My only problem with this property was having to pay the cleaning fee in cash and not knowing about it until we had already booked, also being charged for using the heat was unusual, we have rented many apartments in Italy in the past .
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!
