Me and my wife had been to Tuscany in April '13. We decided to move around several places in Tuscany. Based on the reviews on Tripadvisor, we selected Palazzo Brandano as one of our bases. We spent 2 nights at this lovely place. On the first day as we drove into the tiny town of Petroio, we were intimidated by the extremely narrow streets and as the lady in the GPS went on telling that our destination was just ahead, we were worried about squeezing through the narrow lanes of the village. As we pulled up in front of the hotel, the door opened and we were assisted with getting our luggage out of the car and were escorted to a parking space near the hotel. The hotel has direct access to a parking lot which is a few steps below and quite easy to access whenever we took out the car on several trips across the region. We were shown around the hotel and the rooms with a nice chilled glass of Prosecco in our hands. We had been upgraded to the Botticelli room, which I must say must be one of the best rooms in the hotel. Ousmane was our gracious host during our stay. We had a wonderful dinner with some wonderful wine and a nice rabbit dish. Ousmane also made a plan for us to visit the nearby villages of Pienza and Montepulciano with excellent recommendations for La Chiusa restaurant and 2 wineries.
Overall, we enjoyed the wonderful personalized service and wont hesitate at all in recommending others to stay at this place while vacationing in Tuscany.
