The Villa di Piazzano converted Tuscan villa in the countryside about 10-15 minutes drive from Cortona. The setting amongst the fields and with a view of Cortona and surrounding hills is very beautiful. The grounds and gardens are very attractive and pleasant to explore.
A particular highlight for me was the swimming pool which is large for the size of hotel and still usable in late September and a great place to chill out if you want to take a day off from exploring Tuscany. We stayed around all day and whilst the restaurant does not serve lunch the hotel will put together platters of cold meats, cheese and salad for lunch on the terrace on request.
Our room was spacious and very comfortable with a suitably oldie worldy feel. The restaurant serves very good evening meals although the ambience in the dining room felt a bit formal and stifling for me. That may be different in the summer when you can eat on the terrace. The breakfast was one of the best we had in Tuscany with a variety of croissants and cakes. Very much recommended!
