Customer Reviews

Overall:
Lovely property with beautiful views. The owner was very nice and helpful. We used his cook, Ada, one night and that was fabulous.
Enjoyed Most:
The views and peacefulness.
Enjoyed Least:
The access road was long and winding; challenging with a larger vehicle.
Surrounding Area:
Great location and everything was close. The train station was only 5 miles away. All of the areas we visited were beautiful.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Cortona is the nearest town, but not within walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
The villa was well-equipped. We brought things we didn't need. There is a mid-week towel change and weekly cleaning. There was a good supply of garbage bags and toilet paper. If you plan on cooking, purchase/bring your ingredients. We like the restaurant in the Lucca Hotel in Cortona and another restaurant in Pergo, which is down the hill. A bit pricey but excellent food and service.
Directions:
The directions were great but it should be noted that the access road is uphill, narrow and winding. We had to trade in our first rental car (too big), and this took time away from the trip.
Check In Out:
The owner was very helpful and accommodating with luggage.
