“Umbria at its finest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2011

My wife and I came across this amazing hotel in order to locate near Cortona.Little did we know of the Villa's place in history dating from the 1400's and yet so full of modern day conveniences. The once magnificent hunting lodge owned by the Cardinal of Cortona maintains its regal splendor through today. the attentive staff and, indeed, even the owner work to provide an unforgettable experience. the complimentary buffet breakfast and the five-star alfresco dining by the garden were magical. the location is prime for exploring the hillside villages which beckon daily romantic outings. All said, this was a divine way to complete our second honeymoon!

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor suite upgrade

This intimate luxury hotel has it all! We were wowed by our upgraded accomdations and the brakfast and dinners were the finest we were served bar none. The owner took us on an insider's tour of this ageless wonder complete with tales of the Cardinal of Cotona, the convent conversion and the Nazi field headquarters. We loved the location and truly would rate this simply "the best."

The hotel staff were excellent. The room and meals at the hotel were wonderful. We took a Tuscan cooking class that was great.

Our group of 26 family and friends stayed at Villa di Piazzano to celebrate our wedding in May 2011. The genuine warmth, generosity and attention to detail by all of the staff, and the quality of the facilities and food was exceptional.

After five months to reflect on our time at the Villa, all of us are only left wishing we had stayed longer, infact some of our group are making plans to return.

The breakfasts were to die for, the service at every meal outstanding, and Gabriella’s Tiramisu was superb not to mention the wine selection and the ambiance at the Villa simply perfect.

The plans for our wedding went without a hitch and this was entirely due to the amazing support shown us by the staff, particularly Allessandra, Ruth and Damien.

As an example of the generosity; when our interpreter advised at short notice that she was unable to attend, it was Damien who insisted he could step in to interpret the ceremony. He brought great style to the occasion!

There are 124 reviews that have rated this complex highly and we would like to be the 125th.

This is one truly stunning establishment in every sense and we will return one day to celebrate an anniversary of what was a truly unforgettable experience.

We wanted to see Cortona and Villa Di Piazzano rated highly on Trip Advisor as a place to stay. We were not disappointed, this place is a gem. A little hard to find initially and I would recommend that you have your own car, but such great value. The owners and staff are so genuine and kind, with every recommendation a winner, both in places to see, shop and eat. The food at the Villa is excellent in itself, but also try the neapolitan style fish restaurant in nearby Camucia! The rooms are huge and charming, views stunning. Bearing in mind that the house is over 500 years old there may be a few little things to put up with, like inadequate noise insulation against loud neighbours. But I would definitely stay here again.

A lovingly restored Villa close by yet far from the maddening crowds in Cortona. We really enjoyed our two nights in the countryside. The staff and owners were a delight......enjoyed visiting before and during the evening meals. The hotel and our room was very comfortable -the finest bathroom fittings of the entire trip. The grounds, patio, pool and gardens were so lovely on those hot, sunny Sept days.....so pleasant as we had little "summer" in the Seattle area where we live. I think the Villa is a jewel and hope to return - I would recommend to friends.
My only suggestion would be a floor lamp near chairs for reading in the evening.

After our disappointing stay a Torre di Bellosguardo hotel near Florence we were fortunate to stay at the Villa di Piazzano near Cortona.What a difference! You arrive to a nicely restored country villa that is well run with relaxed and friendly atmosphere.Tha staff is very helpful and friendly .The owners mix easily with the guests and are source of interesting information about the area and the hotel which used to be one of the retreats for a cardinal.
Our room was well appointed, quiet and comfortable. The cleanliness of the hotel is excellent. The breakfast buffet is wonderful with wide selection of fresh and well chosen food. It was difficult to stop eating. The dinner is served on a terrace outside above the pool or inside if you wish. The service is impecable.The food is excellent .We would always come back after our our day trips to dine there.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anybody.It is a good base to explore southern part of Tuscany and Umbria. I only wish we had this information available ahead of time as we would have planned our trip differently. There is so much to see there that one can not do justice to the region in short 6 days.We missed most of Umbria too !

Room Tip: Plan ahead of time as there is much to see.Spoletto was disappointing but Orvietto is a must.
