Our family of 23 spent a week in Villa Petrolo and we were all extremely satisfied. The house was very well kept and there was more than enough rooms and beds for everyone. Some rooms were bigger than others but each had its own charm. The center of all activity was the dining room. The villa cook, Graziella, cooked up... More

Dear Migi, Hope all is well in Manila! Your family was lovely and I'm glad they all spent a good time toghether. I know it can be quite a surprise to discover the only noises at night are crickets and frogs (and occasional bell of dears!) Looking forward to meet you again! Marco More

10 of us stayed very comfortably in one of Petrolo's villas. The house is well equipped with everything you need to self cater for a week. We embraced the Tuscan lifestyle and enjoyed family meals around the table in the heart of the house. We were also able to enjoy a BBQ outside on a balmy July evening. The villa... More

I have stayed at Villa Petrolo on 3 occasions over the past 10 years and have always had a wonderful holiday. I travel with friends usually about 15-20 of us. The staff at Petrolo are amazing- always friendly and helpful. The views from the bedroom windows are amazing. I also love the history attached to Petrolo and the surrounding area... More

We had 5 couples in a house with a pool and a cook who provided excellent Tuscan dinners every night. Sienna and Florence are an easy drive, and exploring the Chianti region is lovely and rewarding. Even the villa itself with Della Robbia work in the chapel, a Roman tower, and the biggest white cattle you ever saw, is worth... More

We hosted 14 of our friends for my wife's 50th this past week and had a wonderful stay. We received excellent service from the entire staff including Marco, Sandra, and Lorenzo. Villa Petrolo is a beautiful spot with fantastic grounds and gardens. The view from the patio is truly a special view. Strongly suggest a tour of the vineyard and... More

My family and I went to Petrolo to celebrate my 50th birthday in mid-September. We stayed in the Vigna house. The whole experience was incredibly relaxing. You are literally in the middle of a field of vines. The house itself is clean and rustic and rather basic but it goes so wonderfully well with the overall setting. The peacefulness and... More

Petrolo is an excellent place to stay: the location is fantastic; the people friendly and more than helpful; the view and sorroundings are breath taking; everything is clean so you feel at home; you have everything you need for a long stay...

Thanks for this review Hedonistic3. Changing the mattresses will be my priority this year! I'm sorry you think the cleanings are costly. For us is difficult to find a good compromize between the cost of work and what is perceived by our guest as a right price. Your review will be a mean of deeper thought on how to work... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Petrolo for a week this July. My husband and I and eight friends rented farmhouse Vigna and it was beautiful. We loved it! With five bedrooms and four bathrooms it was perfect for ten people to share. The view from our bedroom and bathroom were spectacular! Every morning I woke up to a... More

Beyond words…the Tuscan wedding and destination we dreamt about. In fact we don’t know where to start. It was all perfect, everything from beginning to end was perfect so we have to start somewhere. And by the way nothing we say will do justice to our experience at Petrolo. We are from Europe, live in the US, and were looking... More
