About Paola Petrilli

Our family have purchased this property 40 years ago and refurbished it completely creating a beautiful garden with 700 olive trees, one private pool with jacuzzi, tennis court and stables for my sister's 2 horses as she plays polo and works with kids as hypnotherapist.

The entire property consists of three homes : my parents villa, my sister villa and a charming 1 bedroom cottage that can host up to 4 persons available for holiday rentals as well.

Paola Petrilli purchased this cottage in 1972

Why Paola Petrilli chose Bagno a Ripoli

Our property is located on a small hill therefore the surrounding country view is just relaxing and peaceful. The village is just 1 km away close enough for any needs but far away from traffic. We purchased this property for summer vacation and holidays escapes from town. After we spent our first summer here we fall in love and never went back to our former home in town. Florence is only 3 km away and access to highways is at 2 km.

In the last 20 years my family has welcomed many friends and they all just loved our unique place.

What makes this cottage unique

Swimming pool, Jacuzzi Pool, tennis court and horse back riding on site. 18 holes golf course at 4 km.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing experience with a place offering hotel standards in addition to a family approach and as a gift getting local vegetables. An ideal place for families with kids . Just next to Florence and not far away from Siena . Resourcing from visiting with car facilities at its best. The swimming pool is big , clean and so much enjoyable with its pool house including shower and toilets. The surroundings with its olive trees and relaxing nature makes this place a perfect destination you can dream for.

Wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

A clean, spacious apartment in a stunning location, close to Florence and other local amenities. We were made to feel very welcome. Our little ones enjoyed discovering the gardens and swimming in the rather wonderful pool.

From CA to Grassina and well worth it.

  • 5 of 5

The property was absolutely beautiful, I cannot say enough about it. Plenty of room, clean, charming, everything worked perfectly. We were greeted with fresh fruit and a nice bottle of Chianti Classico. We enjoyed sitting by the pool after a full day and just relaxing, we enjoyed cooking our meals in the quaint little kitchenette. We enjoyed the sunset while sitting outside at out back table having a glass of wine. I would not hesitate to stay there the next time we are in Italy, in the Tuscany region. It was only a 20 minute drive to Florence and about an hour to Siena.

Amazing Villa just south of Florence

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with the villa that was situated in a small village just a 30 minute bus ride to Florence. We especially enjoyed the beautiful large pool after spending a day sightseeing around the Tuscany countryside in the hot summer.

The Villa was one of just a few on the property and the owners were always there to help answer any questions. The Villa itself was very comfortable and the air conditioning really helped us cool off.

We'd definitely stay there again.

The Perfect setting...

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here after a few days in Rome. It was a fantastic setting to get out of the city and into the Tuscan countryside. We couldn't have asked for a more gracious and pleasant host. The house was perfect for our use and looks impeccably maintained by the owners, who you can tell truly care. They had a bed for our toddler made so beautifully that we didn't want to lay her in it and mess it up. Florence is close by for easy access and the small towns are close to the house, but you can't feel that at all when you are on property. All you see is Cypress, Olive trees (over 700) and beautiful views. Such an authentic Italian experience that will forever be in our memory. Our only regret is that we didn't stay here longer - but that only leaves the opportunity to come back and rent the entire complex for us and our extended family!
