Villa Sassolini

nr Montevarchi (Chianti), Italy

Rooms

All of the bedrooms and suites are stunning, spacious and have the same stylish, minimalist look, 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. The Morocco Classicroom is slightly smaller and doesn't have the view. There are 2 more Classic rooms tucked away in an annexe 50m from the villa - we haven’t seen them yet, but interiors look gorgeous and they’re likely to afford extra privacy.

Save to favouritesPrintMailVilla SassoliniWhen we arrived in the peaceful hamlet of Moncioni, we wondered where a design hotel could be. But hidden behind plain stone walls is a very stylish find. For centuries a holiday home of Florentine nobility, Villa Sassolini has been impeccably restored by acclaimed designer Massimo Tani, known for his novel approach to everyday objects. Villa Sassolini, however, is anything but everyday. Smart, contemporary furnishings, softened with the occasional period piece and cool muted colours, have created an atmosphere of clean, understated luxury. It's a refreshing change from the many over-antiquified Tuscan villas around. You're in the heart of Tuscany, up high and the surroundings are inspiring, with breathtaking views of the Monti del Chianti and the valley below. Dine in the intimate restaurant with its fantastic menu or grab your Guccis and soak up some rays next to the good-looking pool. You'll understand why the lucky nobility kept it to themselves for so long.
