Borgo Santo Pietro from personal dream to luxury hotel in Tuscany
Our boutique 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, near Siena, San Gimignano and San Galgano and not far from Florence, 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. With a 13th century villa at its heart, our five star award-winning hotel is a haven rich in history where people can come to celebrate a special occasion such as a honeymoon or a wedding, to relax with our bespoke spa treatments or to simply enjoy a romantic taste of heaven.
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”.
