Relax in the Tuscan Sunshine and Shop Til You Drop at the Florence Outlet Mall


The Borgo Santo Pietro's "Girl's Only" Getaway


Chiusdino, Italy (4/2011) - Getting away with your girlfriends should be  a fun and  stress-free  vacation.  That's why Italy's Borgo Santo Pietro  designed a 3-night 'Girls Only' Getaway to Tuscany combining all the romance of the countryside with a day-long shopping and cultural spree to Florence. 


With girlfriend's getaways on the rise (TIA* reported a 24 percent jump from 2007 to 2010), the Borgo Santo Pietro offers the ideal environment to reconnect with your girlfriends over a glass of prosecco in the lemon garden or during a game of Bocci Ball on the grounds of this 800--year old  hamlet.    Featuring an 8-bedroom main house, three garden cottages, a bakery turned spa and 13 acres of ornamental and vegetable gardens with daily cooking, wine tasting and floral arranging classes, the Borgo is an enchanted Tuscan setting.


"We had a lot of fun designing our 'Girls Only' Getaway package, "said Jeanette Thottrup who owns Borgo Santo Pietro with her husband Claus.  "While the Borgo is the perfect base for enjoying Tuscany, we know that girls love to shop so we arranged a visit to the world famous Florence outlet mall, an experience unto itself."   A chauffeur driven car will take the girls to the mall and then drive them to Florence for a tailor-made tour.  Jeanette's "in the know" Florentine friend will personally guide each tour pointing out all the charms of Florence from art treasures to shopping finds.
