Borgo Pignano, just an hour south of Florence, is a Tuscan estate in a nature reserve, on a 750-acre certified organic farm dating back to the 12th century. The property has a remarkable commitment to sustainable tourism, and is a founding member of Beyond Green, a global portfolio of properties that exemplify sustainable leadership.

Environmentally friendly, locally sourced products 

In 2020 it received a Green Globe Certification, in 2019 a Condé Nast Johansens Award of Excellence in Sustainability and most recently was awarded the Green Michelin Star for its farm-to-table restaurant. The villa, the farmhouses and the apartments of Borgo Pignano have all been restored using environmentally friendly products and materials such as locally sourced stone and slate, organic plaster and eco-paints. Here the past is used to think forward and perpetuate a circular economy that is crucial to sustainable development.
