A haven of tranquility in the Tuscan hills

5 of 5
Seven of us had a marvelous fortnight centered on Casa Valentino and Cortona. The property is secluded and consequently very peaceful offering fantastic hill walks with spectacular views of the wooded mountains of South Tuscany. The wildlife was also a significant feature that we all appreciated; wild-boar, deer, hares, badgers, pine martens were among the frequent sightings. The property itself is well appointed for up to eight people with all the spacious bedrooms benefiting from en-suite shower facilities. Out-doors the pool is of a good size and the relatively extensive terraced gardens provide for entertainment (a proper croquet set is in the shed and provided hours of entertainment) and socialising (particularly at the large communal table under vine-covered pergola). A further highlight for us was the outdoor pizza and bread oven that got extensive use. The only potential niggle is the kitchen which is central to the house and will happily sit eight for supper at a splendid table but is a bit dark and not particularly well laid out, ergonomically, for large-scale food prep/cooking and the corner cupboard, in which the pans are stored, is susceptible to a bit of damp and can become musty. That said the owners provide a super guide to the eateries in the area which are, in Tuscan style, reasonably priced with simple, good-quality ingredients, freshly prepared. The handbook provided by the owners is comprehensive and helpful as is the 'goody pack' awaiting your arrival - very welcome if you're arriving late of an evening. So too is the service, Cath (the owner) before, during and after our stay was attentive, prompt and helpful (e.g. gas canister changed within the hour on a mid-week evening when the cooker conked out). Outings in any direction will, as soon as you get out of the hills, reveal numerous delights. Cortona is historically interesting as the long time home of St. Francis (Assissi is within an easy hours drive East and well worth a visit) as well as laying claim to be the 'Mother of Rome' Montepulciano and Sienna (home of the famous horse races) are easy drives to the North and Castille Del Lago (on the Western shore of Lake Tressimino) lies twenty miles or so to the South. All in all a lovely and very reasonably priced villa in some outstandingly beautiful and peaceful surroundings. If you want to 'get away from it all' but still have the latitude for interesting days out Casa Valentino and its owner come highly recommended.
