Why The Owner chose Cortona

I fell in love with the area on one of our many trips to Italy and decided this was the place I wanted to retire. After renovating the house, I invited various friends to stay and use the house, they were so impressed that I decided to open the doors to other guests who would also appreciate the house, the area and the convenience to many of Tuscany and Umbria's historical and beautiful sites.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Casa Montisole is located on a hilltop above a beautiful agricultural valley with 180 degree views of countryside, valleys and nearby ancient castles. It is a magical place that is wonderful for relaxation or a great base to use for sightseeing and getting to know Tuscany and Umbria.

Magical Montisole, near Cortona, Arezzo Province, Italy

  • 5 of 5
My family (daughter, son-in-law and granddaughters, ages 7 & 9) just returned from a truly magical week at Casa Montisole. The advert I read before I booked 6 months in advance didn't do it justice! It is an old stone and wood farmhouse with several levels, beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable, very clean and well-maintained. It really is a home away from home, with many amenities all of which were in perfect working order. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms modern with continuous hot water. The kitchen was well-fitted out with every conceivable (& expensive) piece of cookware necessary for a family of up to 8. The surrounding garden and further, the countryside, is etched in my mind forever! The pool was inviting and large enough for (non-Olympic) laps and is beautifully situated on the property. It comes with chaise lounges and umbrellas, as the sun is very strong. We particularly enjoyed going into Mercatale, (the nearest small village about a ten minute drive) for our morning breads from the local bakery. Also in Mercatale was "Mimmi's", a ristorante we visited twice as the food was family style (no menu) and absolutely the best pasta we had the two weeks we were in Italy...
Our daily excursions took us to Arezzo, Siena, Gubbio, Lago Trasimeno and Montepulchiano.
All were exciting adventures with lots of challenging driving. Every village and hill town was different and had plenty to offer tourists. I can honestly speak for my family when I say that we never had a bad meal anywhere in Italy, but especially in Tuscany and Umbria.

I would highly recommend Casa Montisole as the perfect vacation spot to bask in glorious
countryside and forget the problems of the world. It was an unforgettable holiday! Having just done my laundry, I'm ready to re-pack and return to that beautiful house.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Casa Montisole in September 2011 for a week. It is a luxuriously renovated farmhouse, just beautiful and comfortable inside. We traveled with my father so the stairs were a bit of a challenge, but for most it would be the perfect get away. It is definately "away from it all" so very quiet. We loved some of the restaurants close by, Mimmi's was fabulous, in Mercatale, and the local winery has fabulous dinners also. We took day trips to many of the walled cities, which was fascinating. Our first time in Italy, and this place made it especially nice for us. Thanks Michael and Stephania!

An Unforgettable Experience

  • 5 of 5
My family, husband and I enjoyed Casa Montisole in June 2010. The house was very clean and cared for, decorated nicely, and included everything you could possibly need while away from home. Our group enjoyed cooking in the kitchen, breathtaking views, cooling off in the pool, and the peacefulness of the country. It was in a great location with great restaurants and shopping not too far away. It was truly an unforgettable experience!

Gorgeous hilltop villa

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Casa Montisole last August and it was truly beautiful. The kitchen is well appointed, and includes all the utensils you might need. The beds are very comfortable and the linens are nice too. The towels in the bathrooms are also good quality. It was quite spacious for our family of four and it could easily accomodate up to three couples comfortably or a large family of seven people. The setting is also really beautiful and relaxing. The location is very central to many of the best sights in Italy, so it's a great place to stay if you want to venture out on day trips. However, you definitely need to rent a car. We would highly recommend this home to anyone interested in touring central Italy or for those who would like to just relax and enjoy the scenery.
