Reviewed 21 August 2014

An absolutely wonderful experience in all regards. From the facilities to the entire team at Villa Piazzano, my family enjoyed seven wonderful days here. The food was excellent, and our cooking lessons with Chef Gabriela were awesome. We plan on returning next summer.!

Room Tip: there is not a bad location on the property.

A wonderful stay in the countryside, just a short ride to Cortona. Our family of 5 stayed for a few days to enjoy the Tuscany area. What a wonderful tree lined view on the way in! The villa was beautiful and well maintained. The grounds and rooms were well kept and the staff was friendly and helpful! Breakfast each morning was served on the patio and was delicious. We ate dinner at the villa one evening on the patio. The view over the countryside was amazing as the sun was setting, and our meal, prepared by Gabriella was just delicious! We had a fabulous time on our stay in the Tuscan countryside!

The villa is near Cortona in beautiful southern Tuscany.
After a warm, friendly welcome the delights keep coming. The rooms are very comfortable, the grounds peaceful and very therapeutic and then you find the crystal clear pool.
The villa has the best breakfast in Europe and the a la carte menu is just as good.
I was at the villa for ten days with 12 family and friends to celebrate my birthday and Alesandra, her parents and all the staff made the whole experience amazing. We all had a wonderful time exploring the area including Florence and Sienna as well as many gorgeous and ancient villages in the local area. But it was always great to come "home" to the villa.
The next time I am in Europe this villa will be my last stay for a some peace and tranquillity before returning home. I just loved it.

From the moment you enter the tree lined avenue, you can feel the serenity. The villa is superbly maintained, beautiful doesn't begin to describe this Italian gem. The staff were friendly and I felt welcome. Thoroughly recommend a visit. Hope to be back soon

We visited Villa di Piazzano with 14 people for a 50th Birthday for a week! Alissandra and her family have built a wonderful experience 10 minutes off the A1, centrally located 5 minutes from Cortona an hour from Firenze, Sienna, San Gignano and Multipuciano. From the time we called to the day we left we were treated as though we were long time friends. Alice, Francesca and Lorella helped us with arrangements of drivers and restaurants,

The property is in 'the country' with beautiful grounds, character in every room. Great food by chef Gabriela :) Perfect for a quiet ,romantic getaway or book a few rooms and enjoy with friends or family!

We look forward to returning in the near future! :) We met many people that make the visit periodically.

Room Tip: Connect with Alissandra and ask for what you'd like. She will arrange the right room for you.

After three magical visits to Villa di Piazzano I have advised my friends and family that if I mysteriously disappear with luggage - look here first. We have enjoyed Villa di Piazzano with as a couple, again with good friends and most recently with our daughter. Over the years we developed a warm friendship with Gabriella Lavorato - Piazzano's head Chef and one of the most charming cooking instructors on the planet. We met Gabriella at another venue for cooking lessons years ago - we were pleased to discover that she had (coincidentaily) joined forces with one of our favorite places on earth. Her cooking is wonderful and considerable charm completes the package. We have referred many many friends to Villa di Piazzano over the years and have not had a single bad report. This is one of those rare places that you can recommend with confidence over time. The great expense, effort and love devoted to the property is evident on all levels - from the owners to gardners. We will visit again - absolutely.

Room Tip: Ask about the larger rooms on second and third floors of the main house.

This is a gem and deserves a great recommendation. We stayed two nights and it was not enough but had other parts of Italy to visit. Would we return ? Heck yes ! Great people that own it and very friendly
