Villa di Piazzano

Villa di Piazzano welcomes children from 7 years old. 

This hotel is seasonal and welcoming guests from April to October.

Down-to-earth luxury at this Renaissance country estate in the Tuscan hills

When you arrive at Villa di Piazzano, you’ll experience a warm Italian welcome that’s made visitors feel at home for over 500 years. This historic estate was originally the hunting lodge of Cardinal Passerini, a favourite of the Medicis. Wild boar may still be a seasonal delicacy here, but today this luxury hotel is devoted to far more relaxing pursuits.

From the moment you’re greeted at the door, Villa di Piazzano begins to work its magic. Time seems to move more slowly – allowing every day to be spent exactly as you wish. Wander from your peaceful, heritage-inspired room to the sun-soaked pool. Or grab a bike and head out to tackle some of those Tuscan hills. When you’ve worked up an appetite, sit down to an ultra-local Italian feast at the restaurant, where the vegetables are plucked fresh from the hotel gardens.

Set on the border between Tuscany and Umbria, Villa di Piazzano puts you in pride of place for discovering the region’s highlights. Explore captivating medieval cities like Siena. Or hop over the border to pretty Perugia. Cortona, with its Renaissance piazzas and ancient Etruscan heritage, is just 10 minutes away by car - and there are always the hotel's e-bicycles if you fancy a picturesque pedal. Of course, you’d be forgiven for staying put – Villa di Piazzano casts a spell that’s hard to break. 


Enjoy your stay!

Independent Minds: Alessandra Wimpole

When hospitality is part of your heritage, as it is for Alessandra Wimpole, whose grandmother began a thriving hotel business in Rome in the 1950s, choosing a hotel with history seemed only natural when continuing her family’s traditions. It was love at first sight for Alessandra when visiting Villa di Piazzano, an abandoned estate in Tuscany which was originally built in the 1500s as the hunting lodge of Cardinal Passerini, a favourite of the Medicis.

A tranquil and charming, beautiful in every way stay.

From the moment we arrived we felt so taken care of. Not only is the property itself incredibly beautiful (the photos online do not do it justice at all), but the staff are even more incredible. Everyone is so kind and helpful. We couldn't get over the sheer beauty of the property from the tree lined Read more[SPLIT]Read lessentrance, the charming outdoor dining area overlooking the pool, to the incredible library parlor in the main building overlooking the garden. One of our favorite parts was a small shaded section of seating underneath some trees looking far out towards the town of Cortona up on the hill, and we were served a bottle of wine as we watched the sunset over the hills. Overall we had an amazing stay and would absolutely come back again.

Food And Drinks

In a region with as strong a culinary heritage as Tuscany, it’s no surprise Villa di Piazzano’s chefs don’t need to look far for inspiration. The restaurant has embraced the ‘Kilometre Zero’ philosophy, sourcing seasonal ingredients from its own gardens and nearby producers. Feast on local delicacies – courgette flowers in summer, wild boar in autumn and Tuscan wine from the hotel cellars all year round. If you fancy picking up some tips to take home, Villa di Piazzano also runs cooking classes.

L Antica Casina di Caccia

Served Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner The Ristorante L Antica Casina di Caccia serves Italian dishes inspired by the regional Tuscan cuisine with fresh produce from our organic kitchen garden. We respect a 0 km philosophy. The name pays homage to the original owner- Cardinal Silvio Passerini- who once used the Villa as his hunting estate. In the summer months the outdoor pergola offers stunning views of the lush green hills and romantic sunsets.
