With sunlight bathing silvery olive groves and patchwork vineyards, few places on the globe are as romantic and relaxing as Tuscany.
And this intimate atmosphere is what prevails at Borgo Petrognano, an elegant estate hidden in the heart of Tuscany less than an hour from Florence, Siena and Pisa.
Dominating this luxury retreat is a medieval tower, undoubtedly a reminder of the ancient city of Semifonte destroyed in 1202 A. D. by Florence, its rival.
The elegantly restored tower, together with four other refurbished edifices on the estate, is waiting to accommodate guests on a timeless journey into the heart of Tuscan life.
Whether you find yourself sipping tea by the pool or indulging in a glass of Chianti wine at sunset in the tower, the majestic views and magical essence of times gone by is sure to embrace every guest visiting Borgo Petrognano.
The estate boasts of fourteen rooms and/or suites along with numerous common quarters. Each and every corner of the property has been carefully and elegantly refurbished. All rooms have a private bath endowed with modern fixtures and comforts.
A few ground floor rooms open onto private patios while a lovely suite is located in the tower. A charming double room equipped with wheelchair access and appropriate bathroom facilities is situated off the garden. Elegant furnishings, many being antiques from the estate itself, are found throughout the property.
The floors are covered in terracotta while the ceilings have characteristic wooden beams, thus emphasizing the natural harmony characteristic of Tuscany. The bathrooms, many with marble or Italian tile sinks, are spacious and airy.
There is wi-fi on the estate.
