About Paola Petrilli

Our family consist of 4 people & Cloe our beautiful cocker spaniel. We 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 cottage where I used to live. Since my sister and I moved out we decided to propose the two properties for holiday rentals.

Paola Petrilli purchased this cottage in 1972

Why Paola Petrilli chose Firenze (Florence) Province

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.

Great little cottage near Florence

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little place to stay on a wonderful property. Getting into Florence was very easy via bus. The place did not disappoint, the living room space was ample and the kitchen works. Important to note the grocery stores only stay open until 8-8:30pm so you need to get that done first if you plan to cook at the house. We did make breakfast but otherwise ate out. Recommend staying here if you want the feel of the Tuscan Countryside but also want to go into Florence!

Charming house in Grassina, Italy

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house from 4/19-29/2017. We were greeted by Paola, who could not have been nicer. There was a bottle of wine awaiting us, as well as fruit, water, and juice.....little touches that meant so much. The property is beautiful and serene. The house is very comfortable. We were very happy we chose this rental and would recommend it to others.

Peaceful, friendly, and incredibly beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here and would love to return. The gardens are beautifully and painstakingly tended, the views are lovely in all directions, and the house is perfectly equipped for simple cooking and relaxation. We used the swimming pool, the tennis courts, the grill, and the laundry facilities and absolutely everything we needed was provided. Nella gave us a huge bowl of fruit, fresh eggs from her chickens, and her own olive oil, and these things, along with her charming and gracious personality, made us feel instantly and completely at home. I also loved how close the house was to Grassina--I was able to walk and go on runs there every day.

You're looking like going home - look no further!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Poala for almost 2 weeks and felt from the first second at home. The service provided by the Petrilli family is outstanding and has exceeded all our expectations. The care to detail and the surroundings are a perfect match for those looking to have a private holiday far away from the noise and still being a door step away from Florence. Us the opportunity of having this unique opportunity!

tuscan holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bagno a Ripoli for a week late september. It was a beautiful place with wonderful owners. Peaceful, great views laying at the huge pool….. Chloe ( dog) is a sweet attentive host-- as is her wonderful owner, Nella. The grounds are lovely. Nella brought us fresh eggs from her chickens, and sent us home with their own olive oil. We rented bikes that were delivered to the villa. The road up is VERY steep. Nice little town just down the hill with small grocers, and had a couple of very good local dinners.

Thanks so much!! Stacy and Jeff
