Though the rooms are a bit old, the staff and property make up for it. The pool and property are absolutely beautiful and so relaxing. Just a short drive to Cortona but if you don't want to drive ask at the hotel and they can call a car for a small price. The entire vacation was relaxing and great. I... More

The location of this mini resort style hotel is about 30 minutes from Siena and further from Florence. You may also find your self an hour away or so from your newly discovered favorite wineries. However, what this place lacks in location it exceeds in a feeling of solitude. If you simply decide to stay on the grounds all day... More

The hotel is set in lovely grounds with a good pool and excellent views of the surrounding countryside uo to Cortona on the hills above it. They provided evening meals and some lunches depending upon what we did. Overall the Hotel... More

This was our second time at Relais Borgo San Pietro, having stayed there a year before. It was like coming home with the warm welcome we received from the wonderful staff.

We stayed at the Borgo San Pietro in mid August having read the many many positive reviews. We too enjoyed staying at the San Pietro, where the staff are indeed very welcoming and helpful but felt we needed to add some caveats: As our review illustrate, we stay in hotels across Europe. Our experience of booking superior rooms is that... More

It's easy to explain why our family and friends keep coming back. This place starts with an authentic and original Tuscan experience from beginning to end. Apart from a great location in its own grounds surrounded by an olive grove and fruit trees the rooms are comfortable and charming with antique furniture. The pool is clean and inviting. Excellent wifi... More

Having visited in 2013 we were looking forward to returning to this Relais. We were not disappointed in the slightest.

After a thorough search of every hotel resembling a castle in the Tuscan radius, (there are thousands) we chose this one and it was the right pick. LOCATION: Off the beaten path, yet still convenient to Cortona, which is a cool medieval town. Beautiful views and varied landscape. GROUNDS: Gorgeous, private, and clean. GREAT place for staying under radar. Not... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Relais Borgo San Pietro is an ancient XVII century farm transformed into a charming Relais with outdoor swimming pool composed of 14 rooms and 5 apartments. Thanks to an intelligent restoration the new purpose of the structure took into account yet maintaining its ancient look. The old well, the fruit and olive trees, the grass fields, combined with the old prints, paintings and furniture, give that peaceful feeling and atmosphere of a Tuscan country house. ... more   less
