HOTEL OVERVIEWOur hotel was born out of the passion and desire to create and share a unique yet welcoming place where nature meets luxury. The location we chose in Tuscany was essential for bringing a sense of calm, relaxation and well-being and has enabled us to transport you far away from the stresses of the outside world. In fact, we felt an immediate spiritual connection to this place that inspired an internal seed which, with love and passion, grew into the Borgo Santo Pietro that our guests enjoy today. With a 13th century villa at its heart, our hotel is a haven where people can come to celebrate a special occasion or to simply enjoy a taste of heaven. Nestled in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, luxury knows no limits.
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 us with a bounty of organic vegetables, herbs and even honey which our kitchen transforms into culinary delights. Set on a working farm, the villa is bathed in the beauty of its surroundings – an exquisite jewel.
Our definition of luxury is attention to detail, unsurpassed friendly service and unique experiences in a comfortable yet stylish setting. We have taken inspiration from our own personal travels and observations, pinpointing the very details that make the difference between a 5 star hotel and “The Borgo Experience”.Go To TopROOMS & SUITESSuperior Rooms
