Customer Reviews

Overall:
We had a lovely time in the apartment and in Cortona. The property was comfortable, clean, and furnished nicely. The streets are steep in Cortona, so it's a bit of a workout with all the walking around--but worth it. We also visited the Cinque Terre, which was beautiful.
Enjoyed Most:
The view from the front windows.
Surrounding Area:
The beautiful landscapes, rooftops, colors.
Nearby Events or Locales:
A car is needed to visit other towns in the area. The famous "Bramasole" house owned by Frances Mayes is within walking distance through a beautiful park.
Tips or Restaurants:
Cortona has several good restaurants which was surprising for a small town. Trattoria la Grotta and Ristorante La Loggetta were very good meals. I would advise future travelers to pack light. You don't want to lug heavy suitcases around those streets.
Directions:
Directions were fine. We had a GPS.

Overall:
We had a wonderful time. The property is so close to restaurants, museums, shops and within walking distance of historical sites. We were greeted by the owner and she was very helpful and answered all our questions.
Enjoyed Most:
The view and the easy access to shops and restaurants.
Enjoyed Least:
The apartment would be perfect for a family of 4. However, for two couples, there was one master bedroom (beautiful) and a second bedroom with two single beds. We would have liked to have had an outdoor table and chairs.
Surrounding Area:
We did a winery and cheese tour which was reasonably priced and interesting. We did a trip into Rome. We enjoyed hiking to a monastary. We were close to restaurants and shopping.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Cortona was within walking distance and had a market to pick up whatever food items we needed.
Directions:
It worked out well for us as we were late arriving (after 7:00 PM); too late for the bus. We called the owner and she called a taxi to pick us up at the train station. It only cost 15 Euros.
Check In Out:
The owner was very pleasanat and made checking in very easy for us. It was after hours and we really appreciated all her help in arranging a taxi pick up. She was very professional and made sure to come by when the time suited us.
