Residenza Napoleone III
This three-room, one-bedroom suite near the Spanish Steps is named after the Emperor of France (and nephew of Napoleon I), who stayed here, and housed on the piano nobile of a palazzo that belongs to Principessa Letizia Ruspoli. It’s suitably grand and decadent, with chandeliers, gilded busts, heirloom antiques, and oil paintings that swing back to reveal a plasma TV and a tiny bathroom. A separate Roof Garden Suite is shrouded in greenery and offers 360-degree views over the rooftops of Rome.

Borgo Santo Pietro
Claus Thottrup bought this 13th-century villa near the beautiful roofless abbey of San Galgano as a wedding present for his wife Jeannette. The 15 classic rooms and suites – some with open fires, frescoed walls and claw-foot baths – are insanely pretty, and the 13 acres of grounds include a freeform pool, a spa, a rose walk, and organic gardens that grow produce for the Michelin-starred restaurant and Treehouse Bar.

There are 13 suites in the main building, which have magnificent staircases with stone-mullioned, stained-glass windows, and a further eight in three guest houses and a boathouse.
