It’s like swimming in a picture – as if someone has superimposed a Hockney on a Piero Della Francesco landscape painting.


Villa Pia is an award winning family villa in Lippiano, a traditional Italian town on the border of Umbria and Tuscany. The area remains as stunningly beautiful and unspoiled as it was 500 years ago.

Famed for inspiring the architecture, painting and sculpture of the Renaissance period, here civilisation and nature sit side by side.

Visit one of the many influential cities such as Florence, Cortona, Perugia, Pisa or Siena. Experience the warm evenings, welcoming people, medieval hill-towns and gastronomic delights of this beloved region.

The main house at Villa Pia is a 15th century Italian country manor house, once the summer residence for a Florentine family.

The large, rustic house plus converted barn and stables provide 17 bedrooms, all with private bathrooms. Every room is unique, retaining original and traditional features and furnishings.

We also accommodate guests in a beautiful restored building, “Palazzo Regina”, which can be found a short walk from our gates. It features 8 rooms divided into 2 interconnecting room suites and can accommodate four families, each with private bathrooms.

There is a living room and kitchen equipped with a toaster and microwave, as well as a fridge which is constantly stocked to ensure that you have unlimited access to fresh fruit, beer, wine, tea and coffee.

In the main house we have communal rooms for dining, and space for you and your family to relax, play games and enjoy music together.

The house opens out onto the courtyard, where guests play, chill, have breakfast and lunch, or enjoy an aperitivo.
