One of Italy’s great luxury boutique retreats, Borgo Santo Pietro occupies an elegant villa and surrounding stone hamlet in a little-visited corner of Tuscany, 45-minutes’ drive from Siena.

The Danish owners have painstakingly restored the buildings and expanded the estate, which now includes a working farm supplying much of the produce for the resort’s two excellent restaurants, plus the superb line of herbal ‘Seed to Skin’ spa products.

The cocooning interiors are done out in elegant style, featuring crystal chandeliers, antiques and paintings, with crackling open fires for cool weather. Paths wind through the extensive gardens which include small, formal parterres and wildflower-filled fields; daybeds for whiling away hot afternoons are dotted throughout.

The exceptional spa has recently launched new seed-to-skin Tuscan in-room spa treatments, bookable in the five pool houses and selected suites only. These mini spa havens combine facials, body treatment, massages, and holistic healing. Interestingly, each house/suite has it’s own dedicated signature treatment exclusive and bookable in that particular room only.

There’s an immense amount of space for just 22 rooms, making this an ideal choice for a couple looking for a romantic stay. There are no major sights nearby – the ‘get away from it all’ location is one of the attractions. It’s a haven of seclusion, dedicated to the ultimate well-being.

Don't miss

Visit the hotel’s healing garden and state-of-the-art laboratory to learn how its organic skincare is created by fusing the ancient traditions of Franciscan monks with cutting-edge molecular science. Every lotion and potion at this organic spa is natural and grown on-site.

Surrounding area

Borgo Santo Pietro stands in its own extensive grounds in a quiet corner of south-eastern Tuscany, far from any main roads and surrounded by rolling, wooded hills, olive groves and vineyards.
