Chianti: nature and relaxation
A holiday devoted to self-care and well-being in Tuscany
If you're headed to Tuscany, choose to stay at one of the charming hotels or agriturismi of the splendid Chianti area, where you'll be fully immersed in the peaceful atmosphere of the Tuscan countryside (only a few kilometers from the area's most monumental art cities).
This entire area is dotted with castles, fortresses and medieval hamlets, not to mention the ruins, watchtowers, convents, abbeys, churches and farmhouses scattered around the area. 
The architecture in the Chianti area features natural materials that blend perfectly with the surrounding countryside: "pietra serena" limestone, terracotta and "alberese" stone. In this area, you won't have trouble finding a place to stay, from castles to old villas, farmhouses and medieval residences. Ditch the classic hotel setting for something a bit out of the norm: here in Chianti, everything is unique and personal!
The area boasts several facilities offering top-quality body treatments. Many hotels provide the same spa services you would find in the big city, including saunas, solariums, aesthetic treatments, holistic anti-stress massages, chromotherapy, aromatherapy, tropical showers, "emotional zones" and sensorial treatments to balance both mind and body. Discover how easy it is to find top-notch, cutting-edge wellness facilities and services in this friendly and welcoming Chianti environment.     
Enjoy traditional Tuscan cuisine everywhere in Tuscany! Whether it's a traditional trattoria or a hotel-restaurant, almost every eatery in Tuscany offers top-quality food and drink. Delicious traditional Tuscan dishes are endless around here, from homemade pastas to wild-boar meat products and Florentine steak.
Thanks to the region's age-old wine tradition, you'll find an endless variety of wines to accompany these culinary delights. Taste the most famous wine in Tuscany, "Chianti Classico D.O.C.G." made in Greve, Radda, Gaiole, Castellina, Castelnuovo Berardenga, San Casciano Val di Pesa, Tavernelle Val di Pesa, Barberino Val d'Elsa and Poggibonsi.
Other top-notch wines to try are "Colli Fiorentini," "Montalbano," "Rufina," "Montespertoli," "Colli Aretini," "Colline Pisane" and "Colli Senesi." Ask for one while dining out and you surely won't be disappointed!
Head to one of the many historic vineyards around the region to try Tuscany's famed wines. The area's wine tours offer quality accommodations and the chance to learn more about the winemaking process of this unique and brilliant "nectar of the Gods."
