There were four of us and the amount of room we had was perfect. The villa was so clean and we loved sitting on the terrace for meals, taking in the gorgeous views. The villa sits in a very quiet area, yet we were so close to everything we wanted to do. We loved Cortona and would recommend this villa to all.
