The Experience

With sustainability at its caring heart, I Pini is all about connecting with nature and promoting well-being. Come to get away from hustle and immerse yourself in the informality and beauty of the farm; see organic growing and permaculture in action; taste the fresh herbs; join the grape harvest; talk to staff happy to explain their philosophy and produce.

Calm, uncluttered bedrooms are extremely comfortable and everyone gathers in the lofty, friendly dining room – the only spot with WiFi – with its bar and doors onto the pool patio. Of course meals are home-made, home-grown, vegan and organic. Dinners are amazing; candlelit, 4-course affairs to linger over; conjured from the day’s garden best, served with spicy preserves, raw vegan cheeses – and sweet things. And you can lunch too. Florence and Siena are an hour away.

I loved the immediate sense of calm upon arriving. Unplug, as wifi and devices are not the norm. Nibbling on salt-bush and electric daisies in the permaculture garden while looking over to the medieval towers of San Gimignano is a unique experience. The satisfying vegan meals are prepared with love and creativity. The kind staff cares for your well-being. At I Pini you connect with nature.

The neighbourhood

A 20-minute walk, only 1.5km, but a world away from lovely, busy San Gimignano. The bumpy lane to I Pini leads away from crowds to this old farm, its olive groves, vineyards and views of medieval tower tops. This is hiking and biking country; tours, wine tastings and cookery courses can be arranged. It’s 12km to charming, watery Colle Val D’Elsa. Guests eat mostly at I Pini but there’s a vegan bistro in Volterra, a scenic 40-minute drive away

Francesca Posch

Francesca and Benjamin are born and bred hoteliers - this spot is a delightful marriage of their experience and passions. The hotel has always been in the family but they have transformed it into Italy’s first vegan hotel and done so beautifully. You’ll only notice the friendly staff are there if you need them.
