Hotel Description

If your life were a movie, you’d probably marry someone Italian. The wedding would happen on the lawn outside a quaint Tuscan villa, with beautiful people milling around the grounds, drinking Sangiovese — in a place just like Relais Villa Petrischio. (Set aside the thought, for a moment, that a fair number of Italians make this fantasy a reality each summer: no one said life is fair.) Situated on a hilltop dotted with century-old pine and cypress trees, not far from the medieval town of Cortona, the 18th-century stone villa was originally a family home. Today, it’s an 18-room hotel with a good restaurant, plus an outdoor swimming pool and poolside bar offering panoramic views over the Tuscan countryside.

Inside, the look is rather traditional — the hotel’s owners quite rightly chose not to mess with the villa’s lovely archways or wood-beamed ceilings. Guest rooms, with dark tiled floors, wrought-iron and canopy beds, framed oil paintings, and floral drapery, might seem a bit dated if you’re coming from Rome, or even from Florence. But they’re examples of a regional aesthetic — and a perfectly cozy one at that. All rooms are named after female mythological characters, and no two are alike. One has a corner fireplace, another a large Jacuzzi; all have satellite TV, minibars and wi-fi. Larger apartments, located in free-standing buildings with private gardens, provide additional space and amenities, just in case you may require your own wine cellar.

The breakfast buffet is charmingly local, with a range of Italian pastries, meats and cheeses, and cappuccino the way it’s meant to be made. Dinner is similarly leisurely in the restaurant, La Terrazza, where the chef specializes in the culinary technique of the Etruscan civilization. Part of the appeal of Villa Petrischio is access to desirable Tuscan destinations — Siena, Florence, and Pisa are all within easy reach — but in a place as relaxing as this, you might be tempted to stay put.
