From Piedmont to Sicily, these new small hotels in Italy are delivering on both authenticity and intimacy.

Hotel Monteverdi, Castiglioncello del Trinoro, Tuscany

2 of 15

Not everyone would have the guts or vision to convert part of a crumbling, 12th-century village at the end of a bumpy dirt road into a contemporary Tuscan retreat. But when American lawyer Michael Cioffi discovered Castiglioncello del Trinoro (population 25), just south of Montepulciano, that’s exactly what he decided to do. Celebrated Roman interior designer Ilaria Miani brought her rustic-meets-modern aesthetic—reclaimed-wood-beamed ceilings; C&C Milano linens; Carrara-marble bathrooms—to the 10-room hotel and three rental villas. Also in the hamlet: a standout farm-to-table restaurant (order the lavender risotto) and small gallery showing works by artists-in-residence. monteverdituscany.com. $$$
