Found in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, Borgo Santo Pietro is a 5-star boutique hotel and estate, encompassing Michelin-starred restaurants, a holistic spa, organic skincare range Seed to Skin, commercial property design and construction PN Homes, bespoke yacht Satori, and the extensive working farm it calls home.
Relais Borgo Santo Pietro was once a healing stopover for medieval pilgrims. Today it continues to provide a sanctuary for modern souls, merging a 5 star luxury hotel and spa concept with a 'farm to plate' philosophy on a 270-acre estate.
A sumptuous feeling of home pervades the 800-year-old luxury farmhouse hotel, with its worn leather armchairs pulled up around open fires, fresh flower arrangements picked straight from the garden, and weathered brick wine cellar lined with boutique labels. Each of the boutique hotel's 20 rooms has been singularly designed down to the utmost thoughtful detail, with custom-sought antique pieces, bespoke beds and frescoes executed by hand.
A philosophy of nurture via nature and a spirit of collaboration are tangibly felt at Borgo Santo Pietro, where a teamwork of farmers, culinary gardeners and chefs work together to bring the fruits of organic cultivation to the table.
Borgo's 270-acre organically cultivated estate includes market gardens, nut fields, herb gardens, extensive vineyards and forests, some of which house the estate's drove of pigs. Each day the farmers collect milk from Borgo's sheep which is then transformed into artisan cheese and yogurt at the on-site dairy. The farm includes free-range chickens, honey bees, alpacas and extensive vineyards and supplies both the inspiration and ingredients for its two Michelin-starred restaurants, Meo Modo and La Bottega del Buon Caffè, as well as Trattoria Sull’Albero. The freshwater River Merse, famous throughout the region, runs through the outskirts of the estate.
