Our goal was to find a unique place to stay that had the real Italian feel vs a modern looking set up. It did not disappoint! The structure is pleasing to the eye with its brick lined walls and arches spread throughout the home. Everything we needed was provided for us. The kitchen/dining room is perfect for big parties to cook in and eat together. The family has extremely well kept grounds, keeping the pool clean as well as taking care of all of the beautiful flowers, succulents, and plants. While we were there it was hot during the day, so during down time it was nice to lounge by the pool. There were some volleyballs and a ping pong table set up, so those that didn’t want to swim had fun playing games. This villa is only about a 5 min drive to the train station and is also an easy drive up to the hilltop town Cortona. I’d recommend renting cars so it’s easy for a group to get to planned destinations on time. Since we had such a big group it was difficult to get taxis at certain times (usually early morning). If you’re going to the town close by or just want to venture out, there are plenty of bikes that we loved using! The whole reason we came to Italy was for a destination wedding. We wanted an intimate ceremony with our close friends and family. Once the family of the villa found out we wanted to wed in front of their home they were ecstatic! They let us use their beautiful plants, tables, chairs, and tablecloths to create what we were envisioning. Lorenzo even showed up to witness the ceremony and brought some unique surprises that really added to the magical evening. We are so grateful we met such a wonderful family that will be our forever friends and for staying at this villa. We all have the best memories when it comes to Villa Il Palazzo!

We were warmly greeted upon arrival, & promptly given a tour of the property & home. The hosts went above & beyond to be accommodating of our needs, answered all questions, & provided an excellent overall service. The home and grounds were clean & well kept. Each room was welcoming & comfortable. We enjoyed our time outside/swimming, visiting the hill-top City Cortona for food & shopping, and preparing meals as a group in the large kitchen/dining room. We planned our trip as a destination wedding, & cant enough about how fantastically the event went. Our host, Lorenzo, even surprised us with sparkling candles for our wedding cake, large paper hot-air balloon/lanterns, & even a special bottle of homemade Wine from his families private collection. The hosting family was warm, genuine, timely, professional, & an all-around joy to work with. We can not recommend them or Villa Il Palazzo more, 10 out of 10. We’ll go again, & look forward to booking a return trip. You will not be dissatisfied. Thanks to Lorenzo & Family for an absolutely unforgettable time. We will enjoy the memories made while there for a lifetime! Ciao!
