You know when you think of regional Italy .... well Villa di Piazzano was everything you could imagine done to perfection!!
We had a hire car and while finding which direction to go took a while (we had no GPS and knew very little Italian) once we found the signs we had no trouble. Unless you're going to stay here for the whole time, you will definitely need a hire car to be able to explore the region - but don't take this as a downside, it was a clear winner for us. Driving along the dirt road lined by trees to our exceptional accommodation set the standard pretty high. The amazing staff welcomed us and we even received a free upgrade on our arrival, which was very much appreciated.
The Junior Suite had AMAZING views that will remain etched in our memory for a very long time. Having time to explore the grounds was extremely soothing. The pool area was beautiful and we were lucky enough to have a really warm day to enjoy it.The daily breakfast was the BEST we had anywhere on our travels. Fresh quality food in abundance and once again, views that ensured that you relaxed - the way breakfast should be.
The staff were extremely helpful, and even at one point when they were rushed off there feet the owner stepped in to help us out. This level of service and commitment to it's clients are why we would definitely recommend Villa di Piazzano to everyone.
Cortona itself was simply amazing! It wasn't overrun with tourists and allowed us to experience the Tuscan lifestyle with huge amounts of jealousy. Our only regret is that we did not plan to stay here for longer ... much, much longer.
