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.

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 accommodation was wonderful - all rooms as we had expected. We loved the setting - couldn't have been better - and the large outdoor table under the canopy was where we spent much of our time. The pool was spectacular for us - and, given that our group included small children under 6, the fenced pool was perfect. Most of all, the family who owned the villa was wonderful. They prepared many memorable meals for us and accommodated us in so many ways. The staff of Villa & Charme has been really kind with us during all the booking process and Sabrina promptly answered to all our questions. We would highly recommend this villa to anyone interested

The villa could easily fit our group of 8 friends (4 couples). We had great fun relaxing and hanging out by the pool to finish the day after our busy tuscan cultural trips. Our host was very uncomplicated and friendly. The beautiful medieval town of Cortona is only a 5 minute drive away and offers amazing sunsets and great food.
