We were in Cortona with our year old son to get married and could not have booked a better place to stay. I haven't stopped recommending since we got back!
Everything people say about this place is true. Not only is the accommodation perfect and location magical, you have the perfect host in Andrea.
The first night we arrived my son was poorly and had a very high temperature - Andrea gave us his number and his fathers and said not to worry how late it was but if we needed a dr to ring. I found out a few days later that at the time Andrea's wife was in hospital after a crash.Unless he told you, you would never have known as at no point did his attentiveness and eager to please and look after his guests falter.
The garden areas and pool area were beautifully maintained and it was so peaceful and relaxing to sit outside during the day and night. You easily forgot you were there with other guests!
Mornings were glorious, waking up above the clouds.
It was a perfect holiday in ever way. Not only did we get married whilst there but staying here really helped make it a special holiday.
The great thing about here is it caters for all, young old, couples, families - yes there is no activities for children such as 'club, climbing frames etc' but there is a pool and gardens and your imagination which is better than anything else.
Whilst here you eat at Borgo Di Vagli. Had a lovely meal and they were so helpful with our son - we forgot his cup but they had one they could provide and played with him.
I really can't say enough about this place - stay here and see for yourself

"Andrea's farmhouse is a very special place, made more so by its host, Andrea. We spent a wonderful week here for our honeymoon and had the most amazing and happy time. From the moment we arrived, Andrea made us feel so welcome and at home. The cake was a lovely gesture and incredibly tasty! Our apartment was beautiful, in a fantastic location with wonderful views of the Pierle Valley. The gardens and pool are gorgeous and it is clear that Andrea takes great pride in the entire property, working hard to ensure guests have a great holiday. You'll need a car to get out-and-about but lots to see in the area, including Cortona, Siena and Montepulciano. We will definitely be going back. A truly magical place. Thank you Andrea."

Mg husband, daughter and I stayed at Rocca Di Pierle for five days. Andrea was a wonderful host, who welcomed us with a cake freshly baked by his wife, and provided us with great local advice. The pool was a perfect place to relax and unwind after days out exploring beautiful Cortona and other cities. It was a wonderful holiday. We would be very happy to return one day!

We have just returned from another wonderfully enjoyable and relaxing holiday in Rocca di Pierle. We first discovered this property in 2006 and have returned every year since then. From our perspective this is the ideal holiday destination. The location is idyllic, overlooking as it does the beautiful and tranquil Niccone valley. It is within easy reach of all the major Tuscan and Umbrian sites. The apartments are extremely well equipped and the gardens and pool beautifully maintained. The fact that there are only three apartments in the property ensures that the peace and tranquillity of the valley is replicated in the property.
While all the foregoing are important factors in drawing us back to Rocca di Pierle each year the most important factor is undoubtedly the hospitality of the owner manager, Andrea Luchini and the extended Luchini family. This is a type of hospitality rarely encountered nowadays - the welcome is exceptionally warm, helpul advice and assistance (in excellent English) is generously provided and every effort is made to ensure that their guests have a memorable and enjoyable holiday. They work extremely hard at this and deserve all the success that their business is currently enjoying. We look forward to returning next year.

For our fiftieth wedding anniversary, our children gave us a three week vacation in Italy. Having been in Italy several times, we decided to enjoy Tuscany and all of the art, history and natural beauty that it offers. We choose Rocca di Pierle because of its' centrality to the many historical sites that we wanted to visit. How were we to know that we had choosen a real Pearl, so naturally beautiful and serene that when the sun rose, and the valley below was shrouded in morning mist, no adjatives were adequate to describe it - other than possibly Magical! We were much impressed with the property itself; everything you needed to live comfortably and everything first class. Couple that with the most hospitable owners/Hosts, Andrea, his Dad Stephano, and their lovely wives and you have a stay that is beyond your most exacting expectations. We had places too far afield to visit as day trips during our third week, however, at the conclussion of our stay, we seriously considered extending for a third week, but there was no room at the Inn. Highly Recommended! *****

Room Tip: I believe the two apartments on the upper floor have a superior view
