About This Listing
The Villa di Geggiano is located in Chianti in Tuscany - one of the most beautiful regions of Italy, surrounded by lush vineyards, ancient olive groves and villages with medieval buildings and churches providing an idilic and enchanting backdrop to your vacation.
The Villa di Geggiano covers a large 50 acre estate site amongst the gently rolling hills of Tuscany, where we can boast to some of the most beautiful landscapes in the Mediterranean and to possess an ancient and rich cultural history. This is your opportunity to visit our vineyards and wine cellars and taste the great Chianti wines, to take a tour of the local walled towns, castles and parish churches between Florence and Siena, to be a spectator at the famous Palio horse race, to view the magnificent art and architecture and taste the delicious local and traditional dishes – a vacation to the Villa di Geggiano is a time to cherish and remember.
Our villa is over 400 years old and is surrounded by our working vineyard and lovingly maintained gardens. We can arrange a wide choice of activities during your visit, including air tours, cycling, horse riding, and ballooning – after which you can enjoy a peaceful respite from your busy day site-seeing, or mulling it over with a glass of Chianti wine, taking in the stunning views and enjoying our hospitality.
In one of the original garden pavilions, two luxury suites have been opened to guests. These conversions offer a quiet and private space to savour the Tuscan lifestyle. Although skilfully designed around its original features, complimenting the surrounding buildings, the rustic guesthouse contains a wealth of modern features. Guests can enjoy the use of their own cooking and dining facilities, living room and a private garden with a hot, open-air jacuzzi. The guesthouse can comfortably accommodate four people in two suites.
This charming and elegant pavilion is situated within the estate of Villa di Geggiano. Recently renovated, the pavilion contains new and modern amenities combined with contemporary furnishings. This property is an ideal retreat for travelers who want to spend some days far from the crowd in this exclusive location.
The Pavilion has a total capacity of 4 persons but it has been designed to be easily divided into two independent suites.
Each of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with bath tub and separate shower, there are two more bathrooms off the kitchen and living room. All of the bathrooms are modern and finely designed as the entire Pavilion, that has been completely refurbished by one of the Italian leading architects with the direct collaboration of the owner.
This property has a high level of modern facilities such as high-speed Internet, SAT TV, air-conditioning and heating. Outdoors the well manicured garden and olive groves offer pleasant surroundings and al fresco dining in the Pavilion private garden.
The private outdoor Jacuzzi (measuring 3x4m. can be both hot and cold water) built in an ancient stone basin and placed under the garden’s trees offers the perfect relief after a day exploring the countryside.
The owner’s villa and its gardens are a National Heritage property and the organic vineyards produce 50,000 bottles a year of Chianti Classico and Tuscan IGT.

A very lovely place, the host was also very, very friendly. We can absolutely recommend this place. In the middle of the Tuscany surrounded by vineyards and just ten minutes away from Siena (by car) it is a quite place also and it feels like a privilege to stay there.
Our experience in villa Di Geggiano was something more than wonderful. At first the apartment is new ,modern and clean, but what counts most is the outside. If what you are looking for is a quiet place, in endless vinegars then this is the place! But the real surprise is the villa itself which is a real Tuscan treasure and a tour in the inside can be even more enlightening than a visit in a museum. And all that thanks to a wonderful host who has done great gob. We will defently be back because once you ve been to the place you always dream of returning!
When can we move in? This was by far our favorite of all our stays during our 2 week, 6 location trip. To say that this property was even better than we could have expected, is a huge understatement. The thorough communication in helping us arrange our stay as well as finding the property was appreciated. We were out in the vinyards, right where we were hoping to be. Alessandro greeted us as we were on the verge of passing the property and politely showed us around the house. It was perfect! A couple days later, Gregorio gave us a tour of the gardens and the historic main house, both fascinating. We also fell in love with their 2 dogs! We were honestly sad to leave, but would be so excited to return.
Everything was wonderful, location, service and design was superb! Highly recommended!
One of the most beautiful places we have stayed, and we have stayed at 5 star hotels and Amans around the world. The residence apartments are a beautiful mix, surrounded by an ancient landscape of family owned vineyard and villa, these beautifully integrated modern lodgings pull inspiration from the natural elements surrounding it and were impeccably designed by Andrea. They have every amenity, an amazing kitchen, beautiful baths, a fireplace and incredible views. Only a short cab ride into Siena if you don’t have a car and situated in a wonderful location for day trips if you do.
Andrea was a wonderful host, taking us on a private tour of his family's estate and sharing facts about it’s history and the family’s organic wine business. We didn’t want to leave and will certainly be back!
Truly Amazing!!! While the pictures make the place look great, they truly don't even begin to do it justice!
Our host Alessandro was great and the Suite is as tranquil, luxurious, spacious, and comfortable as we could have imagined - A perfect Tuscan accommodation with a beautiful view of the moon rising over the vineyard!

About the Host, Villa Di Geggiano
Hello, I am Andrea, Villa di Geggiano has been the family home and winery of my family, the Bianchi Bandinelli, since 1527.
The Villa is just six kilometres north-east of Siena, its facade looks out onto the enchanting hills of Chianti Classico, a region of Italy world famous for its wines, natural beauty and rich history.
It was originally built in the 14th century and the gardens together with the interiors have been completely renovated and restored at the end of 18th century .
The Bandinelli family continue to manage the Villa and the precious surrounding vineyards and have recently opened two luxury guest suites to holiday visitors wanting to savour the real Tuscan lifestyle.
The Bianchi Bandinelli family welcome visitors as their personal guests and can reserve an array of exclusive entertainment including wine tastings, cultural events, guided tours, private parties and ceremonies.
The Villa has been declared a National Heritage and, in addition to tours of the Villa and it’s gardens, there are a range of activities, events and services nearby, available to visitors during their stay. A long or short visit to the Villa di Geggiano guarantees enjoyment, whether taking a stroll through the century-old cypresses of the landscaped gardens, dining by candle-light, sampling one of our 40,000 bottles of organic wine produced each year.
We can help you in arranging activities like playing tennis, horse riding, or exploring the Tuscan countryside by bicycle, balloon or classic car – the choice is yours.
In nearby Siena, Italy’s classic medieval city, there is an abundance of things to do including the famous Il Palio, a festival and horse race that takes place on the piazza itself and was featured in the James Bond movie Quantum of Solace.
Take a look around our site, fall in love with our elegant home and book your visit with us today. We look forward to seeing you and welcoming you to our 16th-century villa.
