We produce our own red wine and organic olive-oil.
We have a panoramic al fresco dining terrace and a natural wood covered terrace.
In terms of accommodation it combines the flexibility and independence of self contained villas with the facilities of an hotel such as breakfast, reception, food catering, permanent staff on site.
With sunlight bathing silvery olive groves and patchwork vineyards, few places on the globe are as romantic and relaxing as Tuscany.
And this intimate atmosphere is what prevails at Il Petruccio, an elegant estate hidden in the heart of Tuscany less than an hour from Florence, Siena and Pisa.
Dominating this luxury retreat is a medieval tower, undoubtedly a reminder of the ancient city of Semifonte destroyed in 1202 A. D. by Florence, its rival.
The elegantly restored tower, together with four other refurbished edifices on the estate, is waiting to accommodate guests on a timeless journey into the heart of Tuscan life.
Whether you find yourself sipping tea by the pool or indulging in a glass of Chianti wine at sunset in the tower, the majestic views and magical essence of times gone by is sure to embrace every guest visiting Il Petruccio. This is a perfect wedding spot for weddings of no more than 60 people. Around 35 can sleep on the property in self catering apartments.
