  • 4 of 5

Overall:

The villa was beautiful, loved the view of the church, would love to live there.

Enjoyed Most:

Loved it all: villa, scenery, proximity to Cortona and Camucia. Very comfortable and pretty quiet most times.

Enjoyed Least:

There is a villa nearby with barking dogs.

Surrounding Area:

Everything is close. We walking to shopping and the market and got a lot of exercise that way.

Tips or Restaurants:

We loved Cortona. The locals were friendly and gave us good recommendations for places to visit and wine to try. Bring or rent a car with a GPS; I think it would have saved us. Make sure you have a 3-prong adapter as the 2-prong Europe ones do not work. It's very helpful to know some Italian!

Overall:

The stay was very relaxing. We were there to celebrate my 50th birthday. Enjoyed the villa very much.

Enjoyed Most:

The view was incredible. The architecture of the villa was amazing.

Enjoyed Least:

There was nothing about the property we did not like.

Surrounding Area:

The views.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Cortona. It was walkable, but the terrain is pretty intense and we had an elderly woman with us so we opted to take the car.

Tips or Restaurants:

Be very careful with adapters for electronics. I had bought the appropriate adapter, but it did not work in all of the outlets in the villa. I would like to suggest Il Loccato. It is delicious. Also, please visit Molesini Wineshop. Incredible variety of wines. Brunello rocks.

Directions:

We did not use GPS. Villa was difficult to find! Driveways are somewhat secluded.

Check In Out:

As the key holder did not speak fluent English, check-in and check-out were a little challenging.

Overall:

The villa was better than expected. We loved it. You definitely need a car.

Enjoyed Most:

Loved the view of the church and all the architecture. It was very private and had a nice yard.

Enjoyed Least:

The entrance driveway to the property.

Surrounding Area:

Location was good. Travelled to Cortona and other surrounding towns. Liked being not far from Cortona for shopping and dining.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Cortona--not within walking distance.

Tips or Restaurants:

All the food was wonderful. In Cortona, go to Molesini wine shop. Marco was very helpful and speaks English.

Directions:

We did not have a GPS, which would have helped. Had to call owners a few times to confirm directions, but their English isn't good. Texting was much easier. We were very glad to arrive at the villa.

Check In Out:

We liked the adventure. It's helpful to know some Italian.
