The villa was very nice, clean, and comfortable. The proximity to Cortona was a bit farther than expected. It's a good 15 minutes drive into town, I was under the impression that it was about a 15 minute walk into town. Other than that, it was a wonderful retreat. We enjoyed our stay immensely. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking.
Beautiful clean and well appointed house and grounds, with a stunning pool, clean although a little cool by the end of the season...great views. My only suggestion would be to provide visitors with an information folder....where to find the Cortona tourist Information centre (we still didn't find it),what's on this month, where to eat nearby and.....if you wish to have dinner and wine in Cortona at night, how to access return transport, e.g taxi....also consolidating the Oven, Washing Machine, TV etc instructions into a folder.
