The Relais-Chateaux hotel group never lets you down; each hotel is a jewel in its own way, and I always start planning a trip by seeing which of their hotels are in the area where I want to visit. In this case, the Borgo San Felice looked like the best country hotel-restaurant in the Relais-Chateaux catalog, and my visit there justified this intuition. It is in a perfect location in the Chianti vinyards, nice for visiting the towns and vinyards in the day, then having dinner on their terrace watching the sun set. I was lucky to have dinner there when a pianist played us some nice jazz outdoors under the stars. The room I stayed in was first-rate, too.
