As frequent travelers to Italy my husband and I are always looking for hotels that express the unique beauty and feel of each region. We have found the perfect spot to experience Tuscany: Villa di Piazzano. We fell in love with the place on our first visit and have returned many times since.
This is a centuries-old villa set in a breathtaking valley that has been renovated with exceptional taste. We have stayed in several different rooms and they are all elegant and comfortable, we have never been disappointed. It's centrally located within Tuscany so places like Perugia, Siena, Montalcino, etc. are all easy day trips and the ancient town of Cortona is just right up the hill. However, the villa is so lovely you don't need to go anywhere! The pool is nice and large (not like the "ponds" so many Italian hotels call pools) and we have often found ourselves postponing our planned excursions as our "quick swim" turns into hours lounging at the pool. The food at the villa is delicious and we've spent several days eating all our meals there starting with their generous breakfast, then lunch on the patio, an aperitif with a good book or a game of cards under the trees (usually after a nap of course), and dinner al fresco. The villa offers total relaxation Italian-style.
It's a great place for families, our kids love it! The large grassy gardens give them plenty of space to play and they have always felt very comfortable and welcomed. I also highly recommend Villa di Piazzano for couples. On our most recent trip my husband and I stayed without the kids and really enjoyed its romantic atmosphere. Each visit has been so special. I can't wait to return!
