"Villa Stefania" Old Tuscan Farmhouse - Great View on Cortona
average rating of 5.0 based on 36 reviews

It is a very nice villa and the location is great. Very peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

It is a great place. We we a small group of 9 friends and family members. Lots of room. The views were great. We did a bit of walking around the area. I would recommend this villa to anyone who wants to relax and enjoy the Tuscan countryside. The town of Cortona is very nice. It has many nice shops and good restaurants. This location was our hub for day teipa to San Gimignano, Florence, Siena, etc. You won't be disappointed.

Incredible Villa with a great location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was gorgeous, clean, organized and well furnished. The pool was incredible with amazing views and the kids loved spending the afternoons by the pool. The hosts were very nice and available for questions. The location was central enough where we were able to make day trips to Siena, Arrezo, Florence, and many trips to Cortona. We went in the middle of August and the villa was cool enough inside we only had to occasionally use the air conditioning. I really don't have anything negative to say. It was just a fabulous 2 week vacation for the family.

Perfect Villa to Explore Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Villa Stefania was the perfect place to explore Tuscany with our daughters, their spouses, and our four grandchildren (pre-school to teenage). There were ten of us in all and plenty of room for everyone to have his or her space as well as explore the property. The furnishings in the house were lovely, the bedrooms very large, the baths very modern, and the kitchen was well equipped. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained, and the views of Cortona and Tuscany were breathtaking, especially from the pool area. The pool and surrounding area made one feel as if you were in a movie, complete with terraces, lovely pool, chaises, and table and chairs with umbrella for a lovely poolside lunch. Often, photos are misleading , especially if taken with a wide angle lens. In the case of Villa Stefania, the Villa and property outshines the photos.

Villa Stefania was the perfect respite after a day of sightseeing. We love Cortona and enjoyed introducing our family to it. They loved it, even our 13 year old grandson! All, or part, of our family took easy day trips to Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza, Perugia, and Assisi. Each one was special and worth the drive. Our short drive to Perugia and Assisi was just an hour and half each way which left time for sightseeing.

We've saved the best for last. Stefania assisted us in navigating the small roads to get there, greeted us upon our arrival, and was gracious and helpful. She assisted us in finding a personal chef who prepared a delicious Tuscan dinner for us. He entertained all of our questions, let us watch him do his craft, and even let our granddaughter help serve.

We would give Villa Stefania a 5 Star rating. It was the perfect setting to build family memories that will last a lifetime and beyond.

Beautiful restored villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the villa. You cannot beat the location. It is 5 minutes by car to the town of Cortona, which ended up feeling like a home away from home. Stefania and Luigi were very welcoming. They went out of their way to show us how things worked, even when we bothered them a few times! Stefania greeted us 2 mornings with delicious pastries and was kind enough to provide some gluten free products for my sister and I. She also drove our luggage to the train station when it was time to leave, which was a huge help. Thank you Stefania and Luigi.

I cannot say enough about Cortona, the friendly people and the fantastic food. We were lucky enough to be there during the town's festival week too. The villa is also centrally located to so many other quaint towns. Close to Florence and Rome by train. We drove to some towns and booked tours with Francisco from who was wonderful.

We miss Cortona and hope to return some day.

Villa Stefania and Tuscany were Bella!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Stefania is a beautiful farm house located in the hills of Tuscany. The house was perfect for our group of 8 adults. It's conveniently located to Cortona, where there are many excellent restaurants and shopping. The Coop grocery store is close with good selections of food and wine. We visited the Coop almost everyday and ate many of our evening meals at the villa. The pool at the villa is very nice where we spent the hot afternoons keeping cool. Luigi and Stefania were very gracious hosts, bringing pastries to the villa a couple of mornings. We throughly enjoyed our time at Villa Stefania and would definitely recommend a stay there.

Beautiful and charming

  • 5 of 5

Our thought for a unique vacation was to rent a villa in Tuscany to use as a base camp for daily excursions. When I went to the VRBO website I saw a post for Villa Stefania and the description perfectly matched our needs, and I must admit the picture of the pool was a decider. Well, when we arrived at Villa Stefania, we were more than pleasantly surprised. When Stefania took us on a tour of the inside and outside of the villa, we knew then that our 17-day stay on this property would be perfect in every way and it was. The location is ideal for many day trips by car and the Terontola-Cortona train station is convenient for overnight and day train trips to places like Rome and Florence. Stefania provided us with fresh pastries on 2 occasions and on another a delicious homemade cake. After each day of sightseeing, it was a pleasure to cool off in the pool and enjoy a glass of Chianti. The Villa is surrounded by olive trees, rosemary, lavender and, of course, a small vineyard. The evenings were quiet and we enjoyed listening to the bells of a nearby church while scanning the magnificent views of the hillsides. Stefania gave us some recommendations for ristorantes in Cortona and Camucia and we were not disappointed in any of them. If you are looking for a comfortable, charming, rustic home away from home, look no further - Villa Stefania is for you.
