Why Stay At UNA Palazzo Mannaioni
A 47-room Tuscan estate in the medieval town of Montaione, just an hour's drive southwest of Florence.
Stay like Tuscan nobility at this 16th-century palazzo, a 47-room hideaway surrounded by vineyards and olive groves on the edge of a quiet village. Open the heavy wood doors, look up, and you'll be standing below beamed ceilings; beneath your feet, terra-cotta floors lead to a vaulted wine cellar in the rustic stone basement. Throughout, there are antique furnishings (including gilded, lobbyside mirrors), and among the manicured grounds, an outdoor pool and hot tub. The small town of Montaione offers classic countryside experiences, but there are also major draws within an hour's drive, including the wineries of Chianti and Florence's Renaissance masterpieces.
Get a flaky pastry at the hotel to start your day, or end it in the dining room with a Tuscan specialty such as bistecca alla Fiorentina.
Castelfalfi Golf and Country Club, one of Tuscany's premier courses, is just 15 minutes away; the concierge can reserve a tee time.
Arrive at Florence A. Vespucci Airport (FLR) which is approximately 33 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 55 minutes of travel time.Via Marconi, 2, Montaione, Tuscany, Italy
