Much like the owners who stumbled across a dream in the thirteenth century ruins of this Tuscan hamlet with its villa and pilgrim staging post, once in a while you chance upon an absolute gem of a property. The Borgo Santo Pietro is more than just a luxury boutique hotel in Tuscany, it is the supreme epitome of rural Italian chic and charm. Located in stunningly beautiful countryside amidst rolling woodland and golden fields of wheat, this quintessential Italian boutique hotel has been lovingly restored over many years to beyond its former stature. With beautiful individually styled and exquisitely appointed guest rooms displaying magnificent murals and frescoes, glittering crystal chandeliers, handmade baroque furniture and exquisite antiques, this stone and terracotta mansion fulfils all expectations combining rural country chic, eighteen century grandeur and impeccable service to produce a world class experience.
Outside the long gravel driveway, lined with sentinel Cypresses sprouting out of beds of lavender, leads to the Borgo Santo Pietro entrance and a small car park hidden behind tall hedges. All around you the formal gardens are a sea of manicured flora, box hedges and trimmed lawns, revealing fountains, ponds, discrete gazebos and marquees where you can relax in the shade, at one with nature. A large lagoon style infinity swimming pool, complete with 'beach', sun loungers and parasols with glorious views of the wooded valley, is a haven of tranquillity. Nearby a grass tennis court and bocce pitch await more energetic activity whilst the Spa is the ultimate indulgence in keeping with the whole ambiance of the hotel. As for the wining and dining, well, this is where you will have to make further sacrifices, as any dieting that you might have had in mind will be out of the window. With the full resources of the hotel's extensive gardens yielding abundant fresh organic produce, complimented by locally sourced ingredients and a talented chef, the cuisine is unsurpassed in quality and execution; in short, a Tuscan experience full of promise.
