Perched on a hilltop in Cortona is this charmingly beautiful and rustic villa where my sisters, partner, brother-In-law and good friend spent a delightful and rejuvenating sojourn in Tuscany. Our hosts, Stefania and Luigi, were extraordinarily gracious and welcoming , greeting us with home made olive oil, a delicious fruit pie and tempting Italian pastries. The villa showcases the craftsmanship of stone and woodworking throughout and the strategically placed windows highlighted the spectacular landscapes from every window in the villa. Our daily wake up call were the rhythmic church bells, roosters and braying of the donkey and symphony Of songs from all the birds. We were able to prepare a few meals in the well equipped kitchen, and the grounds were spacious and lush with olive trees abd flowers and several seating areas where we could enjoy the morning sun and evening dusk in a different Setting. Ti ringraziamo per una settimana meravigliosa nella tua affascinante villa e per essere visu gentile e générosité da associate che ci godremo ogni momento del bistro tempo qui. . Gratefully, Rosemarie, Emanuela, Joe, Joanne abd John
for me it was an honor to meet you.
thanks for the beautiful words and I hope one day to meet you again.
Well worth it!
We all much enjoyed the experience.
All well catered for by Luigi and Stefania, including an occasional tasty Italian treat.
All functioned well - equipment, pool, showers, airco etc. So a great venue with an unbeatable view of Cortona!
Suggestion might be to do up some of interior that is a bit old fashioned?
No complaint though...!
Family holiday with my three children, brother and partner and my elderly mother.
On arrival we initially had problems finding the villa but Luigi kindly came to meet us and we followed him back to the villa. Our hosts Luigi and Stefania spoke very good English and gave a very comprehensive guide of the villa and all the amenities.
The villa has a well equipped kitchen, large spacious bedrooms and three large bathrooms equipped with hair driers and a large supply of towels. Air conditioning made it very comfortable to sleep at night. Outside there are three separate seating areas, one of which has a barbecue with plenty of loungers around the pool.
The villa was well located near to the beautiful hilltop town of Cortona where there are a vast array of shops and restaurants. Camucia is just 10 minutes away where there is a co op and a railway station and en route to Camucia we found a superb fish restaurant. You can take the train to Florence for the day and Siena is only an hour away by car and for my elderly mother We found that Pienza was much flatter than the usual hilltop villages.
Our stay was in July and the pool was a perfect way to cool down, enjoyed by all. For those that didn't want to swim there was plenty of shaded seating areas around the villa.
I couldn't fault Stefania and Luigi, they were perfect hosts. On two mornings Stefania left fresh pastries for us to eat along with a bottle of olive oil made from the olive trees within the grounds and Luigi also kindly printed out our boarding passes for the return home.
Thankyou Stefania and Luigi for making this such a memorable stay and I would certainly come back.
Thanks you so much😊
It is a very nice villa and the location is great. Very peaceful.
It is a great place. We we a small group of 9 friends and family members. Lots of room. The views were great. We did a bit of walking around the area. I would recommend this villa to anyone who wants to relax and enjoy the Tuscan countryside. The town of Cortona is very nice. It has many nice shops and good restaurants. This location was our hub for day teipa to San Gimignano, Florence, Siena, etc. You won't be disappointed.
Incredible Villa with a great location
The villa was gorgeous, clean, organized and well furnished. The pool was incredible with amazing views and the kids loved spending the afternoons by the pool. The hosts were very nice and available for questions. The location was central enough where we were able to make day trips to Siena, Arrezo, Florence, and many trips to Cortona. We went in the middle of August and the villa was cool enough inside we only had to occasionally use the air conditioning. I really don't have anything negative to say. It was just a fabulous 2 week vacation for the family.
Beautiful restored villa
We had a wonderful time at the villa. You cannot beat the location. It is 5 minutes by car to the town of Cortona, which ended up feeling like a home away from home. Stefania and Luigi were very welcoming. They went out of their way to show us how things worked, even when we bothered them a few times! Stefania greeted us 2 mornings with delicious pastries and was kind enough to provide some gluten free products for my sister and I. She also drove our luggage to the train station when it was time to leave, which was a huge help. Thank you Stefania and Luigi.
I cannot say enough about Cortona, the friendly people and the fantastic food. We were lucky enough to be there during the town's festival week too. The villa is also centrally located to so many other quaint towns. Close to Florence and Rome by train. We drove to some towns and booked tours with Francisco from Toursintuscany.com who was wonderful.
We miss Cortona and hope to return some day.
Thanks you for nice words it was a pleasure to meet you!
