About The Experience
Experience traditional Tuscan living from this 18th century villa outside of Cortona. The large, private outdoor space has several vantage points for you to admire panoramic views of the countryside. Cool off in the pool, eat every meal alfresco beneath the covered dining area, and take the time to wander the scenic, peaceful grounds. You’re only a short walk from Cortona, with its wonderful shops and restaurants.
Location Description
The property is 1.5 kilometers away from Cortona, an ancient Etruscan hilltop town that is full of art, history, and culture. Visit ancient Etruscan tombs dating back to the second century BC. Tour frescoed churches from the 13th century, explore the original city walls, and then take in an art exhibit in the 16th century fortress. You won’t have any trouble finding restaurants featuring delicious Tuscan dishes and there are plenty of shops selling antiques, crafts, wines, and olive oils, as well as a bank, post office, and pharmacy.

Nearby Attractions: Arezzo is perfect for a day trip. Once one of the most important Etruscan cities, today Arezzo is beautiful for an array of architecture spanning centuries, from Etruscan ruins to the Roman amphitheater and the Medici Fortress. The first weekend of each month brings a popular antique fair, while annually there is a festival called "Joust of the Saracens," where all of the citizens dress in medieval attire and knights representing each part of the city charge at a target representing a Saracen king. Other excellent day trip destinations from the property are to Lake Trasimeno, where you can participate in water sports, Arezzo, Perugia, and Siena.

Customer Reviews

This villa was a wonderful setting for spending a week in Tuscany. It was comfortable for 4 of us. There was another bedroom, which would have worked well for children, but 2 more adults would have been tight for bathroom and living room use.
Enjoyed Most:
The setting was peaceful with a terrific view. The house was comfortable, clean and well kept. We really enjoyed the outdoor pizza oven and wood/charcoal grill. The outdoor seating was excellent.
Enjoyed Least:
The living room was OK for 4 of us, but would not provide seating for any more than that. We were charged for gas use, which was about 50 Euros. This was unexpectedly high, as we had only used heat one evening. The upstairs bathroom did not have a shower.
Surrounding Area:
It was an easy day trip to several hill towns and wine tasting venues. It was also a reasonable drive from Florence airport.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Cortona was the nearest town. It was a strenuous uphill walk, and only walking distance if you are relatively fit. Walking back after dark is difficult. A taxi from town to the villa was about 15 Euros.
Tips or Restaurants:
The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and supermarkets were available in Camucia. I would suggest stopping for basics before going to the villa, if possible. If you intend to use the pizza oven, request wood from the owner at check-in
The owner met us in Camucia and we followed him to the villa, which worked well.
Check In Out:
The owner was delightful to deal with. The instructions said he would meet us in Cortona, but when we called, he suggested we meet in Camucia since this was easier than driving into Cortona. He met us and the check in was easy.

Wonderful stay in a beautiful area with plenty of great areas to explore.
Enjoyed Most:
The serenity and the view.
Enjoyed Least:
Kitchen very small if there are more then 2 people.
Surrounding Area:
Cortona is lovely, and there are so many neat and interesting towns and vineyards to visit and explore with a small car.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Cortona. Longish walk mostly up hill not for anyone with some disability.
Tips or Restaurants:
Easy to get nice things at market to make at Villa. Very nice places to eat in Cortona. Had no ice trays so we got baking cups and made ice daily.
If you drive, get a small car like our Fiat Panda. It is a manual shift. Get a good GPS if you are exploring. Narrow roads with some gravel and dirt to get up to villa.
Check In Out:
All good. The manager was amazing. Even gave us wine he and his father makes. It was very good!

Lovely place on the mountainside. The view was amazing and the villa was very comfortable. It was a perfect location for all our side trips to hill towns. We traveled to Florence twice on the train. The Conad grocery was well stocked and even carried many GF foods.
Enjoyed Most:
It was secluded. It was rebuilt from the stones left there from years ago. The inside had modern bathrooms and kitchen. The king beds were comfortable. Beautiful views of the valley. We were surrounded by olive trees.The large rosemary plant in front of the villa was a bonus.
Enjoyed Least:
The living room was tiny even for the four of us. Need more seating. The upstairs bath only had a hand shower in the tub.
Surrounding Area:
The roosters in the morning, the view of the Under the Tuscan Sun movie house and the beautiful palace above us. (which is now an art school. ) We were within an hour of several hill towns. The train was close by in Camucia. People are friendly and the food and wines are fabulous
Nearby Events or Locales:
We were in Cortona. It was a 30 minute walk uphill. We walked into town twice. Many restaurants, churches and shops.
Tips or Restaurants:
The restaurants in Cortona were all good. You need reservations on the weekend. We usually had lunch in another hill town and either had dinner in Cortona or prepared dinner in the villa. The first couple of days when it was warmer we ate outside. There is a washing machine so you don't need to bring as many clothes. Wear comfortable walking shoes for the hills and steps everywhere.
Someone met us in Camucia and lead us to the villa. This villa is off the beaten path down a walled road in the countryside. Our GPS helped us after that. I would advise getting a GPS for Italy before you go or rent a car with one.
Check In Out:
It was easy. Sauro was the owner. He knew we were seasoned travelers and left us alone.
