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.

Places to holiday in Cortona, Italy

Lake Trasimene is the largest stretch of water in the Italian Peninsula. It is a beautiful lake, surrounded on three sides by hills. The banks are covered in beautiful flora and fauna, and there is a considerable variety of bird life. The fishing available from a self catering villa in Cortona revolves around Lake Trasimene, and is varied, extensive and extremely tranquil.

Things to do in Cortona, Italy

When you first arrive at your holiday rental in Cortona, the first thing to investigate are the 3,000 year old city walls, much of which remains in tact, and the Medici Fortress which menacingly dominates the skyline. 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.

Sporting holidays to Cortona are popular especially with cyclists. The mountain biking trails are of particular note, and there are bike hire available in the city. Touring from a Cortona apartment or holiday villa is also considered a fantastic method of exploring the surrounding countryside.

Weather in Cortona, Italy

Cortona enjoys a dry, warm climate. Summer temperatures remain pleasant, with monthly averages of 23°C in July and August. Winters also remain mild, with average temperatures in the coldest months of January and February remaining around the 10°C mark, allowing you to discover this magnificent city and the treasures within by foot all year round.

Travel to Cortona, Italy

Cortona’s holiday villas are closest to Florence Airport (FLR), and cheap flights do arrive directly from the UK. However, for the majority of good deals on cheap flights to Cortona, and for the most regular service, Rome Airport (FCO) is the best option.

Wonderful

5 of 5
Under the guise of celebrating a birthday milestone, I persuaded my family to spend a week in this amazing house. Three generations under one roof and everyone had the most special of times. I can not thank Ashleigh enough for being so patient with me before we confirmed our booking (whilst I checked that the whole family was happy and we could sort flights etc) and then recommending places to eat and visit. Meanwhile on the ground we were greeted by Patritzia who really could not do enough for us - a lasagne and shopping as ordered on arrival and even arranged a trip to a local Olive Oil processing business. She could not have done more. We were also lucky enough to help with the harvesting of olives from the trees in the spectacular garden. This kept the children occupied for a while and even one of them for 4 hours (he was hooked!). A big thank you to Vittoria for being so patient with them all! There was plenty to do nearby - Assisi, Gubbio, Cortona, the Lake which really appealed to all ages. We also went to nearby restaurants and used the wood fired pizza oven twice which the children loved. It is also an idyllic spot with a view that I never tired off. We will all take away some amazing memories and I would recommend this property to anyone. Thank you

Lovely place to stay

4 of 5
This is a great place, spotlessly clean and reasonably well equipped. The owners are friendly and the views are stunning except for an ugly bard built in front of the property that ruins it a bit. It is lower down the hill though so you can see over it. There was only two of us so we had enough space though I would imagine it would be crowded with the maximum number of 7. There are only 2 comfortable chairs downstairs so we used the settee and chairs in the upstairs mezzanine as our living area in the evening. The owners run a small restaurant at the side of their house which serves simple, fantastic food. It's only open Monday to Friday so if you arrive on a Saturday I'd suggest stopping off in a town on the way there for supplies. The pool was clean and large and there are several living areas in the garden for you to follow the sun during the day.
