Relais Borgo San Pietro - 4 stars - Cortona, Tuscany

Read guests' feedback on this holiday by clicking here.


Relais Borgo San Pietro ticked all of our boxes when we were looking for a new hotel for our painting holiday in Tuscany.  Small, stylish, owner managed, very clean with modern facilities, friendly professional staff in a beautiful, typically Italian setting.  Relais Borgo San Pietro has 14 stylishly furnished double rooms with modern facilities created within a 17th century, former farmhouse.  Many original features have been retained such as the well, flagstone flooring etc.  All rooms have private bathrooms, air conditioning, heating, minibar and satellite TV.   The hotel has a 16 metre swimming pool, a gymnasium and 7 hectares of private parkland.  It is a haven of peace and tranquility with panoramic views up the hill to the historic town of Cortona.  Dinner guests sitting in the conservatory, which can be totally opened up in good weather, have a wonderful view of Cortona sparkling on the hill at night.  The Etruscan town of Cortona is just 4 km away.  Cortona has been made popular more recently by the book and film "Under the Tuscan Sun".  This has brought many tourists to the town and lots of stylish shops, bars and restaurants have opened in response.  There are many historic places to visit in the town including the famous Etruscan museum, many ancient churches with wonderful frescos and Le Celle which was the home of St. Francis of Assisi.  The old winding streets offer the chance to explore and also provide many painting/photographic opportunities.
