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.

Wonderful villa with an amazing view over Cortona.

Would definitely consider returning

Excellent Choice!

  • 5 of 5

All around 5 stars. Fantastic location,easy to get around by car. We rented both homes for 4 people. Both villas were perfect.The owners were nice enough to leave the pool open for us even though it is normally closed by Oct 1. This way we were able to enjoy the ambiance of sitting by the pool at night looking at the lights on top of the hill in Cortona. Stefania also cooked us a wonderful dinner on request which was incredible.I definitely think having the owners nearby & available for questions was very helpful.Stefania was very gracious & went above & beyond for one of the ladies in our party to get something shipped home. We all felt that the villa had everything needed to enjoy our week in Tuscany.You will not go wrong choosing Villa Stefania. Grazie Luigi & Stefania for a memorable stay in Italy!

Perfect Tuscan villa!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at Villa Stefania, we adored this property. This villa is a refuge from the hustle and bustle of the world. The view of Cortona from the pool and several windows is breathtaking....from sunrise to sunset. The pool is gorgeous and such an oasis of tranquility at the end of a day of travel. Stefania and Luigi were wonderful hosts. They greeted us on arrival and as we departed. Stefania brought delicious pastries one morning for our group of 10. We had two families of 5 and had plenty of space, never felt crowded. It was so nice to have a washing machine and fully stocked kitchen. Cortona is a beautiful town with many good restaurants, shops, and history...only a 10 minute drive. This location was also ideal for many day trips by car. We were able to visit Siena, Assisi, Montepulciano, and Florence (by train). This villa was everything we hoped for and more. Villa Stefania is a beautiful, picturesque and charming vacation home! Perfect! Grazie Mille!

Heavenly time in Cortona, Italy at Villa Stefania

  • 5 of 5

Lounging poolside from the lovely and charming Villa Stefania, we would gaze at the mountainside town of Cortona - with local wine in hand - lost in absolute beauty. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed a magical trip with our adult children (and grandchild) for a week at Stefania and Luigi's multi-centuries-old Tuscan farmhouse. They have the villa in impeccably clean condition with thoughtful creative touches throughout the place. It is large with the 5 bedrooms and 3 baths. Roam around the olive trees in back, inspect the vines, view all the herbs and gardens that surround the place. And by all means plan some time at the pool to absorb the stunning beauty of the estate and surrounding mountain views. You will also find Cortona to be a very charming town nearby. You have to visit its many landmarks including Fra Angelico frescoes and Signorelli paintings.

Stefania and Luigi are also very gracious hosts and we were treated to sumptuous tiramisu one evening to the delight of us all. Stefania even drove one of our remaining kids to the local train station as the rest of us had to leave much earlier for a Rome flight departure.

If you are looking for a comfortable yet otherworldly experience that will touch your soul, I highly recommend this villa!

Grazie, Grazie!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, I and two other couples just spent an amazing 5 days at Villa Stefania. Luigi and Stefania were great hosts. They made sure that we felt very welcome and had everything we needed for our stay. Stefania surprised us two mornings of our stay with delicious breakfast pastries. One evening we returned from dinner to find homemade tiramisu for our dessert. We were very spoiled!!

The villa is clean and modernized, but still gave you the feeling of old world charm. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The washer was an added extra, so nice because we were traveling for an additional 8 days in Italy. The grounds are beautifully manicured with flowers, and have fig trees, olive trees, a grape vineyard and huge rosemary bushes. So gorgeous. The pool was beautiful, although the chilly weather prevented us from using it. We spent many peaceful mornings sitting outside at the Deruta table in the courtyard, drinking coffee and listening to the Bells of Cortona. We hope to return someday soon.
