Cheryl Tvl Agent, September

Overall:
The apartment was great and we really enjoyed living there for a week. The property manager was absolutely great, doing everything she could to make the experience terrific, both taking care of any small issues that came up and also suggesting various local events, places to shop, etc.
Enjoyed Most:
It was a well-protected, gated property. The bedrooms and bathrooms were good. We only used the kitchen for breakfast and the occasional snack but it was well arranged and well stocked with utensils, dishes, tableware and even spices and other such items.
Enjoyed Least:
We had a couple of plumbing issues: the shower would stop completely for a minute or two, then restart. The property manager called in a plumber immediately to try to fix the problem. There is some road noise, especially in the early morning as folks were driving to work so sleeping late was not usually an option. Locals also drive very fast on the road making it relatively unsafe to use it for walking. These are not large issues compared to the fundamental comfort and usefulness of the property.
Surrounding Area:
We love Tuscany and especially Cortona - about 2 miles, or 15 minute drive away. We also liked the accessibility to other parts of Tuscany. It was a nice country place.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The nearest real town is Camucia, which has markets, Tabbachi shops, etc and is a railroad stop. In terms of distance it is certainly walkable but the road made it seem a bit unsafe to walk, although we did see locals walking and biking on it. For shopping, if you did walk, it would be wise to have some sort of cart to bring groceries back since it was probably at least a kilometer away.
Tips or Restaurants:
You don't need much other than your normal suitcase stuff. They provide a starter set of small soaps and toilet paper but you do need to shop for more.
Check In Out:
The property manager made this very simple and was very accommodating. Basically she is a charming and extremely helpful individual.

Cedric, October

Overall:
Excellent. Federica greeted us warmly and was helpful and informative.
Enjoyed Most:
Lovely grounds, very nice pool, proximity to Cortona and Camucia very nice Co-Op for purchasing food. Excellent take-off point for day trips to various places in Tuscany and Umbria.
Enjoyed Least:
Our apartment was on the Italian first floor (American second floor) was right on the road, so there were auto noises on and off through the night. If there were a suitable unit 2 BR, 2 BA further away from the road, we would have preferred it. This was not a major problem, but less than ideal. There could have been better lighting in the living room-kitchen area.
Surrounding Area:
Ability to take easy day trips to many places.
Tips or Restaurants:
Our unit was well stocked with cooking utensils, linens, towels, etc. Very nice and inexpensive restaurant just outside Camucia - Bastian Contrario. We ate there twice. One of our favorite restaurants in the world is in Passignano sul Trasimeno, about a 25 minutre drive from the agriturismo. Its name is La Locanda del Castello and is located behind the ceramic shop just off the main road through town. The owner-chef is Giuliano. Phone 075 82 96 425
Directions:
We used a GPS for our day trips. This property did not appear on our GPS, so a nearby property was our GPS home.

James, September

Overall:
Our experience was wonderful. The location was perfect for all that we wanted to do.
Enjoyed Most:
I have never rented a property with so many amenities. The kitchen was fully stocked, and the outside area had everything. We were not expecting such nice chairs, umbrellas, and outside tables. The grounds were lovely, and the flowers were beautiful. Federica was so helpful, and I have never been in a place that was so well maintained.
Enjoyed Least:
We loved everything about the property, except for the busy road that it was on. It made it difficult to walk to the village due to the traffic. When we were inside the property the road was not a problem, and the thick walls and shutters of the property kept the rooms quiet at night.
Surrounding Area:
It was perfect for all of the day trips that we wanted to take. We also loved the proximity to Cortona, we went in for gelato or dinner every night!!!
Nearby Events or Locales:
The nearest small town was in Menicchio, and yes you could walk or bike, but we didn't due to the busy road.
Tips or Restaurants:
You don't need to bring a thing, everything is included. We had to buy food, and paper napkins and toilet paper, but we even had that left over. We highly recommend La Grotta in Cortona. It was so reasonably priced as well as delicious. You did need reservations, but we were able to make them that day.
Check In Out:
Federica was so welcoming and wonderful to deal with, I don't think that it could get any better.
