Borgo Pignano’s heated infinity pool is hard to match and is nestled on the slope of a hill beneath the villa, with views over the Tuscan countryside.
The pool was carved from the shell of an ancient limestone quarry, which supplied most of the stone for Borgo Pignano’s, but was also hauled to Volterra where it was used to construct La Porta dell’Arco, one of the town’s principal gateways.
The pool is surrounded by a limestone terrace with chaises longues and parasols.
An outdoor bar is at hand and private cabanas and a lavender garden can be found on the lower terraces.
A separate swimming pool is available for children under the age of twelve.
All the surrounding villas have private swimming pools.
Borgo Pignano offers something for children of all ages.
During the summer, specially trained staff take care of young children with half day or day long programs which include diversions such as outdoor painting, dye-making with flowers and spices, and sculpting from raw materials.
For toddlers we have a small, shaded area with assorted playthings. We also offer childrens’ lunches and dinners.
Older children enjoy the freedom of the gardens and woodlands which provide plenty of room to explore.
The stables and horseback lessons are also popular with our young set of demanding clients who aren’t shy about providing customer feedback.
For teenagers, reluctant to accompany their parents on yet another cultural outing, we have an all-weather tennis court which can quickly be transformed into a five-a-side soccer pitch.
We also have a half-basketball court and paddle-ball court.
Teenagers often enjoy taking one of our gravel or mountain bikes for spins around the estate or venturing out on long horseback rides.
