We stayed here in September as a stop on a 10-day vacation throughout Italy. The property is beautiful but we found a few pros and cons to our stay. Pros: the pool area and grounds are really beautiful. The complimentary breakfast buffet was better than average (warmed croissants!) and the two meals we had in the restaurant were delicious. The...

In the ancient cucina, with its wood-burning oven and stone walls, we learn a little history of Tuscan cuisine, the importance of quality, local, ingredients, and just enjoy the incredible food and friendship. Chef Lagi is a master of Tuscan cuisine. He has a...

My wife and I have stayed in Villa Mangicanie five times over the last nine years. She always talks about it at home. The difference this July is massive maybe due to the emphasis on group bookings. Firstly, the staff can vary between helpful and can't or won't be bothered. We were there for five nights and had to put...

Stunning location and building. Wine tasting was very informed and interesting. Food thought questionable, our son was sick soon after and as for value, I would rate very poor. Main courses at €20 a dish for the quality that was provided is excessive. Lots of potential in this stunning environment, the food needs to reflect this too.

Florence is such a beautiful place with gorgeous place - amazing scenery, food and wine. We have visited many places in Tuscany and so were very excited to visit friends staying at the Villa Mangiacane today. The villa is lovely with a mix of Tuscan architecture and African sculptures throughout the gardens. After walking round the gardens and swimming in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A unique villahotel, where every room is different, from cardinal-red opulence of Medici or Borgia times via african art, sculpture and paintings to ladies rooms with pastell yellow, green and rosè. Guest will enjoy the view from the grand loggia or the first floor loggia over our vineyards and olive groves to the cupola of Florence cathedral. Two pools, an indoor restaurant and the herbal garden al fresco dining invite to stop and enjoy florentine and italian as well as international cuisie. The fluidum of long bygone days will be reawakened when you look at the frescoes and remind yourself, that Nicolo Machiavelli lived and worked here over 500 years ago , and it is purported that Michelangelo did some work during the 7 year's stay of Machiavelli stay here. Add to all that the winery, tasting wines at leisure in our barrique cellar or try our olive oil during our cooking classes -you have let yourself in for an unique stay with us. ... more   less
