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.

Loved the setting. Feels very Tuscan, and traditional whilst also having every modern convenience. Loved the size of pool and suitability for children.

"As regards our week at Il Borgo, we all felt it was one of the best weeks we have had out of all the Tuscany Now holidays we've done. This was partly because the setting of the house was so lovely but also the amenities that it provides so suited our family. We all really enjoyed the way that it had been modernised with all sorts of interesting features and furniture. The kitchen was one of the best equipped that we have experienced. The other reason that we were particularly impressed with the set-up was the helpfulness and attentiveness of the owner Eduardo Robiglio. Never before have we been contacted by an owner in advance to sort out accommodation questions and to give us the opportunity to ask questions that might be concerning us. We heard from him several times and began to wonder if he might be too much in evidence on our holiday but not a bit of it. He was friendly and helpful and always available by phone or email if we had a problem but apart from taking us to the property initially , one visit midweek to see if we were doing ok and again at the end he left us to ourselves. We cannot recommend this villa highly enough."

Dear Edoardo and family, thank you for creating such a warm and welcoming atmosphere for us this Christmas at Petroio, only matched and enhanced by the magic of the snow and sun to welcome the New Year 2015! May it have much wonder in store for all of you, and may it bring us back soon in your mist. Much gratitude for sharing the beauty of this land.

Thank you for being such an amazing host. Kennedy. Dear Edoardo, thank you for the most unforgettable week, I wish it would never end. The house and the land are so beautiful.

Dear Edoardo and Missy, we have been to Italy three times but this time feels as though we experienced the real Italy. Thank you so much for this week, it was a true pleasure. Kathie and George. Thanks for the wonderful opportunity to experience the Villa Life in Tuscany. We really enjoyed your home and fabulous dinner of lasagne and fruit tart. Thanks again.

Chad Phelps

What a lovely place! What a holiday! Thank you so much for the hospitality, your assistance in everything from lost luggage, to navigating Florence late at night, the dinners and all extras. Your attention to detail and the service has all been outstanding. We loved everything about the house and are so sad to leave. What a special place. We will try our best not to recommend it so you have some space to when we come back : !

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.

A beautiful, comfortable villa in a wonderful rural setting with charming and helpful owners and staff ensured a perfect holiday for our group. As usual the overall service from Tuscany Now was excellent.

Alex Nutter

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.

Stephany Palicte

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.

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.

Ravi Mehta

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.

Ravi Mehta

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.

Katja Plentinger

It was incredible! Local services were excellent a wonderful bonus. Everything was super special.

Katja Plentinger

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.

Thank you so much for our unforgettable stay in your beautiful villa. It was a pleasure to meet you and get to know Tuscany a little. Thanks also to your very friendly and helpful staff.

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.

Tom St-Amand

What a beautiful time our family had at your beautiful villa. The boys enjoyed your pool and tennis court everyday! Everything was perfect! The view is one we will never forget. You were truly a wonderful host. We can't thank you enough for all your suggestions and help. It has been a pleasure meeting you! We hope to come again.
