The Estate of Petroio
Set within a 900 acre estate in the hills above Rufina within easy reach of Florence; on The Estate Petroio resides three stunning residences, the elegant 12th century Villa and the two stone farmhouses, Borgo of Petroio and Casa Arianna. The perfect balance has been created by their owner, a professional caterer and event designer for the wealthy, preserving original features while incorporating 21st century comforts.
The Villa; the centrepiece of the wine and olive oil estate; boasts two self-sufficient wings, one suitable for mobility restricted persons, very comfortably and tastefully furnished as the main house. Modern bathrooms all en suite, compliment the air-conditioned bedrooms. A large open plan living/dining room with a central fireplace and panoramic windows offer breath-taking views, a professional kitchen and dining area have just been added, the perfect setting to host a special event for up to 40 persons.
The Borgo; main house with guest house just along the way have lovingly been restored with a new lease of life. Like the Villa the same concept has been applied, air-conditioned bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, large, bright and airy living areas not to mention the all-important plain air living area and al fresco dining. Casa Arianna; lies about half way between La Villa and Il Borgo. A rustic Tuscan charm with spacious living areas with terracotta floors, two sitting rooms and large air-conditioned bedrooms with parquet flooring each with an en suite bathroom complimented with beamed ceilings. A dining loggia lies to the rear comfortable seating eight people.
Not one but two large private fenced swimming pools, a football/soccer pitch and astro-turf tennis court ensure enjoyment whether it be a dip in the pool on hot summer days or a private tournament on court. For lovers of nature the estate provides extensive opportunities to wonder amongst the unspoilt countryside, a haven of peace and tranquillity.
