Very nice setting, very friendly tenants, , very quiet, nice pool. Some 15km off Cortona, all you do, you do by car. I expected to be closer to Cortona.
But we do recommand Villa Margherita.
Villa Margherita is fantastic! Highly recommended.
We just spent a fantastic three weeks here, It is so beautiful and tranquil. Unsurpassed sunsets. Lovely owner and family were so helpful with anything we needed. We will always treasure our days at this gem! Thank you, Michaela & Tom
If you want to be away from all, relax totally, this is the place to be! There will be no other tourists bothering your peace! The house is nice, cosy. The pool very clean, with an spectacular view over the hills of Tuscany. To get there you need to drive also on a unpaved road. We arrived in our SUV, which was perfect for this place. We loved it.
We booked Villa Margherita for a relaxing week following four days in Rome. And it was a superb week! The location is magnificent and we spent each evening discussing whether the amazing views at sunset from the pool area was better than the night before or whether it surpassed anything we'd ever experienced. The jury is still out but it takes some beating! The low humidity in the mountains meant that heat was not a problem and concerns over the lack of aircon unfounded. In fact the first few day were a bit cool and we used our minimal wardrobe in a layered fashion!!
There were just two of us (no kids this time - hurrah!) but if you had young children, you would need to give consideration to the pool area and the pool itself. Fantastic for swimmers and jumpers but with no real shallow area. And the views might be wasted on 3year olds!
A helpful, non-intrusive owner (little English but French worked a treat!)
A fabulous, cool, relaxing, inspirational week. Highly recommended.
Villa Margherita or Casa Serena, named to the owners daughter, is situated in Bagnole, up in the mountains near Cortona. It can be reached by driving an unpaved road ending up at a small community in an 'agritursimo' setting. The house is surrounded by trees, providing pleasant shadows during hot summer times. Villa Margherita is decorated nicely with all necessary amenities. The view from the house to the area is sensational, panoramic. The pool is large and nice and for exclusive use, it is situated about 30 meter away from the house, and does provide almost, but not full privacy. The pool is kept clean by the housekeeper on a regular basis. The owners of the house are very, very friendly and helpful. The nearest restaurant or supermarket can only be found 20 minutes drive away. We really loved our stay at Casa Margherita. Thank you Serena!
