Relais Villa Petrischio
Ranked #14 of 24 Hotels in Cortona
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 July 2013

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.

We spent five nights in this old villa set in acres of its own grounds. It has been beautifully converted into a hotel of great quality and style. The level of service from all the hotel staff was excellent and the room facilities 1st class. There is an attractive outdoor pool and good terrace area.
The restaurant is operated by a separate organisation, presumably franchised, and did not quite come up to the standards of the hotel. The food was very good but the complete absence of spoken English, meant that the service,while efficients, lacked warmth and charm.

We stayed in this hotel early August. The hotel is located on top of a hill with spectucalar views. The room was OK for the three of us. The bed was comfortable, the room was nicely decorated in local style. The bathroom was clean and functional. The AC was working and required as the it was 35 degrees plus. Wireless is available at no charge. The hotel is about 20-25 km from Cortona, Montepulciano and close to the expressway to Perugia. Ideal for daytrips.

The staff at the hotel was very friendly (at the reception, the ladies cleaning the room).

Unfortunately, we had very bad experience with the breakfast. This not only on the first day but also on the following 4 days. The lady in charge was extremely rude. We wanted to have breakfast outside near the pool but that was not possible although there was nobody. Then I heard her complaining in French to somebody outside not knowing that we could understand French. Then there was no bread, the same cake appeared on the buffet for several days, empty trays were not refilled etc... Amazing, how one person can destroy our otherwise lovely stay.

My fiancé and I booked a week here to have a quick break before our wedding. The accommodation is absolutely beautiful, rooms lovely and better than we could have imagined. Its a very romantic setting. The room and pool area are spotlessly clean and there is always a member of staff doing something to make it look as lovely as it does! The cleaning staff do a brilliant job and we even saw one taking rose clippings from the garden and found them on our bed that night. It's little things like that which make this a lovely venue. The views are breathtaking. I honestly dont like to complain and think some people look for issues but I feel I should mention a couple of things! Firstly, the restaurant serve the same limited menu for both lunch and dinner, every day (incredibly boring). Breakfast was pretty bad, some sort of eggs and cured meat. The egg not even kept warm, or cool for that matter. We got our own food at the supermarket even though we had paid B&B rates. There was not a lot of places to go near by, the nearest town is at least 20minutes drive. Overall, the food was very disappointing. We asked if we could eat our breakfast outside on the terrace on our first morning but were told really quite rudely no because there was no table cloth! Secondly, we had an evening flight so on our departure day we had arranged to stay by the pool until the afternoon and shower in the facilities. As we were relaxing by the pool at around 11am we were asked by the receptionist to leave the hotel straight away because a wedding was taking place. Totally gobsmacked we quickly showered and as we were getting dressed the receptionist came back to tell us we had to leave right now as the wedding was starting. We really couldn't believe it and my fiancé expressed our annoyance when the manager came over. She said we could stay as long as we wanted. It was too late, we had already showered and gathered our bits ready to leave. We really wouldn't have minded if we were told the day before that we'd have to leave, we would have understood (we are getting married next month and have exclusive use of the hotel so I'd be very annoyed if there were members of the public using the facilities). We'd have just arranged to do something else for the day but the way it was dealt with was simply disgusting. I would like to say though that the manager was very friendly and tried to accommodate us but it was just to late. We did recieved an email after we complained about both issues offering us a free meal in the same restaurant on our next visit!

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
