“2nd time this year”
Reviewed 21 September 2012

The Relais Borgo San Pietro has come to be like a 2nd home to me. The staff is superb, friendly, helpful and fun. This time we stayed in a superior room as last time in May I stayed in an apartment. The rooms were beautiful, in the old original Tuscan style, well appointed, clean and up-to-date in a several hundred-year-old renovated farmhouse. The pool is always nice, refreshing and peaceful, for the most part. The gardens are heavenly. In May the roses bloomed, in September the apples were ripe. You get a real sense of countryside as you hear cows mooing in the distance, along with roosters proclaiming their territory. Sometimes you may even hear the foxes at night...
One thing I don't get: this really is not a party hotel. If you want to be loud, celebratory, and annoying, go to Ibiza or somewhere else. This is in the middle of the Tuscan countryside, where many seek some solace and quiet, to read a good book by the pool, to stroll the gardens, away from everyday cell phones and hectic paces. Please do not book this hotel if you are looking to blast your radio, partying all night, and taking over the pool by day. Not enjoyable for the rest of us. You just become annoying in this pastoral scene.

We stayed at this Relais for 4 nights and had a really great time. The hotel is located about 5mins at the foot of the hill where the town of cortona is. It is a bit hidden and not easy to find the first time you arrive here. The atmosphere is really quiet and peaceful. The staff really is attentive and helpful. The room was big, clean and the pool area was in a very good shape too.
If you want to find something to criticise it could only be the breakfast which is the same small buffet every day.

The only thing I didn't like about the place was the rules for the swimming pool and BBQ area. If you want a BBQ you have to have a fireman present which I think is stupid. Also there is no jumping in the pool and you are not to take towels from your room to the pool.

We stayed only one night, but had a wonderful expirience. We were greeted in front of the hotel by the concierge. The rooms were very clean,the staff very attentive. Did not have a chance to see much of the grounds, but the pool area was very clean and quiet. Would highly recommend this hotel

When I try to hold back to a dream about a quit hotel surrounded with green fields and vineyards, this is the place!!! 2 minutes of driving from the main road and you are there. A Classic hotel which have everything for couple can relax and enjoy. Nice rooms, swimming pool and surroundings.

Room Tip: When going down the main road, follow the signs carefully!

We stayed for two nights in this charming establishment. The staff was across the board professional, helpful and personable. The hotel is a little hard to find, off the main road and at the end of an unpaved drive. The grounds are well kept, and you truly feel like you are staying in a Tuscan villa. All of the conveniences of town are close by. Breakfast in the morning was great. The food itself is OK, but in nice weather one dines al fresco in the lovely space behind the main house. Note that this hotel is a 5-10 minute drive from Cortona. Cortona itself is on a large hill, while the hotel is located in the flat area below. Parking in Cortona itself is plentiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would come back.
