Dining at Villa Lena

Innovative farm-to-table dining, hidden in the Tuscan hills.

Our creative menu offers a new approach to Italian culinary heritage and celebrates seasonal flavours and ingredients picked directly from our organic ortos and sourced from local suppliers. Panoramic views, picture-perfect sunsets and the orange-hued villa create the perfect setting for you to enjoy the company of your friends and family, whether you’re staying with us or dropping in just for the evening to celebrate a special occasion.

THE SAN MICHELE RESTAURANT

The San Michele Restaurant at Villa Lena offers farm-to-table menus created with seasonal produce sourced from our organic vegetable gardens and local producers. Half-board booking options offer hassle free dining each night with a set four-course menu, or you can choose to dine a la carte when it suits. The menus offer simplicity and honesty, with dishes designed around sourcing much from the rich grounds of Villa Lena, which will provide the restaurant with seasonal vegetables, aromatics, olive oil, truffles, wine, and honey.

MORE ABOUT THE RESTAURANT

The Two Bars

We think we’re probably the only agriturismo in Tuscany to have two bars!

The San Michele is the perfect spot to explore our exciting wine list made of wines mostly sourced from Tuscany and the surrounding regions, with producers specialising in low intervention wine making. Or make the most of Aperitivo Hour by the pool, basking in the evening sun with a selection of antipasti plates, accompanied by cocktails or wine for a set price.

The Orto

Our organic orto, our fantastic vegetable garden, spreads over 2 hectares of the Villa Lena estate and just keeps on growing. The annual cycle of bountiful produce provides our restaurant with fresh, sun-drenched veggies, underpinning our seasonally-led menus. Our farm is run on organic, biodynamic and closed-loop principles, meaning our crops are organic and we recycle all nutrients and organic matter back into the soil that it grew in.
