Petroia means a family hospitality, good gourmet and also a direct contact with the environment. As common for medieval Fortress, we are surrounded by and antique growing farm (700 acres): some part is dedicated to the rearing and pasture of “Chianina” cattle (very antique breed)*; the rest is totally untouched: the hills are covered with woods and greens.
Moment of peace just relaxing poolside, surrounded by olive trees, overlooking the panorama;
Some amazing encounter, while walking throughout the 10 km trails inside the property (as deers, wild boars, foxes, pheasants, porcupines and other birds).
*Among cattle breeds Chianina is really well-known, thanks mostly to the famous Fiorentina steak, and today its meat is considered among the most highly valued; already well-known by Etruscans and Ancient Romans, the Chianina breed is to be found on the hills and plains of Tuscany, Umbria and Upper Lazio.IGP status (protected geographical indication) is the unique symbol of quality for fresh beef approved by the EU for Italy. The cattle have to comply with specific rules and regulations, regarding birth, identification, weaning, nutrition and slaughtering; they are subjected to numerous controls which guarantee its quality.
