We stayed in Villa Primula with a group of 10 people, including a little baby and simply loved everything about our stay. We had a slight miscommunication regarding check in and getting the keys, but the problem was solved within minutes by the owner after we texted him. The villa was beautiful - although a little cold the night we arrived - and we really enjoyed the privacy it offered, even though it is located so close to everything. Ten minute walk to the train station and to the supermarket, two minutes from the nearest restaurant, you could by tickets two the bus to Cortona from around the corner and get to the bus in five minutes... We had considered renting a car during our stay, but quickly realized it really wasn't necessary. The pool are was very nice and a great place to relax. All in all the owner made us feel very welcome and well taken care off and it was an extremely wonderful week in Camucia and Cortona and we will definitely be back someday!
The location of the home was very convenient to restaurants and shopping, but far enough to be very quiet. It is a large home with plenty of room for several families. It was very clean and well stocked. The decor is charming and reflects the period of time when the home was built. Check in was extremely easy. We didn't get a chance to use the pool because we were there in April, so it was too cold. The only drawback was the electricity. We were surprised by the amount he charges for electricity. We were there for 4 nights, about 1 hour at night and 1 hour in the morning. The charge for the electricity was 29eur. But, I would definitely recommend this home.
Our villa is ideally located within the pretty village of Camucia, just below the famous Cortona. This is the perfect place for all those people that don't want to rely constantly on a car while on holiday: the village offers excellent restaurants, shops as well as a train station all within easy walking distance from the property. Enjoy a walk through the square on thursday to see the market, taste a fantastic pizza or catch a train to visit Florence, Siena, Rome..: Camucia is the perfect base for a turly Tuscan holiday. Additionally the Lake Trasimeno, with beaches and sunbathing opportunities, is just 15 minutes drive away.
