What a special find! This place lets you experience the charming, rustic beauty of a Tuscan farmhouse, while still being within the walls of Cortona. It is basically at the top of the hill town of Cortona, so yes it is a steep walk from downtown – but it is so, so worth it! The grounds are beautiful, even in the fall – you walk to the house along a path lined with olive trees and hedges of rosemary and lavender, and the gardens that wind around the back have roses, grape vines on arbors, and even tomatoes that Luca told us to help ourselves to! It was delightful to be able to cook breakfast with tomatoes and rosemary that we picked that morning right outside the house. The views are absolutely spectacular, and there are multiple locations to enjoy them – whether looking out the windows in the kitchen, or enjoying some wine on the covered patio, or in the seating areas in the garden. The house is rustic but very clean and comfortable, and Luca was a gracious and helpful host. We would highly recommend this place and would love to go back!
Where is the button to leave a 10 star review? VRBO needs to add one for this beautiful property! We can't say enough about this wonderful villa and the incredible owners who were so welcoming to us when we visited Italy in January 2019. Visiting a country where you don't know the language doesn't have to be a problem when you have hosts like these to help out with any questions or needs you may have. They invited us to their home for a delicious dinner and were happy to share everything about Italy and the Cortona area. But beyond that, Davide is a Sommelier, very knowledgable about wine. He set up wine tours for us, helped us rent a vehicle and he even drove us to the wineries (this is for an additional fee of course, but very reasonable and well worth it!). We plan to return for another visit to the villa (with more friends the next time!!!)
