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
Best restaurants within 20 minutes :
Osteria del teatro ,Cortona.
L'Acquario,Castiglione del lago at the very top by castle
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!
- 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
