It all started in the 60s, when Elena Ferraris, mother of the present owner Marcello Ferraris, decided to purchase the estate in the middle of the woods and the hills of Siena, close to the historical centre of San Gimignano. The estate included the mansions and several farms at the time used as peasants’ houses and animals’ barn


Accommodation: rooms / apartments / villas. Beds: 115 Treatment offered: bed, breakfast and restaurant

The farm

Following the exodus of farmers towards the cities, also in light of the end of sharecropping economy, in the early 90s, Marcello Ferraris and his wife Patrizia Giangrossi chose to gradually restructure the various buildings, to make them cosy and charming rooms for family vacations. With a typically rustic Tuscan style, in the hamlet named “La Torre” they built 16 apartments surrounded by a large lawn; from the ancient building located on Mons Caroli, name given in honour of Carlo Magno – now Montecarulli – they built nine rooms with private bathrooms. Even the mansions, called Bandella and Bandellina from the name of the avenue where you are (bandwa, from the ancient German, is translated as “small field with clear boundaries”), were made cosy and comfortable accommodations.
Fattorie Santo Pietro has currently rooms for about 115 people, 4 swimming pools, a Restaurant where you can taste dishes from local heritage, a facility for wine production including a traditional cellar for wine preservation and a portion of the forest to serve as hunting reserve.

The accommodation

In the lush surrounding garden, a splendid infinity pool is set, with a panoramic view of the typical Tuscan landscape with vineyards, sunflower fields and medieval villages.

Activities and surroundings

Tuscany is a land where history has left deep traces, perfectly set in a timeless beauty. A historic tour of villages and cities such as Florence, Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano, Colle val d’Elsa, Monteriggioni, is a real journey into the past, immersed in ancient and authentic atmospheres.
Tuscany is a land that has been capable to enhance its food and wine excellence much earlier than the other regions of Italy. For this reason, in the main cities like Florence, Siena and Pisa, but also in the small villages of Val d'Elsa and Val di Pesa, as well as in the now famous areas such as Chianti and Val d'Orcia, you will find a wide variety of delicacies to be savored.
While, in many cities, slowness and clean air have now become precious assets, Tuscany offers large uncontaminated spaces, pleasant for those who love cycling, trekking, hiking or simply walking. The beauty of scenarios that wisely blend nature and the hand of man, will satisfy the eye and the spirit, reconciling with the simplest and most important pleasures of life.

In the 40 hectares of vineyards in Fattorie Santo Pietro, entire hills are covered with vines. The vines are pruned cordon, with very low yields per hectare. The real show begins in September, when green grapes turn gradually into orange and red. So the harvest begins, to give very good wines, as is tradition in the area.
The olive groves are great actors too: 3800 olive trees, scattered on the estate constitute a heritage that gives each year a world class extravirgin olive oil of high quality certified. A deep color and robust taste, obtained by wise cold pressing as tradition requires.
