Our Preferred Luxury Hotels - Borgo Santo Pietro

Nestled amidst the breathtaking landscapes of Tuscany, Borgo Santo Pietro emerges as a beacon of timeless elegance and unparalleled beauty. Steeped in history and mysticism, this sacred land holds secrets that date back nearly 2500 years, woven into its very fabric. It was in 2001 that Jeanette and Claus Thottrup stumbled upon this hidden gem—a dilapidated ruin shrouded in the echoes of centuries past. Little did they realize that they were embarking on a journey that would transform not just the villa, but their lives forever.

For Jeanette and Claus, Borgo Santo Pietro was more than just a restoration project; it was a labor of love—a testament to their shared passion for beauty, heritage, and holistic living.

Over the course of seven years, Borgo Santo Pietro underwent a metamorphosis unlike any other. Stone by stone, the ancient ruin was meticulously restored, while nearly 300,000 plants were lovingly placed to create thirteen acres of garden paradise.
