Couldn't of wished for nicer surroundings, approach to the villa is stunning along with the view from the restaurant and rooms. Though we did not have dinner here breakfast was good even though the bread was a little hard. Lots to do in the area and it only took an hour to drive to Florence. Would recommend for a long...

The views alone made this more than a worthwhile break, but everything about this place is perfect. My wife and I booked five nights and spent time by the pool, biking to nearby villages, having a massage and visiting the nearby lake. I simply cannot recommend this enough if you want beautiful scenery in a relaxing and welcoming retreat with...

Dear Andyh021, Thank you for choosing our hotel and for leaving your beautiful comment. We agree with you, 5 stars don’t do justice to the views you can enjoy from Villa Petrischio! Even if your stay was rather short, we are happy that you managed to enjoy all what our Relais offers: sunshine, pooltime, biking, relaxing massages good food and...

The hotel out in the fields of Toscana with a fantastic view. We had a great stay, and enjoyed the hotel and the great food in the restaurant. We were taken care of by a friendly and professional staff in the reception as well as in the restaurant, and the chef did a great job. We love to come back.

Driving up the tree-lined drive to the 18th century house, you can tell this place is rather special. Our room was in a charming annexe around a courtyard with an ornamental pool. The room is spacious with even a small sitting area. The WiFi here is a little less robust than in the lounge of the main building. The grounds...

I was lucky to spend Valentine’s Day staying at Relais Villa Petrischio and I enjoyed every minute from being there.

Villa Petrischio is located about 20 minutes from Cortona. If you have ever seen Under the Tuscan Sun that is Cortona. The villa's location so fairly central for day trips to other hill towns of Tuscany and the many wonderful wineries. Market day in Calminusa was very disappointing. More like traveling flea market. Really don't bother.

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
