We very much enjoyed our stay - the huge, well-maintained pool was the highlight, with plenty of space, chairs, sun loungers and umbrellas for everyone, and we also made good use of the table tennis table. Although the overall property is able to accommodate a surprisingly high number of people, it didn't feel over-crowded. Emmanuela and Fabrizio were relaxed and friendly hosts, on hand to help but not intrusive, and they gave us a bottle of their own-made wine as a welcome present.
For five stars it would be nice to have an outdoor eating space for exclusive use for each villa, rather than a shared verandah, and also better lighting and equipment in the kitchen (eg. there was just a small countertop combi oven, rather than a full oven, and one shared washing machine for the whole property).
If you are looking for somewhere to instantly feel like home where you can relax and let your kids play and explore then you have found the right place.
Margaret and Maurizio who own this stunning property have created the perfect atmosphere to unwind and enjoy a slower pace of life. We couldn't have asked for better hosts during our week at thier place close to Cortona. Booking the best tables at restaurants, sugesstions for great day trips or even tips for experiencing the most amazing sunset was no problem for Margret and Maurizio who really made us feel at home during our stay.
The apartment was extremely clean and had everything we needed to recreate some fantastic Tuscan food. Sitting in the beautiful garden to eat, relax with a book and a glass of wine or even just watching the hundreds of butterflies was an absolute joy. Especially as our two kids (5 and 8 years) could safely run around, play football and badminton, bounce on the trampoline and say hello to their new best friend Punch the dog, without us needing to worry about them playing around the lovely pool area, as it is discretely fenced off from the rest of the property. When it was time for a dip we could all go to the pool together and swim or lie on the sunloungers drinking in the surrounding scenery of valleys and hills.
Being so close to the lively and picturesque town of Cortona was the icing on the cake. If you want a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable Tuscan holiday we cannot recommend Margaret and Maurizio's place enough.
