This place is simple amazing. The overview over the tuscan countryside is beautiful and surprised us especially during diner. At night the lights glow in front of you and far away, which is very romantic and magical. Also the Staff is very kind and helpful. Our room was a bit small, but nice.

We came here for my 70th birthday. It could not have been better. The service, food, surroundings and five star room all left nothing to be desired and nothing was too much trouble for the staff to do for us. I'd go so far as to say that if you go elsewhere (in the same category) which we had to... More

We stayed here in mid-May with a small group tour. The location overlooks the Tuscan countryside and is only about 20 minutes outside Cortona. The food is excellent, the staff is warm and friendly and the views are spectacular. The overall setting is serene and peaceful. A great location to base a visit to Tuscany.

Our daughter was married here last weekend and we cannot praise the place and the staff enough! It is quite simply, amazing! The staff could not have been more helpful, the chef's food (Walter by name) is sublime and the head waiter did not seem to ever sleep! The rooms are beautiful and the pool area has a view across...

We had a wonderful stay for a week - the location is absolutely stunning with the most incredible views. The food offered at dinner is fantastic, breakfast had more options than we expected - breads, ham cheese, eggs, cereals, yoghurt, fruit salad, pastries etc. You definitely need a car - everything was a little bit further than we thought. Great... More

Fantastic hotel and venue in the south of Tuscany. The views and facilities were amazing. The rooms were excellent and absolutely spotlessly clean. Ideally situated just 10 minutes from the beautiful town of Cortona. I would strongly recommend a car to get around and explore.

Train station in Cortona made travel to Florence so easy, only 1.5 hrs and relatively cheap. staff friendly and courteous. We drove down from Pisa and found getting around no problem.

We spent a week here on a time-share. Good location for touring area. Dinners out in Cortona most nights. Apartment was charming, with wood-burning fireplace, also washer/dryer in apartment and nice place to sit out and good views. Problem with the off-season is no bar/restaurant open, and the pool and sitting out would have been lovely if a bit warmer.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You can find Relais Villa Petrischio in the heart of Tuscany. The Villa was built in the 18th century on the highest hill of Farneta, which is a little village ten miles away from Cortona. Villa Petrischio is surrounded by three hectares of park with secular pines and cypresses . A long time ago the Villa belonged to the family of Count Lambardi, now the new owners have changed it in to a charming and elegant four star Relais. The accommodation offers guests a pleasantly relaxing experience, after a walk in the park or a trip to visit the "pearls of the valley". 18 rooms named after mythological females are situated between the Villa and “Il Borgo” which has a Japanese atmosphere. All the rooms are decorated with precious designs and it's possible to sense the touch of local artisans of the 18th century, without forgetting modern equipment as LCD TV, hydro massage bathtub and shower , minibar and wi-fi connection. All the rooms open up to the large green park and around the swimming pool there is natural terrace offering unforgettable views over Tuscany. Within the three hectare park there is a possibility to find many beautiful details as little rose fountain and a Japanese garden. From the swimming pool terrace it is possible to look at an inimitable sunset. At the edge of the swimming pool there is our restaurant La Terrazza where our appreciated Chef Walter Passeri 1 Michelin* offers typical Tuscan plates from an extensive “à la carte” menu. ... more   less
