Castelfiorentino, Tuscany
The Fattoria Il Petriccio is located on the hills of Valdelsa, 2 miles from Castelfiorentino (Florence) the ideal starting point to visit the Tuscan art cities: half an hour drive from Firenze, Siena, Lucca, Pisa, Volterra and San Gimignano it is really located in the heart of Tuscany. Our guests can also enjoy the countryside life and they can relax in the 30 hectares estate tasting the local white wine Trebbiano and the famous Vinsanto (a 5 years old dessert wine ) as well as the Olive oil produced with the old cold pressing method.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Paolo and Francesca were great hosts and we had a lovely holiday. They have a central location to visit the sites and the local town offers good facilities. As modernised farmworkers flats, the apartments have a little rustic charm and are not suited to people who expect 5 Stars. Everything is well maintained and we prefer the real thing; even...

The accommodation is situated in a series of converted farm outbuildings and is adequate, without being luxurious. An electric kettle would have been welcome. Paolo was kind enough to make a washing machine available to us, but the property would be improved by having this facility in...

Management response:

Your review is totally unfair: we did offer you extra heating that you were not willing to pay. Heating is not inlcluded in our prices. All the rest is simply not true: next time you are in Tuscany you should book a 5 stars hotel.
