Overview

About the property

Apartment Stella is situated in the historic centre of Cortona in Tuscany, a charming hilltop walled town with Etruscan origins. The apartment is located in a historic building in a little side street called Vicolo della Notte, just off the main shopping street, Via Nazionale. The area is closed to traffic for most of the day and the apartment is quiet and yet all the restaurants, elegant boutiques, shops and cafes are within walking distance. The owner's family antiques business is just across the road. The apartment Iooks out over the street and the typical 15th century buildings of Cortona.

Parking is available from about 80 metres away. Free Wifi Internet access. It can sleep 5 people.

The apartment has air-conditioning included in the price.

The apartment is located on the first floor (no elevator) and is both comfortable and well-furnished with Italian antiques. It has a large sitting room with satellite television and original stone fireplace, comfortable seating area with armchairs and a sofa bed (120 cm wide) and a dining area.

There is a fully-equipped open-plan kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine. There are 2 double bedrooms (one with double bed and one with 2 single beds which can be pushed together to make a double). There is a laundry room on the ground floor with washing-machine, iron and board etc.

The 2 bathrooms are spacious and one has a bath-tub as well as separate shower.

It is well-located for visiting other towns in Tuscany and Umbria such as Florence, Arezzo, Siena, Assisi and Perugia. Other ancient hilltop towns such as Montepulciano, Montalcini, Pienza, Rapolano and Bagno Vignoni are easily accessible.

The railway station at Camucia is less than 3 kms away.

Fast motorways connect you easily with Florence, Rome and Naples.

Perfect location and very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was very comfortable and in a perfect location for our month-long stay. We stayed in Cortona so that we could easily take day trips throughout Tuscany and Umbria. The owner is very responsive and helpful and we enjoyed our stay very much. The kitchen is well equipped for preparing meals and the bathrooms are modern and well-kept. The managing agent, Chantal is also very responsive and cooperative. An overall positive experience. We highly recommend this apartment.

Very nice. Extremely convenient.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was as pictured. Very centrally located — so easy to walk every where. The internet was extremely slow. There is free parking not far from the apartment.

Great apartment with awesome access in Cortona

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is located just off Via Nazionale and unlike many properties in town there are very few hills and endless stairs to get to the apartment. Both bathrooms are modern and sizable and everything is well appointed. We’ve visited Cortona almost 10 times and this place is definitely on our our list to stay on our next return.

Awesome. Hot water, location, ambiance.

  • 5 of 5

A really nice apartment, well-located, and well-supplied. The owner, Antonella Marri, is a great host. I could not have chosen a better place. This was a return visit for me: I was here 32 years ago studying art with the University of Georgia Studies Abroad program in Cortona. The experience of returning was made all the more worthwhile by renting this apartment.

Absolutely magical!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment in Cortona, just off the main pedestrian walkway to the town square. Loved being right "in town" and feeling like a "local" in the neighborhood. Chantal has been so prompt in response and accurate in every detail. Antonella personally welcomed us and walked us to the apartment even though our arrival was delayed by 5 hours. Loved every minute of our two week stay. Absolutely magical and full of special moments!
