Picture perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is absolutely breathtaking! We had a group of eight stay during our visit and we were all very comfortable as there was plenty of space to accomodate our group. Every detail is taken care of and the location is perfect. We were able to explore the region with day trips and Cortona is very close to the house. We also had dinner prepared for us at the villa and it was absolutely delicious and felt like straight out of a dream! I highly recommend this villa for your visit to Tuscany!

Can't say enough about this little piece of heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four spent three weeks this summer at this wonderful villa and we had a fabulous time. The grounds were perfect for our children to run around in and provided more than enough space when other families came to visit. And of course the pool went over well with the kids too. The house itself is spacious and gorgeous with a huge rustic kitchen and a great outdoor loggia for dining, We hit some of the local towns in the area---Castiglioni sul Lago, Montepulciano, Panicale, Cortona, etc., but arguably our fondest memories are of sitting back, prosecco in hand, watching the sunset turn the valley into a sea of gold and purple. All in all, just a wonderful, magical place!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

L’Olivio feels secluded, the gardens are immaculate, and we found the layout ideal for our large family (mainly teenagers). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay – Cortona is an excellent base from which to visit Tuscany and Umbria, and L’Olivio was a perfect home from home.

Tranquil comfort

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with our holiday at L'Olivio. The location is beautiful - a lovely outlook and surrounded by lush gardens giving the impression of seclusion, even though the neighbouring properties are not too far away. Accommodation is very comfortable - and gave sufficient space for our family of eight (most of them teenagers) to spread out and do their own thing. The team who look after the property do so very attentively, yet without getting in the way and keep it all looking pristine.

A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

A peaceful week spent at a wonderful Villa in Tuscany. Our family used this villa as our base while visiting the Tuscany region. It was perfect for making day trips into a number of villages as well as trips to Florence (1hour and 15 minutes). The best part of each day was returning to L'Olivo - a comfortable resting spot with much privacy and fantastic view. The owner was exceptionally agreeable to work with and there is even a cook ready to provide meals when needed. We enjoyed a delicious dinner under the Tuscan stars. Hoping to return one day!
