Property description

Villa Petrolo is an 18th century manor house, built by Massimiliano Soldani, architect sculptor and medalist for the Medici Family, as his own residence. It’s now available for holidays, weddings and events.
The property can host from 17 to 33 people in 16 bedrooms (in twins or doubles +1 singles and 2 triple bedrooms).
Includes daily 4 hours cleaning service, private swimming pool 6x12 mt, free adsl Wi-Fi, billiard, tennis court, ping pong, Satellite TV, two kitchens, large living rooms, 1 grand hall and fireplaces for cozy winters.
The house is over 750 sqm (8100 sqft) and has vast private gardens of over 1 ha all around with fountain, century old cypresses and holm-oak woods. The interior decoration, arranged with attention to the smallest details wants to keep the traditional “landed gentry” feel and consists mostly of antique furniture, with both antique and modern paintings.

By the house we also present a selection of the estate’s products: our fine wines, organic E.V. Olive oil and honey.
Delicious informal meals, full board, half board or just occasionally, can be requested, prepared by our family cooks, in traditional Tuscan style.
The Villa is divided as such:
-Main Villa, for up to 17 people:9 bedrooms ensuite. Vast hall with Murano crystal chandelier and large living rooms.
-2nd floor has two separate apartments: apt A and B, adding 7 extra bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Flexible upgrades possible

PETROLO ESTATE
Tenuta di Petrolo, with its famous winery and prestigious production of Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, is placed on the slopes of the hills bordering the Chianti region overlooking from its favourable point of view the lovely valley of Valdarno Superiore.
The Estate is surrounded by green olive groves, active vineyards and beautiful oak woods in an area full of charm and history. Dominating the countryside and landmark of the Estate, is the Tower of Galatrona which foundations date back to the Etruscans and Romans. The Tower itself lends its name to Petrolo’s wines, the 'Torrione' (which means big tower) and the 'Galatrona'. Petrolo’s manor house, the Villa, overlooks the ancient Romanesque Pieve (parish church) of Galatrona, which houses precious renaissance works by Giovanni della Robbia.

Three small private lakes, were fishing is possible, complete Petrolo’s scenery. On request interesting visits to the wine-cellars and traditional olive-mill can be organized as well as tastings and purchase of the estate's products. Available for our guests there’s Wi-Fi internet in all properties.

Petrolo can accomodate its guests in the Villa and in three independent farmhouses: Costa, Vigna, Feriale I and Feriale II. Managing up to 65 guests.
