nr Montevarchi (Chianti), Italy
All of the stylish, minimalist bedrooms and suites are
stunning and spacious, with limed floorboards, sleek wooden beds
painted in pale olive green, fabrics in muted shades of cream and
brown, and lots of natural textures. But there are also some
individual flourishes - a delicate ceiling fresco, huge ceiling
beams, an exquisitely carved cabinet...
Try to get a room at the front: they have fabulous views overlooking the pool, valley and hills (the best are the Paris Suite and the In Montagana and Marrakech Deluxe rooms). We also liked the A Caccia Suite, which has a cute side-facing Juliet balcony. Rooms at the back of the hotel are just as lovely inside, but they do face other houses in the village, and the windows are rather small - making the interiors a bit dark.
Most of the Deluxe rooms have double beds, either a four-poster or low platform; In Montagna has wide twin four-poster beds instead ('French beds'). If you don’t want to shell out for a Suite, the Marrakech Deluxe comes in at a very close second. The fantastic view and striking round window in the bathroom, makes up for the lack of bathtub. There’s also a second-floor Family Suite made up of 2 interconnecting rooms: Morocco and Indonesia.
Finally, 50m from the villa, there are 2 Classic rooms hidden in an annexe building – we haven’t viewed them yet, but their quiet setting and chic interiors are promising.
