Peter and Nina were absolutely fantastic hosts! Very generous with recommendations, and booked our requested dinner reservation for us. The apartment was exactly what we were hoping for when we booked it, and in a beautiful setting. A mere 15-minute drive to Cortona, with easy access to all of the other "must-sees" in Tuscany, ie Siena, Montepulciano, Assisi, Pienza, Montalcino, and others too numerous to mention. The kitchen and washing machine were life-savers as they allowed us to scale down the amount of luggage we brought and saved us plenty of money on food. I highly recommend to any traveler looking for something different from the usual hotel stay.

We stayed for a week with Nina and Peter and they were lovely people who made us very welcome. We had a lovely south facing patio and of course the huge swimming pool which was a great treat from the heat of the afternoon sun. The apartment was a real home from home and we had everything we could possible need for a lovely holiday. There are lots of lovely places to visit very close by including Cortona, the location for the film 'Under the Tuscan sun'. We would definitely visit again when next in Italy.
