Borgo Pignano is an elegant historical country estate in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, just a short drive from the historic, hilltop 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 a much cherished 750-acre organic estate and features a magnificent luxury 18th century villa and a hamlet first settled in during 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 a unique experience, steeped in history that captures the soul of Tuscany. Explore the organic farm, biodynamic kitchen gardens, olive groves, orchards, meadows, lakes, waterfalls and woodlands which can all be found within Pignano’s beautifully managed grounds.
Borgo Pignano’s main building is an 18th century villa surrounded by traditionally planted English gardens overlooking pristine landscapes of Tuscany that have changed little since Renaissance times. Perched on a hilltop, the villa accommodation offers stunning views of olive groves, vineyards, fields and woods.
There are fourteen elegant rooms and suites, some with original frescoes and all with en-suite marble and travertine bathrooms. A grand stone staircase leads to the upper stories and an elevator serves all floors of the villa. Wi-Fi is available throughout the estate.
La Canonica, the Priest’s house, adjoins the ancient church of San Bartolomeo and contains exceptional original features such as medieval stonework, archways, columns, vaulted ceilings, terracotta floors and restored medieval frescoes.
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. La Canonica can be used as one large three bedroomed house or independently divided as two separate suites. It’s also possible to stay in the estate's exclusive maisonettes and countryside cottages, which are within an easy walk of the main villa, restaurant, gardens and infinity pool. Each individual property is designed and decorated in an elegant Tuscan style offering privacy and seclusion.
