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.Read more[SPLIT]Read less
