Borgo Pignano is an elegant country estate in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, just a short drive from the historic, hill 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 center of 750-acres of much cherished organic farmland and features a luxurious 18th century villa and a hamlet first settled in Etruscan times. 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 an experience, steeped in the soul of Tuscany.
The farm produces olives, cereals and grains which play an important part in our quest for self-sufficiency. Pignano produces its own range of organic flours (used to make artisanal bread and pizza in traditional wood-burning ovens), pastas, and honey.
We also produce free-range eggs, fruits, nuts, seeds and cold pressed Tuscan olive oil as well as feed for the estate’s chickens, pigs and horses.

This property dates from the 13th Century and provides an opportunity to stay in an architecturally significant building a few steps across the courtyard from the villa.
