Beautifully decorated and maintained. It showed the love and dedication they had in up keeping the place. A home away from home.

The estate is lovely. The houses are beautifully decorated, and the grounds well maintained. The views of the Tuscan countryside are very special. The owners have added lots of features to keep guests entertained. Young and old will enjoy the estate. We found the location a bit more isolated than we expected, so getting anywhere for shopping or day trips was more of a hassle than we would have liked. The drive to the Villa is challenging. But once you are there, it is amazing.

The Estate of Petroio is nothing less of a paradise on Earth! We rented the whole estate for 1 week in June and it was the perfect place for our family reunion. The location is wonderful and all the rooms are beautiful. Every single member of the group loved their room and everything about those houses and the surroundings. The facilities are great, it has everything to offer that you can think of, and if it is not there the wonderful staff will just get if for you! The estate is big enough for everybody to be able to enjoy time together, or find a quiet corner when it gets too crowded! Edoardo and the whole team at Petroio are extremely helpful and professional in all their work, and you can easily see how much they care about their property. We almost didn’t leave Petroio the whole week, we just didn't feel like spending any time away from this wonderful place. We also ordered dinners for the whole group most of the nights, for which I am very grateful. The chefs are great and the meals they prepared for us were just wonderful. It is also good to keep in mind that even though the next grocery shop is only 8 km away, it takes up to half an hour to drive there, through very narrow and difficult roads. Dear Edoardo and the whole team at Petroio - thank you very much for helping us make this the perfect reunion for the big Icelandic family! I am hoping and praying we can return one day!

Very professional service I rented Villa Petroio through Tuscany Now and More. Their service is extremely professional and trustworthy, everything we decided turned out just the way discussed. I can really recommend their service and I would defiantly use Tuscany Now and More again the next time I am planning the perfect vacation in Italy!

The Estate was OMG, the website and pictures didn't do it justice. everything was just perfect from the magnificent views, the residences, to the staff. so much to do on site. it was the perfect holiday. Our host Eduardo couldn't do enough for us and anything we asked for he delivered.

Hi Eduardo, We are finally back in Sydney with the last family arriving today. Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that we all had a wonderful week in Petroio, it totally exceeded our expectations. The property is magnificent, we absolutely loved it. We appreciate that so much love and dedication has gone into maintaining the property and on top of that all the little touches of family history. It’s an amazing place and we’re so pleased to have had the opportunity to experience it. I am already starting to think about organising a Foodies trip there for folks from Sydney and Singapore. Many thanks again, Audra

Dear Edoardo, this slice of heaven surpassed all our expectations - there were many given 24 Australians had been planning this week here for 18 moths! The photos don't do it justice. The attention to detail of every beautiful room is delightful. We should also say how incredibly clean the place is! Thank you for allowing us to stay here- enabling a dream of mine to come true - to be surrounded by family and friends in Tuscany for my 50th birthday. Wishing you and your team very best! Wished, Jenny Granger Sydney, Australia

We absolutely LOVED everything. When booking online, often the venue doesn't live up to the photos, the description, the commentary, etc. Virtually everything at The Estate of Petroio far exceeded the online descriptions and reviews and far exceeded our expectations. From the moment we arrived and were welcomed by the staff to the moment we said our farewells, our entire group felt as though they were somewhere beyond paradise. The estate and each and every room are beautifully appointed. The scenery is spectacular. The on-site activities are numerous and were enjoyed by all. The staff was motivated to serve. They were warm, friendly, helpful, and willing to do most anything to meet the needs of their guests. The food was exquisite and the food presentations were spectacular. The service was exceptional. My daughter's wedding dreams came true here and our experience was nothing short of utter joy!

Greetings Edoardo, It was such a pleasure meeting you and experience the pleasantries of an Italian life still. Your estate is one that I will relish sharing stories about for years to come. I do hope at some time in the future Todd and I will make our way back to your area. Fondly, Laura Caron-Parker

To Edoardo, thank you for this absolutely beautiful, serene setting of Petroio. Our family reunion - 24 of us in all! - was just perfect in this delightful location in Tuscany. We loved that we had plenty of space to relax, swim, play tennis, futbol (soccer!), bocce, this fabulous professional kitchen to create amazing meals or to enjoy watching Francesco and Assiz cook for us... I could go on all day about this little piece of heaven you and your team have created here. I'm so glad we found your place online - it was exactly what we were hoping for. Next time we come back maybe there will be another generation to bring along!! All the best to you and your family, Sara Jeanne, Mat, Catherine, Gillian, Tessa, Max and Eliza Gulley (Florida, USA) Kate, Kabir, Lola, Kiran and Henry Singh (Brooklyn, NY) Stanzione family (WA), Derickson (NC), and Cebulash family (Dayton, OH)

