Historic Residence

Would you like to realise the dream of celebrating the most important day of your life in a villa drawn by Leonardo da Vinci? Villa di Leonardo is the perfect location to realise your dream. This Villa is situated in a place called Sodo, between 2 valleys i.e. val d’ Orcia and Val di Chiana. Today, it is the only known 16th century Tuscan Villa that faithfully and perfectly corresponds to the 2 architectural drafts drawn by the genius born in Vinci. It is located as an an authentic secret Treasure at the centre of the famous Map that Leonardo Da Vinci drew in 1502, when he stayed in this area at the service of Cesare Borgia. It is likely that this property was the hunting lodge of Magnifico Agostino Chigi, the richest banker from Siena of the Italian Renaissance. This banker commissioned Baldassarre Peruzzi to build the urban version of Villa di Leonardo in Rome, called Villa Farnesina which contains frescoes by Raffaello. Villa di Leonardo was then sold to the Contucci of Montepulciano family that owned it for centuries. Today, it has been restored and opened to the public by a philosopher/entrepreneur who is passionate about Leonardo da Vinci.

This historical 16th century residence is immersed in the peace and tranquillity of the Tuscan hills close the enchanting historical little towns of Pienza and Montepulciano. The architectural structure harmonically combines the internal cloister with a panoramic terrace on the Val di Chiana and a big porch with 5 arches.

The external part of the estate is enriched by marble statues and a 5,000 square metres park of olive and pine trees, which has a well and marble tables. Villa di Leonardo is the ideal place to organize any type of buffet or seated dinner. There is also a swimming pool which is the perfect area to offer your guests a welcome cocktail. The internal hall of the villa, with a central fireplace, is bigger than 120 square metres and can host up to 50 seated guests, while the big porch is about 130 square metres and can host events for up to 100 guests, so it is possible to organize an event also in case of not good weather conditions.
