Dimora Ghirlandaio

Dimora Ghirlandaio, once the country retreat of the famous Renaissance painting family of Domenico and Ridolfo Ghirlandaio, having undergone a seven year long restoration, has recently opened its gates to a rather exclusive clientele. The villa is actually a hamlet containing the main villa plus 4 well appointed, smartly restored outbuildings, each with its own particular history.

If you are looking for the crème de la crème of villas, look no further; Dimora Ghirlandaio has it all. Located just 6 KM from downtown Florence yet set against olive groves, a lake and vineyards, Dimora Ghirlandaio offers a panoramic yet discreet setting in which to celebrate your wedding. The villa boasts 2 panoramic pools, the biggest of which can be heated, a luxurious spa where you can choose from a range of treatments, a restaurant that serves seasonal Tuscan delicacies, many of which are plucked from the organic garden that grows just at the entrance to the restaurant. A charming chapel frescoed by Ridolfo Ghirlandaio adjoins the main villa and is the hidden jewel of this magnificent property.

Imagine saying your I-do’s in this intimate chapel, then adjourning to the panoramic terrace with views of the Cathedral of Florence for cocktails and light music. As the sun sets you’ll be shown to the Dimora’s panoramic gardens that overlook the olive groves where an exquisite 4 course meal awaits you. Finish the night with a decadent bar and dancing inside the restored olive mill. You really can’t get more Tuscan than this.

The Dimora Ghirlandaio is perfect for small to mid-size weddings and events because it can accommodate up to 44 people with 18 double bedrooms and 2 single room on the estate. All of the rooms have been furnished to the same high luxury standards, so every guest feels special and cared for. Furthermore, should you wish to house a few more guests, it operates with its sister estate, Tenuta di Colle Ramole, where an additional 6 guests can be accommodated in the same grand style, giving you a total capacity of 50 guests. Downtown historic Florence is just a short taxi ride away, thus practical for any guests wishing to stay in the city. This villa is a great choice for those wishing to have an exclusive use property that offers a 5 star experience without the privacy concerns that comes with being placed in a hotel. The on site manager is a gentlemen with a wealth of experience in the travel and event industry and can customize your stay at the Dimora with charming activities that compliment your wedding day, such as wine tastings, horse back riding and cooking classes.
