About the property

Sleeps up to 6 guests, perfect location, welcoming interiors, extensive gardens

Few properties in Tuscany can offer such a fantastic location, a large private pool and an attractive price as Villa Cortine! Perfectly set in the countryside of Chianti, the most sought after area of Tuscany, Villa Cortine can accommodate 6 guests in welcoming and traditional interiors, with all the most famous cities and hamlets of Tuscany literally at your doorstep. The villa has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, an incredibly large private pool and is surrounded by fields as well as unspoilt woods: all the ingredients for an unforgettable holiday in Tuscany. The friendly owners are always on hand (they live in a nearby villa) should the guests require anything during their stay. On the back part of the villa there is an apartment, occasionally occupied by the owners, that does’t have access to the pool or the grounds that remain for the exclusive use of the guests staying in Villa Cortine.

Inside the villa is set over 2 floors: it has been furnished with care and attention to the details using antique pieces and finished making wide use of local traditional stone.

On the upper floor there are 3 bedrooms plus 2 further bathrooms: the re is a double bedroom with sn-suite shower room as well as a double bedroom and a bedroom with bunk-beds sharing a family bathroom with bathtub.

The pool area provides beautiful views over the rolling hills and is equipped with sunbeds, parasols and gazebo.

Beautiful location in the heart of the Chianti. Spacious house and well maintained surroundings. Owners are really nice and warm-hearted. We felt like being home. The pool and all facilities around are great.

Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Woche in der Villa Cortine. Alles war sehr sauber und gepflegt. Das Schwimmbad und der Blick sind wunderbar. Die Besitzer waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Danke Posarellivillas für die gute Betreuung und Vermittlung/Komunikation mit den Besitzern schon vor Reiseantritt. Alles hat sehr gut geklappt.

A beautifully kept traditional Italian villa with all the comforts of home. Great views for the back of the house. The pool area is exceptional and a must in the hot summer months. Good amenities a short drive away. Highly recommended to get away from it all.

We very much enjoyed the villa, which is very nice, has a wonderful pool area, and is in the heart of the beautiful Chianti region; the owners were also very friendly.

However we feel that the property description is very misleading; the inaccuracies in the description were to such an extent that we would not have chosen this villa had we known the true extent to which the owners and their family use the grounds and facilities of the villa. We feel that these inaccuracies may also impact other customers when they are choosing their holiday. We have listed the key points of note below:

1) The description says:

"The friendly owners are always on hand (they live in a nearby villa) should the guests require anything during their stay"

- in fact the owners live approximately 150 meters from the property in a couple of wooden buildings. The owners go past the property many times each day and sit outside their building and can be heard from the villa. This may be useful to know if you want a truly secluded villa, as it does not feel as secluded as we had been led to believe.

2) The description says:

“(the owners don’t have access to the pool, that remains for the sole use of our customers).”

“private swimming pool”

- in fact on the day we arrived 4 of the family were in the pool; we mentioned this to the owner (Francesca) and having had a call with Elena from PosarelliVillas Francesca advised that this was an agent mistake, but agreed that the contract was explicit and the owners would therefore not use the pool when we were doing so.

However each day at approx 17.00 – 18.00 the owners’ family (3 boys and 2 adults) that were staying in the attached apartment used the pool whilst we were either in the pool or sitting in the pool area. We raised this again with Francesca and were told that this is “not a problem for the children to use it”. We disagreed but due to the language barrier this was difficult, and the situation continued; in fact they also started using it once per day in the morning also (if only for 30 mins or so).

On the second Wednesday of our stay Francesca gave us a piece of paper saying that they were having a ‘Working pool party’ that day from 14.00 – 24.00 and invited us to this and a buffet. The note said that she would waive the EUR100 cleaning cost; although we did not want this to take place, and it is clearly not in keeping with the contract/ description of the villa, we did not complain as this was ...
