“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 via mobile

My husband and our 2 teenage children have just stayed in 2 rooms in Limonaia at this lovely, relaxed family-run hotel for a week in August. The main stucco Villa is very attractive with mellow brick-built 'annexes' scattered amongst the beautiful and well-maintained gardens. The outside dining terrace has wonderful views towards Cortona to the west and up into the green wooded hills. The inside of the hotel's main building is atmospheric & cosy. Alessandra Wimpole and her team are all marvellous - quietly and efficiently working very hard for all the guests.

Special mentions for Gabriella, the inspired & inspiring chef who produces delicious food, using top quality local produce, with a menu which one can happily eat from - and we did - for 6 nights in a row without being bored. (Special mention also for the fresh & beautifully presented salads, charcuterie or pasta which are on offer at lunchtime. Veronica, who is in charge of the 'dining room', is charming and a great sommelier with an exciting & fair-priced wine list. The drily amusing waiter Viktor mixes a mean G&T & Aperol Spritz in the evening & also a delicious cappuccino at breakfast.

All in all, Villa di Piazzano scores top marks in this lovely area on the Tuscan Umbrian border and despite staying in and dining at many different places every summer in Italy over the last 14 years, Gabriella & her kitchen definitely produce the best food so far! Thank you all for a super stay.

Really enjoyed our perfect but short rest between visiting hill-towns. Perfect cuisine, wine and very helpful staff. The room was upgraded as villa was not full - nice gesture from them.
Pool was excellent. Surroundings quiet. The recommendations in the morning for the next 2 days absolutely perfect - we followed them and didnt disappoint. Wish we could stay more.

Room Tip: First floor corner room (suite i think) with the pool view was perfect, didnt see other rooms

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Piazzano this summer. We had the opportunity to stay in the "Vegetable Cottage" for our three night stay and it was so peaceful and the entire team at the Villa made us feel so welcome the minute we arrived!!
We enjoyed our delicious dinner by chef Gabriela and was so excited to have the opportunity to chat with her after our dinner too! Breakfast was served on the patio with a gorgeous view of the country side and the many different breads, pastries, eggs, bacon etc prepared you to be ready to face a day of touring the beautiful city of Tuscany!
Our stay was filled with lots of great memories that we will have for years to come!!

We have visited Italy many times and our stay at Villa di Piazzano was one our most enjoyable experiences. The location, accommodation, cuisine and staff were all outstanding. Enjoyed visiting Cortona and Montepulciano especially.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the cottages, which was excellent, so can't comment on other rooms.

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!
