Fodor's Expert Review Castello di Spaltenna

Pieve di Spaltenna 13, Gaiole in Chianti, Tuscany, 53013, Italy Fodor's Choice

This rustic yet elegant lodging includes a former convent (dating to the 1300s) and a Romanesque church; inside you'll find rooms with canopy beds, chiseled-stone fireplaces, and massage-jet tubs (in suites). Windows look out on the hills, woods, and vineyards. Dine by candlelight in the courtyard on sophisticated classics—carrè di agnello in crosta di noce (walnut-coated rack of lamb), for example—at the first-class restaurant ($$–$$$).
