Set within a 900 acre estate in the hills above Rufina within easy reach of Florence; on The Estate Petroio resides two stunning residences, the elegant 12th century Villa and stone farmhouse, Borgo of Petroio. The perfect balance has been created by their owner, a professional caterer and event designer for the wealthy, preserving original features while incorporating 21st century comforts. The Villa; the centrepiece of the wine and olive oil estate; boasts two self-sufficient wings, one suitable for mobility restricted persons, very comfortably and tastefully furnished as the main house. Modern bathrooms several of which ensuite, compliment the air-conditioned bedrooms. A large open plan living/dining room with a central fireplace and panoramic windows offer breathtaking views, a professional kitchen and dining area have just been added, the perfect setting to host a special event for up to 40 persons. The Borgo; main house with guest house just along the way have lovingly been restored with a new lease of life. Like the Villa the same concept has been applied, air-conditioned bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, large, bright and airy living areas not to mention the all important plein air living area and al fresco dining. Not one but two large private fenced swimming pools, a football/soccer pitch and astro-turf tennis court ensure enjoyment whether it be a dip in the pool on hot summer days or a private tournament on court. For lovers of nature the estate provides extensive opportunities to wonder amongst the unspoilt countryside, a haven of peace and tranquillity.

Clients reviews

We knew the Estate di Petroio would be special from the photo gallery, but the pictures didn't prepare us for its true 'wow factor'. We kept reminding ourselves how luck we were to be there. Everything was beyond our expectation, the accommodation, the food, the spectacular views and the friendliness of everyone involved in the Estate. All 28 of us had a fantastic time, thank you Edoardo. We were very happy with the service from Tuscany Now and wouldn't hesitate to recommend or use the company again.

To the Estate of Petroio, I am sorry it has taken so long to get in front of my computer to write you a note. I wanted to thank you for all that you did to make our stay at the Estate fabulous. Your home is lovely and I couldn't have hoped for a better place to spend my birthday. I loved being at your home and thank you for all that you and Missy did to make it a wonderful experience.

The villa and beautiful surroundings made Marys and Craig's wedding absolutely perfect and exceeded our every expectation. You all went above and beyond anything we could expect, such a wonderful hosts, and we appreciate all you did for us. Your estate and hospitality made our trip one we will never forget and a perfect setting for our two families to get to know each other. Many new friendships were made and we hope and pray we will be able to return in the future. Every time we see a red geranium we shall remember the villa. Thank you so much for giving us such a wonderful memories to take home.

About 30 of us spent an amazing week at the Villa and each of us found it difficult to explain to friends once home again, what a spectacular vacation in a peaceful setting. I didn't know that such a place existed in this troubled world we live in. The villa was so well kept. We loved our rooms with our own bathrooms and it was so interesting to walk through and see posters, old photographers, antiques, a combination of old and new. Comfortable couches and chairs everywhere, so inviting. We all wondered around with our cameras taking countless photos so that we wouldn't forget what we saw in the different rooms and buildings. We loved all the terracotta pots with red geraniums, and the urns with lemon trees, the roses climbing up the white walls. We could tell this property has been loved and cared for by several generations. The sparkling pool was the meeting point every day for old and young, plenty of chairs for everyone and ice cold water available all day long in a large barrel in a shady spot. Every detail had been taken care of to add to our enjoyment of life under the bright blue sky and warm sunshine. The wedding dinner outside was a splendid meal and all still talk about watching the wedding cake being assembled beside the pool-our complements to the chef. Everyone agreed that this was the best vacation they have ever had. If we have an opportunity to recommend a destination wedding to any of our friends we shall certainly send them to Petroio. Thanks again for the best ever vacation at the Estate.

We booked the Estate of Petroio in June to bring family and friends together for our wedding. It was the perfect location. When we first arrived, I couldn't believe it. The photos online are very good, but don't come anywhere near to capturing the beautiful scenery and the properties on the estate. Edoardo, Missy and family made us feel at home, and went out of their way on many occasions to ensure our group had a great time. We booked a couple dinners and a pizza night which were all fantastic. The large kitchen and dining area was set up beautifully and easily accommodated our large group. I would highly recommend the pizza night. It was great fun. Edoardo also catered our wedding reception which was held at the estate. It was fantastic - bundled crepes, risotto, filet and a traditional wedding cake made right front of us! The reception was set up in the area in front of the villa overlooking the pool with the Tuscan hills in the background. You couldn't ask for a better spot. The Villa and Borgo offer every comfort. They've been beautifully renovated. It was difficult to pick which bedroom we wanted - they were all beautiful. I can't thank Edoardo and Missy enough for making our stay so wonderful and for giving us a wedding and a week that our families will always remember. We're already talking about a return trip for our anniversary! I would book a villa again with Tuscany Now without hesitation.
