Outstanding Villa to stay at! The staff and owners are very special hosts that made our 6 night stay so memorable this summer! Fun and easy walk to the historic town of Bucine. What a beautiful venue plus scenic area we shared with family and friends! Special thanks to Jois, Maria and the entire Villa Petrea staff! Fino a quando ci incontriamo nuovamente...

La struttura si trova non lontano da Roma, poco vicino all'uscita dell'autostrada. Ci sono stato con alcuni amici e tanti bambini e ognuno di noi si è portato a casa un ricordo meraviglioso. Normalmente la struttura è affittata da americani e stranieri, ma in realtà è perfetta anche per gli italiani. Le camere sono tante, con soluzioni diverse, letti aggiuntivi, etc... Ognuna ha il bagno privato e privacy rispetto alle altre. La cucina è grande e ben attrezzata, così come il salone interno (con posti seduti per 20 persone), ma il punto forte è l'esterno, con la grande piscina, il porticato con i divani, quello con il tavolo, il forno per le pizze, il biliardino, il ping pong, il barbecue. Per non dimenticare la piccola spa con sauna, bagno turco e idromassaggio con vista sulle colline toscane. Ultimo, ma non ultimo, merita una menzione Jois, il proprietario della villa. Presente sia prima che durante il soggiorno, gentile, solare, divertente, disponibile, generoso. Ci siamo sentiti trattati da amici e una sera ci ha preparato la pizza nel forno a legna e l'abbiamo mangiata con la sua famiglia. Insomma: consigliatissimo!

4 German families (10 Kids) together in 1 house for 1 week! Crazy! Impossibile? We did it! Only possible in a wonderful place like Villa Petrea with our great host Jois and his family ! After a very long exhausting trip we all were so happy for choosing this spot that offered all we needed: a huge dining room and a well equipped kitchen, nice & clean rooms (each with bathrooms), a romantic garden with a lot of opportunities to rest and relax, but also space to play football and badminton, and last but not least: a great big refreshing pool& spa area! We had a wonderful tasty Tuscan diner by Maria, Clarissa& Jois showed us how to make real Italian Pizza in the Stone oven! Jois also organized a very interesting and joyful trip to the winery Poggio Molina where we spent a very funny evening with nice People. Paintball .....ouch, ok, was big fun, too. 🤣 Mans thanks to Jois, his family (especially Clarissa) and his staff for all your service- we had a great and unforgettable holiday! Best for you all! Stay healthy ! Yours Jasmin

Wir waren im August 2020 zu Gast in der Villa Petrea und haben dort einen unvergesslichen Urlaub verbracht. Wir waren 8 Erwachsene und 11 Kinder und Teenager. Der große Pool und die unterschiedlichen Aufenthaltsbereiche im Innen- und Außenbereich ermöglichten für alle Altersgruppen einen Rückzugsort. Das Grundstück ist umzäunt, so dass die Kinder sich frei bewegen konnten. An den beiden großen Essplätzen im Innen- und Außenbereich hatten alle zusammen Platz. Der Vermieter Jois hat für alle Altersklassen perfekte Ferienerlebnisse organisiert. Wir kommen gerne wieder.

I'm still riding high from our week-long Yoga and Writing Retreat in Tuscany at Villa Petrea! Jois was amazing and helped me put together an incredible holiday for 14 of us from around the US. From the moment we arrived, the group rejoiced at the beauty of the villa, the landscape, and the facilities. Balconies for reading and relaxing or quiet conversation, a tented area for yoga and writing, an outdor large patio for banquet meals prepared by Maria. The food was superb, the wine available in house excellent and well priced, Jois's company charming and joyful (he obviously loves his job!). We were met at the train station and upon arrival we began our week with prosceco, cheese and bread. Jois helped me arrange mini bus service for our trips to surrounding areas and set up with an excellent hiking guide and visit to a nearby winery. I've been leading retreats for over 10 years and this was the best experience yet. More vacation than a retreat but we had a vibrantly joyful time! Bellisimo!

My sisters and I stayed at Villa Petrea with our familes for one week end of July, 2019. We had 13 people in the villa. The villa was as pictured online. It is a very well updated villa with a huge pool and a separate building with a Jacuzzi, steamroom and spa. My 11 year old son was thrilled to find a full size soccer net and ball that allowed him to play all week. There was also a ping pong table we all enjoyed. The villa is set in a picturesque Tuscan setting. Just gorgeous view from the portico and outdoor seating with Cyprus and olive trees all around the building. By far the best part was our host Jois. He did way more than any VRBO owner we ever rented from before. Not only did he meet us upon arrival to show us around but he stayed in contact with us and arranged vineyard visits, dinners outs, pizza delivery, even helped us with train schedule and parking to Florence. We felt like we were with family in Tuscany. To top it off he showed up our last night with a birthday cake and candles for our daughter who turned 14 while on vacation. I also don't want to forget the wonderful cooking of Maria, who made dinner for all 13 of us two nights. She would sing in the kitchen and pick fresh herbs from the garden for our meals. It was like having dinner at an Italian aunt's kitchen. No need to search for villas. If you want a Tuscan vacation just book Villa Petrea!

We have just returned from 3 nights at Villa Petrea with 23 girls for our amazing friend's hen party. The villa and the whole holiday exceeded our expectations in every possible way! Jois was so unbelievably helpful in the run up to the event and helped us plan a weekend we will all remember forever. He also made sure that everything ran smoothly while we were there and gave us the biggest most fun mix of party & relaxation we could have ever hoped for. If you are thinking of booking Villa Petrea, do not hesitate!! It is simply AMAZING and the most beautiful destination with breathtaking views thrown in. Thank you Jois!
