Borgo San Felice

More than just a hotel, Borgo San Felice is an authentic medieval hamlet — lovingly restored from its eighth-century origins and transformed into one of Italy's truly unique lodgings. Here, you will find just 33 guest rooms and 20 suites, some of which are located in a former palace and all of which are tastefully decorated with handcrafted antique furniture. Along with expected holiday amenities, such as a heated swimming pool and tennis courts, the property features a spa in a renovated olive oil mill, a Tuscan restaurant, an adjacent Chianti Classico wine estate and a Romanesque church ideal for weddings. While there's no reason to leave this magnificent property, if you do feel inclined to explore the neighboring vineyards, vintage automobiles are available for area tours.
