About the property

Max Beds: 7, Min Beds: 6, Double Beds: 3, Single Beds: 0, Baths: 2, Reference: 12744

The best feature of this Cortona villa is, without a doubt, the endless, unobstructed view over the valley below-- literally one of the best panoramas we have ever seen. And the villa itself isn't too shabby, either! With a private swimming pool, comfy living area, and close proximity to Cortona, which is where the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" starring Diane Lane takes place as well as the book it's based off of by Frances Mayes, this villa for rent provides everything you need for a relaxing family vacation. Pick up groceries and barbecue dinner with an amazing view at this Tuscany villa, or meander into town and try one of the many delicious restaurants. Either way, you won't be disappointed!

(3,000 m2) Although only a short distance from the city of Cortona, this villa enjoys absolute privacy and quiet. It is located on the side of a steep hill, offering endless views of the valley floor below from both the villa and the private swimming pool (8m x 4m). The villa is accessed from one of the main roads of Cortona, which turns off onto a gravel drive. The drive leads past the owner's villa (your only neighbor) and then up a steep incline to the villa itself. Just past the villa, steps lead up to the swimming pool which enjoys the same panoramic views. The garden and pool areas are equipped with a table and umbrella for outdoor dining, sun lounges by the pool, and a barbecue.

(185 m2)

Ground Floor: Entering into the living room of this villa, you will find a comfortable sofa and chairs along with a fireplace and satellite TV.

This floor also has a guest bathroom with a sink and toilet.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Vista Infinita was just perfect! Nicoletta and Beppi (the owners and next door neighbors) were so helpful. It was great to be able to walk into Cortona, although it is not a very easy walk. The view is spectacular and we loved just sitting on the lawn and admiring it.

Enjoyed Most:

The view and the town of Cortona. It is a very special place.

Surrounding Area:

We never got tired of Cortona. There are so many great restaurants, shops, bars, etc. Everytime we left to explore other places in Tuscany, we came racing back to Cortona and appreciated it even more!

Nearby Events or Locales:

Cortona is a 15-minute walk away. Downhill on the way and uphill all the way back. In the car it is 2 minutes--if you can find a place to park.

Tips or Restaurants:

We joked (kind of) that a Vespa would be an invaluable asset to the villa. There are so many great restaurants and Nicoletta was very helpfuul with recommendations. La Logetta was very pretty and La Grotta was our favorite restaurant.

Check In Out:

We had to meet an agent in a different town who we then followed to Cortona--where we met the owner and then followed her to the house. It seemed like a few extra steps.

Much better than expected....

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Much better than expected.

Enjoyed Most:

View, cleanliness, owners.

Enjoyed Least:

The climb to the villa was not lighted and the last few hundred meters are narrow.

Surrounding Area:

Cortona is wonderful; it's within walking distance.

Directions:

GPS is essential. We had to contact the local agent; it was hard to get a hold of her on arrival day.

Check In Out:

We arrived at 11 AM and wanted to leave our car on the property with the luggage so that we could explore Cortona; unfortunately we were not allowed to do so.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Vista Infinita was a perfect spot for our family. Easy walking distance to the town of Cortona 10 minutes, a great pool, and an incredible view of the valley and lake below.

Enjoyed Most:

Proximity to Cortona. Wonderful pool. Beautiful grounds.

Enjoyed Least:

Beds could be more comfortable. Extra linens would be nice.

Surrounding Area:

Cortona is a wonderful town to walk to with great restaurants, friendly people, and hidden gems at every turn.

Tips or Restaurants:

Speak to Beppe and Nicoletta who are the caretakers-owners of the property and with whom you share a driveway. Talk to them early and get their recommendations right away. They sent us to some great restaurants. And drink the local wine!

Directions:

The road up to the property is very steep and looks impassable, but you have to go for it.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

We had a great time! The villa was beautiful with a nice flat lawn for bocce playing which we brought with us and an outside grill to cook on. The rooms were comfortable. We enjoyed a variety of experiences including a cooking lesson at our place - excellent!.

Enjoyed Most:

We loved having a great panoramic view of the valley below. In addition, having access to a swimming pool was great, especially since we had some warm June days.

Enjoyed Least:

The kitchen was fairly small. We had a cooking lesson at our villa, which worked only because there is a eating area right by the kitchen that we used for the prep work.

Surrounding Area:

We liked being able to walk easily into town - 10 min. Cortona was a great little place with fun little shops and delicious restaurants. We also found many towns, Assisi and Arezzo, and vineyards to explore nearby.

Tips or Restaurants:

If you are interested in visiting some vineyards, I would suggest researching where to go before arriving and making some appointments ahead of time.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

It was fabulous. This is our 3rd Rentvillas villa and they have never let us down.

Enjoyed Most:

The view is stunning. The house is close to Cortona - a 5 minute walk, yet you feel removed from the town itself.

Enjoyed Least:

The property was lovely.

Surrounding Area:

Cortona is beautiful with loads of art and beautiful old houses up the steep brick roads. Florence is just an hour drive away and very easy to reach.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Cortona is a 5 minute walk down a hill. Remember, however, that you need to walk back up to get home, so it may be hard for someone who has difficulty moving around.

Tips or Restaurants:

The villa was so lovely that we stayed in to eat most of our meals. A flashlight might be a good idea to walk up the hill if returning after dark.

Directions:

We couldn't find it at all. We called Beppe and Nicolletta, however, and they were at the parking area within 5 minutes to get us.

Check In Out:

Nicoletta and Beppe were very nice. She speaks good English and Beppe can certainly understand if you talk slowly.

Map

This property is located just outside of the city of Cortona, about 400 meters from town. It is possible to walk down a steep drive from the villa and into town; for a shorter drive you can park your car at the end of the drive and easily walk in. Built high on a hill, Cortona, made famous by Under the Tuscan Sun, is absolutely beautiful from below... and once you get to the top, there are simply marvelous vistas over the entire valley. A couple of main streets feed into a charming piazza, and at the edge of the historic center there is a lovely public garden with fantastic views. Cortona is, however, a town for walkers. Streets run either uphill or down, and there are plenty of historic sights dotting the hillside just begging to be explored on foot. A train station (Terontola Cortona) about 3 km away makes taking day trips to other major cities simple and convenient. Florence (airport): 140 km Siena: 72 km Assisi: 69 km Perugia: 49 km Arezzo: 30 km Camucia (Train station): 3 km Cortona: 400 meters
