Just completed 4 days at this wonderful small hotel in Petroio. This was a great place to relax while in Tuscany. It was an easy drive to everywhere we wanted to visit. The town itself is very small and quiet. Palazzo Brandano has a lovely back area where we could sit in the evenings. It had none of the character... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights during our two week honeymoon in Italy. Ousmane was an incredible host/manager/tour guide/anything else you can think of. Literally, he dropped us off at dinner in a nearby town the first night, drove us to Montepulciano, organized a cheese tasting at an amazing nearby farm, and was constantly available to make...

We stayed 3 nights @ Palazzo Brandano and it was the best experience of our 10 days in Italy. Petroio is a gorgeous small hill top village. It is not touristy at all which was super nice since during the day we did visit quite a few Tuscan tourist destinations. Coming back to Palazzo was a welcome opportunity to simply... More

Both Linda and Ouzmane are such pleasant hosts; you just feel welcome from the very beginning. They both are helpful, the service provided is outstanding. The palazzo itself is fascinating, enchanting, romantic and gorgeous. The food is handmade, the wine is perfect, the view from the terrace is breathtaking. All in all, In my opinion one of the best recommendations... More

Actually, to be more accurate, this rating should be about a 4.5 but that was not an option. We stayed here for 5 nights near the end of the season. As a result, we were the only couple in the place for the first three nights so we were upgraded to a superior suite. Ousmane was more than hospitable and... More

We stayed for 4 nights at PB in September and thoroughly enjoyed each and every moment of our stay. Ousmane was a great host and welcoming as soon as we arrived at the hotel, in fact he always went above and beyond to ensure we had memorable visit. He arranged day trips for us and suggested wonderful places for us... More

If you've ever heard the term "treated like royalty" it applies to Pallazzo Brandano. This was not like staying at a hotel it was like staying with friends that just happen to own a hotel. Osumane assured a good time for my wife and I taking us to wine tastings, cheese tastings and some of the best restaurants I've ever... More

My husband and I recently spent 4 nights at Palazzo Brandano based on the TripAdvisor reviews of many others and we weren't disappointed. Our host, Ousmane, set up wine, cheese, olive oil, and pork tastings that were fantastic. I'm sure we never would have had such personal attention if we had chosen just any ordinary hotel. He also arranged a... More

My wife and I stayed at PB for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We loved Petroio which was a tranquil village with beautiful views over the Tuscan countryside. Nowhere was too far away and driving to them was never a chore. PB itself was a beautiful little hotel containing everything we needed and our room was gorgeous. I... More

Use Palazzo Brandano (PB) as a base to easily access Montepulciano, Montalcino, Cortona and/or various hidden gems off the Tuscan “route naturale” within easy driving distance/time from the sleepy village of Petroio. Location is generally 15-45 km (20 – 60 minutes) from the well-known more tourist-centric towns of central/southern Tuscany. We were received with a warm welcome from Linda and... More
