Prestigious historical venue for your luxury vacation and wedding in Tuscany

Villa Ivana is a 17th century frescoed Italian Villa located at the foot of the Etruscan town of Cortona, not far from “Villa Bramasole” where the movie “Under the Tuscan Sun” was filmed. Villa Ivana is an historic residence dating back to 1600, it has become, thanks to recent restoration, a prestigious Italian villa in which modern accessories blend with original recycled materials and local architectural features conferring warmth and typical Tuscan atmosphere to the rooms.

Antique furniture, precious tapestries, elegant windows and doors, original chandeliers and accessories, painted ceilings and splendid terracotta-tiled floors dress the more than 1000 Square Meters of the villa.

The ground floor is dominated by an imposing living room with decorated vaulted ceilings and frescoed walls, with an antique billiards table. On the upper floors are the 9 intimate, panoramic bedrooms  characterized by romantic four-poster beds and served by splendid cosy bathrooms in inlaid marble. Thanks to its large indoor and outdoor spaces, Villa Ivana is a perfect location for your Tuscan vacation as well as for the organization of cultural events, reunion of groups and families and for destination weddings (being equipped with a private chapel) and other ceremonies, to spend in a prestigious and enchanting setting.

The completely fenced-in park that surrounds Villa Ivana covers a flat area of about 7000 Square Meters, most of which is planted with grass with a large variety of centuries-old plants and trees, pots of lemon trees around the villa and a lush row of oleander bushes that border the paved drive leading to the main entrance. The large gazebo surmounted by stone columns, located a few steps from the big swimming pool and from the many entrances to the villa, is furnished with marble tables and chairs for relaxing and dining al fresco, with the complicity of the silent garden embellished by the gentle setting of the Tuscan hills. At the entrance to the property, just after the main gate and the tree-lined access drive, is a large parking area.


Villa Ivana is an ideal Italian venue for events and holidays in Tuscany with the personal touch. The Vanni family knows how to take care of you and your event with an eye for detail, granting their full attention and a passion so as to make your stay ever more special.

It was because of those who are really fond of the location and at the request of many who wanted to have their wedding at Villa Ivana that this most beautiful family adventure began.

The Villa’s restoration and conservation overseen by architects and interior designers  lasted all of 2 years, embracing the Villa in its entirety, both with its sumptuous inside frescoes and well as its surrounding exteriors. Particular attention was also given to the great Italianate garden, to its tree-lined entrance and to the lovely Chapel.

We were total of 15 people of all ages and everyone just loved it.
The villa is very clean and fit well with the surronding. the pool is big and fun and the area around the villa was great for a walk or a jog.
Definitely recommend this place!

Villa Ivana was absolutely amazing! Alessandra and Federico were so kind, helpful, and welcoming! They handled everything for us with such ease that we were able to have the best time; in the months leading up to the wedding, this included coordinating vendors, keeping us in the loop, researching potential ideas, and answering our questions. When people at home asked about our planning, they expected us to say it was stressful, yet it was easy thanks to Villa Ivanas help!

When we actually arrived for our wedding weekend, we were astounded. The villa is beautiful! The layout allows you to have everything you need-picturesque ceremony under trees, intimate table arrangements, and a great dance floor. At the golden hour of sunset, you could not ask for better pictures than at the villa! Throughout the ceremony and reception, Alessandra and Federico once again made everything easy for us. By coordinating with the vendors, we were able to spend our time with the guests having an amazing time!

Because the venue is so spectacular, we just had to keep the party going with a pool party! It was once again made possible by the expansive villa and the help of Alessandra and Federico.

Our friends and families joke that no one else will be able to find a suitable venue now because ours was just too perfect! We could not rave enough about this place and its’ owners!

The villa is impeccably maintained and the experience is like none other. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the wine is like no other. The owners are incredibly friendly and generous ands even provided vegetables from their farm for dinner one evening. The villa’s location is a huge plus if you want to explore other parts of Italy. It’s within a few hours drive to most major metropolitan areas. It truly shines being located centrally to a number of amazing small Italian towns. If you want to experience the Italian countryside with a large group of friends and family I wouldn’t recommend staying anywhere else. We’ve stayed here twice and are eagerly looking forward to our next trip. If you book at Villa Ivana I promise you wont be disappointed.
