Review for stay from 30 June 2018 to 14 July 2018

  • 5 of 5

Eine sehr schöne Villa, gut gelegen um viele schöne Städte zu besichtigen. Cortona ist von der Villa aus in 5min zu erreichen wo man köstlich essen gehen kann. Der Vermieter oder Verwalter Herr Enrico ist ein ausgesprochen freundlicher und hilfsbereiter Mensch. Nochmals vielen Dank für 14 Tage atemberaubenden Urlaub.

Great time was had by all!

  • 5 of 5

3 Couples from Florida stayed for 6 nights. The villa was more rustic than I expected but it was fun to live as Cortonians... Enrico, one of the owners and caretakers was great. He helped us out several times. The seating areas are not the roomyish but it worked. My husband and I slept in 2 different little rooms downstairs but since one of us snores it worked well. The view and location are fabulous. Easy to visit many other towns. You need a car, no doubt. Sitting outside in the evening was great. Only the 2 rooms upstairs are air conditioned. This time of the year, early May, the downstairs was cool. I think it is pushing it for 3 couples but we are all good friends and it worked! Thank you Enrico! We had a wonderful time!

Beautiful Stone House Overlooking the Val de Chiana and the Chiesa Santa Maria della Grazia

  • 5 of 5

We spent a winter week in this nicely renovated stone farm house on the hill side below Cortona. The house is in a unique and beautiful setting on a terrace overlooking the Val di Chiana. It has a good size well-equipped kitchen with a dining area and its own fireplace. There are two small living/dining areas adjacent to the kitchen. One living area with a second fireplace, nice to have in the winter. The large garden terrace includes a small spa/pool (shut down in the winter). The second floor has two good size bedrooms, with some nice antiques, and the second bathroom. The ground floor also has a very small bedroom and a full bathroom. The original restoration of the house was obviously carefully thought out and well constructed. The arrival is at the owners' family home at the bottom of the hill, and the arrival and check-in went very smoothly. Enrico was friendly, helpful and had any information you may need for your visit to the area. We had a couple of small issues with the house the first day, and Enrico responded immediately and easily remedied everything. Other than the house itself, the views over the Val di Chiana and immediately over the Chiesa Santa Maria della Grazie are spectacular. Wonderful to be outside and just enjoy the views and sunsets.

Wonderful! Beautiful villa, great communication with owner, a Tuscan dream

  • 5 of 5

I can't rave enough about this villa! It is exactly what we were looking for- set in the Tuscan hills with access to the charming town of Cortona (which, incidentally, has a 1 star Michelin restaurant, 2 Bib gourmands, and a few other Michelin guide restaurants...a surprising number of quality places for such a small town!). The villa is spacious, the man who met us was VERY helpful, it's quiet at night, the lawn is much bigger than it looks from the pictures and the bathrooms were surprisingly easy to use for European bathrooms!

One note- it is fairly difficult to walk into Cortona from the villa. It's do-able but, you have to cross or walk down fairly busy roads. That said, it's only a 3-4 minute drive into town. And, this villa is so great, I didn't even care that I couldn't walk to town!

The property owner could not have been more gracious. The house and view of the church and the Valdichiana was beautiful. This place is a jewel in Tuscany.

Cortona is one of the prettiest and most unspoilt gems in Tuscany. Beautifully located on a verdant hillside overlooking the Chiana Valley, Cortona is famous for its beautiful center with brick-built houses and excellent restaurants. Enjoy an evening walk through the alleys, or simply admire the glorious views from one of the many bars while drinking a glass of red wine: all the authentic charme of Tuscany can be found here. As in the age of Etruscans during the 8th Century b.C., when it was firstly founded, Cortona still boosts a perfect location to explore the most beautiful areas of Tuscany, Umbria and Latium. You can easily reach Siena, Florence, Arezzo Rome, Perugia, or the Trasimeno Lake for sunbathing and swimming. Our villa is located just 1km away from Cortona, allowing you to be close enough to the city yet to have quiet and privacy.
