Le Dimore del Quartetto


Categories , ,

An elegant historic residence surrounded by hectares of unspoilt nature, Borgo Sant’Ambrogio is an excellent accommodation facility located in a privileged position in terms of beauty, history and culture. In the heart of Tuscany, nestled between the Val di Chiana and Val d’Orcia, the property comprises an estate, of which an organic farm is an integral part, and a large resort for hospitality and the organisation of events and ceremonies.
The elevated position of the complex guarantees an enchanting view of the lake and the green spaces of the nature reserve, which embraces the property and guarantees privacy and tranquillity. Surrounding a large central square, paved with stones and lawn, is the Resort with its six spacious flats, the reception with wine cellar and corner of local products, a bright hall for meetings and events, the charming restaurant with vaulted ceiling, the swimming pool and a small chapel.
Borgo Sant’Ambrogio has belonged to the same family for three generations. Over the decades, they have cultivated a philosophy of being close to nature and making the most of its resources, combined with a deep sense of human and professional hospitality.



Borgo Sant’Ambrogio reserves a 5% discount on overnight stays for Friends of Le Dimore del Quartetto for Christmas.

The apartment complex (six, with a total of eleven rooms) is accessible from the central square via a small cordonade leading to the courtyard.
The flats, furnished with sober elegance, are named after the varieties of olive trees that the Sant’Ambrogio organic farm cultivates.

As a welcome gift, guests can enjoy a taste of their own organic olive oil, accompanied by a rustic slice of toasted bread.

The Leccino flat is named after one of the main olive cultivars on the farm, which is widespread in the Florentine and Pistoia areas. The flat is characterised by a bright living room, whose windows appear like two paintings, opening onto the splendid Palazzo Massaini, one, and the view of Pienza, the other. It includes a spacious bedroom with a private terrace, very suitable to accommodate the bride and groom while respecting their privacy, and a second room (which can be excluded and rented individually).

The Moraiolo flat is named after the Tuscan cultivar that is widespread in Italy and other Mediterranean countries, whose oil is highly prized for its high antioxidant content. The flat has a large and characteristic two-level living room with mezzanine. It is flooded with light through the full-height window that communicates with the garden. It consists of a deluxe room on the lower floor, accessible to the disabled and rentable individually, and a second room on the upper floor.

The Maurino flat takes its name from the olive cultivar of the same name that is widespread throughout central Italy. The flat has access from the courtyard and is on one level, making it very suitable for families with children. The flat’s main room is embellished by a large segmental arch. The large living room and the two bedrooms enjoy a splendid view of the valley and the lake.

The Olivastra flat is so called because of the only variety of minor olive tree on the farm. It is native to the Monte Amiata area and its oil has distinctive organoleptic characteristics. The suite flat, with a living room with a large fireplace and the staircase leading to the bedroom with a view of the mountain from which the olive tree that gives it its name originates, is particularly suitable for couples who want to enjoy peace and tranquillity.

The Correggiolo flat is named after the most widespread Tuscan variety that is a true excellence for the organoleptic characteristics of the oil it produces. The living room and the two bedrooms all enjoy direct access from the garden, making it suitable for families with children or couples who want to enjoy complete independence. The living room is characterised by a lowered space in which there is a fireplace with a bench intended for relaxing moments and pleasant chats around the fire.

The Pendolino flat owes its name to the cultivar indispensable to any company that produces extra virgin olive oil. In fact, in addition to producing an excellent oil, it is the universal pollinator for all other varieties. The flat is on two levels: on the ground floor is the living room, embellished by the jar dug out of the tuff under the floor that was once used to store seeds. Upstairs are the two bedrooms, one with access to the garden and the other enjoying a splendid view of Pienza and overlooking the lake. Outside the living room there is a large patio where you can spend pleasant cool summer evenings.

The restaurant is located on the ground floor of the building that also houses the Meeting Room. Covered by vaulted ceilings and lit by suggestive torches, it evokes the charming spirit of old country taverns. Finely furnished and able to accommodate up to 120 people, it can be customised down to the smallest detail.

On the same level as the restaurant is a charming veranda for breakfast, which can be adapted for refreshments, traditional or buffet-style lunches and dinners.

Sant’Ambrogio is a certified organic farm. In keeping with its history, the company uses only natural substances and traditional production techniques to offer only products of excellence: cereals (wheat, barley, oats), fodder, wood, truffles (white, black and scorzone truffles) and extra virgin olive oil.

Our oil, whose annual production exceeds three thousand litres, boasts ICEA certification as Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Cold pressed using mechanical processes and unfiltered, it is then bottled at the Fregoli oil mill in Pienza, a long-standing collaborator of the Sant’Ambrogio farm.

Located in the green heart of Tuscany, the farm enjoys the optimal geographical and microclimatic conditions to offer a quality production that respects the natural balance and biodiversity.


The history of Borgo Sant’Ambrogio has its roots in the 17th century, the period to which the oldest part of the structure dates back. The main building dates back to the 17th century, while the wings to the south and north and the outbuildings housing the farmhouse, restaurant and meeting room are from the early 20th century.
During the 18th century, Sant’Ambrogio was a monastery of nuns devoted to the Milanese saint of the same name (a coeval portrait of whom is still preserved).
Underneath the 19th-century frescoes, which adorn the main farmhouse, a further layer of frescoes dating back to the previous century has been found.
In 1971, the estate, owned by the Contucci family of Montepulciano, was taken over by Ranieri and Maria Teresa Apollonj Ghetti.

Fascinated by the beauty of the surrounding nature reserve and the centuries-old history of the Borgo, they chose Sant’Ambrogio as the ideal setting to enjoy the riches of Tuscan nature together with their six children.
