Historic Residence

Villa le Calvane is a luxurious boutique hotel situated on the hills of Montagnana Val di Pesa, in the heart of Tuscany, 20 kilometers from the city center of Florence and close to the legendary Castle of Montegufoni.

The oldest historical records of the villa date back to 1135, when the Florentines destroyed the Castle of Montegufoni and took possession of the surrounding properties including Le Calvane estate. In 1305 Leo Acciaioli built the Church of Santa Maria Nuova in Montegufoni and the Oratory of Madonna della Neve , where the hotel is now located. Traces of these buildings are present till the 18th century, as they have been demolished.

The name Le Calvane dates back to 1427, when Calvano di Luca Calvanesi became owner of the estate and committed himself to produce wine and olive oil. The property belonged to the Calvanesi family until 1569.

In 2011 Le Calvane was purchased by a small group of international entrepreneurs and local aficionados of the historical value of Le Calvane. They also knew the specific features in terms of location and vinification methods and recognised their potentialities.

In Villa Le Calvane you can celebrate the happiest moments of your life choosing from enchanting and excellent facilities: from the restaurant to the cellar of the Resort, from the intimate but very spacious Villa Tornabuoni to the terrace and the big hall in the barn.
