Best time to Visit
Good time to visit
Average time to visit
The Mediterranean climate makes Tuscany a year round destination. It is important to remember that the main tourism season stretches from mid-April to the end of September with July and August being peak months. The best time to visit Tuscany is in the quieter part of the season, from April to June and from September to October when weather is usually good, prices lower and there are "fewer" tourists. Many have also discovered the advantages of visiting during the "low season" (late autumn and early spring) as the reduced number of tourists is visible.

Surrounded by 13 acres of gardens this hotel really offers seclusion and relaxation in the most enchanting setting.

James Ferguson (Staff)
I was really impressed by Borgo Santo Pietro: I thought it was a lovely property in a beautiful setting. The rooms are beautiful and the service top-notch.
The dcor was perfect I thought, in keeping with the rustic Tuscan style but not too traditional and old-fashioned looking. I would definitely recommend the new 'garden suites' - they are located just a few steps away from the main building and offer beautiful private gardens. Ideal for a laid-back alfresco breakfast, which the hotel is happy to bring to your garden at no additional charge should you prefer not to get dressed and amble over to the breakfast room in the main building.
Room amenities are beautifully presented and the bathrooms spacious and well-appointed.
All the staff I met at Borgo Santo Pietro, from the reception staff to the waiters and friendly sommelier, seemed very proud to be working at Borgo Pietro and offered exemplary service with a smile. The food was delicious and all, as you would expect, based on the freshest local produce whether you are dining at the fine dining restaurant or enjoying the more informal atmosphere of a laid back lunch by the pool.
With its extensive and beautifully maintained gardens and grounds, Borgo Santo Pietro is an idyllic country retreat.
