We returned from Villa di Piazzano a few weeks ago. The pool is set in a stunning location surrounded by the Tuscan hills. The breakfast is delicious with FRESH FRUIT salad every morning. They had different selections of cereals such as Special K and fruit n' fibre, great selection of yoghurt and plenty of croissants and even prosciutto ham - Yum!
We were in a junior suite and had a huge king size canopy bed with two windows overlooking the garden. The bathroom was great and also had a great view. We chose this location mainly for the restaurant since we wanted to just relax rather than having to drive around each night searching for a place to eat. It seems that most places in this area are just b&b and the restaurants in Cortona mostly have indoor dining rooms which is a bit stifling in the summer so were glad to have found a place where we could dine on a terrace in the gardens. I calculated we paid around Euro 35 per person, excluding the wine, which to us did not seem expensive but rather good value for money. On the Tuesday we had a cooking lesson and saw the kitchen and also how they prepare the food and we realized how much preparation goes into their cuisine. They produce fesh pasta on a daily basis and bake their own bread. This was really a pleasant ending to our vacation in Italy and we certainly will be coming back. Cheers to the Wimpole family!
