Villa Vignamaggio

Via Petriolo 5, Greve in Chianti, Tuscany, 50022, Italy

Reputed to be the birthplace of the woman made famous by Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, and used as the setting of Kenneth Branagh's 1993 film, Much Ado About Nothing, Villa Vignamaggio has origins in the 14th century. This historic estate, which includes the main building and two small cottages, is surrounded by manicured classical Italian gardens. Some rooms have exposed beams, whereas others have the genuine ancient plaster walls that faux-paint treatments attempt to replicate. The villa also produces some very fine wines; ask about tastings and tours at the reception desk.
