Borgo Pignano

****

A sprawling 720 acre estate situated on a hilltop between the medieval towns of Volterra and San Gimignano, Borgo Pignano is a glorious retreat harnessing the very essence of the Tuscan countryside.

Borgo Pignano’s eighteenth century villa is the heart of the property, surrounded by English gardens and pristine landscapes, seemingly unchanged since Renaissance times. The main building offers 14 sophisticated guest rooms and suites, some featuring their original frescos, and all adorned with white marble or travertine bathrooms, elegant furnishings, and exquisite views of the countryside, woods or gardens. An elevator provides access to every floor, and Wi-Fi is available throughout the villa.

Dedicated to a philosophy of gracious hospitality and healthy living enhanced by nature and sustainability, the property has introduced a system of organic and Biodynamic agriculture to cultivate its fields of grains and two large gardens filled with herbs, fruits and vegetables, which provide the freshest ingredients for guests to enjoy. Borgo Pignano features a charming restaurant where chefs prepare authentic Tuscan meals using seasonal ingredients and produce sourced either directly from the estate itself or from local organic farms. The property’s additional amenities include an infinity pool carved from limestone and offering splendid views of the Tuscan landscape. A cozy library and music room provide guests quiet corners for relaxation, while the billiard room is a lively spot to play pool and sip an evening drink. The estate’s expanse of orchards, gardens and paths are wonderful opportunities for guests to appreciate nature and admire the surrounding beauty.
