Incredible bucolic viewsPosted Jul 27, 2012 on Hotels.com
The Villa is situated on a hill overlooking the Tuscan countryside, 10km from Cortona, 40 min from Sienna and 30 min from Montepulciono wine country. It's gorgeous. Villa is spacious, pool 10-7pm, restaurant on location and breakfast each morning is available (rated moderate). By far, it's the location that sells the villa as well as the villa itself. Professional nice staff.Although receiption's english is not good, there are a couple of staff people during the day to address touring questions specifically. Drawback: it's hard to find but this would be true of any out of the way tuscan villa and I think we likely saw some magnificent countryside (different way back each time). I'd go back.

A place to forget the worldPosted Aug 10, 2011
Once you get there(Google Maps had the hotel in the wrong location) it is a great place to forget about the world for a few days. If you dont like looking out over sunflower fields with italian hill towns shimmering in the distance this is not a place for you. the place is made by te service of the senori who manages the restaurant by the pool. he does it all and makes the service effortless so that he doesnt compete with the quiet time. IF you like to ride bikes, bring your own. the Hotel has two but if you are over 6 feet tall you will feel like bozo the clown doing Tuscany. The riding is awesome with great scenery and little traffic. All in all it was the perfect place to put a brain into neutral.

Although the hotel was nice and had a very pretty setting the food we had at the hotel was not only very expensive the food was horrible. For a four star hotel I would have expected the food to be good. I would possibly recommend the hotel to others but I wouldn't recommend they eat at the restaurant. We were a party of two and there was one other party of 5 or 6 and they got very good service. The waiter totally ignored us.

Great Farm StayPosted Oct 14, 2010
Great hotel that is a bit out of the busy city life. Awesome setting with great service and very helpful to any requests. Restaurant has great food with enough choice to select from. Would not recommend a visit to this hotel without a rental car. Have no reservations recommending this hotel to anyone.

Fabulous view!Posted Oct 7, 2010
We were thrilled at the location, view and quality of our accommodations at the Villa Petrischio! For the price, it could not have been better. We will return.

Beautiful SettingPosted Sep 6, 2010 on Hotels.com
Had we known how ideal the setting was, we would have stayed longer. Next time. Beautiful villa atop the hill overlooking the valleys, mountains, Olive orchards and grape vines. Peaceful pool. Nice restaurant. Only comment is that the lighting in the restauarant is BRIGHT. They could use less bulds and a dimmer switch. That said, the food was very good and the views great.

Piece of ParadisePosted Jul 13, 2010
I came for rest and relaxation and inspiration, and I got all of that and more. The hotel is beautiful, the staff the best anywhere I have seen, and food at La Terrazza amazing. (I simply couldn't get enough of the risotto.) The grounds are like something out of a Jane Austen novel, and I loved my morning walks/runs. It is quiet, and perfect for someone seeking solitude or a romantic stay. I can't wait to go back.

stunning!Posted Oct 5, 2009
We spent 4 nights here and everything from the staff, location, rooms and ambience was over the top. I highly recommend it - the views are incredible and it felt like being in paradise in Tuscancy - yes, a bit hard to find but it's magic once you do.

Not like your traditional hotel, felt like staying at a private Estate...Posted Sep 30, 2009
Beautiful place, great service. Would definitely go back. But, as other travelers mentioned it's very hard to find this place, eventually you will, after getting lost and with the help of local people. The hotel location is very convenient, it is one hour drive to Florence, Siena and San Gimignano.
