Wonderful experience in Cortona!

  • 5 of 5

It is the second time that we decided to spend a week at Antica Quercia Verde.

I wrote this review last year...."

They call it "agriturismo" (farm stay)... it is a wonderful boutique hotel immersed in nature at the door steps of the beautiful Cortona.

The cottages are tastefully renovated and are extremely comfortable and private, our cottage had a nice outdoor area with a table, a barbecue and a lot of space just for us. The pool has a magnificent view over the valley and Cortona. The location is simply fantastic, particularly for people that like to walk in nature and discover the real treasures of Cortona (Le Celle, Santa Maria Nuova, the Roman road, the Etruscan sites of il Melone). The road to reach Antica Quercia Verde is tricky the first time around as there are no signs (and 500 meters of gravel road).

Wonderful food prepared primarily with organic, local, high quality produce (the farm makes one of the best Extra Virgin Olive Oils I have ever tasted). The local expertise on wines was a big plus for us. Most importantly the hosts are really wonderful and helped us to have one of the best holidays ever."

This year was even better primarily because the weather was exceptionally pleasant.

Highly recommended!!!!!!!
