Borgo Pignano
Tuscany, Italy

The estate

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.

Steeped in the soul of Tuscany

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.

The Rooms

Borgo Pignano offers a range of upmarket accommodation to suit all level of guest.

Borgo Pignano’s main building is an 18th century villa surrounded by traditionally planted English gardens overlooking the pristine landscapes of Tuscany that have changed little since Renaissance times. Perched on a hilltop, the villa offers stunning views of olive groves, vineyards, fields and woods. There are sixteen 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.

Borgo Pignano also offers exclusive maisonettes and villas within an easy walk of the main villa, restaurant, gardens and infinity pool. Each is private and secluded and all are designed and decorated in an elegant Tuscan style.

Two of their luxury villas offer heated private pool and stunning terraces and verandas with spectacular views to the Tuscan countryside.


Borgo Pignano recently inaugurated a wellness centre in the heart of their historic hamlet for guests to experience another level of peace and tranquillity, either enjoying the dry sauna and steam bath or booking a treatment in the private wellness suites.

Private to the guests of the hotel, the spa harmoniously combines elements of Pignano’s wellbeing philosophy which includes history, nature, health and relaxation, all set within beautifully restored Fourteenth Century walls.


Visitors at Borgo Pignano have plenty of choices. Some guests are just seduced by the serenity of the estate and do not wander far: they swim in the infinity pool, soak up the sun, paint, read and draw or stroll among the orchards, gardens and woodland paths.

Others practice yoga, or go horse riding or mountain biking. Borgo Pignano often plays host to groups of enthusiastic cyclists who enjoy the rigor of 30 to 120 km rides along Tuscany’s winding country roads. Runners and hikers can test their mettle on the paths and roads surrounding the Borgo.

Borgo Pignano is the perfect paradise for food lovers, offering a wide range of gastronomic experiences including cooking classes, wine tastings, cocktail making classes, truffle hunting, or even horse back riding with pic nic in the woods with the delicacies from the estate.

The estate owners are long time admirers of twentieth century British art and have selected all the art displayed in the villa, maisonettes and suites.
