This is a wonderful little hotel in a very small town in Tuscany. If you are looking for a relaxing, romatic getaway, this would be a really great choice. The staff are excellent.. there are very helpful, they make your stay very special and try to cater to your every need. The food was the best that I had in...

i have been lucky enough to have stayed at many 5 star hotels in the world, none have surpassed the combination of comfort, hospitality, and service provided by Palazzo Brandano. Petroio is the perfect base for touring Tuscany - a short drive to all the hill towns - Cortona, Montapulciano, Montalcino, Pienza, and more. Wonderful to escape the crowds of...

We stayed at the Palazzo Brandano for four nights in early October.From the moment we arrived we knew this was going to be a special place. Ousmane took care of our car and gave us a glass of wine . After a wait of 10 minutes he took us to our room which he upgraded for us. This was the...

We chose Brandano as a central location for our five days in Tuscany. Not only was it convenient, but the staff and facilities were wonderful. If you enjoy driving, as we did, it is within an hour of everything from Florence to Siena, Assisi and almost everything else in the Province. Extremely knowledgeable Ousmane and Jorgen advised accurately on everywhere...

We stayed here for 2 nights during a 10 day trip to Italy. The town of Petroio is very small and there really isn't much to do there. It does give you a nice taste of local Tuscan life - minus tons of tourists. The good thing about Petroio is how you can stay somewhere very quiet and low-key but...

Palazzo Brandano offers you the chance to stay in a tiny, authentic Tuscan hill town virtually untouched by tourism. The town of Petroio – which takes less than 10 minutes to walk around – is perched on a steep hill, and has a butcher shop, a small pottery museum, two churches, and the homes of its residents. We enjoyed walking...

Palazzo Brandano (PB) and the incredible staff created a very memorable stay for my new husband and me during the Tuscan portion of our honeymoon in Italy. We wanted to have a 'home base' for part of our trip which was bookended by Rome and Venice, and we booked 5 nights at PB after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. We...

My partner and I just spent three nights at the Palazzo Brandano. We had an upgraded room with a Romeo balcony, beautiful furnishings, and excellent bath and were just delighted with the whole experience. The village is really tiny and quaint and the views from all around it are quintessential Tuscany. We had breakfast every morning on the terrace overlooking...

My husband and I honeymooned in Tuscany and Umbria at the beginning of August for a week and a half. We spent two nights at Palazzo Brandano toward the end of our trip and completely loved every moment. Upon arrival we were greeted by Ousmane who made us feel welcome and at home immediately. He lead us to the back...

We stayed at Palazzo Brandano for 3 days July 2-5, 2007. What a beautiful place. The staff were bending over backwards to help you with anything. They make reservations for dinner, the train, winery tours or anything else. The building has been remodelled and is gorgeous! Ancient but with all the latest technology. The lighting is exqisite. The breakfast was...
