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 wi-fi Internet access 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.
Available upon arrival
Five nights here felt like one.
The breathtaking Tuscan scenery, the warm Italian hospitality, the spacious modern room, the gorgeous main villa, and mostly, the one-and-only-team of Andrea & Mom & bro & staff & 2 dogs & hundreds and thousands of fireflies and stars along the trail leading home in our nightly strolls, made time fly.
Luckily, fleeting time does sometimes stay for the wise and fortunate.
One trip here will last you a lifetime.
Nous avons passé quelques jours dans ce refuge, ce havre de paix à quelques kilomètres de sienne. Quelle magnifique découverte !L'accueil et les attentions d'Andrea et Alessandro nous ont permis de profiter de cette belle Toscane, et de nous sentir réellement accueillis. Ces deux frères incarnent parfaitement ce que la passion et l'amour du travail bien fait peut créer. La vue sur vignes et les oliviers est incroyable. Un excellent souvenir !
My newly married wife and I started our Italian honeymoon at Villa Di Geggiano. In summary, our start could not have been better.
Villa Di Geggiano is a quick 15 minute drive from the train / bus station in Siena and costs around 15 Euro one way. Taxi can be called in with a 5-10 minute notice at the Villa.
Alessandro welcomed us with a nice bottle of Chianti from the estate and a quick tour of the room and information about the area and things to do. He had even arranged a few basic breakfast food items for our comfortable stay. The kitchen was very well equipped for any cooking etc we wanted to do. The entire house was very clean, large and modern. The yard overlooking the plantation was typical beautiful Tuscany rolling hill landscape and very quiet, peaceful and secluded.
We rented a car from the local Hertz in Sienna. Alessandro even dropped us off at the Hertz and helped us get the rental and get started.
The old mansion on the estate is historic and a national monument. Even the Pope stayed there a couple centuries ago. The estate tour given by Alessandro's nephew, Gregorio was great. It was a perfect setting for our honeymoon.
I highly recommend staying at the Villa do Geggiano if you are looking for a perfect Tuscan countryside experience.
We just returned from a very short stay at Villa di Geggiano. We fell head over heels in love with the villa the moment we started driving up the magical drive-way to the house. it's totally something out of a movie or a book, It's so beautiful, the photos honestly don't do it any justice. Their son Gregorio helped us find the house as we were hopelessly lost, he even drove to meet us from where we were. He also gave us an amazing tour of their house, telling us the history behind every painting and family heirloom. Gregorio also helped us start the fireplace by picking wood from the grounds as it was a chilly night. The guesthouse far exceeded our expectation as it was very modern yet very Tuscan and warm. I'm already planning our next vacation at the villa, i would highly recommend it to anyone.
We stayed 4 nights at Villa di Geggiano on our Honeymoon. The pictures could not be more accurate - it's beautiful. As long as you are willing to do a little bit of driving (about a 15 minute drive into the heart of Siena) it is the perfect home base in Tuscany! Andrea was a wonderful host - he even shared a bottle of the vineyard's wine! (which was delicious)
Andrea was very easy to communicate with, and even though they could not be there on the day of arrival, their son Gregorio greeted us warmly.
He was quick to assist with directions via text and phone when we got lost. As an aside, the Villa is actually located just outside of Ponte a Bozzone and not Castelnuovo Berardenga as we thought - probably obvious to locals but to a North American traveller who may misunderstand how places are described in address listings, like us, this resulted in us driving 40 minutes more than needed.
The Villa and grounds were as beautiful as the pictures. We even got more than expected on arrival when Gregorio came in with some groceries for the fridge, a bottle of wine and a traditional snack.
The Villa was well located in the wine country, remote enough to feel distanced from the city yet easy access to Siena if you wanted. The closest restaurant came recommended by Gregorio and was so good we went both nights and enjoyed coffee there in the mornings too!
The stay included a tour of the family estate, a national heritage site with a grand history. This private museum was a fantastic addition to our stay and should not be missed. I would most definitely stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend the property to friends.

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.
