Borgo Pignano is delighted to announce that it has been shortlisted in the Mr. & Mrs. Smith Hotel Awards 2018, in the Pool with a view category.
Borgo Pignano’s infinity pool is hard to match, is nestled on the slope of a hill beneath the villa, and provides expansive views of the Tuscan countryside. The pool was carved from an ancient limestone quarry, which supplied most of the stone used to build Porta dell’Arco, one of the principal gateways of Volterra as well as Pignano’s own buildings.
Borgo Pignano’s main building is an 18th century villa surrounded by traditionally planted English gardens overlooking pristine landscapes of Tuscany that have changed little since Renaissance times.
Perched on a hilltop, the villa accommodation 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.

These beautifully furnished rooms offer views of the forests and the English herb gardens. This accommodation offers luxury Tuscan style interiors and many feature original architectural details such as vaulted ceilings, sash windows, frescoes, antique furnishings and Italian linens.

SUITES WITH A VIEW
The Music Room is one of the villa’s largest rooms with high ceilings and gothic style windows overlooking the sweeping landscape. This spacious luxury suite features a four-poster bed and an en-suite frescoed bathroom with a bath illuminated by a skylight. The room has a private sitting area with comfortable couches, working fireplace and grand piano.
Our two signature suites offer total seclusion and have exceptional views of Tuscany. These suites have king or queen beds, a sitting room and capacious luxurious en-suite bathrooms with freestanding roll-top baths and glass enclosed showers. One suite features a ceiling with original period frescoes and a small balcony overlooking the lawned terrace.
This property dates from the 13th Century and provides an opportunity to stay in an architecturally significant building a few steps across the courtyard from the villa. La Canonica, the Priest’s house, adjoins the ancient church of San Bartolomeo and contains exceptional original features such as medieval stonework, archways, columns, vaulted ceilings, terracotta floors and restored medieval frescoes.
