About The Experience
A family or two couples can have it all at this comfortable cottage with private pool and wonderful views. It is only 4 km from the “Under the Tuscan Sun” town of Cortona, so there will be lots of day trip possibilities.
Location Description

The property is four kilometers away from Cortona, an ancient Etruscan hilltop town that is full of art, history, and culture. Tour frescoed churches from the 13th century; explore the original city walls, and then visit an art exhibit in the 16th century fortress. You are also sure to find restaurants featuring delicious Tuscan dishes and ancient tombs dating back to the second century BC. There are plenty of shops selling antiques, crafts, wines, and olive oils, as well as a bank, post office, and pharmacy. Excellent day trip destinations from the property are to Lake Trasimeno, where you can participate in water sports, Arezzo, Perugia, and Siena.

The villa is a recently reconstructed house situated on the top of the hill overlooking the valley. There is a private swimming pool (open from May until October), a gazebo with dining tables and chairs and a BBQ. The fenced garden gives on to wonderful valley views. A long, unpaved road leads to the property. The road is only wide enough for one car so care should be taken while driving.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Absolutely wonderful Tuscan experience.
Enjoyed Most:
Immaculate property located on a beautiful hillside in the middle of an olive grove.
Surrounding Area:
The beauty and proximity to other desirable Tuscan and Umbrian cities.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Cortona. Not walkable but easily reached by car.
Tips or Restaurants:
The owners are exceptional in anticipating guest needs. They provided wonderful recommendations for restaurants.
Directions:
We used a GPS. It was confusing but with communication with the owners we got there.
Check In Out:
The owners were so gracious and welcoming that both the check in and check out were good experiences.

Mike, May

Overall:
Our experience was fantastic. The owners could not have been nicer and more helpful. The property was well-maintained and the pictures on the website did not do the property justice. I would definitely stay there again.
Enjoyed Most:
The beautiful setting and how well-kept the property is. We loved the gorgeous view and the comfortable furnishings. Everything was fantastic.
Enjoyed Least:
It was tough to get up the hill to the property and back down again. After a few times it was easier.
Surrounding Area:
Cortona was a neat little hill town and it was easy to get to many of the other Tuscan hill towns.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Cortona. It would have been a tough walk bc of the hills.
Tips or Restaurants:
We ate at several of Rick Steves' recommended restaurants in Cortona and they were all very good.
Directions:
The property owners met us at the little market a mile or so away from the house and that helped. More signs would certainly be needed if you were doing it alone for the first time.

Thomas , September

Overall:
It was a dream. From the moment we entered the property and were greeted by the owners, and until the moment we hugged them to say good bye, it was enchanting.
Enjoyed Most:
The view is spectacular any time of the day or night.
Enjoyed Least:
The directions were easy to follow but the road at night leading up to the villa was trying until you became more familiar it.
Surrounding Area:
Loved it all. The quaint town of Cortona was just breathtaking. The vineyards and wine was spectacular. The views were like walking into a painting. LOVED IT ALL.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Cortona was not walking distance but a short 10-15 min car ride.
Tips or Restaurants:
You need GPS to get around the surrounding areas.
Directions:
The directions were great but we used GPS for the area around the villa. GPS did not pick up the address of the villa.
Check In Out:
It was easy.
