    Our opinion

    Borgo Pignano is a wonderful hotel set within an exquisite country estate in the heart of the Tuscan countryside.

    Hotel description

    Borgo Pignano is an elegant retreat set amidst the Tuscan countryside, ideally positioned near the historic towns of Volterra and San Gimignano and the medieval cities of Florence and Siena. The 750 acre estate of Pignano is the site of a hamlet that dates back to the Etruscan times, and a magnificent 18th Century villa. This beautifully restored property offers warm and gracious hospitality in a tranquil natural environment with far reaching views of rolling hills, olive groves, and woods. At Borgo Pignano you can enjoy an authentic Tuscan experience in a breath-taking rural environment. There are 16 rooms and suites in the villa which are all elegantly decorated, some with original frescoes that add to the historic ambience. An elevator serves all floors, while communal areas are designed to enhance the feeling of a country house and offer spaces in which guests can relax, including a library, billiards room, music room, TV room and ballroom. As well as accommodation options in the main villa, the estate also offers private maisonettes, cottages and a lakeside farmhouse where the addition of kitchen facilities give guests independence. The Villa Pignano restaurant is set in the villa’s 200 year-old kitchen and proudly presents authentic Tuscan dishes and produce grown in its own organic garden. There is plenty to occupy guests at Borgo Pignano, from wandering around the vast parkland and horse-riding with the onsite instructor to simply relaxing by the hotel’s outdoor infinity pool. For those who wish to enjoy some of Italy's cultural experiences, a number of classes teaching skills such as painting and cookery are available, as are tours to the prosperous nearby wine regions. For families, the hotel can arrange a number of activities to delight children, from pizza-making classes to exciting trails through the grounds. Borgo Pignano is a fantastic hotel set in stunning grounds that caters to all guests and all requirements, thanks to the variety of accommodation options and leisure activities that are available.
