Hotel Le Pozze di Lecchi

Set deep in the Chianti countryside, Le Pozze di Lecchi is a peaceful, rural retreat with impressive amenities. This lovingly restored 15th-century mill has large grounds with a panoramic pool.

Despite the tranquillity of this green, relaxing hotel, exploring Tuscany is easy from here, with Siena just 30 minutes' drive away. The family who manage Hotel Le Pozze di Lecchi will be pleased to book a variety of activities for you, from wine tasting and cooking classes organised directly in the hotel, to tours of nearby landmarks.

Stroll through Le Pozze di Lecchi's well-kept gardens and their 7 hectares of vineyards and olive groves. Alternatively take a bike out and go visit the natural springs at Lecchi, from which the hotel takes its name. Play bowls or table tennis, or just relax by the split-level pool and soak up the sun as you enjoy the views.

Hotel Le Pozze di Lecchi has a lovely relaxation area where you can enjoy a Jacuzzi, a sauna or a Turkish bath. After an aromatherapy massage why not head to the restaurant for a taste of some typical Tuscan delicacies?
