Description
Villa Granduca is situated in the romantic heart of Tuscany, only 20 minutes from Siena, only a stone’s throw from Montalcino and Val d’Orcia, in a enchanting world exuding magic and beauty, This luxury Tuscan Villa is a late Renaissance structure, built of red brick, with original oak beams and roof, and having terracotta floors and a beautiful Italianate garden. Villa Granduca today is an magnificent establishment with just 10 rooms, each one unique, where service, attention to detail and exclusivity are the cornerstones its offering..


HISTORY
The Villa, whose construction is attributed to Baldassarre Peruzzi, was built in the first half of the sixteenth century. It was the country residence of the noble Malavolti family from Siena who had the good fortune to number among their ranks nine Captains of the People, in other words the most important figures in Siena's political landscape at that time.
GROUNDS
Close your eyes for a moment and imagine walking on a carpet of soft grass between rows of cypress, maritime pines and olive trees. The air is fresh, the sky a perfect shade of blue, and the sun gently caresses your skin with its warmth. All around you ... a many-coloured multitude of roses ... Welcome to Villa Granduca! A fairytale place where your senses will come alive.
RECONSTRUCTION
Once upon a time there was a dream. Joy, nature and family. There was once a villa. Left to its own devices, marked by the passage of time and neglected, yet still incredibly bewitching. Hidden from sight but not from the heart. Today that dream has become reality; the Villa has recovered its former splendour and allure. Irrepressible, it has witnessed a triumph of history, magic and pure beauty... Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Villa Granduca, your personal Renaissance villa in the heart of the Crete Senesi area!
LOCATION
Villa Granduca, Buonconvento, is in the heart of the Crete Senesi. An astoundingly attractive area of unsurpassable historical interest, Buonconvento - whose name derives from the Latin "bonus conventus" meaning a good-natured, fortunate community - is a member of the prestigious "Most Beautiful Villages in Italy" Association.
Imagine age-old villas, country houses, monasteries and abbeys.
Imagine endless rows of vineyards that seem to chase each other over the hills.
Imagine small groups of olive trees, so close to each other that they seemingly protect and caress each other with their long branches.
Imagine hundreds of cypress trees competing to reach that small cloud floating in the sea of blue above them.
Imagine all that and, after a glass of Brunello, a local farmer's greeting, and the innocent smile of a local child, you'll fall hopelessly in love with this small, humble part of the world
where the sun remains warm and the air fresh and delicate.
ROOMS & SUITES
Villa Granduca offers a total of 10 rooms, all very different from one another. There are four categories: three Classic rooms, one Junior Suite, five Suites and a Superior Suite. Each room enjoys stunning views over the Villa grounds or the wonderful Crete Senesi and comes with precious furnishings, prints, paintings and fabrics. With a wealth of history, yet boasting all modern amenities, the Villa Granduca rooms were designed and built to provide the utmost satisfaction for our guests.
GASTRONOMY
Our "Made in Italy" approach leads us to support local Kilometre 0 products and, where possible, to use "Slow Food" produce which is a byword for exceedingly high quality and certified origin.
THE SORBO ALLEGRO [THE MERRY ROWAN] RESTAURANT
This hundred-year old tree that welcomes guests to the Villa garden gave its name to our restaurant. So why do we use the word Merry? Because dining in company is a crucial moment of the day, one which must be lived in a superbly maintained, elegant atmosphere exuding a sense of pleasure; where tradition meets imagination to produce results which are excellent and never dull. The same care and attention is paid to breakfast, taken in the conservatory, where the warm Tuscan sun will be the first to greet you in the morning.
THE VILLA ARMENA LIVING ROOM
As in any self-respecting house Villa Granduca has its own living room. A special room where you can relax after a long day exploring Tuscany, challenging yourself on the greens at one of the affiliated golf-clubs or just lounging in the sun by the pool. In fact Villa Granduca is not a hotel, but a Tuscan Villa belonging to the Hosts and this room perfectly encapsulates their philosophy. Here you will find a selection of fine "vini da meditazione" in other words, wines to be enjoyed on their own, unaccompanied by food, a wide selection of different types of grappa and the best liquors from all over the world. Enjoy a drink whilst lounging in an armchair, gazing over the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Guaranteed to stir the heart.
THE WINE CELLAR
Ours has been and continues to be a painstaking pursuit of excellence in the world of Italian wine. We eschew typical mass-produced classics and instead focus on lesser-known, smaller vineyards, where you will find passion and professionalism and where the products are genuine. Our wine cellar will give you an overview of Italy's regions, from Valle d'Aosta to Calabria, taking in the islands too. In search of age-old genuineness that speaks of history and tradition. Italy: truly wonderful!
TUSCANY
The Siena landscape is made of colour: so many different shades. Taste: unique products, a gift from a bountiful mother earth. Perfumes: strong, centuries-old, captivating. A land of poets, painters and sculptors encompassing an extraordinary historical, artistic, cultural and environmental heritage. Tradition, history and a food and drink cornucopia within a truly unique landscape and a multi-faceted, protected natural environment. Here man and nature still live in harmony and mutual respect. Here time has stood still for the last couple of centuries.
AROUND THE VILLA
Villa Granduca is fortunate to be in the beating heart of the province of Siena, in a part of Tuscany known and loved all over the world. The most romantic Tuscany, the Tuscany of gentle hills, churches, dazzling landscapes, medieval monasteries and priceless works of art. A veritable triumph of beauty.
We are proud of our district and at the same time glad to share it with our guests, because certain emotions are impossible to explain. They can only be lived. And so we have prepared this little guide which we hope will be of assistance to readers, helping them to get their bearings in this humble yet marvellous corner of Italy, spending a fantastic day in the company of the hot Tuscan sun. When the sun goes down, you will return to Villa Granduca and revel in the memory of the day coming to a close, sipping a glass of Brunello together with your loved ones.
