Hospitality at the Tenuta di Artimino
Enjoy a stay at the Tenuta di Artimino
If you want to stay a few days at the Tenuta di Artimino, you can choose to sleep in a typical apartment in the medieval village of Artimino or in one of the 37 rooms in the Paggeria Medicea, a 4-star hotel where the rooms recall the colors of the wines. In the morning, a rich breakfast awaits you, with the scent of freshly made cakes, fresh fruit, cold cuts and cheeses. During the summer two swimming pools are available to our guests, one in the village and one near the hotel. Tenuta di Artimino Wellness & Spa center, in the old cellar rooms, is the perfect place to indulge in a relaxing pampering: the area of wine therapy is a magical place with a spa where you can bathe in wine and enjoy many treatments. Enjoy the peace and beauty of your holiday in Tuscany in a charming place where you can find genuine flavors and rhythms.
Villa Medicea La Ferdinanda
Visiting Villa Medicea La Ferdinanda is a unique experience. The Villa was built in 1596, the year that is also found on the labels of our best wines to confirm the link with history. It was Ferdinand I de’ Medici who decided to build a place of arts and relaxation, in the center of the Barco Reale, an ancient hunting reserve of the Medici family. The Villa has been a Unesco world heritage site since 2013 and is also known as Villa dei Cento Camini-Villa of the 100 chimneys: it has a unique architecture, with many and beautiful chimneys that stand on the roof and sandstone fireplaces in every room. You can participate in a tasting in the Villa, at the fireplaces with a rotisserie designed by Leonardo da Vinci or in the tasting room in the wine cellar. Or choose the Tenuta di Artimino for a wine-themed wedding, to be hosted in the Villa or in its garden, or even in the vineyards.
Biagio Pignatta restaurant: great food and wine
The ideal place to try the wines of Tenuta di Artimino is our Biagio Pignatta restaurant. The restaurant has traditional dishes reinterpreted in a Tuscan spirit, with local ingredients and seasonal fruit and vegetables. Some dishes are a modern reinterpretation of some recipes of the Medici cuisine, such as duck with orange, one of the signature dishes that can always be found on the menu. The restaurant also has a panoramic gazebo, a beautiful garden perfect for a lunch or dinner in good weather, and a tasting room. The restaurant is located in the historic house of Sir Biagio Pignatta, its namesake, butler and trusted assistant of Ferdinand I de ‘Medici.
The best ingredients
Ours can be called a restaurant with a vegetable garden, or rather a resort with a vegetable garden. A few years ago, in fact, it was decided to dedicate a space on the estate to the cultivation of fruit and vegetables, to guarantee our guests the best ingredients, always in season. In our 5000 square meters of vegetable garden there are cabbage, eggplants, carrots, salad, fruit trees and much more. Nature has no rules nor can it be predicted with precision: it is often nature that dictates the dishes on our menu, based on the generosity of the season and what the farmers have available. The vegetable garden can be visited and activities for children and groups can be organized.
