Villa Bordoni, Chianti

Villa Bordoni, Chianti

For centuries the world has been in love with the Chianti Hills. Close to Florence and not far from Siena is the region’s most famous town, Greve. High in its silent pine and cypress-covered hills, is a thoughtfully restored fifteenth-century villa. It has nine rooms, each named after the distant castle it faces. It has classic furnishings, ultra-modern baths, and charming common spaces. The lush gardens—one part formal Italian, the rest olive-filled rustic hillside—has many private corners on various levels, where you can dream away the hours. There is a hidden, tranquil pool, and a rare, romantic restaurant with excellent food, a wonderful wine cellar and perfect service. Not only do they offer classes in Tuscan cooking, but they even take you on truffle hunts (autumn). Then the chef prepares the truffles for you. Heaven.
