Deep in the silence, in a gentle embrace of hills, rows of vines and lush olive groves, Vignale Relais & Spa is an old 18th century farmhouse located a few steps from the old town centre of Radda, Chianti. Since its origins, its history intertwines with that of the prince of wines: the Estate, in fact, is located in the heart of the Chianti Classico production area. And it was within its walls in 1924 that the deed of incorporation of the "Gallo Nero" was signed, the historic Consortium created to defend this sublime and carmine Tuscan nectar that has become one of the symbols of excellence made in Italy. Thanks to its privileged position, the Relais is the ideal starting point to explore the medieval villages and castles of Chianti, where you can taste the best Tuscan wines in the typical farms of the area and visit the many cities of art that animate this rich and generous land: Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, Arezzo, Cortona and many others.
Once you cross the threshold of this magnificent residence you are immediately transported into a dreamlike dimension, where even the smallest detail carries its guests into an atmosphere full of peace, tranquillity and noble history. Starting from the lush garden inhabited by plants and fragrant flowers, in which a spectacular swimming pool with umbrellas, deckchairs and pool bar stands out majestically, offering a unique view of the hills and vineyards. It is a multisensory journey offered by this charming Relais, which combines the refinement of a charming boutique hotel with the warm welcome of a period residence. A magic that flows through the elegance of its lounges adorned with ancient fireplaces, the elegance of the charming internal library, the enchanting views that peep out here and there and the immeasurable charm of its rooms. Which are not just spaces in which to sleep, but real intimate places where you can indulge in the many nuances of this dream land. The Relais, renovated preserving its original design, offers guests 41 rooms, including 6 suites with loggia or terrace, all furnished with period furniture and equipped with every modern comfort.
