The Relais Borgo San Felice
A stop at San Felice allows one to visit the winery, taste the wines in the Enoteca, and stroll the hamlet, which has kept the enticing atmosphere of old -- though it is perfectly restored -- with alleys, tabernacles, loggias, and cobblestones. But the highlight of the town is undoubtedly the Relais Borgo
San Felice, four stars of hospitality that easily meet the exacting standards set by Relais & Châteaux.
Restraint prevails; the welcome is warm but not wild, the most refined comforts are almost hidden from
view in a setting that must remain the most classic of Tuscan villages. The Relais boasts 43 rooms and suites, some in the manor house that dominates the town square, and some in the houses hidden in the
alleyways. For the guests of the Relais, and others as well, there is also the refined, creative kitchen of the Ristorante Poggio Rosso.
Delicacy, softness, nothing too brightly colored or loud, because a vacation in Chianti must mean abandoning oneself to nature, enjoying the gentle panoramas or following the marked trails that wind
through forests and vineyards, or biking the white dirt roads of Chianti. And then a small golf course, tennis courts, a pool, a gym, and finally the Centro Benessere where one can enjoy wine therapy: for once polyphenols are no longer mysterious components of wine, but the source of the antioxidants that
defeat free radicals, and thus fight obesity and stress.