Dear Edoardo, I don't know where to begin. For me, life is about experiences and the experience at Petroio was life altering. To have the opportunity to share time with family, my children, my wife, our friends in this environment will always be cherished. Some have called this a "once in a lifetime trip". I don't think that is the case. We will be back to see you, Aziz, Francesco and the experience of Petroio. Most importantly you have been the most gracious host imaginable. If not for you, this time here would been different. You are special you are a gifted individual who wants to create experiences. And for us, you have done exactly that. Until we meet again, Love The Martino Family

Edoardo and your wonderful team Azziz, Francesco, Missy and all the others, from the first to the last, every moment, every sight, upstairs and down, from room to room a new treasure to be seen, each window such a view and so many delights. A dream wedding we had planned and deliver it you did, every magical moment from the beginning to the end. Our guest don't want to leave, your hospitality and care to each and everyone especially mummy we can't thank you enough. Your staff the food, the vision and the delivery all perfect! We certainly will be back to explore a whole let none. Everything I'd hope for and so much more, magical! Thank you! Gail

Dear Edoardo, there is no words to describe how wonderfully amazing this place is! Without knowing what to expect we were treated as a part of your own family which everyone as a guest should feel! Your hospitality is amazing and so professional. We loved every minute of it and felt like a dream. Shame we had to "wake up" and leave this beautiful place. Francesco and Aziz and a cooking school was so much fun!! Surely if we ever get a change we shall return. All the best, Johnny and Korana

Dear Edoardo, Thank you for making our dream of a perfect wedding in Tuscany come true! We love the property and the scenery. You and your staff are amazing. We can tell that a lot of thought has been put into the design of the Estate and it came out perfectly. All of our guests had a wonderful time and the week passed by so quickly. Thank you again for taking such great care of us. We look forward to staying at Petroio again soon! Warmest regards, Stephen Thomas and Oren (New York)

We are leaving today and we wish you every success in your business. All the best!!

Just wanted to send you a quick thank you for making our stay last week so memorable. Jill and I had an amazing time and the rest of our guests can't stop talking about how amazing your property is. Jill and I have been in Italy for two weeks, traveled through Tuscany, Venice, Verona, Turino and Piedmont (Alps). Without a doubt, the meals prepared by Francesco were the best of our trip. We are so happy we chose your Villa for our marriage. Thank you! If you and your family are ever in Massachusetts or Connecticut we would be honored to have you as our guests. Hope to see you again soon! Chao! ------ Dear Edoardo, Jillian and Chris wedding was like a fairy tale! All of us who come here to Tuscany to celebrate with them have had the most memorable week of our lives. Villa di Petroio is a place of heaven on hearth. The views, the vineyards + olive trees, the wild rosemary and sage, the incredible food, wonderful Aziz, it will all remain with us forever! We are grateful to you + your staff for making this week incredibly special for us and especially for Jillian and Chris. Con affetto from all of us from the US and Germany.

Edoardo and villa Family, The experience here in Tuscany has been one of the most memorable and cherished moments of my life. The wedding was better than I could have dreamed. When we return to Canada, a meal will be hard to measure after the mouth watering food that was prepared here. Aziz has truly made dinners a warm experience where everyone is family. we cannot truly express our gratitude to the fullest extent that we feel. Thank you for making our wedding and our stay at Petroio perfect. Dave (groom) and Janell (bride) --- Edoardo family + staff, what an amazing villa and an amazing experience! our first trip to Italy will never be forgotten. We will treasure the memories we made here. The lush surroundings, the exquisite meals and the friends we share it all with. Petroio is like a dream! Our warmest regards, Wendy and Voytek Lukasiewicz

Thank you for opening you lovely home to our group from the states. Laurie and I enjoyed our time at the villa very much. The kitchen was fun to cook in, the gathering room fun to visit with friends, and the grounds were a joy to explore and draw in the Tuscan air. We also very much enjoyed the wine and olive oil. We look forward to the December delivery of both. We will be reaching out to you next year to get another shipment.  Again, thank you for the hospitality.

Edoardo, it is difficult to thank you enough for your hospitality and generosity with your time. The careful planning and attention to detail paid off in spades, as we say. The drivers,we all love Giuseppe!, dinners in Florence, Roberto the tour guide, the welcome, the wineries, the omelets every day, the dinners, the al fresco pizza, Lisa and Paolo - it was all such a delight. We all agree the highlight of the trip was Frescobaldi and the special lunch at the villa and Stefania's graciously hosting us all.We recommend for future guests Prosecco Tennis, it gives new meaning to the game. Your home is beautiful and the setting glorious, we look forward to coming together once again in Dallas for the Christmas party, for fiesta italiana and raising a glass of your wine and looking back at what the Rimmers called "the best 50th Birthday Party ever!"

