Borgo Santo Pietro has unveiled its newly-refurbished Santo Pietro Grand Suite, now ready to provide guests a quintessentially Tuscan experience.
Jeanette Thottrup, the owner of the luxury hotel, is responsible for the interior design of all the rooms at the property and she explains that “nature is at the heart of everything at Borgo Santo Pietro; the new colour scheme of dusty blues reflects the expansive blue of the Tuscan skies and the Mediterranean sea”. The theme can be seen throughout the suite.
“The Santo Pietro Suite has a special place in our heart as it is in the main villa where everything started over 13 years ago,” said Thottrup. “The space, the location and the terrace with the incredible view on Tuscan hills is unbeatable for me: it reminds me why I felt in love with the estate.”
Presiding over the full south wing of the thirteenth-century main villa on the estate, in the centre of the separate bedroom is a monumental four-poster bed with a new, bespoke headboard and bed-crown both of which have been handcrafted by a local Florentine artist. A new fireplace has been created as the focal point of the living area and replicas of historic tapestry fabrics have been used to upholster the chairs further enhancing the feeling of grandeur. Up stone carved steps you can find a mezzanine with a walk-in wardrobe and a cozy seating area.
The new terrace – over 80 square metres – has a direct view over the fields and vineyards of Valle Serena. It is surrounded by bay-leaf hedges to create total privacy and features a comfortable sofa, an outdoor dining area, as well as a large four poster bed and a new fireplace.
Thottrup concludes: “Santo Pietro Suite has been always loved by the guests for its style and for the internal space: the living room and the spacious bedroom and of course the en-suite bathroom with the free standing bathtub. I wanted to focus the attention on the view and make sure that all our guests enjoy the beauty of Tuscany to the fullest. The view from the terrace was always special and with the new outdoor space they can actually enjoy it even more.”
An overnight stay in the Santo Pietro Suite, including breakfast and one gourmet dinner served in the room (excluding beverages) is priced from €2,700. Bookings open for the suite on 1 April 2020, according to Borgo Santo Pietro’s website.
