Our favourite rooms
We love the Conti di San Bonifacio Suite for one simple reason – it’s huge. Three of the walls have windows, there’s a huge four-poster bed delicately draped in muslin and a huge bath in the huge bathroom. For lots of natural light in a smaller space, pick a Junior Suite. Room 3, a Hill Top Terrace Deluxe has plenty of windows and a freestanding claw-foot bath tub in the black-, gold- and silver-speckled bathroom. Olive Grove Junior Suites 4 and 5 both open directly onto the garden.
Your sommelier’s nose for sampling the wine; some chic linens you won’t mind getting a bit dirty in the Tuscan countryside.
Dogs are welcome in all rooms except the Courtyard Club.
Extra beds are €50 a night; cots are €30. Babysitting with a local nanny can be provided with 24 hours’ notice. The restaurant has a children’s menu.
