Hotel Villa Lecchi is in the Chianti between Siena and Florence in Tuscany
Villa Lecchi is a wonderful 4-star hotel located in the province of Siena, which was born from the restoration of a nineteenth-century residence that belonged to the Venturi Ginori family during that period.
During your stay, you will have the opportunity to breathe a unique and unforgettable atmosphere, the fruitful encounter between the location's rich history and the utmost attention to detail of the current property.
Surrounded by two hectares of parkland and overlooking Via Cassia, one of the oldest roads in the Italian territory, Villa Lecchi is the perfect destination for those seeking the tranquility and beauty of the Tuscan countryside, while having the main tourist destinations in the region within convenient reach.History of the villa
The rooms are in three separate buildings :
The first document where "La Corte de Liche" appears dates from 994. In particular, it is mentioned in the so-called "morgengabe", that is to say, the dowry asset that Tegrimo-Teuzo, son of Ava di Ildebrando, presented to Sindrada.
In 1086, Ildebrando's wife Ava, a woman of Lombardian origin, founded the Monastery of the Island, which is known today as Abbadia a Isola.
The genealogy tree, drawn up as an inverted tree in a non-notarised hence undated form (1150-1160), was spread by the monks of San Salvatore dell’Abbadia (a Isola) to ascertain the asset solidity conferred by the monastery founders and their heirs.
In fact, La Corte de Lecchi is the subject of donations, changing its name overtime from "LICHE" to "Castellum de Leke" in 1147.
During the twelfth century, the assets of S. Salvatore dell’Isola were indeed granted as a fief to the so-called "filii mazzi e filli rustici" heirs of Ava.
In 1399, La Corte di Lecchi is donated again to a Florentine cleric, who rejected the same in 1401 in favour of the Monastero S. Salvatore dell’Isola. As the Monastero S. Salvatore dell’Isola disappears, the assets of Santa Maria a Lecchi pass to the Monaci Cassinesi di Siena.
The hotel features a total of 37 rooms and suites, distributed in the Main Villa and two adjacent structures..
The Main villa is a three-storey building with 20 rooms and suites, divided into standard, superior, junior suites and executive suites.
