Conti di San Bonifacio Wine Resort

Restyled rustic farmhouse

This restored stone farmhouse sits in the middle of gorgeously green lands under the Tuscan sun. Conti di San Bonifacio is a working farm and wine estate where tables display wines straight from the vineyards for guests to taste and all of the space has a designer finish. It’s a rustic retreat that will feel like your own rural outpost – hire all five rooms and pretend you live on your own winery (one with magnificent views from every angle).

You’ll be staying at a wine residence, so make the most of it with a private tasting of a Chianti or two. They’ll also teach you how to make traditional Tuscan food with a cookery class. Castiglione della Pescaia beach is around half an hour from the villa. Bicycles are available for hire from the hotel – set off on a tour of the hilly countryside (or do it on horseback). The hotel can also help to organise boat trips, sailing lessons and diving. Fishing trips sail from Piombino, a 40-minute drive away. The nearest golf course is Punta Ala Golf Club, but it’s members only at weekends. The hotel has a guide on hand to take you on personal tours of cities including Florence, Pisa and Siena.
