Villa Petriolo

Tuscany Experience

Villa Petriolo is a rescued villa which offers a reconnection with nature without losing luxury and comfort. Looking to offer the Tuscany experience in its entirety.

Villa Petriolo is located in the precise point that allows the perfect balance between the Tuscan nature and the Florentine art and lifestyle, due to its proximity to the great city of Florence. We want to transform what Earth has given us, without being transgressive, but the opposite, to be sustainable and make everything part of the cycle. That’s why we farm, produce and serve our own products. From the ground to the table, A prestigious restaurant where local flavors and techniques are recovered and in unison with the passion put into each dish they redefine the way to discover Cerreto Guidi’s own cuisine. In our property there are also 25 km of paths that can be traveled on foot or by bicycle that offer the possibility of real contact with nature, even wild, allowing you to get to know the farmyard animals and the aquatic oasis of our farm up close didactics (6 km itinerary), discovering the traces of the inhabitants of the forest and the varied landscapes of the Tuscan countryside. Dolce vita, dolce far niente but also being free to do whatever you want. At Villa Petriolo it happens every day: picnics and aperitifs, outdoor experiences, wine and extra virgen olive oil tasting, truffle hunting, beekeeping, trekking, biking, falconry lessons, sheepherding, cooking lessons for all levels with our chefs and with our products, from typical Tuscan recipes to food design, guided artistic visits and many other activities that you will discover only by experiencing them.

Green Philosophy

Agritourism is our main line, from where everything comes: It combines traditional recreation and contact with rural life, knowing the way and peasant traditions associating  articipation and active observation. Benefits such as the cultural wealth, the maintenance of the environment, the human treat and the experience, the amazement of nature and landscapes, the historical remains of the place and the immediate participation on the activities such as : pic-nics, trekking, wine tastings, cooking classes, truffle  huntings, sheepherding, cultural visits. All of it makes the experience unforgettable. The goal is to enjoy the road and not just the destination, it is where history is traced. Each path  with its “highlight”

An integral complex, a villa restored and transformed into an agricultural estate, where centuries of history are reflected. The stimulation of the senses by the nature, the possibility of accommodation to take the experience beyond, everything in conjunction, hostes you in the most intimate of Tuscany.

We want to transform what Earth has given us, without being transgressive, but the opposite, to be sustainable and make everything part of the cycle. That’s why we farm, produce and serve our own products.

From the ground to the table, A prestigious restaurant where local flavors and techniques are recovered and in unison with the passion put into each dish they redefine the way to discover Cerreto Guidi’s own cuisine.

As part of this complex there is an exclusive Spa, a dedicated relax center that seeks the luxury, the sensorial sophistication by the simple fact of coming back to oneself’s essence, to recovery, encounter with the inner self and connect with it while the countryside landscapes break your daily routine.
