I was on my way from San Gimignano to Siena as dusk was setting in. A day filled with impressive buildings and stunning views had left me quite drained. I didn’t feel like spending the night in the city, so I had decided to look for small side streets and signs. Just before entering the town of Monteriggioni, I noticed a sign that said 'Borgo San Luigi'. The quiet dirt road gave me hope that it just might lead to the kind of place I was longing for. Quiet and comfortable.
I drove on, surrounded by cypresses until I saw the entrance on my left. Just what I was looking for. A 17th-century palazzo, surrounded by a magnificent Tuscan park landscape. I tend to look for smaller places to stay than this, but Borgo San Luigi compensates for its size with a great deal of warmth and cosiness.
This palazzo boasts an excellent restaurant, a large swimming pool and the rooms are spacious and authentic with a breathtaking view of the vineyards and hilly landscape. And there is just so much to do around here. The next day would be all about exploring Tuscany. But how? Would I be renting a bicycle or head out on foot? How about a horse? All great options. I would let it brew and decide the next morning. For now, it was time to enjoy a delicious Tuscan meal at the restaurant.
