Villa La Borghese, Siena, Italy There are plenty of opportunities to indulge in la dolce vita at Villa La Borghese, a 14-bedroom ancient Tuscan villa which has been lovingly restored in the beautiful historic town of Siena.

Here you can do as the Romans, by relaxing in the Roman-style baths. First unwind in the tepidarium, a heated room which soothes the body, before moving into the caldarium, a hot and steamy room with a plunge bath which opens the pores of the skin. Finish off in the frigidarium, a cold pool of water which then closes the skin pores. You will feel completely refreshed and invigorated!
