Luxury Villa di Piazzano is a "Historical Residence" dating back to the Renaissance. Once the hunting manor of Cardinal Silvio Passerini, the Villa today offers a genuinely warm hospitality, reminiscent of an old world country estate where the Italian ritual of welcoming guests is maintained to the highest level. The hotel is strategically placed on the border between Tuscany and Umbria and thus a good base to visit the many medieval towns in both regions. Pienza, Montepulciano, Siena, Arezzo, Perugia, Deruta, Gubbio, Assisi are just a few of the nearby attractions. The proximity to Cortona makes the hotel a good base for those travellers who want to be close to town (5 minutes by car) yet still be able to enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of the Italian countryside.
