The Tuscany region
Castelfiorentino is really in the heart of Tuscany in an area rich of history near the medieval paths of the Via Francigena and close to the villages where Leonardo and Boccaccio were born.
The region is famous for its landscapes with soft rolling hills with cypress and olive trees.
Spring and autumn are the best period to visit with mild temperatures. In July and August it can be pretty hot but our location is on the top of a hill and can benefit of a pleasant breeze .
Florence is considered to be among the history richest cities in the world: many churches and museums are worth a visit. The Uffizzi art gallery contains major works by Michelangelo, Botticelli and Raffaello .
In Castelfiorentino you can find the famous frescos of Benozzo Gozzoli (1420- 1497) and all kind of shops and supermarkets for your convenience.
At the farm we are available to asssit you with reservations in most of the museums.

"Tranquility in Tuscany"
As well as being in one of the most beautiful landscaped regions on earth, Il Petriccio is truly an unforgettable place to stay! Tranquil and unassuming. Although we are seasoned travelers to Florence, it wasn't only until we stayed at Il Petriccio in the countryside of Florence, that we realized a true Tuscan experience.
We were warmly greeted when we arrived at Il Petriccio by the owners Paolo and his lovely wife Francesca. We stayed for one week in the Granaio apartment, which included a bottle of the white wine that was made from the winery on the premises as a gift from the hosts. When you run out of wine, and you will because it is a really great wine, there is more available to purchase along with their delicious olive oil and vinegar, as well as an amazing Vin Santo you should not miss. The apartment was beautiful and very charming. The rooms were clean and spacious, decorated in traditional timeless Tuscany style with original flooring, which added to the whole Tuscan experience. The kitchen was fully equipped to cook and serve some if not all of your meals. Since there was easy access to some great grocery stores, we enjoyed shopping for fresh food, and preparing some of our meals. There are also some great restaurants that came recommended by the owners. Whatever we needed, Paolo and Francesca were there to accommodate us. They were fantastic hosts, friendly, attentive and very helpful!
Along with a great swimming pool, an outdoor dining and seating area, we enjoyed a tour the grounds where we saw the vineyards, olive trees and farmland. The landscaping and views were breathtaking, clearly what you expect when you think of Tuscany. There are also many places to drive to and visit nearby. We took day trips to Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa, and of course Florence, all with amazing restaurants! Also if you are up for outlet shopping, it's all a drive away.
Perfect in every aspect. This was truly an amazing Tuscan experience and cannot wait to go back! Highly recommend this property.
Thank you for your kind words. We have been working hard to make Il Petriccio like the second home for all our guests.
We are happy when they appreciate our services including suggestions on where to go, reservations to museums and restaurants, and the wine-tasting experience.
We are waiting to welcome you and your family once again as part of the "friends of Il Petriccio".

"Spectacular stay in Tuscany"
Amazing vacation place for people who loves and appreciate the peace and quite of the sountryside. Depped in the heart of tuscany, Fattoria il Petriccio is near to cyties like Florence and Siena, and also near to many sites of historical interest. The owner Paolo is always very kind and helpful. The appartment was very clean and nicely furnished. There are many places where you can relax and enjoy nature, near the swimming pool or just under a chestnut tree
Thank you for your review. At Il Petriccio we are really trying to make our guests at home, that's why we have so many people coming back.
We are also helping our guests to reserve visits in the principal museums of Tuscany (like the Ufizzi) without having to wait in line for hours. We are waiting for your next visit.
