Villa Rosa is suitable for all types of holiday makers.

Although the house is suitable for the family - mum, dad and two children we provide extra fold out beds (2) that you may use for another two children if needed. Baby is not forgotten with a porta-cot, high chair and pushchair. The house is a superb combination of the old and the new. A 400 year old cottage with a 21st century renovation and addition that has created a comfortable, two level, two double bedroom, two bathroom home with an easy indoor/outdoor living area and stunning pool area and lawn. Furnished with all the home comforts that make you melt into your surroundings and never want to leave. We have Free internet/Wi-Fi, stereos and books, plenty of garden to play in, a pool to relax and snooze by and a vista to die for. The location is perfect - close enough to walk into Cortona for entertainment, eating & drinking, markets, shops and nightlife but just far away from this hustle and bustle to cosset yourselves in its private and secluded garden and pool for pure relaxation.

About the neighbourhood
Cortona is well serviced to make any holiday easy and enjoyable.
