The discount:

We advertise this offer at up to 23% off. We calculate this discount percentage based on the rates we offer compared to a price check of other online travel providers offering the same product and travel date. An example of our maximum discount is:

On 06/01/2019, leaving from London Gatwick, two people may book a three-night stay in a Superior room (inclusions as noted above) and will pay £265 per person, per stay, compared to a third party online rate of £344 per person, per stay. Based on this calculation, by booking with Secret Escapes, you will save 23%.

The discounts, price and availability stated above were checked on 03/12/2018.

Due to fluctuations in other travel providers’ prices, the discount advertised will not always be the same discount on the “from” price.

The lead price shown is subject to availability, which will naturally decrease during the course of a sale as the relevant dates are booked.

The offer is 100% non-refundable and date changes are not possible once the booking has been made.

Your contract is with Secret Escapes with ATOL number 11257.

Retreat to a wine-producing, UNESCO-listed Medici villa in the Tuscan hills east of Florence - includes a dining discount, one spa entry, flights, car hire and optional wine tasting

With noble status as one of the UNESCO-listed Tuscan villas owned by Italy's powerful and culturally enlightened Medici family, the 'Villa of a Hundred Chimneys' once hosted such intelligentsia as Leonardo da Vinci and Galileo Galilei - the latter brought in to help young Cosimo Medici with his maths.

Built at the start of the 17th century and showing off a unique architectural style for the time, Tenuta di Artimino nowadays comprises Hotel Paggeria Medicea, apartments in the village of Artimino itself, Erato Wellness Luxury Spa, and the restaurant Biagio Pignatta - named after Ferdinando I de' Medici's first butler. Sitting less than an hour east of dreamy Florence, it flaunts a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and rave reviews.

For an even more memorable and authentic Tuscan experience, you can opt to add a wine tasting to your stay, where you'll get to sit back, sip and savour the local and regional flavours.

Good to know

Please note that for the car hire, a local tax of £1 per day is to be paid locally. This is mandatory and is payable directly to the car provider.

Accommodation

Recently renovated and maintaining original fireplaces, stone sinks, wooden beams and terracotta floors from the original building, the hotel offers elegant rural rooms in a soft-grey palette with touches of muted pink. On the ground or first floor, the intimate Superior rooms measure 18 square metres and hold a double bed or two singles. Some come with a Jacuzzi in the en-suite.

Amenities:

- Flatscreen TV
- Air conditioning
- Wi-Fi

Dining

Relying on seasonal produce from its 5,000-square-metre private garden, Biagio Pignatta restaurant serves a mouth-watering selection of Tuscan classics with the usual Italian born-and-bred flair. In warmer months, the outdoor area is a boon for barbecues. Be sure to try the two wines produced on home turf - the Carmignano, an old wine favoured by the Medici family, and the well-known Chianti. Both are classified as DOCG - the highest mark an Italian wine can achieve.

Spa

Coupled with the heartstopping views of Tuscany from your hilltop location, Erato Wellness Luxury Spa helps you relax in one of the most visually romantic places on earth. Treat yourself to face and body treatments, pick from a selection of special spa packages, and lose an afternoon in the wet area, Jacuzzi, emotional showers with colour therapy, and relaxation area. Robes, towels and slippers are provided.

Location

The hilltop medieval village of Artimino sits 45 minutes east of Florence, making for easy day trips to this exquisite cultural epicentre. Time can be spent rambling the Tuscan hills, beetling between iconic medieval villages in a hire car, or staying in your treasured spot and signing up for a cookery class or wine, honey and olive oil tastings. Guided tours of the pivotal arty cities of Florence, Siena and Lucca can also be organised by the hotel. Pisa International Airport is around a 50-minute drive away.
