Enjoy the Academy Awards with Sir Elton John and Friends

Stay in the Heart of Tuscany at a 16th Century Estate

Enjoy a five-night stay at a restored 16th century Tuscan farmhouse estate and a special private chef-prepared dinner with wines from local vintners. The estate, less than an hour’s drive from Florence and a half-hour from Siena, occupies a hillside in the Chianti Classico region of Tuscany. This true Tuscan experience includes an authentic wood-burning pizza oven, farm fresh eggs, organic garden and extra virgin olive oil from the estate olive grove. The farmhouse, renovated by Cuvée, also features an infinity pool suspended at the edge of a panoramic view of the vineyards.
