    Our opinion

    The Borgo San Felice is highly recommended for a charming ambience and high levels of service and comfort.

    Hotel description

    The Borgo San Felice occupies almost the entire hamlet of San Felice on a slight hill northeast of Siena in Chianti country. Owned by the San Felice wine makers, the hamlet was converted almost house by house into an hotel about ten years ago and is now a beautiful Relais & Châteaux hotel. Now, Borgo San Felice is one of the most appealing hotels in Tuscany, corresponding to the characteristics of charm, character and quality we pride ourselves on. Surrounded by vineyards and gently rolling hills, the turrets of Siena can be seen in the distance against the setting sun. The houses occupied by the hotel surround the old village square and church and all have been carefully renovated and furnished to a very high standard. Pots of flowers adorn paths, lemon trees stand on terraces, lawns are carefully maintained. The Borgo San Felice has a total of 60 rooms and suites located in different houses and decorated in slightly different styles, some being quite modern. There is a spacious, very comfortable lounge and bar, an excellent restaurant charmingly decorated open every day serving creative dishes covering demands for a lighter lunch to a more robust dinner. The Michelin- starred restaurant Il Poggio Rosso, serves excellent regional specialities such as pigeon and truffles in season. The swimming pool is surrounded by a sun terrace, there are two tennis courts and a wine shop selling the San Felice wine, seventeen different kinds in all of white, red and vin santo. We recommend the Borgo San Felice most strongly.
