Tenuta Santo Pietro belongs to a younger Italian American family who are putting their heart and soul into establishing the business. They’ve done a great job. The place is beautiful. Simply beautiful both inside and out. We loved the interior decoration and the grounds were immaculate. In spring, it wasn’t quite warm enough to jump in the pool but on a summer’s day it would be perfect.
Tenuta Santo Pietro have a great team working there. Everyone clearly took a lot of pride in their job. The in-house meals were fabulous and we looked forward to breakfast each morning. A top class effort by the team working there.
I’m not sure that I would, hand-on-heart , recommend Tenuta Santo Pietro for a honeymooning couple looking for a quiet break. It describes itself as a “tranquil oasis” in Tuscany but this wasn't our experience. We may have picked an unlucky week but we were woken up a couple of times by other guests using the kitchen (which basically backed straight onto our bedroom) and kept awake by a large group that had come to the restaurant (not guests at the property) for a late meal and singing. Another day we returned from our day’s outing early as we wanted to chill out for the afternoon, only to find the restaurant had been hired by a very large group (looked like a huge family celebration) and after lunch they then hung out around in the grounds and pool area. If you are desperate for a quiet, tranquil break, perhaps check first what else is planned during your visit.
The team there were generous, kind & lovely people. Everyone was very approachable, helpful and humoured us with our Italian. We enjoyed everyones' company and would happily welcome any of them into our home for a meal.
The food nothing short of exceptional, the buildings are gorgeous and the grounds and outlook are stunning.
