We drove in from Rome and arrived at the Villa de Piazzano in three hours. Once we arrived at the Villa, you immediately felt you were in Tuscany with the surrounding lush landscape and the tranquility of the countryside..This is a good base to discover the nearby towns. There were a few things that made our stay the most memorable. Upon arrival, you immediately feel the genuine warmth and hospitality of the staff and is carries through the rest of your stay..The rooms have old world charm and are large, with attention to detail, and a breathtaking view of the grounds where the sounds of singing birds awake you in the morning..The dining experience was especially memorable and that has a lot to do with Chef Gabriela and her gracious staff. She and her staff are warm and congenial and make you feel like you are at home..We tasted the most delicious Pici pasta..a special pasta of the area only,made with breadcrumbs. Be sure to buy some in town and take back home as it is hard to find. .the panna cotta topped with wild cherries of the area was to die for.. There are also small appetizers presented by the bar which were delicious and and a welcomed touch. When you come back after a day of exploring, you may see an assistant chef collecting items needed for dinner that night from their homegrown garden..Congrats to Francesca, Katia, Marco, Stella, Alice Gabriela and the Wimpole family for contributing to making our stay so memorable.
