You don’t need to be a native Italian speaker to understand Borgo San Luigi’s charm.
Peaceful and relaxing, Borgo San Luigi is a beautiful 17th century estate located in the heart of the glorious Tuscan countryside between Siena and Florence, close to the ancient city walls of Monteriggioni.
Nestled in 15 acres of parkland, this rustic property is made up of five ancient buildings; the Villa, the Guest House, the Farmhouse, the Barn and the Olive Mill. In keeping to the property’s original 17th century character, these beautifully renovated buildings, full of traditional features, sit gracefully amidst century-old trees, gardens and woodland, and offer guests a large, inviting swimming pool, bar with sun terrace, two restaurants and tennis courts.
MBT Events will be taking over the entire property for this event!
This is a magical environment, a place of the soul, that we believe will make the perfect location for yet another fantastic MBT Immersive Experience.
To experience more of the region’s treasures, why not stay on for a few days after the immersive to relax, see the sites or stop by a local winery for an authentic tasting. You can get to Siena, with its historic city center (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), in just 30 minutes by car. If you’re in the mood for a day trip, Florence shouldn’t be missed either at just an hour’s drive away. This city, the birthplace of the Renaissance, is filled with some of the most impressive art and architecture found anywhere in the world.
As you would expect from a 17th century estate, all 73 rooms and suites at Borgo San Luigi offer plenty of local character with furnishings remindful of ancient country houses of the nobility. Every detail has been carefully considered from the handcrafted period furnishings and fabrics to the traditional red Tuscan terra-cotta floor tiles. Some of the bedrooms feature rustic fire places, historic frescoes and traditional Tuscan four-poster beds. Almost all of the rooms offer a private terrace garden or balcony. Located in buildings scattered throughout the grounds, all room types are equipped with private en-suite bathrooms and offer either vineyard or mountain views.
All of your meals along with a selection of snacks, tea/coffee and non-alcoholic drinks are included at each MBT Immersive Experience.
Breakfast and lunch will be taken either in the restaurant or out on the patio while dinner will be served buffet style in the restaurant
The catering team at Borgo San Luigi are no strangers when it comes to catering large events and look to the Sienese landscape and Tuscan culinary traditions to provide inspiration and shape their menus using fresh local produce wherever possible. At La Limonaia, the chic on-site restaurant, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free requests are easily accommodated.
If you will be flying in to join us the nearest major airports will be Galileo Galilei International Airport in Pisa or Peterola Airport in Florence. While the Pisa airport is further away from the Borgo, there is more selection when it comes to flights and prices are generally much cheaper. For these reasons, Pisa airport is the airport which will be providing our free shuttle to and from Borgo San Luigi.
We will be providing one coach transfer in each direction to and from Pisa International airport airport for those that need it. It is estimated that the pick up service will depart from the airport at 2.30pm on the day of arrival and depart from Borgo San Luigi at 10.30am on the day of departure, so we suggest you try to plan your trip to arrive in Pisa late morning or early afternoon on the day of arrival and then plan to get to the airport for your flight home sometime around noon on the day of departure.
If you plan on driving to the event, there is plenty of parking at the property.
About a week prior to this immersive, you will be sent a link to the binaural beats that Tom has created especially for these Immersive Experiences so that you can download them to the device of your choice.
These binaural beats are not available anywhere else and are your key to accessing each of the exercise sessions that Tom has devised for the experience.
You should bring these with you along with a good set of stereo headphones. Tom has suggested that the in-ear variety of earbuds actually work best with the binaural beats.
This MBT Immersive will follow a similar itinerary to previous MBT Immersives with the added benefit of an extra day added to the program. You will be free to arrive from 3pm onwards and settle into your chosen accommodation before joining Tom and the rest of the group for dinner at 6pm. If you wish to arrive earlier than 3pm, you should contact the property directly to request an early check-in if available. After dinner on the first evening, Tom will give an introduction to the program he has devised before you go straight into your first exercise. The next four days will follow the same routine. After breakfast, you will join Tom in the meeting room at 9am for your first exercises and discussions which will take you through to lunch at 1pm. There will be periods of down time each afternoon before the exercises recommence. Breaking off for dinner at 6pm, you will reconvene in the meeting room at 7pm. The next couple of hours will be given over to open discussion and Q & A. The immersive will finish after breakfast on the final morning when we all say our fond farewells.
