“Wedding Tuscan magic!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Our daughter was married here last weekend and we cannot praise the place and the staff enough! It is quite simply, amazing! The staff could not have been more helpful, the chef's food (Walter by name) is sublime and the head waiter did not seem to ever sleep! The rooms are beautiful and the pool area has a view across the Tuscan hills that cannot be beaten. We took over the hotel on this occasion and everyone was so impressed! However we also stayed in October to check it out and were looked after as individual guests just as well. This is a very special place!

Room Tip: The rooms in the annex are more modern and we stayed in Calypso which had a gorgeous view and sunken...

We had a wonderful stay for a week - the location is absolutely stunning with the most incredible views. The food offered at dinner is fantastic, breakfast had more options than we expected - breads, ham cheese, eggs, cereals, yoghurt, fruit salad, pastries etc.

You definitely need a car - everything was a little bit further than we thought. Great location for being able to visit all the surrounding cities.

Only downside we found was there wasn't any light lunch available so if you're by the poolside we had to either choose from the dinner menu or go out. Also that if you dont want to eat at the hotel you have to drive at least 20/25 minutes to get to a restaurant.

We would definitely recommend the hotel and if visiting the area again would stay there.

Fantastic hotel and venue in the south of Tuscany. The views and facilities were amazing. The rooms were excellent and absolutely spotlessly clean. Ideally situated just 10 minutes from the beautiful town of Cortona. I would strongly recommend a car to get around and explore.

We stayed 3 nights and loved every part of our stay! When we had to leave, we felt like we left friends. Best food by Chef Walter of every place we stayed across Europe! A charming, lovely place! The view was breathtaking and the places around to visit were great and only a short drive. Everyone was wonderful from Reception to Restaurant!

We spent a day there in summer 2013, after a long road trip across Europe and it was the best part of our vacation . Excellent landscape, marvelous view to Tuscany, the food and the restaurant was superb as well as the room service. We will visit again soon.

Stayed 4nights in July 13. Wonderful location, everything we hoped it would be.
excellent venue for touring locally, Cortona, Sienna, Montepulcianno. Train station in Cortona made travel to Florence so easy, only 1.5 hrs and relatively cheap. staff friendly and courteous.
We drove down from Pisa and found getting around no problem. I would thoroughly recommend it for the relaxation and the whole Tuscany experience

Room Tip: beautiful setting and everything we hoped it would be. very central for all local sightseeing.

We spent a week here on a time-share. Good location for touring area. Dinners out in Cortona most nights. Apartment was charming, with wood-burning fireplace, also washer/dryer in apartment and nice place to sit out and good views. Problem with the off-season is no bar/restaurant open, and the pool and sitting out would have been lovely if a bit warmer. They shopped head for us based on our shopping list which worked great, as we had breakfast in each day. No one on site on weekends or evenings this time of year which was also not optimal. Very pretty place which would be ideal in warmer season.

Room Tip: Our apartment had views from our sitting area and windows.

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
