Our master pizzaiolo will demonstrate the artistry of Italian pizza with an evening of hands-on pizza making.

Your host, Francesco will welcome you in Tuscan style with an aperitivo as you settle in and get acquainted with the property. Tour the grounds and explore the curated wine cellar, antique Parisian bar, grand salon and fireplace, culinary gardens, spacious pool deck and party pavilion, and the villa‘s private Roman spa.

Master Pizzaiolo

A favourite experience of guests at the Villa is a lively evening of pizza making with our master pizzaiolo Gianluca. Our wood-fired oven cooks a perfectly crispy crust while you relax with new friends on the loggia enjoying our Villa Ardore house Chianti & Bianco wines.

Chef Roberto

Chef Roberto Miceli will prepare an innovative menu that celebrates the heritage of the region’s cuisine coupled with sommelier-procured wine pairings from our cellar.

A private dining experience at Villa Ardore makes our guests feel like they truly are relaxing in their own homes.

The creativity of our chef never ceases to delight, showcasing farm-to-table ingredients and seasonal expressions of life in Tuscany.

Poggio Amorelli

Be immersed in the flavors and scents of Tuscany’s culinary heritage. Enjoy wine selections paired with regionally produced sheep’s milk cheeses and homemade jams, handmade pasta with freshly grated truffles, or organic vegetables harvested from the winery’s garden as well as homemade desserts.

Begin or end with a guided tour of the private cellar and learn about the wine-making processes of fermentation and barrel aging. Soak in the countryside and inspiring vineyard views.

The Spa At

Our Roman spa features a sunken 10-person whirlpool. Before or after a massage on a private stone terrace, enjoy a steam, take comfort in our sensory shower, or have a sweat in our dry sauna.

Itinerary & Pricing

Gentlemen’s Week during Pride Month, June 2024, boasts an itinerary to please all tastes, with urban adventures, fine dining, beautiful music and ultimate relaxation.

After all, there’s no such thing as being “extra” in June.

Celebrate who you are with pride in one of the most passionate cities in the world – Florence.

The Festa di San Giovanni parade is a time machine to the medieval era. Hundreds of Florentines don medieval costumes and parade through the ancient city. Later, dine with rooftop views of the fireworks display over the Arno.

In celebration of Gentlemen’s Week, it is our honor to make a donation/contribution to SAGE – an advocacy group focused on advocating for LGBTQ+ elders in our community. Your support will aid their mission to allow this most vulnerable population to age with dignity.
