Relais Borgo Santo Pietro
$$$GOLD LIST 2020
Tuscany’s Borgo Santo Pietro has extended from nine to 20 rooms since its 2008 opening, all done in flawless style. The inn has a Michelin-featured café and its own normal healthy skin line. A Relais and Châteaux property, this thirteenth century estate set in the midst of nurseries and a working ranch basically encapsulates the serene Tuscan lifestyle:
Legitimate Venetian nobility, the current tally and royal lady (Giberto Bianca) still live here with their five youngsters in a rambling condo at the head of the structure. The 24 rooms have been opened into huge numbers of the palazzo’s unique spaces, so they are for the most part remarkable. However, the richness doesn’t contend with Jean-Michel Gathy’s moderate B&B Italia furniture. This is hands down the most amazing lodging in Venice. Duplicates from $1,052.
