nr Montevarchi (Chianti), Italy
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.
