Customer Reviews

Overall:
Three couples shared Villa Ilia - it was a perfect place to stay. The owner was an excellent host. He was waiting for us when we arrived at the meeting point and took us to the villa. The villa had 4 bedrooms and was very comfortable. The kitchen and dining room were well supplied with dishes and utensils.
Enjoyed Most:
The view was stunning. After dark the sky was full of stars. And the air conditioning worked!!
Enjoyed Least:
We liked everything about Villa Ilia.
Surrounding Area:
We took day trips from the villa and it was easy to get to the major roads. Them town of Cortona was so pretty.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Cortona was the nearest town. There was a well-maintained walking path into town but we did not want to walk. Parking was easy in Cortona.
Tips or Restaurants:
You might want to bring mosquito repellant. Also, as in most of Europe, you will need to bring your own wash cloths.
Directions:
The directions to the property were clear and easy to follow. We brought a Garmin and had purchased the program for Italy. This helped a great deal.
Check In Out:
The check in and check process were very smooth.

Lynn, September

Overall:
The overall experience at Vill Ilia was great.
Enjoyed Most:
Aside from the amazing view and comfortable property, having the owner nearby was great. He was always helpful and even dropped off 2 bottles of his wine for us to enjoy. Whenever we had a question, he was more that accommodating and willing to help.
Enjoyed Least:
The mosquitoes were a problem. The property was described as having screens but some windows did not have them.
Surrounding Area:
We were not far from Cortona, which was fantastic. It was one of my favorite towns.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Cortona was the nearest town but not within walking distance. You had to drive there.
Tips or Restaurants:
La Grotta was my favorite restaurant in Cortona.
Directions:
I did rent a car but ended up turning it in the second day. We had a driver for the rest of the trip.
