We touched down in Pisa and set off through the sprawling green Tuscan countryside, already in awe of its breath-taking beauty. Our first stop was a bucket list moment for us, the inimitable Borgo Santo Pietro, a hotel we’d been dreaming of visiting for years. The entrance was nothing short of mesmerising, we were immediately taken back by its majestic tree lined driveway. What a welcome.
Owned by Jeanette and Claus Thottrup, Borgo Santo Pietro is an exquisite boutique hotel in a lovingly converted 13th century villa in the heart of the Tuscan countryside. The design and attention to detail is spot on, with each element tailored towards relaxation and romance — elegant and opulent, but understated and comforting, it truly feels like home.
True to its reputation for excellence, the food at Borgo Santo Pietro is also exceptional. Breakfast is served in the open-plan kitchen beside a crackling fire, and at Michelin Star Meo Modo, chef Giovanni Di Giorgio serves up an earth to plate experience, inspired by the estate harvested produce. An incredible 90% of the hotel’s produce is grown on site or sourced from local farms.
