Hotels in Tuscany

In Montalcino, relax by the pool at Castello Banfi’s 14-room hotel in a 19th-century building restored to gorgeous effect by American Cristina Mariani-May, a co-CEO of the family winery. Enjoy the view from this hilltop hamlet nestled in Tuscany's winery-filled Brunello region.
The hotel is located in an 800-year-old village. Book all 22 bedrooms of the exquisite manor house or stay in one of the smaller villas around its central piazza.
Down a narrow, winding road on the promontory’s southeastern tip stands the cliffside Il Pellicano Hotel, a sheltered hideaway that attracts a high-flying clientele (yes, that’s Bono by the pool).
A 14th-century palazzo, has the most magnificent views of the countryside.
Relax in one of Tuscany's thermal baths at this Bagno Vignori spa complete with an updated image, sleek rooms, and amenities.

Originally founded by Leonardo Ferragamo in 1986 as “Windows on Tuscany”, now with over 25 years experience Windows on Italy continues to specialise in the management of prestigious apartments and luxury villas for rent in Italy.
Set on a peninsula fronting Lake Bilancino, this villa occupies 44 private wooded acres in the Mugello hills. Abandoned by its noble family in 1963, Villa Le Maschere fell into disrepair, until a painstaking five-year restoration revived much of its late-Renaissance glory.
