the estate; the main villa, the farmhouse, the gallery, the olive press and the studio. Each of these buildings has been lovingly restored with quality antique furniture to create luxurious living areas in keeping with their original use.

The living areas are on the first floor and offer two sublime living rooms, a library/study space, a dining room for up to 12 people and a large, modern kitchen with an adjoining pantry.
