Such an idyllic place to stay, the property is situated in the perfect location. Ideal for a relaxing break.
The villa is in a glorious location with wonderful views all around. We have been here several times in different seasons and never been disappointed. The gardens are so peaceful, perfect for relaxing and enjoying the pool. The house has everything you need for a lovely holiday, with plenty of guides and suggestions for both local and distant exploring. There is a good local supermarket , and the beautiful nearby hill town of Cortona has plenty of bars, restaurants and shopping. The cultural centres of Orvieto, Assisi and Montepulciano are a reasonable day trip by car. The owners who are based in the UK are extremely helpful, and the family who live across the lane and look after the house speak good English. Mobile reception is poor in the house itself but most of the bars offer free wifi. It is a wonderful place to relax and recharge.
With my wife we have stayed on numerous occasions over the last few years an have another visit planned for Sept 2017. The villa is comfortable, spacious and well planned. The gardens are gorgeous and we love the pool!
The setting is very peaceful but well placed for visits to the cities of Tuscany and to Assisi. The local hill town of Cortona is also a great favourite of ours - good restaurants, fantastic views, and fun for evening passegiata!
We have stayed here three times, once with our two boys then with them as teenagers and latterly young adults. Each has been splendid.
We love the tranquility, the isolation and beauty of the location. While the locality has many pleasures we find ourslves spending most of the time in the garden, reading, swimming and enjoying.
There's a simplicity about life in the cottage. It is a place to relax. There will be no rush, no frenetic activity and most importantly no interruptions.
The owners can not be faulted for their support and help. They are kind, professional and attentive to your needs.
This is always our first choice destination in Italy ... too often booked by someone else!
Love the house and everything about it, whether with others or just us two. So much to explore and do or just chill round the pool. Love the local shops for buying food or enjoying a coffee.
Cortona and old Perugia are hidden gems. The market at Camuccia has everything. Further afield Asissi; Florence; Pisa and Sienna are all within easy reach. Walking in the local mountains is stunning. The nearby lake affords both busyness and quiet spaces.
In short this has everything for a base to see this part of Italy. A real home from home.
