Ah, blissful Chianti. Many declare this Tuscany’s prettiest corner, including everyone who has ever stayed at Erinda. From this spacious villa’s various patio areas, each lined with comfy furniture, far-reaching views of vineyards, ancient olive trees and lush, hilly vegetation stretch away. Expect to take a zillion awestruck photographs, whether you’re dining under a pergola, bathing in the heated outdoor pool or lounging in its adjacent hot tub, Though part of a classic, 20-acre Chianti estate, Erinda is surprisingly contemporary. Whites, woods and creams colour its airy, open-plan rooms – including a hub which combines the Smart satellite-TV lounge, state-of-the-art kitchen and sleek dining table. A mezzanine sitting nook just above suits quiet book-reading; even more relaxing is the indoor plunge pool. As for the spacious bedrooms, each boasts walk-in shower units, air-conditioning and luxurious queen-sized beds made up daily by housekeepers. Need extra space? We can also rent out the neighbouring, 14-person Fleda. In walking distance is Panzano, a medieval town with shops, cafes and restaurants serving home-cooked Tuscan classics. Wineries abound, of course, especially around the affluent village of Gaiole, as do golf courses and hiking trails. Monteriggioni and San Gimignano will sate walled and hill-town lovers alike, and you’re conveniently located between Siena – known for its horse-racing Palio, held twice a year – and the galleries, churches and castles of Florence.
