Borgo Pignano is an elegant historical country estate in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, just a short drive from the historic, hilltop towns of Volterra and San Gimignano and within easy reach of the medieval cities of Florence and Siena and the vineyards of Chianti.

Borgo Pignano sits in the centre of a much cherished 750-acre organic estate and features a magnificent luxury 18th century villa. You will find fourteen elegant rooms and suites within the main Villa, some with original frescoes and furnished with exquisite antiques, original artworks, Italian linens, chandeliers and en-suite white marble and travertine bathrooms. There are also exclusive maisonettes and countryside cottages (each individual property offers privacy and seclusion).

Today, this sensitively restored and privately owned Borgo, offers warm and gracious hospitality in a tranquil setting about 500 meters above sea level, with some of the most commanding views in all of Tuscany that can stretch to the Mediterranean. Borgo Pignano provides a unique experience, steeped in history that captures the soul of Tuscany.

Explore the organic farm, biodynamic kitchen gardens, olive groves, orchards, meadows, lakes, waterfalls and woodlands which can all be found within Pignano’s beautifully managed grounds.

The dining experience at Borgo Pignano is filled with a sense of natural abundance and wellbeing. The gastronomic restaurant Villa Pignano proposes a refined and innovative menu with ingredients gathered from the estate’s vegetable garden and organic farm. The fabulous food is further complimented with an exquisite selection of organic and biodynamic wines from Tuscany.

Such a glamorous estate needs a glamorous spa and Borgo Pignano has opened a beautiful, new Spa and Wellness retreat. Each of the hotel’s natural spa treatments and wellbeing therapies have been created using organic ingredients grown on the estate. Enjoy the dry sauna and steam bath or book a treatment in the private wellness suites.

Visitors at Borgo Pignano are spoilt for choice when it comes to experiencing their surroundings. Some guests are just seduced by the serenity of the estate and do not wander far: they swim in the infinity pool, soak up the sun, paint, read and draw or stroll among the orchards, gardens and woodland paths.

Others practice a collection of authentic Tuscan inspired activities such as cooking classes, farm tours, honey-making, truffle hunting, painting classes and wine tasting, along with yoga, mountain biking and horse-riding. Borgo Pignano often plays host to groups of enthusiastic cyclists who enjoy the rigor of 30 to 120 km rides along Tuscany’s winding country roads. Runners and hikers can test their mettle on the paths and roads surrounding the Borgo.
