Borgo San Pietro
“I go to Italy almost every year for a dose of long, languorous, sunny Mediterranean afternoons. This is one of my favorite places to visit. The beautifully restored 13th-century villa is set in rolling Tuscan countryside. The area is dotted with pretty medieval villages and a drive around is highly recommended for a slice of local life and some stunning views. Back at the hotel, there are 13 acres of lovely grounds. I love taking an aimless wander and getting mildly lost, happening across a herb garden here or an antique fountain there. The whole atmosphere is relaxed yet refined: owners Jeanette and Claus are super welcoming and just 15 suites makes it feel small and intimate. There’s a great spa and pool - although I prefer swimming in the nearby river - clear, clean and peaceful.”

A romantic Tuscany.
Whoever you feel most relaxed with - children are welcomed, although there are not dedicated facilities for them an they might not really appreciate the gentle outdoor activities and low-key, relaxed atmosphere.

Best time to go
Spring and autumn are warm without being too hot and the area is less crowded than high summer.
Without taking a car it can be hard to go anywhere other than the hotel for dinner - however the food here is delicious home-made Italian classics, so you may not want to deviate anyway...
