One of our best holidays ever was the one we spent at Villa di Piazzano in August 2003. We still think about it often: the beauty of the landscape, the renovated villa with its classic furniture, the spacious bedrooms with king size beds. The tranquillity of the surrounding area, the hills in Umbria bordering Tuscany. The beautiful weather during the day that is so typical for this region. Enjoying the rest, reading a good book and an occasional dive in the pool and lunch consisting of a salad and good glass of white wine under the cooling shade of the plane-trees. The experience alone and then the friendliness of the Wimpole family who run this hotel. These are people who truly understand the art of pampering you in a way that will linger in your mind for a long time. Mama's homemade pasta: delicious. The hours on the terrace while enjoying a decent glass of wine with the host and other interesting foreign guests: an experience that still warms our hearts. We felt like we were in paradise for a while.
