Andrea is the host you'd want to take along, everywhere you go!
His place is so cosy, comfortable and relaxing, we will surely come back.
Thanks to his hospitality and high level of service, we have enjoyed our stay very much.
This place is built in the lovely village Pierle, an adorable little Tuscan hide away.
We have made great walks, just right out of the apartments, right into the beautiful hills. One walk leads you to the old Roman roads, and to a summit o 927 meters.

Room Tip: Be sure to book ahead, this place is small and very popular!

We have just returned from yet another holiday in the paradise that is the Niccone Valley on the Tuscany - Umbria border. As is usual for us now we stayed in Rocca di Pierle with Andrea and Silvia Luchini who, in our opinion, provide an unbeatable standard of hospitality.
Due to a higher than usual level of rain in June the lawns and shrubbery were in immaculate condition. Andrea has again upgraded the standard of the accomodation. New flat screen TVs and satellite boxes have been installed in each apartment. A state of the art audio visual system (including a large widescreen TV) has been installed in a new, beautifully designed, communal entertainment room - ideal for watching major sporting events like the World Cup. Andrea also hosts wine tastings here for which he has built up a list of comprehensive Tuscan and Umbrian wines with a particular emphasis on the wines of Cortona. Cookery classes are held here also.
Continuous improvement and a genuine interest in providing the best possible holiday for his guests seem to be Andrea's guiding principles. We were planning our next year's holiday in Rocca di Pierle on our journey home - it is that kind of place.

My wife and I were looking for a place with character, class, and small footprint. Rocca di Pierle was a haven for us in the heart of beautiful Italy. We loved the manicured grounds, beautiful views, and proximity to small villages for grocery and other shopping. It only took us 17 minutes to drive to Cortona, which we visited several times on our 6-day stay.

Andrea and his wife, Silvia, hosted an amazing wine-tasing evening for just us and the other people in the estate. Very private, personal, and well done. After many meats, pastas, cheeses and wines, we only had to walk 40 feet back to our apartment.

The apartment was very clean with designer details and lots of tech gadgets.

We were wondering how a small boutique place could provide what they offered, but they met all of our expectations and beyond. We would love to take our family back there soon.

Recommendations: Rent a car or else you'll have a hard time getting there and getting around to all the great villages and cities in the area. Pay attention to the times the village and town shops are open. We wanted to buy food or see places several times and the places were closed.

Would love to go back and stay at Rocca di Pierle!

Nice and peaceful nest hidden in the Tuscan hills. Not too far from interesting historical sights. Apartment, garden and pool were great. Our host Andrea took really good care of us. We had a very relaxing vacation in Rocca di Pierle.

My husband and I had the absolute best vacation of our lives at Rocca. The accomodations were outstanding, clean and spacious, fully stocked with every amenity you could want. The property is beautiful, a piece of old world Italy with positively breathtaking settings. Our host, Andrea, could not have been nicer. Andrea's advice on dining (even making our reservations) led to some of the most delicious food in Tuscany. His advice on what cities to visit, alternate routes and timing our visits allowed us to see much more of the countryside then we would have dreamed possible. Andrea being on the property daily and welcoming our every question, conversation and giving his well informed opinions made our vacation more than we could have ever imagined. I cannot wait to return to the property!!

Room Tip: Every apartment is perfect!!

I can heartily recommend a visit to Rocca di Pierle. The location is stunningly beautiful with breathtaking views. The apartment and gardens were of a high standard and clearly very lovingly maintained. Andrea was a wonderful host and couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. Our holiday was an enjoyable and relaxing experience. You do need a car. There are local shops within a few minutes drive and a variety of restaurants in Cortona and the surrounding villages.

Couldn't have asked for more. The spot is so relaxing we extended our stay which Andrea made very easy for us. He is the perfect host and went out of his way to be helpful. The facilities are done to very high standards. I have no reservations in giving this holiday 5 stars.
