|View from Vitigliano Relais and Spa over the swimming pool to the Chianti hills of Tuscany|
The location is phenomenal, even in a part of Tuscany where panoramic views are the norm. Vitigliano was very likely a Roman settlement and is documented from as early as 1085 in the archives of the nearby Abbey of San Leolino. The oldest building still in existence today is a thousand years old. The location was chosen by its founders for the panoramic vistas in every direction, which were, at that time, of principally military value. After the definitive conquest of Chianti by the Florentines, farm buildings grew up around the watch tower and the resulting borgo became the property of the Verrazzano family, who, like us, surely admired the views for their beauty much more than for their soldierly significance!
