Great villa in a lovely neighbourhood

  • 4 out of 5
We are three generations, 3 families spending holiday in La Poventa.
We enjoyed our holidays a lot. The house is sufficient for ten people to live comfortably. The outside area is really charming with the wonderful swimming pool and adorable garden.
The owner of the house was really helpful, when our kid got ill. He helped us with the doctor who spoke no English a lot.
Emiliano, Thank you for your help ang great food we had the chance to eat in your restaurant. Recommend it a lot ( Cortona ).
The property is also very convieniently located if you wish to explore Tuscany and Umbria.

Lots of space for families

  • 4 out of 5
My extended family of 9 stayed at La Poventa. It's a great place for large families with lots of space for everyone. The lovely stone walls kept the place cool despite 35-40C temperatures. The pool and outdoor eating area were fabulous as was the view of Cortona. We watched the sun set and moonrise every night. It is well situated for day trips in the area. A car is necessary. The owner was attentive and available to help with any issues we had. Only one complaint; it could have been a little cleaner.
