On its own, Borgo Santo Pietro is a travel experience not to be missed. And for intimate weddings and events, we believe it’s simply incomparable. Read on to discover our favorite details about this 13th century Italian villa restored into a modern Tuscany sanctuary for weddings, events, honeymoons and other luxury travel experiences.
Over 300 acres of this historic Tuscan villa just outside of Florence and Siena have been restored into a luxury boutique resort with sprawling gardens, a holistic spa, 22 individually styled rooms + suites and organically cultivated farm to table experience.
Couples who want to immerse their guests in the best the region has to offer without compromising the warm and attentive white glove service they’re accustomed to should have Borgo Santo Pietro on their shortlist of Tuscan wedding venues.
The landscapes surrounding the property alone are enough to take your breath away, but paired with the deluxe villas curated with antique furnishings, working fireplaces, inspiring paintings and rich textiles (several with their own private gardens, courtyards and pools), it’s impossible to deny the sheer magnitude of opportunity Borgo Santo Pietro offers. Not only for guest accommodations and idyllic aesthetics that are strong on their own, but for the guest experience from check-in to party time to post-wedding lounging by the pool.
When considering a venue that will make your guests feel held every step of the way, envisioning the overall guest experience is paramount. And boy, does Borgo Santo Pietro excel here. The team regularly hosts activities on and off site to immerse guests in the Tuscan way of life - al fresco concerts by the vines, movie nights beneath a canopied trellis, cooking classes with the local mamma, wine tastings with a personal sommelier, sunrise outings to the forest gym, Fiat 500 or Vespa tours across rolling Tuscan hills peppered with cypress trees, organic honey tastings + sheep-cheese demonstrations, flower arranging classes, bocce games before dinner in the garden, hot air balloon rides over medieval villages nearby… we could go on!
This classic luxe Tuscany villa offers a stunning and well-equipped canvas from which to host your event, and we’d highly recommend this “best kept secret” in the Tuscany countryside for guest counts of 118 or less.

Situated in the heart of Tuscany, Borgo Santo Pietro sits only a few miles away from the ethereal ruins of Sal Galgano Abbey and the round church of Montesiepi which houses the famous “sword in the stone.” The resort can pre-arrange car hire for you upon request, and we’d recommend taking advantage as the closest airport is Florence Peretola (about an hour and 40 minutes away). The medieval village of Siena is only 35 minutes from the resort, so train travel from Florence or Pisa is a possibility as well.
