    Hotel description

    A charming boutique hotel in the Chianti region, Relais Villa Belpoggio boasts an authentic Tuscan style within refined landscaped gardens. Surrounded by olive groves, these gardens are characterised by pristine lawns and rose bushes, while expansive views typify the region, looking over the Pratomagno woods, the Chianti Mountains and the Arno Valley. The elegant mansion itself dates back to the 17th century and its rich history is evident in the antiques that decorate the interior, which is warm and welcoming. Guest accommodation is certainly boutique, with each of the mere 10 guestrooms individually decorated to reflect the uniqueness of each room’s dimensions. Some feature exposed stone floors and walls and others offer a distinctly Tuscan feel with terracotta floor tiles, dark wood furniture, log fires and wrought iron bedsteads. Of the nine double rooms and one Junior Suite, certain room configurations make up apartments suitable for up to six people. This makes Relais Villa Belpoggio an excellent option for families. The restaurant is as authentic as it gets, with exposed stone walls and an arched redbrick ceiling taking a carriage shape. Dine here twice a week and spend your other evenings exploring the a number of rustic dining venues in the vicinity. You may also participate in onsite cookery courses, which are a fabulous introduction to regional cuisine. Also within the grounds is a small swimming pool, which is a wonderful place to take in the spectacular scenery, and a small chapel is a characterful addition. The natural environment beyond the estate promises an array of outdoor pursuits to help you get to know the landscape, from horseriding, mountain biking and trekking. More subdued options include golf, a thermal spa and the onsite cookery courses offered by the hotel. Relais Villa Belpoggio is an intimate base for experiencing rural Tuscany, whilst Florence and Siena are just a daytrip away.
