My wife and I stayed here for our first weekend away since our little boy was born. We couldn’t have asked for a more romantic and warm stay. The architecture and amenities were perfect, beautifully decorated, with modern functionality yet paying just the right respect to the history of the building and the region. The restaurants, both of them, served some of the best meals we have ever had. The Trattoria had great pasta, salads and pizza in a really lovely space. Ristorante Zafferano served us a meal of a lifetime. Honestly after 30 years of international business and fine dining on the road, Zafferano was tops, no question. Orlando was a treat with unassuming competence served up with a side of humor. A Sincere and Warm Thank You for making this short 3 days away something we will remember forever. We will be back as soon as my wife works up the courage for another weekend away! X

We were disappointed with Hotel Vannucci. We chose the hotel because of the good reviews of their restaurants. Their web site said that their more formal restaurant would be closed, but that their more casual restaurant would be open. When we arrived, we saw a sign saying that both restaurants were closed.

Also, the hotel was undergoing renovations near our room and there was noise all day until about 8 PM. In our room, the window screen was torn and let flies in and the toilet seat was loose. We found that the towel bar wouldn't heat up, and two men spent about an hour emptying black liquid from it before it would work.

The reception staff was exceptionally pleasant and helpful.

Once again 11 days at Hotel Vannucci with 26 others as my guests and it gets better every year. We are always greeted with such warmth and consideration. Orlando, Beatrice, and the staff work with such enthusiasm to make our stay enjoyable and a total success. Chef Vito had raised the bar again this year and I can only imagine what next year will present. The restaurant on the property is so convenient after a day of moving about Umbria. Being from Texas, we don’t normally eat steak in Italy but this year we indulged at the Trattoria Pievese (Vannucci) and were totally impressed. It was the best steak we have had in Europe. Congratulations to Allison, the owner, who has created an artistically contemporary, warm, and inviting space in an ancient village. What a beautiful contrast! Love and gratitude to Hotel Vannucci staff!

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the village rooftops...top floor.

The hotel is very well situated for exploring the town, as well as the beautiful surrounding countryside. The staff could not have been more engaging and helpful. Our room was well equipped and spacious . The restaurant service was excellent, and the food high quality. The choice of wines was outstanding with first class advice on what to choose! There was a well equipped gym in the basement to ensure we had an appetite and thirst which could do justice to the food and wine.
We could not have had a more relaxing time, in a more welcoming environment. We will be back!

Located within the beautiful medieval town of Citta della Pieve, this is an excellent base for exploring the famous hill towns of Tuscany. Nothing is too much trouble for the friendly and professional staff, who take pride in providing a high level of service, a stylish and relaxing ambience and great food and wine. The talented head chef uses local ingredients creatively--we enjoyed some excellent meals. Citta della Pieve itself is set in the middle of dramatic countryside and combines lovely medieval architecture, including several churches, with a good selection of small shops, wine bars and sidewalk cafes. A great place for a weekend, but next time we'd like to stay longer!

This hotel has the best positioning in Citta della Pieve, the ambiance is welcoming and makes you feel at home. It was a delight to meet the staff, they were extremely helpful and always had an answer to questions, as well as having a great command of the English language. Orlando catered to our every need and not only did we have superb service, but it came with humour and amateur dramatics to suit every occasion!

Everything is at your fingertips - the town centre is quintessentially Tuscan, and we had the great privelage to see the traditional flag throwing, which was skillfully done and a real treat.

Rooms were exactly what you want when you are away from home, all your home comforts, whilst being immaculate and incorporating the beautiful italian style of the local region.

The food was amazing, the portions very generous, which was just wonderful and you never left the table feeling less than fully satisfied with their range of both delicious foods and local wines.

Truly a wonderful place to have a holiday as a couple, family or even group of friends. If you've had a busy year and want a home away from home in a beautiful setting to relax and forget about the world, this is the place to go. Thank you for an amazing stay.

We expected beautiful countryside and wonderful food from our visit to Umbria, but our visit to Hotel Vannucci and the beautiful Citta della Pieve exceeded ALL our expectations. From the moment of our arrival, the service was attentive and warm. The food was scrumptuous and I recommend you listen to the staff's recommendations - they seem to know what you want before you do! The central location of the hotel makes touring easy and we spent a few days touring the architectural and artistic treasures of Orvieto, Montepulciano and Perugia. But don't forget to take time and enjoy Citta della Pieve; meander its beautiful and historic streets, visit its friendly cafes and wine bars and peep into the many churches, with their Perugino frescos.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel for the best views.
