About Paola Petrilli

Our family consist of 4 people & Cloe our beautiful cocker spaniel. We have purchased this property 40 years ago and refurbished it completely creating a beautiful garden with 700 olive trees, one private pool with jacuzzi, tennis court and stables for my sister's 2 horses as she plays polo and works with kids as hypnotherapist.

The entire property consists of three homes : my parents villa, my sister villa and a charming cottage where I used to live. Since my sister and I moved out we decided to propose the two properties for holiday rentals.

Paola Petrilli purchased this cottage in 1972

Why Paola Petrilli chose Florentine Hills

Our property is located on a small hill therefore the surrounding country view is just relaxing and peaceful. The village is just 1 km away close enough for any needs but far away from traffic. We purchased this property for summer vacation and holidays escapes from town. After we spent our first summer here we fall in love and never went back to our former home in town. Florence is only 3 km away and access to highways is at 2 km.

In the last 20 years my family has welcomed many friends and they all just loved our unique place.

What makes this cottage unique

Swimming pool, Jacuzzi Pool, tennis court and horse back riding on site. 18 holes golf course at 4 km.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing experience with a place offering hotel standards in addition to a family approach and as a gift getting local vegetables. An ideal place for families with kids . Just next to Florence and not far away from Siena . Resourcing from visiting with car facilities at its best. The swimming pool is big , clean and so much enjoyable with its pool house including shower and toilets. The surroundings with its olive trees and relaxing nature makes this place a perfect destination you can dream for.

Peaceful, friendly, and incredibly beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here and would love to return. The gardens are beautifully and painstakingly tended, the views are lovely in all directions, and the house is perfectly equipped for simple cooking and relaxation. We used the swimming pool, the tennis courts, the grill, and the laundry facilities and absolutely everything we needed was provided. Nella gave us a huge bowl of fruit, fresh eggs from her chickens, and her own olive oil, and these things, along with her charming and gracious personality, made us feel instantly and completely at home. I also loved how close the house was to Grassina--I was able to walk and go on runs there every day.

You're looking like going home - look no further!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Poala for almost 2 weeks and felt from the first second at home. The service provided by the Petrilli family is outstanding and has exceeded all our expectations. The care to detail and the surroundings are a perfect match for those looking to have a private holiday far away from the noise and still being a door step away from Florence. Us the opportunity of having this unique opportunity!

tuscan holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bagno a Ripoli for a week late september. It was a beautiful place with wonderful owners. Peaceful, great views laying at the huge pool….. Chloe ( dog) is a sweet attentive host-- as is her wonderful owner, Nella. The grounds are lovely. Nella brought us fresh eggs from her chickens, and sent us home with their own olive oil. We rented bikes that were delivered to the villa. The road up is VERY steep. Nice little town just down the hill with small grocers, and had a couple of very good local dinners.

Thanks so much!! Stacy and Jeff

Everything was as it offered and more, the photos reflected perfectly the beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We strongly recommend this wonderful place, is a beautiful property, where we received a lot of attention from the owners, they are really so nice, the house is full of amenities, everything was just perfect. We were with teenage children, and all enjoyed it. We would love to return. The home is sutated very close to Florence, a city that could fully enjoy and explore the beautiful region of Tuscany with ease. It was a great experience with wonderful people. Thank you

A real gem

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Paola for 2 weeks and were very happy to have found this place. The location is just perfect. In the hills of northern chianti just outside a little town. Very quiet,but only 15 minutes from downtown Florence.

Paola was truly a perfect host, lightning fast responding to every email (less than 2 hours between our first Inquiry and her answer), and always available by phone if needed.

The description and the pictures are very accurate, but reality was far more impressing.

The house has everything one would ask for. A nice and cosy bedroom, a full kitchen, an eating area and a spacious living room. Perfect for a couple and perhaps one guest. Just in front of the living room is a private garden with table and chairs. The pool has an unusual large size for a private one. And we were usually the only ones to enjoy it. The family Petrilli was very friendly and helpful, but gave us all the privacy we wanted.

All in all, we LOVED to stay here and hope to return in the not too far future.
