We are placed on the eastern flanks of the Chianti mountains, in the lovely setting of vineyards, olive groves and woods of Petrolo.

Florence, Siena and Arezzo, are reachable in 30-45 minutes from us. We are an award winning winery dedicated to the production of quality wines: the Torrione and the Galatrona.

The guests are more than welcome to visit the estate cellars for a nice wine tour!

At only 1,5 km distance, in the nearest village, you can look for groceries, banks, pharmacy and other services.


The farmhouse (Guests 8 - 130 sqm / 1170 sqft) is on a hillside just below the Tower of Galatrona, symbol of the whole property. Surrounded by chestnuts and oaks, from the house you can enjoy a sweeping view of the Valdarno valley.

FIRST FLOOR: Front porch entrance, living room with an internal staircase leading to the kitchen, 1 double room and 2 twin rooms (the beds can be joined to make a qeen bed) . All bedrooms have their bathroom ensuite (2 with bath, 1 with shower).

The Villa is located on the Chianti hills, the village of Mercatale Valdarno is just 1,4 Km far; there you can find market, pharmacy, baker, bar, restaurant, post office

On the top of the hill behind thevilla, just 200 meters road, you have the panoramic medieval tower of Galatrona, where is possible to rise on top.

Mercatale Valdarno, historical village in walking distance, with restaurants, shops and the local market for fresh food and veggies is really easy to achieve.

Within 30/40 kms there are Florence, Arezzo and Siena (the first two comfortably reachable also by train from the station of Montevarchi that is far less than 10 minutes by car).

Cortona, Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano,and the Val D' Orcia are distant approximately one hour by car."

This is a land where, more than any other place, tradition and daily life exist side by side in perfect harmony.

Today the area is famous for its contribution to the international fashion industry and boasts the location of prestigious fashion outlets like Prada and "The Mall".

The area has excellent restaurants, a farmer’s market and regular train service to Florence, Arezzo, Rome (with connections to every major Italian city)

overlooking the Villa and the Tower

The villa is part of a large estate; Tenuta di Petrolo.

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 works by Giovanni della Robbia.
