Relax and recharge at Borgo Santo Pietro
“How often do we give ourselves the time to stop and rest? To become still and connect with our higher selves?” Jeanette asks me over lunch at Trattoria Sull’Albero. Good question. And in my case, not often enough.
“At Borgo, we aim to give guests an experience of themselves,” she explains. “To recharge, refresh and hopefully return home with new perspectives.”
Borgo has around 30% repeat guests, so clearly Jeanette’s vision is working. “I’m not really a hotelier,” she confides. “More than anything I want to touch peoples’ lives and make a difference. Which is why I’m so passionate about our skincare range Seed to Skin. We use completely organic products that work from the inside out.”
Have guests had life-changing epiphanies at Borgo?
“Yes!” Jeanette reveals. “I’ve had many guests tell me they’ve sought out new directions in life after staying with us. That’s so inspiring!”
Borgo’s inherent healing energy is so subtle you may not immediately notice it, but it will be working its magic on you, whether or not you believe in things unseen. It certainly has a profound effect on my own body, mind and soul during my stay.
Indeed, Borgo’s Seed to Skin skincare motto is a reminder of the restorative qualities at this exquisite retreat: “You are as young as your passion. As old as your fears. As vital as your courage. As limited as your judgements.”
Ideally, you need to stay at Borgo Santo Pietro for at least a week. That will give you time to relax and enjoy the spa, the grounds, the suites, the restaurants, and the farm. And to venture farther afield to Siena, as well as local hilltop villages and wineries. Engage with all your senses during your visit: Listen to the birdsong and the wind in the trees. Feel the sun on your body; savour the extraordinary cuisine and allow yourself to melt into the stillness.
Borgo Santo Pietro estate has a truly magical quality, thanks to its ancient healing legacy and exquisite grounds and accommodation. A luxurious sanctuary in which to completely relax and recharge: After only a few days you’ll be feeling, as I did, part of the lovely Borgo family.
Grazie mille Borgo Santo Pietro – tornerò presto!
