Tuscany’s Best Hotels

Intimate Rural Retreat: Villa Bordoni

Overview

A Renaissance-era estate overlooking Chianti’s rolling vineyards and terraced olive groves, two miles from the market town of Greve.

Highlights

Whimsical details (lampshades fashioned from iron baskets, straw-brush curtain tassels), which add rustic flair to the 12 chic rooms.

Rooms to Book

The new Limonaia suite, on the first floor, has a private 215-square-foot veranda.

Old-World Hideaway: Relais & Châteaux Il Falconiere

Overview

Exquisitely restored 17th-century stone villa on a 25-acre vineyard just outside Arezzo.

Highlights

Excellent amenities, including wine tastings, cooking classes, and—coming in October—treatments at the 2,500-square-foot spa.

Rooms to Book

For the best value, check into a Classic room in the main villa, with views of the horse-chestnut-tree–covered hillside.

Country Castle: Il Borgo, Castello Banfi

Overview

A hilltop hamlet dating from the 1800’s alongside a medieval castle in Tuscany’s winery-filled Brunello region.

Highlights

Weekend culinary classes taught by chef Heinz Beck, from Rome’s Michelin three-starred La Pergola restaurant.

Rooms to Book

Designed by Federico Forquet, the Double and Classic rooms top our list—they’re a generous 432 and 540 square feet, respectively.

Historic Escape: Villa La Principessa

Overview

Only a five-minute drive from lively Lucca, the 13th- century building was once the private residence of a Luccan nobleman.

Highlights

With hunting prints on the walls, striped fabrics, and tartan carpets, the property is more English country house than hotel.

Rooms to Book

The refurbished second-floor suites have antique furnishings and vintage parquet floors (room No. 126 has a coffered wood ceiling).

Coastal Haven: Villa Le Luci

Great Value

Overview

A turreted villa with Art Nouveau touches and views of the Tyrrhenian Sea, in the town of Castagneto Carducci, in Alta Maremma.

Highlights

A pitch-perfect mix of antique furnishings and neo-Baroque accents such as beaded lamps enlivens the seven fashionable rooms.

Rooms to Book

Second-floor bedrooms are slightly larger and overlook forested hills and vineyards.
