Borgo Santo Pietro - Tuscany, Italy
Hotel Borgo Santo Pietro is one of Europe's finest boutique hotels and has been receiving guests since it was built in the early 13th century. The hotel, restaurant and spa has won numerous awards for both the standard of the accommodation and for its kitchen. With extensive herb and vegetable gardens, the menu is rooted in local tradition married with chefs of international repute. Holloways of Ludlow have been a key partner in the ongoing development of this iconic hotel and are embarking on a new phase of rooms. Holloways have supplied all of the bathroom fittings for the hotel's highly individual rooms as well as exterior lighting, cast-iron radiators and other light fittings in the hotel.
The bathrooms at Borgo Santo Pietro are all individual. Below a cast-iron hip-bath with hand-finished exterior sits within the bedroom with a polished nickel bath filler on standpipes. Also visible a hand-polished cast-iron radiator from a batch all made to order specifically for this project.
This impressive master suite incorporates the elegant Paris bath. Made to an original 19th-century French design this bath demands a romantic setting - I can't guarantee you will get rose petals when you stay! A pair of console basins either side of the window complete this perfect bathroom.
Below you can soak in a double ended cast-iron bath whilst looking out over the beautiful gardens and on towards the Tuscan hills. In the right-hand picture under-mounted basins sit on bespoke washstands designed and made to fit perfectly into the Borgo. Polished nickel basin mixer taps complete the scheme.
