Located a few kilometres from Cortona, Villa di Piazzano dominates the surrounding landscape, offering guests relaxing views over the beautiful Tuscan countryside, dotted with endless expanses of vineyards and olive groves.
The elegant period residence enjoys a privileged location within easy reach of many of Tuscany and close-lying Umbria’s places of interest: Pienza, Montepulciano, Arezzo, Perugia, Gubbio, Assisi.
A former hunting lodge built in 1464, this magical corner of Tuscany was discovered by the Wimpole family in 1998. Renovated in full respect of its past, Villa di Piazzano today is a place devoted to hospitality, where tasteful elegance and bucolic nature meet. The villa is set deep in its own large garden, a century-old park protected by the Superintendent for Environmental Heritage due to its natural importance. The beautiful pool with its sundeck nestles in this oasis of relaxation and tranquillity.
The 30 rooms at Villa di Piazzano are spread across two floors and in buildings adjacent to the main villa, fully respecting the original layout of the villa. Tastefully designed and with elegant furnishings, rooms are available in different sizes and with different views: rooms on the second floor have smaller windows but offer the best views.

Lovers of fine wine will appreciate the villa’s ancient cellar that hosts guided tastings and themed evenings. The restaurant is closed on Tuesdays.
