Villa Sassolini - Review
Originally built in the 14th century, the villa has been impeccably restored with lashings of design talent and a pleasingly stripped-back feel. Behind its plain stone walls, you’ll find sleekly stylish interiors and a sense of unhurried calm.
Beamed ceilings and bare boards underline Villa Sassolini’s rustic-chic feel. Ten elegant bedrooms offer the max in style and space. Limed oak wood floors, big beds and painted beams are set off by smart contemporary furnishings (with the occasional vintage piece) and soft shades of cream, chocolate and olive green.
Up to the minute bathrooms are made for indulgence – suites come with deep bathtub centre-stage – while some rooms have four-posters. Help-yourself minibars are stocked with complimentary soft drinks.
Rosemary and lavender
If the rooms are good, the pool terrace – fetchingly lit at night – is the piece de resistance. Take in the scent of waist-high lavender and rosemary as you stretch out on a sunlounger or breakfast in sight of Monte del Chianti. If it’s cool, make yourselves at home in Villa Sassolini’s timber-floored lounge, with its books and fireplace, where low lighting adds to the sense of calm.
Dining is a highlight here – whether it’s breakfast on the wide terrace or dinner in the softly lit restaurant, with its exposed stonework and tall mirrors. Expect a new take on regional Tuscan cuisine, with crisp linen table runners and matching slip covered chairs.
Bicycles are on hand to explore your hillside surroundings, and you’re in easy reach of Siena, Florence and other historic Tuscan towns – not to mention some outstanding designer outlets.
