Cypress-lined paths lead the way to this 13th-century villa. Once a resting place for pilgrims making the journey to Rome, it is now an elegant retreat for contemporary seekers of serenity. In the guest rooms, hand-painted murals provide the backdrop for antiques and tapestries, while outdoors, a rustic bar with candlelit alcoves overlooks the pool and gardens — the latter provides the setting for weekly movie nights. As a working organic farm, Borgo Santo Pietro produces herbs, vegetables and honey, which are incorporated not only into the restaurant's cuisine, but also into treatments in the 800-year-old former bakery-turned-spa. A highlight for lovers of local flavor, the picturesque wine cellar offers a thoughtfully selected collection of regional vintages.
