My wife and I spent two weeks in Italy, traveling with my brother-in-law and his partner. During that trip, we spent four nights at the Villa di Piazzano. We found this property to be the perfect blend between a "high end" hotel and a casual/friendly B&B. The setting is gorgeous, the Villa itself beautiful, the proprietors and staff incredibly friendly. We highly recommend this property to those looking for an out-of-the way place to stay in the Cortona region. We can't wait to go back!
Not sure why the word perfect is being used so freely when we meet perfect so rarely in life. Gladly one of these few times just happened to me and my fiancé while traveling to fantastic Tuscany to celebrate my birthday. We arrived fairly late and the road to this magical villa didn't promise much.. as soon as we got to the charming front desk we met a classy lady (Lorella is this angel's name) who made us feel like we got home (I wish!). Seriously, if there are tinny imperfections and I'm saying that because I could be a little much sometimes, the incredible staff does everything it takes to fix these and they do it in a way that makes you feel no guilt for being picky. I can go on and on about their insane restaurant of where I had the best steak tartar I've ever tasted and that it is being served in a room that makes you feel as if you and Julius Caesar used to hang and I can talk about the flawless and rooms overlooking the magical garden of the best part of romantic toscuny or even the nice owner of the villa that spends the longest time to play fetch with his happy dog and none of that could even touch one percent of what the place really feels like. To make a long story short, go and know that no matter who you are, I hate you for being there while I'm not.
Lovely place and met all of our expectations,very relaxing and the staff was fantastic.Will definitely go there again.
Las habitaciones, jardines, comedor, recepción.... Son ideales. No hemos utilizado la piscina porque hemos estado en Octubre y hacia fresquito pero estaba limpísima... Cenamos la noche que llegamos muy bien, el desayuno genial y muy cerca está "Cortona" que es uno de los pueblitos que más nos ha gustado de la Toscana, con mucho ambiente de día y para cenar... Muy recomendable!!
Great hotel and resort and our favorite in Tuscan. Highly recommended.
Just an overnight stay but this is a real gem. A beautiful sense of living history. Friendly staff & a wonderful treat after the crowds of Florence. Also an excellent base from which to explore Cortona, Montepulciano and Pienza. Thoroughly recommend!
Wonderful stay - lovely room, great food and hospitable and kind staff - nothing more needed.
We had à fantastic stay here. What a lovely hotel, very friendly staff.
The hotel was perfect for our honeymoon. The building and grounds were stunning, the rooms were always spotless, the staff were so helpful and friendly, and the breakfast was amazing. Thank you!
I've stayed twice at Villa di Piazzano and can't think of a lovelier setting run by Allessandra and her family and all the staff, who so obviously take great pride in providing exceptional hospitality. You will feel as though you have been welcomed into someone's home. The rooms and villa grounds are all beautiful, the pool area tranquil and perfect for reading and relaxing after a day of sightseeing, and Chef Gabriellas food is absolutely delicious. The villa is also the perfect home base for exploring Cortona and the surrounding areas. Any of the staff will be more than happy to give you directions, suggestions, or even book excursions for you. I can't recommend Villa di Piazzano enough and hope to return again.
Our stay has far exceeded expectations. Every detail in making our time here the best possible has been seen to! A beautiful place.&
A wonderfully elegant and relaxing destination. The staff is very kind and helpful and the rooms and grounds are exquisite. I would highly recommend this hotel for your next stay in Tuscany.
Truly one of the best hotels I have ever stayed. Everything exceeded expectations from accommodations to the amazing staff. Grazie Mille. I will let all my friends know to stay here.
This was our second time at your lovely place. It was wonderful in all respects: the gorgeous villa, the beautiful room and breathtaking view, the delicious breakfast and superb dinner and perhaps most important - the warm and welcoming hosts, the Wimpole Family, and their dedicated, kind staff. It was perfection. We will be back again!
Tuscany was our third stop, following Venice and Florenza. Our suite at the Villa di Piazzano was easily the best accommodation of the trip so far. It was spacious, well appointed, appealing to the eye and meticulously maintained. The staff were superb, the owners gracious, and the location central as a base to explore the region. We enjoyed the restaurant and cooking class. It was too cool for the pool, but it like all the common areas, looked great. It was a totally satisfying stay.
