Relais Borgo Santo Pietro Tuscany | Florence, Italy | One of the best decisions I made while curating this fabulous trip to Italy, was to choose driving from Rome to Florence, over taking the train. It took us approx. four hours and a half, door-to-door from our hotel in Rome, The First Hotel (which BTW was lovely, and I will blog about soon) to our new hotel the very lovely Villa San Michele by Orient-Express in Fiesole, up on the hills overlooking Florence. And the second best decision, was to stop for lunch at the uber chic Relais Borgo Santo Pietro in Tuscany. We left Rome around 10.30PM and by 1.30PM we were seated overlooking the Tuscan Valley and drinking local wine over a fantastic gourmet experience. Like someone said “There is nothing like drinking wine at La Toscana”.
Relais Borgo Santo Pierto by Relais & Chateux is just breathtaking. I strongly recommend visiting for the day or to stay overnight. Chic, sophisticated and old school are just a few words to describe this jewel, a place where luxury meets nature. A 13th century villa at its heart, this hotel is a haven where people can come to celebrate a special occasion or to simply enjoy a taste of heaven. Nestled in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, luxury knows no limits. 15 bedrooms among rooms, suites and villas.We enjoyed a lovely lunch by Chef Stefano Santo, featuring herbs and vegetables grown by then at the Borgo. By 4.30PM we were already on our way to Florence, which took us only one hour and twenty minutes, with gorgeous views of the Tuscan region. Carlos Melia Luxury Travel Curator – www.carlosmelia.com
