Leading Golf L'Andana

Castiglione della Pescaia, Italy

The former hunting lodge of Leopold II, Duke of Tuscany, L’Andana is located in Italy's stunning Maremma region, celebrated for its lush countryside that stretches to the Tyrrhenian Sea. More recently, the bucolic setting enchanted Alain Ducasse, the legendary chef and restaurateur who teamed up with entrepreneur Vittorio Moretti to design his version of an Italian countryside inn. L'Andana's long driveway is lined with cypress trees, with vistas of olive orchards and vineyards in the distance, immediately evoking Tuscan beauty. Not surprisingly, food and wine are the focal points of a stay: Trattoria Toscana is Italy's sole Alain Ducasse establishment and its wine cellar makes the most of the property's desirable location: the majority of the 250-plus labels are local.

Rocco Forte Hotel de Rome

Berlin, Germany

Hotel de Rome is set in a 19th-century bank building in Berlin’s Mitte neighborhood, and it offers a whimsical take on these historic surroundings: its spa is located in what used to be the vault, and the Opera Suite, the former office of the financial institution's founder, features the original oak paneling. It's not all old-world history, though. The rooms, with their high ceilings, saturated color scheme and high-tech amenities, are the perfect merging of old and new, while the restaurant features a thoroughly modern take on time-honored Mediterranean. Children receive a special welcome: complimentary food and drink for the under-six set, designated swim time, and a personal invitation to bake cookies in the hotel's kitchen.
