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.
