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 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.

                                                                                                  On arrival at Casale Lamate for a 3 week stay, we (there were 4 of us) were stunned by the view from the Loggia - sweeping fields in a variety of colors. The loggia faces west and we witnessed several remarkable sunsets over the weeks we were there. The house itself was a nicely restored stone cottage. It had 4 bedrooms, the largest of which was on the lowest level and thus a little musty smelling. As it was unseasonably warm in early September, the air conditioning was especially welcome. The kitchen was well equipped with a six burner stove. We initially had a difficult time figuring out how to use the dishwasher, but Tecla Vadi, the manager, provided us with all the assistance we needed. She was always available for questions and gave us excellent recommendations for restaurants in Cortona and Camucia. The property was beautifully landscaped and meticulously maintained. Early every morning a groundskeeper arrived to prune the bushes and flowers and clean the pool (which was a godsend given the warm weather). The house was located in a convenient area and made travel to Cortona, the terrific hill town and towns like Arezzo, Siena, Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Gubbio, Castiglione del Lago/Lake Trasimeno and Perugia easy. We also traveled to the magnificent La Foce gardens in Chianciamo Terme and the Isola Maggiore in Lake Trasimeno. We also visited the nearby Fattoria Avignonesi for wine tasting. The Camucia/Cortona train station is a few miles up the road, so we left the car at the villa and took the train to Florence for an overnight visit. A GPS is an absolute necessity. Anyone driving to Casale Lamate should put the coordinates for the house in the GPS, as the house is not that easy to find. The house had cable TV and WiFi. We needed a little help getting everything to work, but the owner was very responsive to our needs. In sum, we had a glorious time and would return there in a heartbeat.

The house went beyond our expectations with every comfort taken care of. From the well equipped kitchen, lovely dining room, comfortable sitting room. Spacious en suite bedrooms. All this with AC. You can tell it has been lovingly put together by the owners. We will return!
