KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Set in a wonderful Tuscan landscape, the 15th century villa of Petrognano was the summer palace of the Bishops of Fiesole until the present owner's family bought it in the 1890's. The estate stands in its own woodlands in the peaceful region of Pomino, famous for its wine and olive oil, and just 30km from Florence.
Surrounding the villa and dotted over the estate are several large farmhouses which have now been converted for holiday use. These houses have been developed to retain all the character of the original buildings and, in keeping with their origins, are styled and furnished very simply.
Excellent wine and olive oil are produced on the estate. The estate has the added advantage of its own small country Inn, with a good restaurant and bed & breakfast facilities with seven double or twin bedrooms. The restaurant's food is traditional and authentic focusing on seasonal produce and good quality ingredients. Here, after a stroll across fields, you can enjoy traditional local dishes and a glass or two of wine while admiring the views from the vast terrace that overlooks a valley of vine yards and olive groves.
It is as pretty here in the autumn and spring as it is in the summer months and, since Petrognano is on the route to the Passa di Consuma, it is also a pleasant place to stay for Christmas or later, with the possibility of skiing.
