Ousmane and his staff, especially Linda, could not have been nicer and more helpful. They treated us like family and provided us with the warmest of welcomes. We didn't arrive back from an emergency trip to Rome until 2am, and Linda was up waiting for us. A kindness that was so appreciated.
The Palazzo is beautiful with spectacular rooms, views, gardens and meals. Upon arrival we were greated by the 3 tenors singing and an evening glass of wine on the terrace where we watched a magnificent sunset over the hills and olive groves of Tuscany. We enjoyed dinner at Palazzo Brandano which was gourmet and exquisitely prepared and served.
Petroio is a darling little town and, after being in Rome, Florence and Sienne, it was a welcome breath of fresh air and a pure Italian experience void of millions of tourists.
Ousmane told us of an Olive Festival in the neighboring town of Trequanda. We loved the festival where we met the local Italians selling olive oil and cheeses. Ousmane was happy to help us in every way.
I would return to Palazzo Brandano in a heart beat. I miss Ousmane and Linda and feel honored to have met them.
