SISTERS TRIP

  • 5 of 5
The home, the property, the view.... truly everything I imagined Tuscany to be and more. The first morning we woke to a view that was out of a movie, birds singing and distant church bells ringing. Beautiful flowers, olive trees and fresh herbs on the property. Perfectly maintained, clean and safe. The owners were absolutely wonderful. We missed our connecting flight due to a delay and they met us at 1AM with smiling faces. Cortona is a short drive away and by far was our favorite town. An hours drive from cooking class the Chianti region or Wine tour out of Siena. Highly recommend taking the train to Florence as well. The crowded city reminded us of how much we loved the peace at Il Nido Degli Ulivi! It's not a question of if we will be back, but rather when! Thank you Michela, Giuseppina and Danilo for making our sisters trip so special.

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent a week at the beautiful and quiet Il Nido Degli Ulivi. Everything was perfect. The house is beautiful and decorated with taste. It is VERY clean. The kitchen is convenient and you have all you need to cook for a family of 4. The garden is so well maintained! The brick BBQ is easy to use and works very well. The pool area is perfect to enjoy the beautiful sunset with the view of the valley. Thank you to the owners who are absolutely fantastic. Very warm and helpful.

IL NIDO - LIKE PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our 2 weeks vacation at Il Nido. The house is beautiful located, full of flowers, very well maintained and provides impeccable views to the breathtaking valley. We had an adorable, relaxing time in and around the house and the wonderful pool. All is very well maintained until the smallest detail. The owners are extremely warm, friendly, generous and helpful. A solid car is needed to drive the unpaved roads up to the house, a kind of adventure the kids loved! Highly recommended for a small family looking for a 5-star house in full privacy in a quiet and pieceful setting. We hope to return soon!

ILL NIDO IS A WONDERFUL TUSCAN VILLA

  • 5 of 5
Il Nido is just a super Tuscan Villa - Great and accomadating hosts, the house was immaculate inside and out and very comforatable rooms and beds - the gardens are beautiful - the pool was awesome - the views are incredible (360 views) - You can hike, walk, or just relax at the pool - there is great peace and quiet there day and night! A great place to BBQ on their grill, as well as play some Bocce. Also so close and easy to get to Cortona, Perugia, Siena and Florence! We traveled with our two children 12 & 10 - Il Nido was like a paradise for us, no fuss, great family time and unbelievable privacy!
If you are planning a trip to Tuscany, I cannot think of a better place then Il Nido.

A DELIGHTFUL HOLIDAY AT IL NIDO!

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a wonderful week in Tuscany with our teenage daughters. The villa is the most charming villa we have ever stayed in. The interior was beautifully decorated and furnished with a phenomenal attention to detail. The owners have put their heart and soul into the making of this property. Very clean and beautifully maintained.

Perched high on a hill just behind Cortona it offers stunning views of the surrounding countryside. A car is essential to access this property . The pool was a welcome break from the Tuscan heat and used every day!
Having received a welcome basket on our arrival we also received further treats during our stay! This also provided a perfect opportunity to check that everything was ok for us. They were very willing to please and very friendly. Our Italian improved with the conversations we had!
A local shop (in a small village 5 minutes from the villa) provided everything we needed for self catering.

Cortona is a charming Medieval town and we enjoyed exploring its many narrow streets. We also visited Montepulciano, Arrezzo, Assissi, Castiliogne and Lucignano. Not forgetting the stops at many vinyards on the way!
We sampled much of the Tuscan cuisine but our best meal was at La Loggetta in Cortona. It was a stunning finish to our holiday.
Already planning a return visit next year...one week was not enough!

BEAUTIFUL DESTINATION TO ESCAPE FROM THE BUSY BUSY WORLD!

  • 5 of 5
Il Nido Degli Ulivi is the perfect place to unwind and get away from the busy world we all live in. Our family has enjoyed two wonderful weeks in the beautiful surroundings of Il Nido. It is perfect for a family with children or a couple.

The drive up to the house makes you feel as though you are miles from busy roads and traffic. The secluded house and perfect pool are behind gates so you can shut the outside world out.

We had glorious weather when we were there but despite the unseasonably hot weather the house remained cool in both day and night, but we can also imagine that it would make a wonderful romantic winter getaway, the open fire in the sitting room would make the house feel cozy.

The house has been furnished with beautifully restored antique furniture that adds a touch of luxury to the house. The kitchen is brimming with all the things that you could need for preparing and indulging in all the Tuscan treats that can be bought in Cortona and the surrounding area.

The grounds are sizeable with a beautiful pool area with easy access stairs for getting in and out, and the views from the house are stupendous. As a photographer there were so many opportunities for me to indulge my passion from without leaving house or out and about on days out.

There are many famous sights in close proximity to the house and Rome, Sienna, Florence, PIsa can all be reached in two hours or less, and closer to the house are Assisi, Perugia, Montepulciano, Gubbio, but just 10mins away is the charming and beguiling town of Cortona with a great market, good restaurants and supermarkets in Cortona or Camucia.

The owners are very helpful and friendly. We had a lovely basket of goodies waiting for us on arrival, with things for us and the children, and during our stay they left us a wonderful lemon/apple cake and a bottle of fizz, to help us celebrate my husband's parents 50th Wedding Anniversary when they visited us during our stay.

I would recommend the house and area to my friends and relatives with out a doubt and who know we may return next year!
