Guest comments Villa Petra (7)

Caroline Bradley, , United Kingdom

Wonderful house, beautifully furnished with excellent facilities - pool, table tennis, snooker table, card tables, dining indoors and out. But best of all are the staff - nothing is too much trouble to arrange, they clean and tidy quickly and without fuss, are friendly and discreet and made our stay extra special. So quiet, lovely views. Tips for other travellers Very well positioned to make trips by car or for further afield like Firenze, by train. Plenty of shops and restaurants short drive away, even some walking distance away.

Villa Petra was the perfect spot for our daughter's wedding. The grounds and the villa are gorgeous and the staff is the absolute best!

This is by far the best place I could have imagined. We had a wonderful time with all of our guests. Everyone loved the location and the authenticity of the property. One recommendation: upgrade bathrooms in the farm houses and maybe the 2 upstairs bathrooms in villa as well. The staff is incredibly helpful. Laura & Marco are like an army of people who can get everything done. The food is fantastic. The people are all so nice. Tips for other travellers Trust anything Marco recommends!!

We hosted 14 of our friends for my wife's 50th this past week and had a wonderful stay. We received excellent service from the entire staff including Marco, Sandra, and Lorenzo. Villa Petra is a beautiful spot with fantastic grounds and gardens. The view from the patio is truly a special view. Strongly suggest a tour of the vineyard and tower. We would recommend Villa Petra to thoses who want a special Italian Tuscany experience.

Beyond words…the Tuscan wedding and destination we dreamt about. In fact we don’t know where to start. It was all perfect, everything from beginning to end was perfect so we have to start somewhere. And by the way nothing we say will do justice to our experience at VILLA PETRA. We are from Europe, live in the US, and were looking for the perfect place for a truly Tuscan romantic wedding, accommodating family, friends and kids from around the world in the same place for a week – for a party, a celebration, relaxation, bonding (around 65 adults and 10 kids). We could not have chosen a better place! Accommodated it all! We planned the wedding (July 2012) and the whole week at teh Villa from the US by looking around on the internet. This location with its beautiful surroundings and amenities (and there are a lot) looked perfect. But dealing with the kindness, flexibility and service-mindedness of the agenc really settled the deal for us. So, we had the opportunity to stay at the estate the week ahead and get to know it a bit more. That was perfect and we just got to love the place more. When everyone arrived we had the whole estate for ourselves. The way it is arranged allowed for everyone to stay close, maintain some privacy and yet enjoy great times together at the main villa surrounded by the olive groves and vineyards and beauty of the landscape. After the wedding everyone hung around the pool, the fountain, the terrace, the tennis courts and enjoyed the wines the scenery and the local food. We should mention that attractions like Florence, Sienna, Montepulciano and Montalcino are just within a short driving distance. And by the way we had the most amazing housekeeping all week, Sandra and her colleagues. Sandra made sure everything was perfect in the villa, was always around to help and was always really helpful! So again – where to start – we have so much to say: the staff just wanted to help with whatever issue you may have when arranging a wedding and really wanted to help us realize our dream. The surroundings speak for themselves. Tuscany, Chianti hills, tennis courts, vineyards, swimming pools, local wines, rusticness of the place – did we leave out anything – we hope not, team VILLA PETRA deserve it! Would we do it again – si! D&A

Caretakers Marco and Nada are extremely helpful and very friendly and approachable. The cook is excellent and having her prepare meals in house is an absolute bargain.

It would be helpful to note that the local grocery stores are closed on Sunday. With a late Saturday arrival, people may think that they can wait until the following day to buy most of their groceries. Fortunately, we had been warned by friends who had visited the area that the stores were not open. Additionally, we were pleasantly suprised to find the villa had internet capabilities!
The staff gave us a FANTASTIC experience! We had several delicious meals, they were able to help us celebrate a birthday, and gave us great recommendations for wineries to visit.
