Hotel Borgo San Felice
An enchanting ‘Chianti Classico’ estate comprising a church, vineyard and numerous agricultural buildings, the 8th Century hamlet of Borgo San Felice is one of those phenomenally rare hotel experiences that has to be seen to be believed. Ringed by towering oak trees and a dancing stream, the fairytale châteaux is a delightful private wedding venue.
Lodgings include double suites and self-contained apartments, with captivating views toward the city of Siena. Decked out in neutral tones and furnished with one-of-a-kind Tuscan antiques, the hotel’s 46 rooms are luxurious, kitted out with Wi-Fi, LED televisions and remote-controlled air-conditioning to maximise the comfort of your stay.
At the faded pink San Felice Manor House, you’ll find the famed Sangiovese wine cellar, chock full of San Felice’s prestigious Brunello and Il Quercione labels. Wine tours can be pre-booked at the main reception desk, however you can just as easily sample the fruits of the vineyard at Poggio Rosso Restaurant. Headed up by Michelin-starred Chef Francesco Bracali, the restaurant offers an appetizing menu of authentic Tuscan recipes, twinned with various Chianti Classico wines from across the region. With subdued lighting and patio tables, it’s the perfect end to a day of tennis, pony-trekking or pampering down at the Wellness Spa!
