We stayed at VP 3 years ago and had a wonderful week, the location is perfect if you want a secluded and quiet environment, at that time the all round service and restaurant was excellent.
However, on our return this year and after VP had accepted and confirmed our booking for 8 nights, some weeks later we were informed that we could not stay in the room we had specifically booked for the last 2 nights because they had a wedding.
On the upside VP is in a superbly quiet location and good for visiting all area,s of Tuscany, the rooms are good and spacious.
This time round there was downsides to our stay in addition to having to find somewhere else to stay for the last two nights. The service and meals from the restaurant were very poor, there was used glasses and crockery left out on the tables by the pool for two days, the breakfast was poor in choice and in location which had no air conditioning. We were also confronted with a timeshare rep coming to our room without invitation or prior notice, not what you should expect from a place like VP, it is above that style of commercialism or should be.
Don,t know if it has changed ownership or onsite management but whatever, it has not been to the benefit of the overall image and experience that VP should and used to offer it,s guests.
- 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
