We spent one week in the hotel Palazzo Brandano with our 2 children early August and had a fantastic time. The accomodation and food were great. We actually chose to have most of our dinners at the hotel as the food was so fresh and Ousmane had a great selection of wines. Our kids even ordered a chocolate fondant that was not on the menu.
The breakfast was all you could ask for: freshly baked cakes, fresh bread, fresh fruit salad, hot chocolate and cereals, eggs...
After having spent one week in a 5 stars hotel with Spa in the area, we finally discovered Tuscany thanks to Ousmane who took us to great places including an olive oil factory, win and ham tasting and pecorino (cheese) factory. ousmane also recommended a couple of restaurants in the area where we met locals.
Overall a fanstatic experience and we will be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in the biggest suite on the first floor. Great room. Quiet and with air conditioning.

My family and I ate here on two nights and we could not have had a better experience of Tuscan food and hospitality. Idyllically set with breathtaking views over the Tuscan hills, the two evenings we spent here were fantastic. The food was amazing, and Ousmane organised a great cooking class where I learnt how to cook a five course meal at very short notice. I thoroughly recommend staying here to anyone wanting to visit Tuscany-perfect for a romantic break but also for families. Ousmane is the perfect host and made our meals so memorable. This was the highlight of our holiday in Tuscany and I look forward to staying here in the future.

We travel around in Italy quite a lot and we must really say that this is a special place with special people
You can't get better accomodation anywhere and when it comes to service this place is special...
Not only is Ousmane and team are making the stay very comfortable but it's also the relaxing atmosphere that they create in this place. It isvfelt everywhere - in the lobby, the view, the open doors, the outside area...

We stayed at Palazzo Brandano from 8/26-9/4, and were just blown away by the service, food, atmosphere, scenery, and the list goes on. The dynamic duo of Linda and Ousmane made our stay truly memorable. Both Linda and Ousmane went out of their way to make our stay exceptional. From arranging wine, cheese, olive oil tastings, to restaurant recommendations nothing was too much for Ousmane to arrange. He even had us follow him in his car for hard to find tastings. Where else would you get that service?? The location is a great base to tour Tuscany with Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Umbria, etc. close by. Our room was large and spacious and nicely appointed with beautiful architectural features. The food in the restaurant was exceptional. We can especially recommend the baked stuffed zucchini flowers, shoulder of rabbit and heavenly penna cotta. Dinner on the terrace while the sun was setting or having a glass of Prosecco after a day of sight seeing was breathtaking. We could go on and on, but go experience for yourself! We will definitely be back!!!!

the hotel deserve four stars or more. There is charming Ousmane who greats a guest in any language and can arrange almost anything you want to see or do of a very good quality. The setting in the small town of Petroio is elegant without being ostentatious. Each room is nicely decorated and is only surpassed by the food. Imagine watching the sun set on a veranda above the tuscan valley then eating dinner with a rustic lantern on each table. My meal included baked stuffed zucchini flowers, perfectly prepared gnocchi and a divine penna cotta. All accented by superb wine chosen by Ousmonne the manager. Would return in a heart beat.

Room Tip: check out a choice on their web site
