Villa Bordoni (Chianti)

Villa Bordoni (Chianti)

This peaceful villa high on a hill, in the heart of Chianti, is a luxurious romantic home-away-from-home while you explore the castle and villa-filled hills of Tuscany’s most romanticized region. A half-hour drive from Florence, and a bit more from Siena, it is the perfect non-city base. Beautiful gardens offer secluded nooks, the restaurant is cozy and serves outstanding food; and the nine rooms—each named after the castle it faces—have classic décor and modern everything. The doors are so soundproof you need a stethoscope to hear what passes outside. The breakfast, with excellent pastries and homemade jams, is so ample you can skip lunch and see more of this idyllic countryside. The service is not only friendly but also excellent.
