Laqua Vineyard Resort in Tuscany is the fourth Italian venture by the Cannavacciuolo Group, and opened in summer 2022. The resort’s restaurant, led by head chef Marco Suriano, gained a Michelin star rating within only five months of welcoming customers. Factor in the requisite wine-tastings, the setting in the sprawling Tuscan landscape, and elegant interiors by Turin-based design studio Lamatilde, and Laqua Vineyard is delivering enviable luxury on many levels. 

Laqua Vineyard: a Tuscan hideaway

The resort’s remote setting makes for a romantic location, and with just six suites, this is a compact, tranquil Tuscan vineyard getaway. 

The suites, each with a name drawn from Greek mythology (Cupid, Aphrodite, Narcissus, Eurydice, Dionysus, and Penelope), feature Lamatilde’s interiors, with a focus on a feeling of ‘home’.

Above all, though, the resort is an ode to the love story between food and wine, expressed in part through the restaurant interiors. The team at Lamatilde designed this space with a nod to the location’s history as the site of a theatre. Curtains punctuate the interior and create ‘stages’ within its different areas. The open kitchen sits at one end of the restaurant space, giving it a dedicated focus, and a wine-tasting table allows large groups to gather for tasting experiences. 

As well as this Tuscan idyll, the Cannavacciuolo Group – the venture of chef Antonino  Cannavacciuolo – has three further properties in the Campania and Piedmont regions of Italy, with locations beside the sea, a lake and in the country, each proposing a different type of holiday.
