In the famous small town of Vinci, on the hill overlooking the medieval village from which you can enjoy a unique view, Monna Caterina Wine Resort is a place of culture, relaxation, and of course a delight for the eyes and the palate.
The old farmhouse that in the mid-15th century was Caterina’s home, Leonardo da Vinci’s mother, is located on the street that still bears her name and leads to the old church of San Pantaleo, immersed, now as in the past, in a countryside full of vineyards and olive groves that have always been the testimony of man’s work on these lands.
These are the same landscapes on which the genius of Leonardo was glad to look to nurture on his concept of beauty.
The Monna Caterina Wine Resort offers rooms of great charm, furnished with a constant interaction between Design and Country style, respecting and enhancing the uniqueness of the ancient rural building but making it modern with numerous additions of the most contemporary furnishing accessories, creating a dialogue among new Leonardo-themed contemporary works of art, floating beds, coloured and transparent elements.
The project to restore the old stables, reflects the desire to link the great farmyard to the interiors, through the large windows. The wines served are all produced on site, in the Cantina Monna Caterina, the pride of the resort.
Monna Caterina Wine Resort gives to guests a unique experience of contact with the countryside, walks in the vineyard, visits to cultural places, in a uncommon atmosphere that mixes the ancient and the contemporary. An experience absolutely to enjoy.
