Borgo San Felice

*****

A sumptuous 5-star Relais & Châteaux estate, Borgo San Felice is supremely situated in the illustrious Chianti Classico wine producing region. Perched upon a stunning hillside just outside of the center of Castelnuovo Berardenga, the estate is a sprawling 8th century borgo (village) surrounding by scenic vineyards and featuring magnificent views onto the expansive landscape.

The result of a complete restoration of the historic village, Borgo San Felice has retained its medieval character with the careful preservation of its original stone dwellings, chapel, narrow streets and countryside quaintness. The luxury property offers 33 guest rooms and 20 suites cleverly dispersed throughout the village’s network of historic aristocratic houses. To honor the property’s antique origins, guest rooms feature handcrafted period furnishings, wood beamed ceilings, decorative materials indicative of the region, such as terracotta, stone, and majolica, and a neutral palette of Tuscan-made textiles.

A true gastronomic destination in Chianti, Borgo San Felice’s gourmet offerings include Il Poggio Rosso restaurant, helmed by two-Michelin starred chef Francesco Bracali. Serving a menu dedicated to regional Tuscan and Chianti flavors and centered on standout local ingredients, Il Poggio Rosso reimagines tradition with an inventive twist. The estate’s La Terrazza di San Felice is a rustic eatery featuring a delightful al fresco terrace, where a menu of country inspired dishes and grilled Tuscan meats are accented by wines from Agricola San Felice estate, the 140 hectare vineyard and winery located adjacent to the Borgo. At San Felice Wine Bar, guests can further discover the bounty of the winery with tastings of estate produced vintages and other gourmet products. Other outstanding facilities include an outdoor pool with Pool-side Bar, tennis courts, and deluxe Wellness Center designed by exclusive Florentine apothecary Dr. Vranjes.
