About the property.
Since 1971 the estate has been the property of the Folonari family, a renowned name in the Italian wine panorama and one of Tuscany’s most respected and successful wine making families.

After a first complete restoration in 1992, where all of the original charm and architectural features were strictly maintained, the villa’s interiors have recently been meticulously renovated to the highest standards. Each living space has been elegantly appointed, combining traditional and contemporary elements. All of the artwork has been selected from the owner’s private collection, including some ancient masterpieces and some contemporary art pieces.

The villa is surrounded by 90 hectares (220 Acres) of vineyards, 15 hectares (37 acres) of olive groves and overlooks an extensive forest of century-old maritime pines. The garden is on different levels, and boasts a beautiful terracotta terrace overlooking the vineyards, a shaded area perfect for relaxing during the hot summer days, a private heated pool with beautiful views, an olive grove and a large lawn, ideal for outdoor summer banquets. The whole property extends over a total of 385 hectares (950 acres) of land.

The staff is caring and professional, looking after guests’ every need. The villa’s Hospitality Manager has daily contact with guests and is fully committed to help organize the holiday of a lifetime. As an introduction to the Family’s winemaking activity, all guests are offered a free wine tasting and visit of the main aging cellar on the Nozzole estate.

Spreading over a surface of more than 18,000 square feet, the villa offers its guests a unique blend of indoor and outdoor living, providing the perfect setting for either a family reunion, a group of friends travelling together, or an anniversary party… With its 9 wonderfully decorated bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning, the villa offers the ultimate accommodation for your dream luxury holiday in Tuscany!
