Wonderful Week in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week in Cortona at the Villa of Silvia and Francesco. Their home is absolutely lovely. Very modern with all the comforts one could ask for. The view and especially sunset from their home is outstanding. Best of all is Silvia and Francesco. Silvia provided us with restaurants to enjoy, places to visit and set up tours at a winery and cheese farm. All of which we tried and loved. Francesco cooked dinner for 7 of us 1 night and it was spectacular. I would venture to say that it was the best meal of the 3 weeks we stayed in Italy. His Pici is to die for. Although it was late March and unseasonably cold, we had a wonderful week in Cortona and a major reason was Silvia, Francesco and their home.

No place better

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Fonte al Vento for 3 weeks this summer. The grounds were impeccable. The views unparalleled. The convenience of being a ten minute walk up to Cortona was so very convenient for our entire family. Silvia made our visit the trip of a lifetime. She was there to answer all of our questions and accommodate all of our travel requests...plus she's a sweet adorable gem! The villa had four beautiful large bedrooms - modern, clean, luxury. The men gathered around the pool table at night and the women sat on the lounge chairs outside watching the sunset. There is honestly no better place to stay in the Tuscany/Umbria area than Fonte al Vento...I promise you will not be disappointed! Heaven!

5-STAR... AMAZING LOCATION. THIS IS THE ONLY VILLA TO RENT IN CORTONA.. 5 MINUTE WALK to TOWN

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Fonte Al Vento with another couple. WE were beyond pleased.. This is a brand new villa, state of the art everything. This home is beautifully decorated with all the amenities you will need.. The bedrooms are comfortable, beautiful and the bathrooms are to die for.. There is a beautiful infinity pool, overlooking the Tuscan Hills and the valley below Cortona.. The best location ever.. You are 5 minute walk up hill to the beautiful walled city of Cortona where there are beautiful shops, and many great restaurants. The owner and hostess Silvia, is like long lost family. SHe is truly wonderful and so helpful.. This is the perfect location to drive to other beautiful towns. WE saw Arezzo and drove to see friends in Chianti at Castello di Cacchiano Winery.. I couldn't recommend this beautiful home enough.. We will stay there again..Thank you Silvia and hope to see you soon ....

Room Tip: All of the bedrooms are beautiful and 5-star...

Words cannot describe.....

  • 5 of 5

This is my first online review which should say a lot. I have rented a lot of properties in my life and this is the best one yet. The house is beautiful and modern. Every possible detail was thought of in the design, from the stunning bathrooms to the hidden sink and stove top and TV. But really it was the warmth of Francesco and Silvia that made it perfect! Well, them, the infinity pool and the views! They were responsive to any questions that we had but are not hanging around the property. We are foodies who lived in NYC for many years and Francesco's cooking was simply divine: the presentation, the taste, his personality and his lovely mom who helps him cook. We shared the house with another family. The house is a great amount of space and I never felt crowded. Another great part is that the house is walk-able to town. Renting this house will make all future rentals pale in comparison. If you are staying in Cortona this is the house for you and if you are not staying in Cortona change your plans!

Will never stay anywhere else in Cortona!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was the perfect place to travel the Tuscany area from! Everything about The Villa was exceptional...views, comfort, accommodations, and hosts (Silvia & Francesco). It fit 6 of us very comfortably, and would fit 8 for sure. Each spacious bedroom has its own fully accommodated, attached bathroom. It is peaceful and quiet! Silvia was extremely responsive with the booking and all the planning up to the day of arrival. When she says she's "at your disposal", she means it! When she says she wants to make sure you have a memorable vacation, she means it! While staying at the Villa, you must have Francesco prepare a wine tasting dinner for you. We had one the night we arrived. Every course was spectacular, the wines they chose to pair were spot on! It was a fabulous way to begin our stay in Cortona! We'll be back...sooner rather than later.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This villa is everything and more. There were no surprises. It is new and clean and the rooms are as pictured. If you are planning a daily itinerary, leave yourself plenty of time to just to sit by the pool and enjoy the view - and maybe some good wine and cheese. We had one catered meal at the villa and I believe it was the best meal we had in Italy! Silvia and Francesco were perfect hosts - available but not intrusive. We traveled with 2 daughters, a son-in-law and 2 teen granddaughters and it was a perfect fit. I'd go back again and again!!
