Borgo Santo Pietro: luxurious atmospheric villa hotel in Tuscany

luxury villa tuscany

Borgo Santo Pietro is a historic mansion acquired by a Danish couple, Jeanette and Claus Throttrup, who restored it and created a luxurious hotel, one of the most atmospheric places to stay in Tuscany. The Renaissance villa, set in 13 acres with formal gardens near Siena, is all about indulgence: the exquisite yet verging-on-baroque décor or leading-edge technology in each of the eight suites. It is a sumptuous private retreat for people who want a truly memorable experience.

All of the rooms have been carefully decorated to reflect elegant and luxurious Italian style. All ensuite bathrooms are opulent, yet provide comfort.  Each room has a seating area ideal for relaxing, reading, contemplating or perfect for a pre-dinner drink or breakfast. The rooms also have modern amenities such as modern lighting, climate control, plasma screen televisions, and WiFi.

For additional relaxing, the villa has a wellness center with a variety of treatments to help you unwind. It also has a fresh water infinity pool with stunning views of the countryside. To fill your appetite, the restaurant has innovative world class cuisine created from their organic gardens and is complemented by their cellar of fine international and Italian wines.

Surrounded by rolling hills, vineyards and protected forests, the area around the villa is perfect for walking and biking. Nearby is the lovely town of Siena and the gastronomic delights of Montepulciano, famous for its wine and cuisine. Do not miss the charming little town of Pienza, home of Aeneas Silvius Piccolomini (in Italian: Enea Silvio Piccolomini), who became Pope Pius II. His palace, the Palazzo Piccolomini, is a sight to behold. Piccolomini was the quintessential Renaissance man who took great interest in architecture and what we now call “urban planning”. He had Pienza rebuilt as the ideal Renaissance town, a blueprint that was copied across Italy. If you find yourself in Pienza, make sure you eat the fresh pecorino cheese.
