Magical Places

pignano_properties_-19.jpgPignano is one of Tuscany’s grandest properties and best-kept secrets. An ancient “borghetto”, whose position and imposing grandeur set it apart from all other villas in the region, Pignano boasts a history that dates from the 13th century. Pignano today has re-assumed its origins as a working “village”, with a community of twelve to fourteen full-time residents living there. The villa and its community plays host to an eclectic, enlightened and international clientele, while preserving its mission of ecological awareness.

Villa Pignano is arguably the most beautiful villa in all of Tuscany; “magical” is a word frequently heard from her guests. The villa is the ideal setting for a once-in-a-lifetime family vacation, a dream wedding, or any special event. The main villa has 17 bedrooms, 21 bathrooms, and grand public spaces including a salon, dining hall, ballroom, library, cinema and courtyard. Pignano’s sweeping lawn, with a panoramic view of Volterra, Monte Voltraio and the surrounding Tuscan hills, is an exquisite setting for outdoor weddings, concerts and parties. The villa has a state-of-the-art kitchen with its own resident chef and kitchen staff, who prepare and serve authentic and beautifully-presented Tuscan meals and special-event menus.

Pignano is a marvelous juxtaposition of earthiness and luxuriousness: it is a working farm with pigs, horses, chickens, rabbits (and the occasional wild boar), olive groves and an organic vegetable garden, while the main villa and its grounds exude taste, style and comfort. From the infinity swimming pool to the tastefully-appointed bedrooms and bathrooms, Pignano is a delight to all the senses.

The magic of Pignano ultimately lies in the warmth and spirit of the residents who live there and lovingly maintain it.

Pignano is for the adventurous traveler who seeks an authentic and soulful experience in the most beautiful place on earth.
