Overview

The elegant 12th century Villa sits on hillside blessed by stunning views of the rich hills near Ruffina, a famous Chianti region near to Florence. The owners of La Villa Di Petroio have found the perfect balance between the modern and the traditional. Every salvageable feature of the original building has been preserved and incorporated into an exceptionally tasteful design that offers all the practical benefits of an entirely new building. Now the centrepiece of an estate producing wine and olive oil, the Villa and its self-sufficient guest wing features bright, airy rooms with high, wood-beamed ceilings furnished in an elegant blend of antiques and contemporary pieces. Air-conditioned double bedrooms, modern bathrooms several of which ensuite make this one of our most comfortable villas to choose from. Large open plan living/dining room with a central fireplace and panoramic windows offering stunning views, a professional kitchen with a fantastic dining area has been just added the perfect setting to host a special event for up to 40 persons. A beautifully kept garden leads from the house to a secure swimming pool positioned to enjoy lovely views of rolling hills. A sense of complete tranquillity prevails at the villa, such that as time passes it becomes more and more difficult to tear yourself away. On the same 900 acre estate there is a large stone farmhouse, Il Borgo di Petroio, with its own private fenced pool that can be rented independently or with the Villa for weddings or just large family reunions.

Clients reviews

What can be said about perfection? Grazie; for allowing us to experience the beauty, charm and comfort of your wonderful villa and grounds. The attention to detail, the superb Tuscan food, the kindness and patience toward people who were inexperienced travellers was more than expected. It would be a great pleasure to visit all of you again in the fantastic oasis of Petroio.

The property was exceptional. It was everything we hoped for and more. The setting was fantastic and the villa exceeded all our expectations. The description doesn't do it justice. It is probably the nicest property we have ever stayed in.

It's a wonderful property in a stunning location where the owners treat you like long-lost friends. What's not to like? You are an excellent company to deal with and always highly responsive to any customer requests.

Wow! We could not have asked for more. Pictures can not capture the beauty of the wonderful Fattoria. Your staff have been extremely helpful and kind. Your home provided the perfect setting for extended family to reunite, thank you and hopefully, same time next year.

We have all enjoyed our week at this beautiful villa and want to thank you for your welcome. It has been very special for us to have our family together to celebrate our 70th birthdays! Thoroughly enjoyed playing tennis and sitting by the lovely pool.

The whole property has been renovated so beautifully and so thoughtfully. There is so much space, indoor and out, that even in a big group, you can always be on your own if you want. Amazing space for relaxing. Missy and Edo were magnificent hosts, friendly, jovial, interesting, full of information about the estate and area and always eager to help. Doriana made wonderful food for us and everyone was always smiling and happy to help. We went on and stayed in a highly rated hotel for a few nights after our stay at Petroio - it seemed cramped and shabby in comparison! Petroio has ruined other places for us! We've been booking with you for 7 years now and are already starting to choose dates for next year's trip!

The property is wonderful but the owners were an absolute delight, more like welcoming hosts than landlords. Definitely a 5; the standard of catering was outstanding.

We arrived from London, Miami and Manhattan with very ambitious plans to explore all over. However the gorgeous villa incredible pool and the heat meant we barely left Petroio all week! By the day 6 we were so relaxed. The villa far exceeded expectations we loved the sitting room with panoramic views especially and Richard (heat intolerant) was very grateful for the AC. It is an awe-inspiring setting very fitting to be surrounded by vine yards and olives. The real highlight was Doriana's cooking, we loved the wild boar, pasta, pesto, and chocolate tart each day was delicious. Thank you for looking after us all, we will stare at the photos of Petroio till we come back.

The Fairhead family, McCarthy family and the Cooper gang all came to Italy as part of Grandma's treat to us for her Birthday celebration. We found the villa absolutely gorgeous and a few days we didn't go anywhere and just laid around by the pool. The boys loved playing football on the footie pitch. Thank you for letting us stay here it's been so relaxing and one of the best weeks we have had!

The 15 days at Petroio this year seemed too short! This house is a sanctuary for me, relaxing and peaceful after the hum drum of our busy lives in Bombay. We will see you next year.

What a fantastic home! We had a really wonderful stay - lots of swimming, table tennis, darts and Trivial Pursuit. Doriana made us feel very welcome and we loved her Lasagna.

2011 is a special year for our family spanning 3 generations and celebrating 3 special birthdays. An 80th, 16 and 18 then there was the 50th wedding anniversary. We have had a wonderful stay in this perfect setting, every facility imaginable, a beautiful house filled with beautiful accessories. Missy was fantastic with her help and concern. Doriana quietly went about making us comfortable and provided the best roast pork ever! Not to mention a birthday cake. A week was too short! Thank you.

The best way possible to spend my 70th birthday at a Tuscan villa with family and friends. Even though we enjoyed Rome, Florence and Venice the highlight was coming back to Petroio.

Our second stay in your beautiful villa, and as always exceeded expectations. Your attention to detail and welcoming home made us all feel so comfortable. Our daily 2 hour hike up and down the mountain was just enough to work off the great Tuscan meals cooked by Doriana. Good food, wine, friends and the most beautiful place in Italy, once again made our trip so special!

I loved the fact that this villa was part of a family and part of a compound. Lots of history and memories here. Missy was a great hostess. Everything was perfectly chosen and maintained. Colors and decorating was vibrant and outside the norm.

We arranged our first trip to Tuscany to celebrate our 25th Wedding anniversary with family and dearest friends. What a surprise we encountered, your warmest greetings, your unbelievable house, your incredible helper and the amazing area you live in. It has been the most fantastic experience for us all. We can not thank you enough.

This was our first trip to Tuscany and it has been a truly fantastic experience. The countryside, the weather and most importantly, the house has been absolutlely superb.. We have all felt very much at home in the villa, such that some of party did'nt feel they wanted to step over the door for the duration of our stay. The rest of us managed to get to Siena, Florence and enjoyed the history and atmosphere of these ancient cities. We very much enjoyed the olive oil and wine from the local vineyard. Thank you for your kind hospitality and we hope to see you again soon.

The children loved their time here and I am sure will remain in their memories for the rest of their lives.The villa is lovley, the feeling of home seeping through it's walls, and the sensation of love oozing through the furniture.Again thank you for a wonderful stay - we enjoyed the holiday immensely.

Fattoria di Petroio is so beautiful!The old property is so well restored and the ambiance is wonderful, with antiques and great paintings but keeping the country flavour. It has great bathrooms, bedrooms that are gorgeous and the view is beautiful, you really are in the middle of mountains with olive trees and vines and woods all around you. It is also very well kept and very well organized and well administrated; and the owners are the best! Both Missy and Edoardo helped us to feel at home and helped in every possible way to make us feel at home. We had a wonderful dinner with Tuscan dishes at the loggia and we also had a private Mass at the property's Chapel which Missy helped to make it possible, in every way . It was incredible!

When this trip was planned it was going to be an adventure for me, however what an experience it has turned out to be. A warm welcome from you and a home away from home, full of positive vibrations in a glorious setting. For my wife and I to be with all the family especially the grand-kids was a great joy. To see them playing in the garden and jumping in the pool will remain etched in our memories for ever.

We liked the grounds, the bathrooms and most especially the charm and graciousness of the owner,Carol Robiglio She was just amazing. I have spent eight summers in rented houses in the Italian countryside and have never had so much kind (but in no way overwhelming or unwelcomed) attention. She was simply delightful and made for a wonderful two weeks.

It was equiped with everything we could ever need, the decor was amazing and Carol the owner was the best.The pictures don't do the place justice, they don't show how large the property is
