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

Cortona is a city of art, history and spirituality, located in Tuscany, Italy. Fifty miles from Florence, and flanked by hills and valleys on both sides, Cortona is the picturesque setting in the film ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’. Cortona has attracted tourists for nearly 400 years, and has changed little during that period. Many people go every year to stay in some of the beautiful apartments and holiday homes in the city, or farmhouses in the beautiful surrounding countryside.

A lot of visitors are attracted to Cortona’s medieval architecture, which is embodied by the characteristic steep, narrow streets. The main street – via Nazionale – is the only street in the city which has no gradient. Many locals call it Ruga Piana – or ‘Level Street’. The city walls should be your first port of call, and date back over 3,000 years.

Cortona is steeped in culture, and there are three institutions to visit whilst on holiday in the city. These are the Museo dell'Accademia Etrusca, the Civic and Academy Library and the Historic Civic Archive. The city also boasts many churches which date back hundreds of years.

The city does not possess a raucous nightlife, but there is still a good selection of bars to choose from when relaxing after a busy day of sightseeing.

A visit to Cortona is not complete without a trip into the countryside. If your holiday rental accommodation is based in the city centre, you can even hire a bike to explore the many hills and valleys just a short distance away. Some places of accommodation also offer cycling tours at a small cost.

We loved the house and gardens - everything was provided for. The beds were comfortable, the house was clean and the facilities were great. There is a huge fig tree in the fabulous gardens and we helped ourselves to many fresh ones every day. We used the house as a base to travel to Florence, Assisi, Perugia and many other places. We also spent a good few days down by the lake. There are great restaurants in the town - very reasonable - along with fabulous coffee shops (2 of them) where we enjoyed morning cappuccinos for 1 euro each - so good and so reasonable, we had 3 each morning! All in all, a great house, with a huge pool and in a central location to travel around. Thank you Susan for our Italian adventure!

The weather beginning of Oktober was great, so we could use the pool and enjoyed the small villages arround and the country side. The house was perfect. The owner has well renovated the place with lots of small little details. Everything you need for a great stay was there. Well equipt kitchen, even with two fridges and a new barbeque. The sleeping rooms with attached bathrooms were very clean and also well equipt. In the middle of our stay the house got cleaned and we all got new towles etc. You can see that the owner and Tecla (the woman who is in charge) are more then interested that everything is perfect. They even look atfer the fire wood so that you always have enough wood for a nice fire in the evening. Also they provide you with lots of books and information about the area you are staying. In the house and around you have lots of space to hang out. As it is a little bit off the track, around 7 min. on grevel road, you enjoy nature. Come and find out. We will come back.
