About Us

Borgo Pignano is an elegant historical country estate in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, just a short drive from the historic, hill 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 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 an experience, steeped in the soul of Tuscany.

Discover also Maisonettes & Cottages

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.

14 elegantly furnished rooms and suites, some with their original frescos with spectacular views.

Experiences

Cuisine

Spa

Borgo Pignano is delighted to announce the opening of our new Spa and Wellness Area!

Weddings

Pignano offers a heart-stopping location for weddings and honeymoons.

Best of the Best

The ethos at Borgo Pignano is a simple one: “Everything comes from the land.” That motto emanates from every organic corner of the 750-acre Tuscan estate. A resident beekeeper supplies fresh honey for your morning cornetto (made with flour produced on-site). Pignano’s soapmaker plucks aromatic plants to create guest bath products. Spa therapists use ingredients bottled by the estate’s herbalist. Overseeing it all is an elegant 18th-century villa, its 16 rooms adorned with antique furnishings, original frescoes and artworks from the owner’s collection. Horse-riding excursions allow guests to experience Tuscany from the saddle.

Hotel Tip

Pignano invites guests to release their inner artists with a supply of paints and drawing pencils. Culinary enthusiasts can show their own artistry in a cooking class.

Incredible. This is the most beautiful property I've ever seen, with the most gracious staff imaginable. The setting is spectacular - 500 acres in the Tuscan countryside- but the Borgo is even more spectacular. Every room is lavish, unique, and full of special details. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Borgo Pignano was better than the place we had dreamed in our minds for an ideal family vacation. It was a perfect mix of relax and adventure, of sophistication and ease. We hope to return again and again.
