The tiny town of Petroio dates back many centuries. There are not more than 350 people who live in this quaint place lined with narrow stone buildings and streets. It is located in a very rural area not near to any other hotels or restaurants. This is a plus as the area is quiet, lovely and serene, perfect for a relaxing retreat and the food is very good. There are only a few rooms at the Palazzo which adds to its homey atmosphere. There is a lovely outdoor patio area which overlooks the countryside and makes for a terrific place to share a glass of wine at the end of the day.
But what makes this hotel an unforgettable experience is the service and the manager, Ousmane, a man from Senegal who knows all about hospitality and making guests feel "at home." There are not adequate words to describe how much Ousmane did to make our stay unforgettable. Upon our arrival, we were told to relax because Ousmane can solve all problems. That was the absolute truth. He is a true gem and I will never forget all the exceptional things he did! Thank you Ousmane!!!
Thanks too, to Victoria, a charming local girl who is the hostess at the Palazzo, to Aurelia, chef extraordinaire, and her assistant for making delicious meals, and to Laura, the housekeeper for going above and beyond the call of duty to make our stay in Tuscany truly memorable.
