I stayed here with my wife in May 2012. Before arriving, the staff via email helped me set up several wine tours in Montepulciano and in Montalcino. The staff was unbelievably helpful. When we arrived, the grounds and the hotel were so beautifully kept.

Our room was perfect. We had a terrace leading outside to stone stairs that led us unto the grounds. It was filled with a lot of light and very comfortable. The breakfast was one of our best in Italy...fresh fruits, cheeses, meats, juices.

We drove into Montalcino from this location which was very scenic. I also did one night in Cortona. I highly recommend this place if you want a genuine tuscan experience.

My husband and I stayed in the Villa di Piazzano in September. This hotel is one of the best kept secrets in Italy. The staff and family are welcoming and very accomodating. Service is excellent. The rooms are very spacious and the decor is outstanding. The breakfasts and dinners were 5*. The chef is amazing. The views from the hotel are spectacular. This hotel is a must stay in Tuscany!

My wife and I spent two weeks in Italy, traveling with my brother-in-law and his partner. During that trip, we spent four nights at the Villa di Piazzano. We found this property to be the perfect blend between a "high end" hotel and a casual/friendly B&B. The setting is gorgeous, the Villa itself beautiful, the proprietors and staff incredibly friendly. We highly recommend this property to those looking for an out-of-the way place to stay in the Cortona region. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: We reserved the large suite in the front, left of the entrance. We loved the beautiful views out the...

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!

We were caught without accomodation while in the Cortona area and were advised to try Villa Di Piazzano and were surprised and truly impressed by the complete package. The rooms were spacious and luxurious, while the meals and breakfasts were excellent. The service and attention was as expected and we ended up staying longer than planned- will call again

Dear Guest,

I recall your unexpected arrival at the hotel. We were in an awkward situation trying to jump-start a guest's car and you arrived just in time to prevent us from inverting the cables. So your arrival at the hotel was mutually fortuitous.

It is always a pleasure to host fellow Australians and makes us feel proud and privileged to receive such nice comments from our guests. We also hope to be able to host you again on a future occasion.

Kind regards,

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.

Room Tip: The Junior Suite facing the hill that Cortona is situated is highly recommended.
