“A gem ... Great service, excellent staff and beautiful setting.”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We met friends here for several days. Our Junior Suite was well appointed and the staff and service were wonderful. The grounds and pool are lovely. Breakfast was very nice with standard Italian meats, & cheeses, pastries & breads, fresh squeezed juice, yogurts, cereals and even eggs cooked two ways.

The reception staff and management were very helpful. They even booked private car service for us on short notice.

Service in the bar was wonderful from morning cappuccino to wine or cocktails later in the evening.

We stayed here during August 2013 on Honeymoon following a recommendation from a trusted Italian Travel Agency. We are lucky enough to be fairly well travelled and this place was up there with one of the best we have stayed at. It is a top 4 star and would be 5 if it had a gym and spa area. Tips:

1. Upgrade to a suite if you can-the rooms are super.
2. Hire a car-the location is quite remote.
3. The restaurant is great but there are some excellent venues locally so mix it up.
4. Cover up in the evenings-like most of Tuscany it is in the middle of the countryside so there are a few insects about in the evening.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: Upgrade to a suite if you can-it's worth it.

This is a superb place to stay for a few days or maybe a week.peaceful ,relaxed and with some of the best views you will ever get in a hotel.
Do check,though if they have any weddings as they will take over the place at the expense of the paying guests and carry no til the wee small hours.we are talking parties with over 150 people.
Having said that and it happened once on a Saturday night, all the other nights were quiet and calm.so,perhaps unfair to judge it for that but we were staying a week and had no prior warning .the only notice we had was asking us to move our car!for this reason alone we are giving four not five stars.
A great place from which to explore eastern Tuscany.
For reference it is about 45 minutes to Sienna ,a bit less to Arezzo,and a bit more to Perugia.the smaller towns of Montepulciano , Montalcino and Castiglioni are closer and a pretty easy drive
away.
Best restaurants within 20 minutes :
Osteria del teatro ,Cortona.
OsteMatto,Lucignano
L'Acquario,Castiglione del lago at the very top by castle
Degli Archi,Montepulciano.
All priced 80 ish euros.
Dinner at the hotel is just wonderful and with a good wine will cost you about €100.
Breakfast is typically continental,so get in first!
Rooms very comfortable .some noise from adjoining rooms,some of which was amusingly "nocturnal".but most people were early to bed and not too early to rise.Pool
is very nice but too cold for most.
Conclusion- avoid the weddings and you will be amazed and delighted and wanting more!
Staff very helpful especially at dinner time.
And Valentina is just gorgeous!

Room Tip: Try to overlook the rear of the property if in main building The bungalows look very nice.

Dear Guest,
thank you for writing your review on our hotel.
We are delighted that you have enjoyed your stay in Tuscany and at our location.
For the wedding we are really sorry , we always communicate the presence of an event first to the agencies who book for you and then to our guests at check-in.
In this case, we apologize, there will be certainly been a misunderstanding in giving you the information.
We hope you will be our guest again in the future.
Sincerely,

The best hotel of our stay in Italy as it provided the perfect background for Tuscany's natural beauty. My husband and I spent two weeks traveling throughout the country and still recount the beauty and splendor of Relais Villa Petrischio, its pleasant staff, impeccable facilities and unmatched setting.

Beatiful locations, nice swimming-pool, very lousy restaurang , wi-fi on and off and a waiter with the same spots on his trousers, day after day. His english was absent, two days a dog entertained the guests. The air condition did not work in the sleeping room, therefore my wife got 20 inseckt bites as a memory from the resort. And it was difficult to believe the excuses from the manager...
Great potensial, but not high class!

We had a wonderful stay at the Villa. We stayed in the Tuscan Suite and my wife and I renewed our marriage vows in the Chapel. Gianni, the photographer that the Villa arranged for us did an excellent job, and the scenery made for great pictures and lifelong memories. The restaurant did an outstanding job on the food for our celebration lunch (we just wish we could have made it to the second course; we were so full, we couldn't eat another thing). The Suite itself was wonderful. We had more than enough room for the four of us, and it was so nice having a full kitchen.

I had heard beautiful things about Tuscany, that is why my family and I went there. Now I share this feeling, and when I think of Tuscany I remember the wonderful sunset at Petrischio. That view was really amazing.

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
