Borgo Pignano: Plan Your Stay

Located in Tuscany, Italy

How to Get There

Borgo Pignano’s nearest town is Volterra, which can be glimpsed on the horizon and is twenty minutes by car. The closest international airports are Florence and Pisa, which are roughly an hour away. While it is recommended that guests rent their own car, transfers to and from the airports can be arranged at an extra cost.

What to Expect

Borgo Pignano’s main villa is equipped with an elevator and a wheelchair-accessible public bathroom. Due to the lodge’s historic architecture and rugged grounds, guests with limited mobility should call the lodge directly to discuss whether a visit to Borgo Pignano is feasible. There is a small medical facility 20 minutes away by car in Volterra, and a larger hospital in Poggibonsi is a 30-minute drive.

Weather and Seasons

The lodge is open from April to October. Temperatures in central Tuscany are hot during the summer months, with daytime highs reaching into the high 80s and 90s° F. Spring and fall are considered peak travel seasons: pleasant and generally sunny, with average daytime temperatures in the 70s° F.

What to Bring

Borgo Pignano does not have a dress code, but guests typically choose to wear comfortable outdoor clothing for daytime activities such as hiking, biking, and horseback riding, and casual evening attire for cocktail hour and dinners at Villa Pignano. A pair of comfortable walking shoes is essential for exploring neighboring hill towns, where streets are often steep and cobbled.

Traveling with Family

Borgo Pignano welcomes families with children of all ages. Guided activities—from art classes to horseback riding—provide fun, interactive experiences, while the lodge’s orchards, gardens, and woodland paths offer endless opportunities for outdoor exploration.
