The villa Borgo Santo Pietro is the result of the passionate project of its Danish owners, Claus and Jeanette Thottrup, always in love with Italy and the green hills of Maremma. The property is a villa of the thirteenth century, formerly used as a refuge for monks and travellers on pilgrimage that from England and across Europe were directed to Rome. The renovation has maintained the original characteristics of a country house built in stone and enriched with fine details. The grandeur of the building is harmonized by the surrounding gardens which stretch over 5 acres of parkland, where nothing is left to chance, because it has been carefully studied by the garden designer Valstad Helle in collaboration with Jeanette. This has been in fact divided into sections by following the Italian gardens style. Particularly fascinating are the beautiful rose garden in front of the rooms, the avenue of cypresses that winds around the park and the section in which herbs and biological products are grown. The owners of the hotel, inspired by the new concept of hospitality, are used to pamper their guests with care and sympathy. The high quality service of the hotel Borgo Santo Pietro is strictly personalised, and gives the traveller the feeling of familiar atmosphere. It is the ideal place for a romantic holiday and a place where it is easy to experience the ties with Mother Earth.
