You don’t need to be a native Italian speaker to understand Borgo San Luigi’s charm. With its ancient trees, historic buildings and extensive gardens, this Tuscan four-star hotel needs no explanation. Whether you’re touring around the enchanting countryside or simply getting some R&R on the property, you’re sure to embrace the Tuscan way of life. As you watch the sun set over the rolling hills – perhaps with a glass of local red in hand – it’ll be clear why this is the most raved-about region of Italy.
Natural beauty isn’t the only thing you’ll savor here; staying true to the structure’s original 17th-century character, this lovely country estate is full of traditional features, including terra-cotta floors and antique furniture. Of course, there’s also the world-famous cuisine – you’ll find culinary traditions and produce from the surrounding landscape served up al fresco in the warmer months. To experience more of the region’s treasures, spend a day in Siena or Florence, or stop by a local winery for an authentic tasting.
Rooms and suites
As you’d expect from a 17th-century estate, the rooms and suites offer plenty of local character. You’ll find antique fabrics, terra-cotta floors and handcrafted furnishings. Deluxe rooms provide 170-190 square feet of space, while the Junior suites offer 215-260 square feet for you to stretch out in.
The two restaurants and popular bar at Borgo San Luigi look to the Sienese landscape and culinary traditions to shape their menus. Fresh local produce joins gluten-free and vegetarian dishes to accommodate almost any taste.
Borgo San Luigi offers a stunning base for your Tuscan stay. Just 15 minutes away, you can explore the incredible, charming commune of Monteriggioni, with its medieval walls and 13th-century church. You can also take the 30-minute drive to visit Siena, with its historic city center – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you’re in the mood for a day trip, Florence shouldn’t be missed; just an hour’s drive away, this city – the birthplace of the Renaissance – is filled with some of the most impressive art and architecture found anywhere in the world.
How to Get There
This place was recommended by a close friend. Stayed here 3 nights in late April. The resort is an old Tuscan village that has been remade into a collection of hotel rooms with modern amenities, beautiful park-like grounds, a nice pool area and an excellent restaurant. Centrally located for exploring Tuscany by car. Staff very friendly and helpful. Located in a quiet area but not far from highways. Our air conditioned room was beautifully Tuscan in style with a modern and newly renovated bathroom. Highly recommended for a relaxing holiday.
This is a fantastic hotel with wonderful facilities and a truly beautiful setting. The staff could not have been more accommodating of our sometimes difficult toddler and the service generally was first class. We were able to have a sophisticated and relaxing trip in an environment which still welcomes kids. Indeed, the atmosphere around the pool is really family friendly whilst there being plenty of space for grown ups who want to find a quiet spot. Proper 5 star hotel experience whilst maintaining the feel of an Italian villa style trip.
We started here on an Insight tour in June. The cottage we were in was charming. The interior was very basic, a bit dark, and furnishings were old and beat up, but the grounds, pool and restaurant more than made up for it! The pool is enormous and clean. The restaurant we enjoyed buffet breakfast, lunch pool side, and a sit down dinner. We enjoyed all the and the wine was great! We had excellent service for drinks while enjoying the expensive yard. Only wish we could've stayed longer. Also, be aware, it is far from really anything, so make sure transportation is not an issue.
