Found in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, Borgo Santo Pietro is a 5-star boutique hotel and estate, encompassing restaurants, a holistic spa, organic skincare range Seed to Skin, commercial property design and construction PN Homes, bespoke yacht Satori, and the extensive working farm it calls home.
Situated in the heart of Tuscany, Relais Borgo Santo Pietro was once a healing stopover for medieval pilgrims. Today it continues to provide a sanctuary for modern souls, merging a 5 star luxury hotel and spa concept with a ‘farm to plate’ philosophy on a 300-acre estate.
A sumptuous feeling of home pervades the 800-year-old luxury farmhouse hotel, with its worn leather armchairs pulled up around open fires, fresh flower arrangements picked straight from the garden, and weathered brick wine cellar lined with boutique labels. Each of the boutique hotel’s 20 rooms has been singularly designed down to the utmost thoughtful detail, with custom-sought antique pieces, bespoke beds and frescoes executed by hand.
Our rooms combine this intimate luxury with ultimate seclusion, as light-filled, airy interiors open onto Mediterranean courtyards dotted with sun lounges and fragrant citrus trees, or leafy private terraces with outdoor fireplaces beside private pools, lounge areas and entirely private gardens. Adjoining suites can also be connected internally to create an intimate shared interior for families or friends.
A philosophy of nurture via nature and a spirit of collaboration are tangibly felt at Borgo Santo Pietro, where a teamwork of farmers, culinary gardeners and chefs work together to bring the fruits of organic cultivation to the table.
Borgo’s 300-acre organically cultivated estate includes market gardens, nut fields, herb gardens, extensive vineyards and forests, some of which house the estate’s drove of pigs. Each day the farmers collect milk from Borgo’s sheep which is then transformed into artisan cheese and yogurt at the on-site dairy. The farm includes free-range chickens, honey bees, alpacas and extensive vineyards and supplies both the inspiration and ingredients for its Michelin-starred Restaurant, as well as Trattoria Sull’Albero. The freshwater River Merse, famous throughout the region, runs through the outskirts of the estate.
A philosophy grounded in the principles of biodiversity and regenerative agriculture and the wish to share wondrously inventive cooking while respecting and highlighting the rhythm of nature and the authentic taste of our land.
Let executive chef Ariel Hagen and his team – together with the master gardener, the forager, the cheesemaker, the baker, the fermentation specialist, the butcher, the restaurant manager, the sommelier – take you on a delightful journey and enjoy the art of Borgo Santo Pietro’s soil-to-plate cuisine, celebrating the emotions triggered by the taste of our culinary gardens and estate produce.
Designed around a large spreading oak tree with rustic interiors that evoke an elegant expansive tree house, our Trattoria Sull’Albero (meaning treehouse) offers a laid-back lounge and dining ambience overlooking the fields and forests of the Valle Serena. Inside, the light-filled interior evokes the feeling of dining in an immense treehouse, with table settings beneath the oak boughs, exquisite wood detailing and trailing plants overhead. Exposed beams, studded leather armchairs and a rough-hewn wooden bar create an elegantly rustic and laid-back atmosphere, ideal for enjoying a traditional Tuscan meal by the fire or a glass of wine on the terrace.
The classic Tuscan menu of our ‘farm to plate’ fare showcases our organically cultivated ingredients sourced from our farm: freshly picked vegetables, artisanal cheeses, free-range eggs, in-house prosciutto ham and zero-kilometer sourced meat. Every Monday evening, Sull’Albero plays host to our gourmet Farmers’ Market, where guests are invited to take their pick from a range of fresh meat, fish, cheese and seasonal produce on offer, watch it being cooked on the spot, and dine outdoors in a convivial atmosphere of live music.
Within the exquisite Seed to Skin deep green glass bottles, nature and science blend seamlessly in the hand-crafted luxury skincare. Combining together the purest of natural ingredients, the secret of the skincare lays in the potency of plants, using science to extract the best possible holistic properties for targeted skin regeneration and health. Founder Jeanette Gron Thottrup has tapped her lifetime pursuit of natural herbal remedies, and joined her expertise with her passionate team of experts and scientists to alchemize a natural molecular system skincare for the face and body. Seed to Skin products have been many years in the making in the onsite state-of-the-art laboratory at the 12th century Borgo Santo Pietro estate in Tuscany. Originally a sanctuary of health for medieval pilgrims, healing is deeply embedded in the DNA of the Borgo. The Seed to Skin result is a powerfully effective holistic skincare range that is clinically proven to yield authentic cell regeneration. The 100% natural raw ingredients have been sourced sustainably and respectfully from the very best natural providers of raw materials worldwide, from the Borgo Santo Pietro estate and from its Tuscan environs.
Satori, a name meaning “instant enlightenment”, was born from the idea of bringing together five-star luxury with the splendor of nature. The elegant hand-carved wooden schooner is meticulously custom designed by the team behind the award-winning Borgo Santo Pietro Group. Its elegant detailing of glossy mahogany, teak and walnut and its expansive window views evoke the bygone sophistication of a 1920’s or 1930’s schooner while it encompasses all the amenities of contemporary luxury. The state-of-the art sophistication of its five luxurious cabins, marble bathrooms, a spa facility, several quiet common areas, three sun decks with sofas, a large salon with lounge and dining, and a separate private mid-deck dining area with bar are all devised with a view to anticipate guests’ needs.
The bespoke 41.5 meter vessel with its two 600-horsepower engines offer guests the choice of both motoring and enjoying the timeless feeling of sailing.Satori is available for charter throughout the Mediterranean in Italian, French, Greek, Turkish, and Croatian waters, with a flexible itinerary that can be shaped according to guests’ desires.
With its 20 years design experience in residential and commercial property, PN Homes remains the forerunner in conceiving and delivering exceptional projects for its global clients. As the owner of a 5-star luxury boutique hotel, two Michelin-starred restaurants and a luxury commercial yacht, PN Homes’ managing director Claus Thottrup possesses a keen insight into the economic investment required to realise outstanding luxury properties and anticipate the practical needs of guests and staff in a variety of commercial contexts.
