Majestic 14th-century Tuscan estate with an impressive restaurant and wine cellar, tennis courts and an outdoor pool
Overlooking the Tuscan city of Siena, Borgo Scopeto Relais is a majestic 14th-century estate surrounded on all sides by oak forest, vineyards and olive groves. This immaculately preserved medieval property features 58 guestrooms and suites, all tastefully and traditionally decorated. Some suites and villas have original 17th-century frescoes; others feature four-poster beds, separate living rooms and private gardens. The marble-clad bathrooms are large and luxe, with bathtubs or walk-in rainfall showers. Indulge in a treatment at the Borgo Scopeto Relax spa, which uses beauty products made from the estate's own oil, wine and honey. Dine on traditional Sienese fare at La Tinaia, a swanky restaurant in the hotel’s ancient cellar. Active types can limber up at the gym, take a dip in the outdoor pool or play a game of tennis on one of the two hard surface courts.
In the Area
Explore the Tuscan countryside in style by renting a Vespa or a vintage Alfa Romeo (the hotel can arrange both), then cruise into nearby Siena – arguably the most romantic city in the world – and make a beeline for the duomo, a 12th-century cathedral with an intricate green, red and white marble façade. After touring the church’s grand Gothic interior, do your taste buds a favor and head to Tre Cristi, a beautifully frescoed seafood-centric restaurant established in 1830. Fashion-savvy travelers will want to visit the Mall, about an hour’s drive from the estate, where you can stock up on discount threads from top Italian brands, including Gucci and Fendi. And make time to explore the Chianti wine region, which is home to tons of vineyards that offer tastings, including the Fattoria Viticcio and the Montefioralle winery.
