“Great base to explore the region”

My husband and I stayed for a week in July. We had just done a whirlwind trip through other parts of Europe so it was great to have somewhere to finally stop and breathe for a while.
As others have said, the apartment is exactly what you see. We found it very comfortable and suited us perfectly. It was clean, well-equipped and in a lovely location that allows for nice day trips out to Assisi and Siena. You will need some kind of transport to get around but we liked being out of Cortona/ Camucia- a bit quieter. It was easy enough to head into town for dinner and window shopping when you wanted!
Lorenzo was really friendly and helpful in getting us settled and giving us some tips about the local area. He provided a bunch of brochures and maps for the surrounding towns which were really useful. The bottle of wine and apricot pie when we arrived was a nice thought too and really appreciated!

“Great value, amazingly lovely, friendly owners”

I stayed at this place for three weeks in July, one of those weeks with a friend. Althought the place is only about 15 minutes from the train station by car, Lorenzo,the owner, left his beach holiday and drove a few hours to pick me up from the train station in Camucia and take me personally to the accom. This was the first of many acts of kindness from Lorenzo, and there's not really enough kind things I can say about him and his family, who made me feel so welcome during my stay. The place is exactly as you see in the pics, nice colors, lots of space (for two people) good kitchen, lovely bathroom, amazing views out the window of Cortona. Short distance from town, so probably best to rent a car or scooter, as I did, and enjoy the ride. Amazing value. Great find. Would definitely recommend to any two friends, or a couple.

“Perfect location”

My partner and I have just returned from a 12 day stay at the Apartment "Leonardo"in Cortona's country and we loved every minute of it. The apartment is exactly like the photographs, small, compact, very clean, ideal for a couple and is perfectly placed for Tuscany sightseeing. On arrival Lorenzo welcomed us with a a nice bottle of Chanti, an Italian cake and a lovely bowl of fruit . Lorenzo and his wife speak good English and are very friendly and very helpful about were to go and what to see. We took the train into Rome for a couple of days. By car the station is only 5/10 mns away and the train journey took approx 2.1/2 hours, costing approx 21 Euros return (per person). Would highly recommend this property as an ideal base for a great Tuscan holiday.

“Definitely a great deal and great location with a car”
Reviewed 24 April 2011 for a stay in March 2011

We stayed at the apartment for 3 weeks and we really enjoyed it. It's very close to Cortona with a car, and close to the highway so you can explore the entire region. The apartment itself is small, but much much better than staying in a hotel. It has been renovated recently, so everything is new and very clean and comfortable (they have screens on the windows which is not always the case in Europe). We cooked a lot which was really nice. It was perfect for what we needed and we were able to enjoy all of the little hilltop towns in the area as well as the wine areas such as Montepulciano and Montalcino. Lorenzo and his family are really great people and extremely helpful with anything you need or want to know about. Definitely the best deal in the area.
