Amazin Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our family has holidayed in this apartment three times and each time has been a joy. The apartment is part of a beautifully restored olive mill, set among delightful gardens and with a good size pool which has a stunning view of the surrounding hills. It is very comfortably furnished in typical local style and the kitchen has all mod-cons, making cooking a pleasure, especially with the abundant local ingredients. The lounge area has ample seating and plenty of floor space to accommodate kids and their inevitable toys and detritus, and this in turn leads onto a common patio area where you can eat outside in pleasant surroundings. If you are unlucky enough to encounter inclement weather, however, the dining table seats six comfortably. The house suited our family well with two bedrooms and lounge with TV and DVD player which was also helpful at the end of the day with the children.The house is surrounded by beautiful gardens, with ample space for kids to run around in as well as pretty seating areas – there's even a vineyard, lovingly tended to by one of the owners. Location-wise, Cortona – a gorgeous Etruscan town perched improbably at the top of a steep Tuscan hill – is only 5 minutes away, and has many places of historical significance, including an abundance of Etruscan tombs. You can also do a stunning walk to Cortona. Cortona has great bars and restaurants, presided over by friendly locals, and the laid-back 'arty' vibe that prevails, with little galleries and artists' studios round every corner. And if you wish to travel further afield, the autostrada is conveniently located, making it easy to visit many Tuscan and Umbrian towns and cities, for example, Florence, Siena, Perugia and Orvieto. Perhaps the most significant element of holidaying in this part of Tuscany is that you are also close to Umbria and towns like Assissi.

So would we go again? Emphatically yes!

excellent location for tuscany

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and very well maintained. The facilities were excellent. We were met on arrival by the rep and she was so helpful giving us details and tips for the area.

The location is excellent as it is within driving distance from the key tourist attractions such as Montepulciano, sienna, arrezo, luca etc.

The customer service was excellent and there was very good info on restaurants and other points of interest , in the apartment.
