Borgo Pignano is an elegant, award-winning retreat in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, near the historic towns of Volterra and San Gimignano and the medieval cities of Florence and Siena.

At the heart of this 750-acre organic estate is a hamlet that dates back to Etruscan times and a magnificent 18th century villa. Today this beautifully restored country estate offers warm and gracious hospitality in a tranquil setting with luminous views that can extend to the Mediterranean, seventy miles away. At Borgo Pignano you can enjoy an authentic Tuscan experience surrounded by an organic farm, biodynamic kitchen gardens, olive groves, horse pastures, orchards, meadows, lakes, waterfalls and ancient forests. The living connection between inside and out can be experienced throughout the Pignano estate.  Flowers from the gardens are everywhere in the villa, farmhouses and apartments.

Spring is the most breath-taking period in which to discover Tuscany when the hills and valleys enter a stage of almost constant change. The region attracts many artists and the unspoilt countryside provides the perfect subject for photographers and painters.  From April onwards banks of scarlet poppies appear in abundant sweeps, whilst hedgerows reveal the striking azure blue of the Florentine iris amidst the aromatic wild herbs.

Tender young vegetables also find their way from garden to plate. Sample baby artichokes, pencil thin zucchini and youthful salad leaves, all indulgently adorned with the finest organic olive oil.exterior-borgo-pignano

In the local towns and villages, tables and chairs return to the piazzas where cafes, bars and restaurants offer cappuccini, aperitivi and seasonal al-fresco lunches. Spring really is the perfect season in which to immerse yourself in the local culture. Visit Tuscany in the Spring and enjoy an authentic taste of Toscana, before the main tourist season commences.

Borgo Pignano seasonal menus are based on biodynamic vegetables and fruits harvested at their finest. In winter, open fireplaces crackle and blaze with timber harvested from the borgo’s woodlands. Their central building is an 18th century villa, bordered by traditionally planted English gardens overlooking pristine landscapes of Tuscany, unchanged since Renaissance times. Pignano has exclusive maisonettes and cottages that are an easy walk from the main villa, restaurant, gardens and infinity pool.
