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.

We are currently planning a return trip to the area and I just perused the TA page for V di P to restore fond memories of our stay in 2006. It is not a timely review, but I was so upset seeing 2 "terrible" reviews that I was prompted to write. We had nothing but exceptional service, food, friendliness and recommendations from Ms. Wimpole and her staff. The property is gorgeous, our room was so beautiful, comfortable and romantic I still remember walking in the first time and giggling that this was to be my home for days. I think some people are just miserable creatures and look to find fault with anything. A TV channel you can't see, spotty internet service, spiders in the countryside? Really? It's called vacation, or holiday for a reason.

All in all we had a pleasant stay enjoying the calm surroundings.
Situation excellent, as decribed by other comments. Difficult to find as not on a GPS marked road.Very easy to communicate in several languages.
Need for improved cleanliness particular in pool area. Water quality not optimal, strong chlorine smell. The whole complex is poorly lit due to traditional small windows. Therefor more or stronger electrical lamps would be needed. We had a junior suite of adequate size well furnished. There are lots of beautiful places in the building and outside to relax.
Kitchen is more international, not very tuscan as claimed. It is hard to compete with a good number of excellent restaurants in the area.

My wife and I decided to spend 2 nights here after visiting the F1 in Monza. We booked online quite late and arrived the next day to find this beautiful jewel of a property just minutes from neighbouring Cortona. The staff, service and food were all exceptional and after reading other reviews it is fair to say I have run out of superlatives for this beautiful place. Do what we did don't think just go!!!

What a wonderful summer holiday!! It's been 3 weeks since our return home to the UK and our little boy (4.5yr old) still asks when we are going back. It was a fantastic holiday. Our 15month old daughter loved it too. Lots of sun, swimming, great food, amazing Tuscan scenery and lovely people to meet. The rooms were very spacious and beautifully appointed. And Allesandra and her family were the most gracious hosts. A perfect two weeks!
