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
My wife and I have recently returned from a five night stay . This is a beautiful place with very good facilities and lovely food. Our suite with terrace met our expectations and was spotlessly clean. Service at dinner was excellent (I particularly single out the restaurant manager and Francisco). I would have given a five star rating were it not for one or two niggles - eg delay in getting a table for dinner; inadequate provision of in room tea and coffee. However, overall I would certainly recommend.
My boyfriend and I have adored this hotel. It is the perfect getaway with the possibility to visit Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, Lucca, Assisi (1.5h) and many more (by car!) with the possibility to relax in a quiet and beautifully Tuscan environment. The restaurant La Bianca serves delicious food and they provide a very personal service. The rooms are beautiful, cosy and spacious. ❤️
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.
