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.

Things to do in Cortona, Italy

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.

Being a historic Italian city, Cortona offers visitors a great range of trattorias and pizzerias, as well as traditional Tuscan restaurants which serve fantastic food and fine wines. 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.

                                                                                            Myself, husband and three sons aged 20, 18 and 13 enjoyed a relaxing week at Villa Forconi. The villa is chic, modern and quite luxurious and the listing describes the villa and facilities well. All mod cons are available from the three bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, tv room, large family size kitchen diner, decent size swimming pool, outdoor dining with barbeque and the essential wi-fi. The additional living room come lounge was lovely for us to relax in during the evening playing board games and listening to music; there were plenty of games to use and a large selection of books at the villa too. The villa is a little remote but we enjoyed the tranquility and solitude. Finding the villa would not be particularly easy without the excellent directions provided. However, Tuoro is just a twenty minute drive where we found a decent supermarket. When we first arrived we were met by Mirella who helped us settle in to the property; our arrival was delayed, due to a lengthy 2.5 hour wait at Rome airport to collect our car, but Mirella went out of her way to welcome us on our late arrival. We ate out at local Tuoro restaurants ll Vecchio Mulino where we felt the food was great value and at I Capricci di Merion where the food was excellent. We also had scrumptious pastries and coffees at Lo Scoiattolo, just ten minutes drive away. A throughly good holiday was had and the villa is somewhere we could happily recommend to family and friends. Jayne Dickens

The views from the terrace and adjoining bedroom were stunning, a wonderful way to wake up. The second bedroom felt spacious even with four single beds, and the children loved the football pitch, playground, and pool. The grounds are wonderful for children. Marilena worked with us on board arrangements and was very accommodating of our various tastes, and her husband Giuseppe made us feel completely at home. We hope to return in the near future!

It's a charming, well-equipped and welcoming house, with a fabulous garden and pool. It's within easy striking distance of Sienna, Perugia and other places, which we've done in the past. This time, we did nothing but relax, swim and read.
