Property Description

Overview

The stately nine bedroom Villa Petrolo is the crown jewel of the Fattoria Petrolo Premium vineyard estate located within walking distance of the towns of Bucine and Mercatale Valdarno. The villa’s owners have recently completed renovations and made the former upstairs servant quarters into apartments, so the villa can also be rented as a 15 bedroom villa. Villa Petrolo was built by renowned architect Massimiliano Soldani as his private residence in the early 18th century. The interior of this Petrolo is primarily furnished with Tuscan antiques, and both old school masterpieces and modern paintings grace its walls. Villa Petrolo is perfect for family reunions and weddings.

Dominating the countryside and landmark of this large estate, is the Tower of Galatrona the foundations of which date back to the Etruscans and Romans. The Tower itself lends its name to Petrolo’s outstanding wines, the “Torrione” (meaning “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. Petrolo is famous for its production of wines, grappa, extra virgin olive oil and honey. A visit to the wine cellars and Petrolo┬┤s traditional olive-mill are a must! Petrolo’s internationally famous vineyards produced 60,000 bottles of wine in 2010. The estate’s wines are internationally exported under the Torrione label and have been rated extremely highly by publications including the Wine Spectator.
