Villa Ardore


Description


Welcome to the romantic Villa Ardore, a magnificent traditional Tuscan estate overlooking the Italian countryside. This magical property offers sumptuous comfort for up to 18 guests in beautiful, unique bedroom suites. Villa Ardore deserves all its accolades for creating a modern, air-conditioned, luxurious estate while retaining all of the charm and splendor of its 15th-century heritage.

The large infinity pool sits comfortably on its stone terrace, surrounded by lovely gardens. The grand façade of the property and its many terraces and balconies are beautifully restored without losing any of the romantic charms of the original edifice.

The balmy aroma of lemon groves, the sweeping vista of vineyards, and the majestic towers of San Gimignano in the distance are just some of the facets of daily life within the Villa Ardore estate.

Another wonderful facet of a vacation in this sublime property is the curated wine cellar providing up to 500 bottles of the finest Italian wines. You will enjoy learning about the wines and choosing the bottles to accompany your delicious dining. There's a gorgeous bar adjacent to the heated infinity pool, where you and your fellow guests can unwind with a cocktail, wine, or refreshing mineral water on tap.

Villa Ardore has another wonderful feature: the Roman Spa. This dedicated space has a sauna, hot tub, steam room, and sensory shower. Guests can add massage and holistic therapies that can be delivered on the terrace. Bliss!

This Villa offers true luxury to guests. The bed linen is high-grade, the mattresses are superior, there are bathrobes, and each suite has blackout blinds. Technologically, the Villa is first-class. You will find WiFi throughout the property, USB ports by each bed, underfloor heating, and sophisticated lighting, ensuring the right settings for each space. In addition, the designers have cleverly disguised TVs as mirrors in some reception rooms, so a 21st-century Smart TV doesn't blight the gorgeous interiors.

There is a large outdoor dining area where you can enjoy preparing fresh pizza in your outdoor pizza oven and assembling gorgeous dishes in your kitchen. After dinner, illuminate your pool area, hit your party playlist, and sip some gorgeous digestif as you watch the pretty lights of the Tuscan hills twinkle in the distance. The comfortable altitude of Villa Ardore guarantees stunning unimpeded views and gentle breezes.

Tuscany is the number one tourist destination in Italy. The quintessential scenery of rolling hills, forests, vineyards, hillside estates, and waving cypresses never fails to woo travelers. There's endless history and art to explore in Florence or Siena, both cities within an hour's drive of your private hideaway at Villa Ardore.

On the trail of Chianti Classico, take a trip on Chiantigiana SR222 from Florence to Siena. You will pass through five famous villages, ie. Greve, Panzano, Radda, Gaiole and Castellina. Your beautiful Tuscan base, Villa Ardore, is just outside Castellina in Chianti.

If you are keen to explore Florence without the hassle of navigating the city traffic, drive for 20 minutes to Poggibonsi and jump on the train. You can enjoy a leisurely visit to Florence, a long lunch, and hop on the train home. It's one of the easier ways to experience this great city.

Villa Ardore is an idyllic property for a family vacation. The space and amenities make this a relaxing and fun place for guests to bond and unwind. In addition to traditional vacations, the Villa provides the perfect space for a memorable Tuscan wedding. Up to 60 guests can mingle and dine at the property, while the main wedding party can stay on site. There's a dedicated professional kitchen for a catering crew to oversee your beautiful wedding dinner. A private studio on the estate is the perfect place for the bridal group to prepare for the onsite celebration.

The team at the Villa can assist in sourcing additional guest accommodations at nearby villas as well as helping with the legalities around your preferred religious or civil ceremony.

Corporate retreats are another welcome facet to life at Villa Ardore. Executives enjoy the luxury and space while they gather for team building or corporate planning getaways. Excellent spaces comfortably accommodate a small workshop and sufficiently powerful WiFi for presentations.

Altogether, Villa Ardore has so much to offer as a luxurious destination. Let us know what you hope to achieve when you visit, and we can guide you.
