Indeed, views of the lush surrounding valley are showcased throughout the Borgo Santo Pietro. Expect vistas of pretty vineyard terraces whether you’re enjoying a spa treatment in the garden or relaxing in your exclusive suite. And, each of the 20 rooms is blessed with antiques, hand-painted frescoes and courtyards that host everything from private pools to hidden gardens.
As with any trip to Tuscany, the dining is a special highlight, with the Michelin-starred Meo Modo a definite favourite. Here, tasting menus showcase the very best of the estate’s ingredients, while its accompanying Sull’Albero Trattori offers more casual fare. Think hand-spun pizzas served up to views over the infinity pool and valley. It’s all overseen by one of the region’s most exciting young chefs – Andrea Mattei.
There’s also plenty of the unique, whether that’s a picnic Vespa ride, a charcuterie board taken in the gardens or a cooking lesson from the Borgo’s award-winning chefs. You can even join the resident truffle hunter to forage for these most Tuscan of delicacies.
