“The best of Tuscany”
Reviewed 11 July 2012

We loved everything about Villa di Piazzano. The setting is magnificent. The people who work there are friendly, charming and helpful. The room had a simple elegance to it that I adored. The food was outstanding and we were lucky enough to take a cooking class one day with Chef Gabriella. Her passion for beautiful, simple Italian cooking will stay with me as I try to recreate her dishes. We will definitely return! Grazie.

My wife and I first stayed at the villa four years ago and we were so busy seeing the local areas of interest that I felt disappointed that we didn't have more time to just relax and enjoy the property. During our recent two week trip through southern France and Italy we stayed four nights at the Villa Di Piazzano. As nice as the villa was the first time it seemed even better the second time. This 500 or 600 year old structure is in amazing condition, a true pleasure to enjoy a place with such history (if you go make sure to ask about the time the Nazis flooded the wine cellar when they relinquished the villa at the end of the war) that is also in such pristine condition with all of the modern conveniences.

This trip we met friends of ours who also stayed at the villa. It was their first time there and they loved it as well. The property is ideally located for day tripping. We had a wonderful day wine tasting and touring in Montalcino. Perhaps the best part of our stay this time was having the time to enjoy and appreciate the property. Sitting in the garden on a sunny afternoon drinking Proseco, snacking on cheese and fruit,and taking in the truly spectacular views that surround the villa is the type of experience that everyone should get to experience when touring through Tuscany/Umbria.

Our thanks once again to the Wimpoles for a wonderful travel experience, the type of experience that creates beautiful travel memories long after the trip is over.

I stayed at the villa for 4 nights in early June as part of a vacationing group of 6 adults. I had such a lovely time I really did not want to leave. The villa itself is beautifully restored and so peaceful but it is the people that give the villa its heart. From Ruth at the front desk to the owner Alessandra we were made to feel a welcomed member of the family during our visit. The entire staff did everything they could to make sure we had everything we could possibly want or need. The cooking class with head chef, Gabriella, is an experience I will never forget and was the highlight of my 16 day vacation. I hope to make it back to Tuscany in the future and I will not consider staying anywhere other than the the Villa di Piazzano. Eccellente!

Room Tip: I stayed in il Campanile and it was perfect for two people sharing a room but not wanting to share a...

We left Villa di Piazzano this morning after an all too short 2 night stay. The hotel is superbly and thoughtfully renovated to a very high standard. Our room was beautifully decorated and the bed very comfortable (having had some very uncomfortable nights on hard beds during our tour of Tuscany)). The terrace where breakfast and dinner is served is peaceful, looking out over beautiful countryside. The breakfast buffet was fantastic, and easily the best of our trip, but I have to agree with other reviewers - the coffee is a disappointment. I enjoy Italian coffee, whether it be espresso or americano as it has such a rich but smooth flavour, and this was sadly lacking here. Dinner on our first night was delicious, but unfortunately the restaurant was closed on our second night (as every Tuesday). The staff however booked us a table at a lovely restaurant in Cortona. As previous reviewers have said, all the staff are wonderful - nothing is too much trouble, and they are clearly and justifiably proud of their hotel.
We would love to return to this beautiful hotel in the future.

We stayed at Villa di Piazzano for 2 nights at the beginning of June for a friends wedding and it was a fantastic experience. The villa grounds are stunning, the rooms are lovely and big and to top it all, the food is to die for! Cortona is a great place to visit and if you are willing to stay somewhere outside of the main town/village (easily accessible by car (5-10 mins) you will be glad you stayed at Villa di Piazzano.

I spent a weekend at Villa di Piazzano for my friends' wedding. The place is simply magical. Dreamy landscape, stunning building with beautiful rooms all individually designed, delicious food and most importantly the best service I've ever experienced. Special thanks to Ruth and Lorella for making our stay so wonderful. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: I stayed in the room "I Pini", very comfy bed!
