Overview

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. A beautifully kept garden with a fountain; with a shaded dining area for 24 people and two seating areas both for ten people each one of which with a canvas for shade. 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.

Starting from 2016:
The Estate will include three separate residences, the 12th century Villa and two stone farmhouses, Borgo di Petroio and Casa Arianna.

Casa Arianna; lies about half way between La Villa and Il Borgo. A rustic Tuscan charm with spacious living areas with terracotta floors, two sitting rooms and large air-conditioned bedrooms with parquet flooring each with an ensuite bathroom complimented with beamed ceilings. A dining loggia lies to the rear comfortable seating eight people.

Clients reviews

Dear Edoardo, When I booked La Villa and Il Borgo for our family reunion I didn't suppose they could be as perfect as the website portrayed. But I was wrong. When we arrived and you showed us around the property I could not believe that you were so generous as to allow others to enjoy this amazing place. The website doesn't lie, there are no hidden catches, everything is perfect from the estate and its location to the staff, and the organisation. You can be sure we will be back.

This is a breathtaking property where our family was able to spend time together without being on top of each other, as though we were in a small village Precious memories!

Our extended family scattered around the globe, hold reunions from time to time. The last one held near Bordeaux was superb so Petroio had to be very good to top that. Although it was a very different experience, it did that! Edoardo is a master organiser and never dropped a single ball. When small things went wrong, they were fixed immediately. The food was nothing short of amazing and plentiful. We have nothing but praise for this wonderful place and its staff. The location is unique and beautiful, even the rustic windy road to get there adds to the charm. The ancient buildings have been wonderfully preserved just adding every modern convenience.

I know weeks may run together for you during this busy time, but for us, this past week will be a treasured memory. On Friday night the adults just marvelled at the week we had had and we were sitting outside in the Tuscan countryside eating pizza. The meals where fantastic and a few of us really enjoy cooking and all of us enjoy food! The ingredients were fresh and the dishes had a unique twist. We have a few picky eaters and everyone (to the last person) loved the food. Some of the kids would come to me at lunch time asking what we where eating for dinner. Your cleaning crew where considerate and so sweet with Faith - they came to clean during nap time so the next day asked me when she slept to make sure they did not wake her. Lisa was a gem and we thoroughly enjoyed the morning with her. I even bought some ingredients in Rufina to bring home so I can make Lisa’s tiramissu. I also bought some coffee to go with dessert! Thank you for allowing us to stay in your villa! If you have folk (especially demanding Americans) who would like a refecrence or who have questions feel free to use me as a reference. With fond memories

We had a fantastic time at the Villa. The quailty of the property is very impressive but the difference was your attention and organising whatever we needed. We had a great time. Alla prossima.

We had a fantastic week in this beautiful, quiet and romantic place, perfect for a relaxing, hassle free holiday. How lucky we have been. Sensational Tuscan sun, food and wine with the best lot of new and old friends. The Portmans. We cannot add anything to this erudite literary masterpiece in describing the wonderful time we have had here and to be quite frank about this my brain is, right now, nor capable of doing so. Huge thank you to Il Petroio for the most incredible week. A more tranquil mountain retreat it would be hard to find, tucked away as it is at the end of a challenging route. It has proved to be the perfect setting for ribaldry set against the cedars, magical. Not a single feature out of place, not a note of entertainment out of tune. Edoardo, this is a very special place. Thank you for entrusting its safe keeping to the Fellowes party many, many thanks. Words can not describe how grateful and thankful I am for the kind hospitality of Le Patron, Mr Fellowes and his wonderful daughters! Never have I been so spoilt, well fed, watered and at the same time both relaxed and partied until the early hours. What a lovely wonderful house, in the most idyllic of settings. This wonderful break couldn't have come at a better time, and everything was perfect-the setting, food, wine and most importantly fantastic company. The oldies showed us how to party and I hope the younger generation didn't disappoint. Petroio is such an amazing place. Laughed, drank, danced and ate soooo much. Going home for rest. What an enchanting place and quite unlike anywhere else we have been. The views, the house, the atmosphere are irreproachable, we have had a wonderful week here. I have never been anywhere as spectacular as this lovely place. The house, the grounds and the views are absolutely incredible. We have had such a fun week, filled with laughter. What a lovely place in a glorious situation. Lots to do, as well as soaking up the atmosphere and sunshine. So comfortable and totally spoiling. Grazie mille! Thank you Charlie our host and Edoardo (also our host) for a glorious week in this beautiful part of Tuscany. We have enjoyed every minute both around Petroio and further afield on wonderful walks-behind the houseup to the northern limits of the estate and to the south across the valley. We do not want to leave. This was indeed my first visit to the enchanting Tuscany. An area that I undoubtedly fell in love with all too suddenly. A week holiday quickly became three. A blessing I most certainly welcomed with joy and glee. Petroio has an ability to keep those inside constantly smiling. Edoardo and Missy these are the comments of my friends and those of my daughters. As you can read they have found your lovely home to good and too much to leave and I have that problem too. But over and above the beauty the comfort and the facilities here, it has been such a pleasure dealing with you both. I have loved our chats and I have amazed at how you have remembered our names. Thank you so much for not only making all this possible over the past two weeks but also being such good friends.

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.
