Fortunately, this secret haven is tucked away in the Tuscan countryside, difficult to find yet worth the journey. A real hidden gem! The reveal as you arrive is fabulous and it just gets better and better. Camilla and her team are amazing and are filled with passion for everything Pignano and the environment. The views are breath taking and the rooms stunning, this is a place to relax and enjoy, the culture here is wonderful and the organically farmed own produce or sourced produce make for wonderful food and drink. Clearly this is a result of a vast amount of love being introduced in the kitchens.
Anthony the head chef changes the menus daily and will always tailor to suit your specific tastes, he really goes the extra mile and is typical mod Michelin Starred restaurants.
My fiancee said it was the best nights sleep she had ever had and we left so relaxed, next time we will go biking, horse riding, walking and possibly get involved with the pottery, yoga and painting….. there is just so much to consider doing….if you want to.
Thank you Pignano, we will be back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Borgo Pignano is a charming private Tuscan estate on 750 acres of secluded and unspoiled fields, hills, woods and gardens near Volterra and San Gimignano, in the province if Pisa, between Florence and Siena. Pignano’s main building is an eighteenth century villa, surrounded by English gardens, with pristine landscapes that are unchanged from Renaissance times. To the west, a series of hills unfolds towards the sea; to the east, woods and gardens are alive with the song of birds. There are 14 elegantly furnished rooms and suites, some with their original frescos and all with white marble or travertine bathrooms and spectacular views. An elevator serves every floor save the cellar. There are generous public rooms and dining areas and WI-FI is available throughout the villa. On top of the Villa, it is always possible to lodge at the Podere La Fonte, Casa del Lago, the Artists’ house or to rent one of the Borgo’s apartments. The public rooms of the villa include a two-storey ballroom with a terrazzo floor and a balcony; a large library with a fireplace flanked by comfortable sofas; a music room with an antique Bechstein grand; a banquet room in a two hundred year old kitchen, a smaller dining room, a television room, a billiards room, a children’s activity room, a small gym, and a yoga and meditation room. The infinity swimming pool was carved from a limestone quarry on the slope of a hill directly beneath the villa. There is an adjacent outdoor bar and an outdoor shower. Borgo Pignano’s chefs prepare three healthy, authentic Tuscan meals every day, using the freshest local and organic ingredients, which vary by season. Bread, croissants, pizza, and biscotti are baked in our wood- burning oven. Vegetables, oil, grains, honey, and fruit come directly from the property, or from neighboring organic and biodynamic farms. We pay particular attention to the special dietary needs of our guests for vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, or anti-allergenic menus. ... more less
