A sense of calm and relaxationThis hotel was born out of passion and desire to create and share a unique yet welcoming place where nature meets luxury. The location they chose in Tuscany was essential for bringing a sense of calm, relaxation and well-being and has enabled them to transport you far away from the stresses of the outside world.
Nestled in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, luxury knows no limits. With a 13th century villa at its heart, this hotel is a haven where people can come to celebrate a special occasion or to simply enjoy a taste of heaven.
The villa itself has 3 rooms ranging from Deluxe to Superior, 5 Villa suites (including the fully secluded Grand Santo Pietro Suite) and 7 Garden Suites.
Hospitality coupled with an environment where clarity of mind and food for the soul are abundant. The land is not only stunningly beautiful, but rich and fertile and provides them with a bounty of organic vegetables, herbs and even honey which their kitchen transforms into culinary delights. Set on a working farm, the villa is bathed in the beauty of its surroundings – an exquisite jewel.

Flower arrangingAt Borgo San Pietro, they have their own in-house florist who works in the flower hut right in the middle of the garden. Guests may drop in at their leisure and observe her while she works or even take a flower arranging course if they so wish. It’s a great way to learn about the local flowers and create beautiful arrangements that can then be kept in the room or given as a special gift.
Artist in ResidenceEach month Borgo invites a resident artist to come stay and work on its grounds. Guests may stop by their workshop for a chat or sign up for customized art lessons. Borgo provides the idyllic setting for inspiring the “inner artist” in everyone! All art supplies are included in the fee.
Picnic, Gourmet & Take AwayTheir ample gardens provide the perfect setting for a special gourmet picnic. Pick your favourite spot and Borgo’s staff will set up a blanket and bring you a pre-prepared basket filled with scrumptious goodies for you to enjoy. Or, for the more adventurous, rent one of their scooters or mountain bikes and ride off to a more remote location with a take-away basket. It’s the perfect way to relax and enjoy the surrounding nature.
Cooking LessonsTake home newly acquired gastronomy skills, as taught by their expert chefs. A real “hands-on” experience that you will never forget. Find the perfect accompaniment by sampling local wine, cheese or honey in tasting sessions on offer. Not to forget the little chefs, who can learn the joys of home cooking in a fun and safe environment by the rustic pool bar.
Holistic SpaThe 800-year-old spa building, once a bakery, has been transformed into Borgo’s warm and healing holistic heart where you can relax and recuperate.
