Our Story

Borgo Santo Pietro was born from our personal dream, a home for our family.

We stumbled across Borgo's dilapidated ruins in 2001, then nothing more than a crumbling hamlet amidst fields of mud, and set about planning its restoration to bring the hamlet back to life. 

Feeling it needed to be shared, we embarked upon the long and ever-evolving journey to create an intimate boutique-style hotel, and have spent years lovingly reinstating Borgo's long-forgotten noble splendor, when it was a healing retreat for pilgrims to rest and recuperate.

Our vision for the gardens and fields surrounding the villa involved elaborate landscaping and the intensive planting of more than 300,000 plants, however the calming and recuperative power of the place inspired us onwards.

To restore the estate to its former glory, local craftsmen worked with artisans from around the world. 
With plants, furniture and architectural details sourced throughout Italy and Europe together with years of dedication, Borgo Santo Pietro has flourished into the elegant and welcoming place we dreamed it would be.

Borgo is still evolving, and with it our passion to ensure that guests experience a home away from home.
