Beautifully set on the unspoilt hills surounding Cortona, among chestnut trees and beautiful valleys, the stone-built Villa Margherita Due is the perfect property for an unforgettable holiday in Tuscany. The villa offers welcoming indoor areas, furnished with taste and style, together with an incredibly large private garden with swimming pool and panoramic views. Wether you want to spend lazy days by the private pool or you want to venture out on the many paths for a pleasant walk, Villa Margherita Due will be the perfect choice offering all the comforts for a unique holiday at an unbeatable price.
The villa is set on one floor (with additional mezzanine level) and comprises 2 double bedrooms, a twin bedroom (on the mezzanine level) with additional single bed (suitable for a child), open plan kitchen/dining area with sofa, satellite tv and wi-fi internet, and a large family shower room. Just outside the villa a shaded dining area with barbeque are available for al-fresco dining.
Highlight of the villa will be without any doubts the huge, private swimming pool set within private gardens planted with local trees, flowers and equipped with a playground for children and table tennis facilities: a true heaven for the lovers of outdoor living! The pool measures 14m x 7m and enjoys beautiful views under the glorious Tuscan sunshine.
This is a great place, spotlessly clean and reasonably well equipped. The owners are friendly and the views are stunning except for an ugly bard built in front of the property that ruins it a bit. It is lower down the hill though so you can see over it.
There was only two of us so we had enough space though I would imagine it would be crowded with the maximum number of 7. There are only 2 comfortable chairs downstairs so we used the settee and chairs in the upstairs mezzanine as our living area in the evening. The owners run a small restaurant at the side of their house which serves simple, fantastic food. It's only open Monday to Friday so if you arrive on a Saturday I'd suggest stopping off in a town on the way there for supplies.
The pool was clean and large and there are several living areas in the garden for you to follow the sun during the day.
Lovely villa, smooth booking process and excellent service. Beautiful location with panoramic views and breeze cooling down the area during evenings. Property very clean, friendly owners (that also run a good restaurant nearby), unspoilt location. We all loved the pool (really huge) and the gardens. Highly recommended property.
We had a lovely relaxing time at the villa, beautiful sunsets over the hills every evening. The pool is perfectly set and huge! We went mid August to beginning of September and although pool water was cool, once in it was fine and we all enjoyed it very much. Our biggest problem was with the wifi/internet. More often than not we had no connection as the property is quite remote, 12km from Cortona up winding roads. With elderly parents to contact in the UK and having a teenager with us this was an issue for us and provided a certain amount of stress. But if you want to get a way from it all this would be the perfect property to go to as it is so peaceful. Also be aware that this probably isn't the property for very small children or the infirm as it is on an incline and you would need to watch where you step and the mezzanine level has sloping ceilings.
This rustic property was very clean and exactly as described. The owners provided a good level of care but didn't get in the way.
We visited Perugia, Cortona and Florence and enjoyed all very much. It is a lovely part of the world but on the whole you do have to do the 12km journey to Cortona every time you go out as most places are in that direction.
I would most certainly recommend it to other people. It is the perfect place to get away from everything and relax in the sun.
The hills surrounding Cortona are a true heaven of peace, with green trees, glorious sunny days and refreshing breezes during the summer evenings. Our villa is located within easy reach of the town center (which is a few minutes drive away), with its fantastic restaurants and traditional shops, as well as the Trasimeno Lake for sunbathing and swimming opportunities. Therefore this is the perfect location for a truly Tuscan holiday close to the most famous art cities (Siena, Florence, Cortona, Arezzo, but also Rome and Perugia) as well as to the beautiful and uspoilt forests of Central Italy.
