Borgo Santo Pietro

Tuscany, Italy

Nature meets luxury at Borgo Santo Pietro: a 300-acre boutique hotel and wellness estate located in Tuscany, close to Siena, San Gimignano, and Florence. Intentionally designed to bring a sense of calm, relaxation, and wellbeing to anyone who visits, this award-winning hotel is steeped in history, making it the perfect place to celebrate special occasions such as a wedding, honeymoon, or anniversary.

Stay within the hotel’s original 13th century villa which offers eight rooms and themed suites – each individually designed – with stunning views over the formal gardens or surrounding countryside. A handful of garden suites offer ultimate seclusion without compromising on the attentiveness of the hotel’s staff.

The story

Hoteliers Jeanette and Claus Thottrup spent seven years building, growing, and nurturing Borgo Santo Pietro, before opening its doors in 2008. The estate now comprises an organically-cultivated working farm; an artisan cheese dairy; extensive culinary gardens; medicinal healing garden; and two vineyards. The hotel’s all-natural skincare line, Seed to Skin, can be found in every room and its body range is made from sheep’s milk from the hotel’s very own flock.

Your stay

The Pool House at La Casa dei Fiori Bianchi comprises two separate suites that can be enjoyed separately, or connected internally via the garden to form one single complex. Each suite has its own terrace and an entirely private 390ft2 saltwater pool.

How to spend your time

Make the most of the hotel’s organic produce with a cooking class at Borgo Cooking School; learn how to paint with the property’s resident artist; enjoy the healing properties of nature at the Borgo Spa, and the hotel’s intentionally designed gardens. Then, when the day grows old and the sun starts to set, enjoy a late dinner at Michelin-starred Meo Modo, showcasing the freshest ingredients in dishes that are time-honoured and simple.

For dinner, you can’t miss Trattoria Sullabero, a laid back, farm-to-table experience with tables that wrap around a large, spreading oak tree that sits majestically in the middle of the room.
