Festive Greetings

24th December 2009


Where better to celebrate Christmas than in the heart of Chianti and only a stones throw from Florence. The villa will be hosting magical Christmas events as well as lots of champagne to bring in the New Year. Your are invited to join us during the course of the day on Christmas eve and afternoon tea will be served from 3pm. Following you may wish to enjoy a massage in our spa, relax by log fires or enjoy the privacy of your private suite. Cocktails will be served at 8:00pm followed by a traditional Christmas eve dinner accompanied by fine wines. After dinner you will be invited to enjoy "carols by candlelight" during midnight mass at the beautiful church in Macchiavellis home village, San Casciano only a few minutes away. After the service you will be escorted back to the villa where you may care to enjoy a hot glass of Mulled wine or retire to your suite.

As Christmas day dawns and the world celebrates the birth of Christ you are invited to enjoy breakfast after which all of our guests will congregate around the magnificent Mangiacane Christmas Tree where Santa will be handing gifts to all.

Enjoy time with your family and newly found friends before a traditional Christmas lunch is served at around 2pm in the afternoon and thereafter we will enjoy the remainder of Christmas day with a cold buffet being served throughout the course of the evening.

On St. Stephens day you may care to enjoy a trip to Florence, walks in the beautiful chilly Tuscan countryside, hot air ballooning, wine tasting, cooking lessons or simply relax and enjoy one of our signature treatments in the spa. Our concierge will happily make reservations for you in advance to dine in San Casciano or perhaps Florence or you may alternately choose to enjoy our Tuscan cuisine at the villa, where the team will be on hand to pamper you throughout your stay.
