DREAMY TUSCANY

In the Tuscan countryside, between Florence and Siena, Borgo Santo Pietro stands out: a 5-star luxury boutique hotel.

With a holistic spa, a cooking school, a Michelin-starred restaurant, a 120-hectare organic farm surrounded by vineyards and gardens, is a dreamy place in Tuscany.

It has recently added a winter touch, waiting for the Easter reopening. Essentially, it looks like a mighty stone house at the end of a cypress avenue, with the rolling Tuscan hills as a backdrop, surrounded by a scented garden.

In a time before, those walls housed a hostel for pilgrims and still boast a quiet atmosphere.

An elegant and charming villa with twenty rooms and suites – eight of them are inside the 13thcentury main building – inspired by the family’s rich history. All furnished and finished with several hand-made elements created by local artisans, using traditional techniques.

Each room boasts a unique style with hand-made pieces of furniture, embellished with precious fabrics. In addition, antiques and frescoes enhance the whole setting, even in the shared areas.

This villa passionately stems from Claus and Jeanette Thottrup’s recovery project, its Danish owners who love Italy.

The complex essentially consists of a 13th-century abode, formerly used as a refuge for monks and travellers from England and all over Europe on pilgrimage to Rome.

The renovation has preserved the original features of a stone country house, enriched by refined details.

The majesty of the building is balanced by the surrounding gardens, covering more than five hectares of parkland. Nothing is left to chance, thanks to a project created by landscape architect Helle Valstad.

Borgo Santo Pietro is perfect for a romantic holiday: it is very close to the roofless Abbey of San Galgano: tourists and photographers love this open-air church for its mystical charm and the epic “sword in the stone”.
