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
First of all insert coordinates into GPS as ours had us stopping at the farmer down the road 😆
Truly beautiful grounds, very well maintained. Being from the Southern Hemisphere, some botanic labels on the trees would be nice as we are unfamiliar with most of the trees here, except the Cyprus of course.
The buildings are beautiful with the creeping vines, olives and potted citrus. The pool and facilities are superb as is the food and service. The wait staff were wonderful. Breakfast was indulgent.
The rooms were kept immaculately, not a speck of dust to be found, very good housekeeping.
A wonderful base for day trips to San Gimignano, Volterra, Monteriggioni, Siena, even Pisa. It was lovely to come back and chill out by the pool with a cocktail after a full day of sightseeing.
Only negative was our room could be an adjoining room so noise from next door was evident, but not problematic.
They have a great photographer ! Other than that not much was great. Rooms ok. All a bit tired and old. Not too clean. Breakfast not the best. Basically self service. Big old dirty juicer no nice fresh fruit. Eggs basic. Staff generally unhelpful. Lovely area around hotel. Gardens gorgeous. Enormous pool. Big impersonal hotel
Loved this hotel and the countryside. Lovely escape after 3 days in Rome. Will definitely return . Close to Siena and San Gimignano. Excellent food, service, cleanliness, and grounds ! Breakfast buffet was included and the selection was outstanding...fresh juice, omelettes, meats, cheese, pastry.
This is a lovely hotel. The grounds are beautiful and there is an excellent restaurant, the food is really good. In the lounge there is a fire which is so lovely to have pre or after dinner drinks around the fire. There is also a fire pit outside and a wonderful swimming pool. The rooms that have been refurbished are nice but there are still quite a few that need a face lift.
There is a football pitch, tennis court and lots of space to run around. It is a dog friendly hotel and my children had a great time over Easter playing with other children.
I highly recommend it.
The only thing I would say is that the bed was so hard that I did not sleep well at all.
2nd visit and still highly recommanded.
Staff is professional, friendly, charming and multilangual.
Lovely garden, large secured parking (electrical car pump available).
Recommand you to stay in Bed and Breakfast and have some dinners in the hotel too.
Food and drinks are not overprized.
Half board offers a 4 course meal. Good price as we paid only 25 eur per person for this. We did not order 4 courses because we were stuffed after 2 or 3 courses.
A 2-level room is very nice with children. Parents and children have their privacy.
Excellent location to visit Toscany.