What a fabulous house in an amazing spot. 30 of us took over the Estate of Petroio, friends aged 16 to 60 (ish). We cannot fault the house; so well equipped and so much space for everyone to relax and chill. We recommend the Mulino a Vento across the mountain, a fantastic restaurant, the pizza restaurant in the square in Rufina and, of course, the in-house caterers who did an amazing job. Thank you Edoardo for sharing your special home. Great memories with great friends.We will be back.

A superb estate in amazing countryside. The owners have furnished the houses with love and entrusted guests with some beautiful personal touches which makes this place unique. Plenty of space for a party of 30. En suites in all bedrooms. Very well equipped. Nothing too much trouble, so catered evenings, taxis into town, suggestions for activities locally etc, all can be arranged with ease in advance. Can't think of anything we would change.

We brought our four sons and twelve grandchildren to celebrate our Golden wedding. We were not disappointed. The ambiance and the service were wonderful and all the party from 78 to 18 months appeared to enjoy it equally. Thank you Edoardo for allowing us to share it with you.

If you are looking for a family holiday, to suit all ages, (we are 79yrs - 21 months.) you should look no further. There is so much to do here, swimming, tennis, football, table tennis, pool, boules, equally many secluded cool areas inside and outside for that quiet read, in such a beautiful place, with very friendly and helpful staff, who look after us so very well.

I had the blessing of attending a retreat at Petroio in October of 2014. Although I had never been before, from the moment I stepped foot on the lush grounds, I felt as if I was experiencing a long awaited homecoming, a returning. There is an energy about the buildings and grounds that is profoundly transnational; the word magic does not do it justice. I returned with my own group this past September and was so joyed to share it all with my own group--they were not only elegantly and superbly stewarded but warmly embraced by Edoardo, not only fed but nourished by Riccardo, and left the experience feeling renewed, refreshed and more deeply connected to themselves and those around them. I feel as if I was treated like royalty but also that they, and the rest of the staff there, are my family now. I will be returning next year in May AND September to recreate the magic...until then I am counting the days until I am "home" again.

Sehr schönes Anwesen in einem mir bis dato nicht bekannten Teil der Toskana. Profesioneller Service seitens des Besitzers Eduoardo. Dieser war schon beim Vorbesuch im Januar als auch dann kurz vor und während des Besuches aussergewöhnlich. Auch der initial befürchtete Nachteil der zwei Häusergruppen hat sich vor Ort nicht bestätigt - vielleicht sogar ein Vorteil bei einer Gruppenstärke von 28 Personen. Alles funktionierte vor Ort und die drei bestellten Abendessen plus das Pizzaevents waren gut bis sehr gut von den Köchen zubereitet worden. Das Wildschwein-Gulasch war outstanding! Wir waren sehr zufrieden und werden sicherlich wiederkehren. Grazie

Dear Edoardo, When I booked La Villa and Il Borgo for our family reunion I didn't suppose they could be as perfect as the website portrayed. But I was wrong. When we arrived and you showed us around the property I could not believe that you were so generous as to allow others to enjoy this amazing place. The website doesn't lie, there are no hidden catches, everything is perfect from the estate and its location to the staff, and the organisation. You can be sure we will be back.

Started with six family members, gradually became 19 - aged 7 yrs to 84. Grappa Professor loves the wine, his five children, spouses and grandchildren and their other halves all enjoyed this magnificent location, the beautiful houses, garden, pools. Pizza night, an enormous success! Edoardo along with our Anne organised various activities my favorite was the wine tasting, our youngest member may have turned himself in to a prune the amount of time he spent in the pool. We all have enjoyed the views, the weather the entire estate, a big thank you to Edoardo our chefs, housekeeper and our Anne. I am writing this under a full moon over such lovely countryside. A crystal clear sky following yesterdays thunderstorm. So sad to be leaving I hope all the visitors who follow us enjoy themselves as much as we have. Lorraine, part of the Loretto party.

Dear Edoardo, Now that we are home, we all want nothing else but to speak of our time at Petroio. I hate to think it was a once in a lifetime vacation, but I can't imagine duplicating it. Your property suited our family so well, and I must say you were right in saying we would want more time spent at the villa. Thank you for your hospitality and for seeing to all our needs, while still giving us the freedom and privacy to enjoy being together. I will return often in my mind to the peace and beauty and laughter we knew there.

Our extended family scattered around the globe, hold reunions from time to time. The last one held near Bordeaux was superb so Petroio had to be very good to top that. Although it was a very different experience, it did that! Edoardo is a master organizer and never dropped a single ball. When small things went wrong, they were fixed immediately. The food was nothing short of amazing and plentiful. We have nothing but praise for this wonderful place and its staff. The location is unique and beautiful, even the rustic windy road to get there adds to the charm. The ancient buildings have been wonderfully preserved just adding every modern convenience.
