Renaissance splendor in the heart of Tuscany


We at Villa Mangiacane take great pride in our Art & History as it makes us who we are. From the centuries old frescoes, to our exquisite Shona sculptures from Zimbabwe – we have a plethora of artwork both new and old by talented individuals for our guests to observe throughout their stay with us.

It seamlessly ties together the combination of Italian, African and Indian inspiration and ultimately adds to the eclectic style we showcase around the property, with whispers that Michelangelo was involved in the redesigning of the villa. It also pays homage to the respective nationalities of our staff which we consider family.
