Leonardo Tuscany


Leonardo is a beautiful, private 12-acre estate tucked away in Chianti, the heart of Tuscany.

It is the ultimate in privacy and independence. The exterior and interiors of this fine old farmhouse have been immaculately restored to very high standards by its decorator owner. Every detail of the restoration has been done with total respect for nature and for Tuscan heritage.

Walk through the long entrance hallway and you will be led to a separate living room with a fireplace and a dining room. The living area is colorful and furnished with high-quality fabrics, antiques, fine custom linens and tableware. The dining area is connected to a large state-of-the-art kitchen overlooking a beautiful terrace and the swimming pool. Also on the ground level is a spacious and bright twin bedroom with an en suite bathroom, another lovely twin bedroom with an adjacent bathroom, a study room and a library. On the first level, you'll find four comfortable and thoughtfully furnished bedrooms, all with air conditioning and en suite bathrooms, which are graciously decorated with old mirror frames and antique lamps.

Villa Leonardo is a very elegant property, ideal for an extended family or a group of friends looking for spacious accommodation, comfort, privacy and fabulous views. To enjoy the outdoors and the Tuscan countryside, horseback riding, golf and tennis are nearby. Take a day trip to Florence, just 30 minutes away, or explore several nearby villages, only 5-10 minutes' drive from the villa.

Vanessa B.G. • September 2019

Our family of 12 (including six children ages 1, 3, 3, 3, 7, and 9) stayed at Villa Leonardo over Thanksgiving holiday. We had an absolutely amazing week. Instrumental to the success of our stay was this amazing property, caretaker Margarita & her partner and our chef which made every evening effortless and delicious. The caretakers surprised us with fresh & tasty pastries, recommendations, light cleaning and even installed a baby gate for our big baby Alexander who they affectionately nicknamed Ale- a nickname he still responds to today.
I can’t wait to make this vacation a tradition. Highly recommend!
