Perfect house with amazing location!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our stay in "Il Nido" and the house lived up to all of our expectations and more!

The house and surroundings are beautiful and 100% clean. The very friendly owners cleaned the surroundings and pool almost every day.

Decoration and interior shows very good taste and very well thought through. It is visible to see everything maintained with knowing and loving hands! All needed accessories are available upon arrival together with a nice welcome basket. You do not need to bring anything to this house and still have everything you need.

Location of the pool is at a lower level than house. Not visible from the house, but easily accessible by both stairs and a walking path. The pool area is quite safe, considering smaller children, as it fenced almost all the way around. It was very easy to explain our children that they could not go there without us.

Mentioned by other here the pool area is the perfect place to relax during the days, as the views from there are amazing.The pool itself is easy accessible with stairs in one end and a good depth for children in the low end.

All of the surroundings with olive trees, flowers, spices etc. is nicely fenced to let out the wildlife and create 100% safety for our kids.

Mentioned as well by others the last part of the road leading to the house can be a slight challenge. We did not have any issues with this but some driving skills are required :-)

Our family of two adults and two children stayed there for 2 weeks and we could easily have stayed longer. The location of the house with the view on the valley is perfect! The privacy level and quietness is even better than we anticipated and we are planning to come back again!

Finally, we would like to mention the amazing and very friendly owners of the house. They are very helpful and assisted in any way they could to ensure we have the best possible time in “Il Nido”.

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!
