Perhaps the most romantic of all in Tuscany even the name of it—Castiglioncello del Trinoro—sounds like a dream. Imagine an ancient stone hamlet (current population 11) on a two-thousand-foot hilltop, overlooking the least-changed valley in Tuscany with a volcano on the other side. Now imagine, scattered in it, a superbly designed, quality the best, hotel no-hotel. The reception room is an old stone cellar, the 11 rooms are here and there: one down a cobble-stoned lane, another up a twisting stairway near the tower. The tiny restaurant is carved out of the side of the hill, the bar hangs over a cliff next to the church. Get the picture? Add linen sheets, some amazing baths, a pool on top of the world, and some of the best meals and wines of your life. Half of Tuscany lies at your feet for a walk afterwards in the sunshine or the moonlight.
