Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Cortona, Italy your home away from home

To take a holiday villa in Cortona, an ancient and noble city, is to travel back to Italy’s past. Cortona is a magnificent destination with a tangible atmosphere and some of the best artistic heritage outside Venice and Florence. Set high in the hills of Arezzo, Tuscany, Cortona offers magnificent views over Lake Trasimeno and of the Apennines.

The fishing available from a self catering villa in Cortona revolves around Lake Trasimene, and is varied, extensive and extremely tranquil.

The city is characterised by the steep, narrow streets and medieval buildings of the Piazza Garibaldi, which give the city a fantastically timeless atmosphere. To get a clearer understanding of the long and fascinating history of the city, the Musee dell’Accademia Etrusca in Palazzo Pretorio will supply all the answers. The incredible archaeological heritage of Cortona and the surrounding area has been recorded and reserved in the Parco e del Museo Archeologico di Cortona.

The artistic treasures of Cortona include the two panels in the Diocesan Museum and the fresco adorning the entrance of the Church of San Domenico by Fra Angelico.

The setting is typically Umbrian/Tuscan and the property itself is lovely. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The heating on the pool meant that it was at a lovely temperature even early in the season before the sun really gets going. Trestina is the nearest town (10 min drive) and has all the necessary amenities with supermarkets etc. Cortona, Città di Castello and Umbertide are all 25 minutes away, very beautiful and with great restaurants, shops and evening entertainment and markets in the mornings. However, there are also closer restaurants with our favourite place only 5 minutes away in the next village. And we loved that we could by the odd item in the little shop in the village. Christina & Richard were fabulous hosts. They were on hand to offer valuable advice on everything from where to eat to the best places to shop (including the best markets to visit). We loved the fact that we could relax by the wonderful pool during the day and that there were so many lovely small to middle sized towns to visit near by. Fantastic!

The villa itself is simply but stylishly decorated, with all the comforts you need for your stay. The pool and views are wonderful. We had a very relaxing stay with our teenage children. Panicale is only a very short distance away with charming bars, restaurants and a few shops. The location is perfect for visiting the sights of Umbria and Tuscany. We thoroughly recommend this villa and will definitely return one day. The Barnett family
