It was difficult to communicate because there was no one on the premises who spoke English.

Lack of air conditioning made sleeping in some bedrooms unbearable. Very hot weather during our stay - kitchen no AC.
Dishwasher very unreliable. There are no signs for Villa Elisa - even the people next door had no idea where it was. There should be far more local information available as the owner speaks no English. Bus timetables , taxi firms, bike hire, etc. We had a wonderful time at Villa Elisa but the basic requirements for a 5 star rating are not being met.
We got off to a bad start as it took me an hour to find the house. The name of the villa is not shown on any signpost or gatepost. We called at the villa next door and the had never heard of Villa Elisa. We asked various locals who were walking in the area but received only blank looks. We did not realise that it was part of Villa Salcotto - fortunately my son turned up and his google map led us to our destination. We received a very warm welcome from the owner and a guided tour of the property and grounds. The grounds and pool were very impressive. The accommodation was tested to the limit as the temperature during our stay was mid thirties to forty and we were plagued by mosquitoes. Our only complaint would be the lack of air-conditioning in most rooms. A problem with the dishwasher caused an upset as the owner did not want us to contact the agency - although there was a sign up in kitchen telling us to do so and our lack of Italian combined with her lack of English could not have resolved the problem. We had a wonderful week at Villa Elisa and little things such as bus timetables to Cortona, names of local taxi firms, recommended local restaurants would have been very useful. It is about a 20 minute walk to Camucia which has a number of very good restaurants and bars. The views of Cortona from the pool are spectacular as are the woodpeckers and hoopoe in the grounds. As light upgrading of air-conditioning and mosquito repellents would have given us the perfect holiday

Beautiful villa in stunning rural setting walkable to amenities and a short drive / bus from Cortona. Gorgeous pool area. Cooking facilities very basic with ancient appliances. Bathrooms dated but clean. Fantastic characterful property in lovely setting but facilities dated.
