Overview

Il Borgo di Petroio is a beautiful stone farmhouse set on an important 900 acre estate in the hills above Rufina, within easy reach of Florence. The large farmhouse has just been lovingly restored by the owners. They used their experience of caterers and event designers for the wealthy for two generations and we added our 22 years of experience of renting luxury villas in Tuscany. The final result is great. Large rooms with high white wash beamed ceilings, air-conditioned bedrooms and contemporary en suite bathrooms. A professional kitchen, a spacious dining room, two fireplaces with plenty of comfortable seating areas. The main house has also an attached guest house that leads into a charming courtyard with a second kitchen that has a bread oven and a large fireplace, two double bedrooms each with an en suite bathroom. The rooms have been furnished very tastefully with collections of paintings, traditional black and white photos, drawings and a wide selection of English books. Light pours from the wide gardens through the doors and windows into the pastel coloured rooms. The large private swimming pool is set in the ideal location, enjoying sweeping views of the surrounding hills and bathes in the sun all day. As the house the garden and the pool area are furnished with high quality garden furniture and by the pool there is an open shower and a changing room with WC. There is a astro-turf tennis court on the estate which is shared with the estate’s Villa that is also available. The owners are a prominent local family with roots from the US as Tuscany, that are able to cater for any of our clients needs, however complicated they might be.

Clients reviews

My family of 15 members, ranging from 70 years old to 2 years old spent a week in Il Borgo di Petroio. It is a magic place on the slopes of a Tuscan hill, offering total privacy, a wonderful homely yet elegant house, comfortably furnished, soothing green hill country views, lots to see in the surrounding area, with Florence only half an hour away by train or car. The owner of the property was incredibly helpful right from the start, and helped us out immediately we called on him, either to arrange activities or when in need of assistance on several occasions. We felt as though we were personal friends visiting for a week. The staff were delightful and efficient. We all agree that Tuscany Now is an excellent organisation offering an amazingly personal service and outstanding properties, judging from il Borgo di Petroio and the other villas pictured in the brochure, which they have to offer. Thank you to all who made this celebratory family holiday into a magic and permanently memorable experience. We are devastated to be leaving on Saturday early. How can a week have passed so fast and so pleasantly?! Il Borgo di Petroio has been a haven for us all to get together as a family and spend special time. No- one wants to leave - you have been warned! Thank you to you and your mother so much for setting up such a beautiful home from home.

Il Borgo di Petroio excellent value. As a returning customer for quite some years now, I still feel that the service from TN is absolutely top notch.

When I think about all the places and vacations I want to experience Tuscany is the location I have dreamed about for a long time. Sometimes you have a visual picture of what it would look like, a beautiful villa under the Tuscan sky. Each room decorated with creativity of a very thoughtful artist, nothing rushed but purposely planned. This is what we saw in Tuscany Now. The villa exceeded our expectations and the bonus was the hospitality and a country of very helpful and lovely people, thank you.

This experience staying at this wonderful Tuscan farm has made me recall my last visit twenty two years ago, there I was travelling with my recently graduated daughter, back packing and staying in hostels student style. What an upgrade this has been. I wish sincerely that I could be the heroine from the movie Under the Tuscan Sun and just move here permanently. The atmosphere is warm, the people are welcoming, and the food extraordinary and I love everything about this part of Italy. You have been more than accommodating and made this vacation special. Andrea Crisp. Carole and Edorardo, your villa has been a great retreat for our family and your special attention to details, fantastic. Thank you for all your help.

Thank you so much for making this a trip of a lifetime! We cannot wait to come back kids in tow. Swathi and Shirin. I can't thank you enough for the amazing experience we've had staying here in Petroio. The house was perfect and your attentiveness was very gracious. Mauro and Doriano were also very courteous and kind to us. The views from here are spectacular, we were so glad to enjoy the peacefulness of the Tuscan hills coming from the craziness of New York city. No complaints! We had the greatest time and look forward to returning.

We loved the secluded location with breathtaking views of the Tuscan Hills. The house was very clean, cosy, classy, amenable, and all around perfect. The grounds were also very beautiful with the tennis court, pool, vineyards...it all made for a picture perfect location.

Is the real world still out there?? Paradise! What an incredible and perfect place to land for a week.. the long tables led to serious family bonding and much, much laughter. Three generations from five nations, 48 bottles of wine- we really savoured the local drop, especially the Petroio Chianti our favourite. Thank you Carole and Edoardo for your kind assistance, wonderful hosts. We could not have imagined a more perfect villa in our wildest dreams. Thank you also to Mauro and Dory Barbara and Maria. What a sensational place for a family reunion.

An amazing week had by all beautiful location and fabulous interiors, peaceful and relaxing, we will be back. Caroline and Brian. What a truly wonderful week we have had in your beautiful, stylish house. I haven't felt so happy and relaxed in a very long time. It is hard to imagine anywhere more peaceful and tranquil and I can honestly say it is one of the loveliest places in the world that I have visited. Can't bear the thought of leaving and will defiantly be back. Very many thanks.

Carol and Edoardo, a wonderful time in a wonderful place. You have a truly beautiful villa. We have enjoyed our stay immensely and we cannot think of any improvements to suggest. The renovation in the Florence style is excellent and has been executed to a very good standard. We have holidayed in Italy many times but we have been totally overcome by the beauty of Petroio. The location and the size of the pool is superb and very well used. The tennis court also appreciated but less used in the heat. And we come to the meal cooked by Barbara and Maria which was immense, and the Petroio wine excellent. We hope to return.

Our celebration of life in this beautiful Tuscany villa has been a dream come true. This villa is decorated bringing the old and new style together with tasteful choices. It could not have felt more comfortable and homey. The view each morning was a wonderful way to wake up to feel peace and relaxation. Our wine tours were the best ever. Frescobaldi Castle of Nipozzano was number 1. the Wine Museum in Rufina is a must. Our favourite Restaurants Il Caldetino , Il Mulino a Vento and of course the Pizzeria Acone. Our dinners here at the villa were unique and delicious; the staff are all warm and welcoming. Incredible time here! Commend you on a job well done. Our stay could not have been more special.
