Fodor's Expert Review Villa Bordoni

Via San Cresci 31/32, Greve in Chianti, Tuscany, 50022, Italy Fodor's Choice

Scottish expats David and Catherine Gardner transformed a ramshackle 16th-century villa into a stunning retreat where no two rooms are alike—all have stenciled walls; some have four-poster beds, others small mezzanines. Bathrooms are a riot of color, with tiles from Vietri. The second floor, with a cozy fireplace, is the perfect place for a cup of tea or a glass of wine. The hotel's restaurant and their talented chefs offer cooking lessons in the modern kitchen.
