HOTELS & ACCOMMODATION
In Italy, when a local walks into the village shop, bar or hotel, they announce their presence with a respectful 'buongiorno'. Throw off your reserved, normal self and try it as you enter any of our hotels and be treated to an extra warm-welcome, as if you are a returning friend.
Our choice of accommodation tends towards being the smaller, family-run hotels and country houses, often without concierge or room service and providing an authentic experience.
★★★★ VILLA di PIAZZANO, CORTONA
The antique furniture, fabrics and warm tones of the frescoed walls, of this majestic villa, confer a discreet luxury. Built in the early 1500s by Cardinal Silvio Passerini, a protegè of the Medici’s, to serve as his hunting manor.
Located midway between Rome and Florence is Cortona, the Balcony of Tuscany and the start and finish point for your electric Bike Safari.

★★★ LIVERNANO, RADDA in CHIANTI
It is quite likely that, once you are here, you will not want to leave.
This hill-top idil is so quiet and tranquil, you may just be disturbed by the sound of your own heart beat. Just allow the atmosphere to draw you in, aided by a glass of the very best Chianti Classico crafted from the vines on the hill below.
