The villa is spacious, and our party of 7 had ample room to gather and eek separate space as needed. We enjoyed the pool, and the kitchen is excellent. Having an ice maker is a real plus! As others have noted, Maria is a gem. She was a joy to be around and prepared excellent dinners for us on several of our nights at the villa. Four group members took a cooking class with her, and they loved it!
The villa’s setting is beautiful, with sweeping views of the Tuscany countryside and its hills. We sat on the balcony every evening that we were there to enjoy the sunsets. The ground floor porch and second floor balconies are both large, offering great space for group gatherings or morning coffee.
We would recommend Villa Petrea highly, particularly for a group that wants to both get away from it all yet be close to a town and have access to trains. I found Villa in Italia to be an excellent planning partner. Everything was clear, and all was as advertised. Alessandra, you were wonderful! You responded quickly to my many emails and provided excellent advice and guidance throughout our planning. We have rented residences elsewhere in Europe, and your service was as good or better than other companies with which we have dealt There were no surprises, which is always appreciated.
Many thanks for all that you did to make our vacation a huge success!
