Having visited the Villa Petrischio twice before we were disappointed with the level of service by the restaurant staff and also by the quality of the cooked breakfast, which looked overcooked and totally unappetising.
One afternoon we sat outside by the pool area from 4.30pm/7.00pm. No member of staff came to give us the cushion pads for the chairs, nor to clear the tables, nor asked if we wanted anything to eat or drink. On previous visits the staff were extremely friendly and attentive, so what has gone wrong? Maybe they were all too busy preparing for a big Italian wedding the next day. Even so, this was no excuse for such poor service in a high quality establishment.
The apartment itself was wonderful and had everything in it that you could possibly want. It was spacious, attractively decorated, combining modern facilities with an old-world feel, echoing that of the Villa itself. If you have a car and are happy to drive, the location is perfect for a short stay to visit the surrounding area - Cortona, Siena, Montepulciano, etc.
