Relaxing week in southern Tuscany
The house was an ideal location for visiting southern Tuscany and lago Trasimeno (strictly in Umbria...). It is comfortable and has everything you need for a relaxing stay. Check in was easy... Paolina provided exact GPS co-ordinates and finding the house was straightforward - we were met by Estelle and were soon settled in and sat in the terrace with a glass of wine.
During the week we walked in the hills above Cortona, around Chiusure in the val d'Orcia and these were lovely, but because the weather was so good - it was very warm walking!
Sightseeing we stayed fairly close to home; Cortona, Arezzo and Montepulciano and doubtless missed many other fine places nearby. We drove around lago Trasimeno and enjoyed Castiglione del Lago (excellent truffle omelette for lunch) and Passignano sul Trasimeni (fine aperitivos overlooking the lake).
We ate in Cortona at the Osteria del Teatro (twice) and the Trattoria Toscana. The cooking at the Osteria is doubtless finer but the grilled veal chop at the trattoria will live on in my memory for a long time!
We were lucky with the weather and were able to spend most of our time at the house relaxing on the terrace - we BBQ'd twice and were able to eat outside the whole week.
All in all, this was a splendid week in a relaxing house... we enjoyed it very much.
