    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    An perfect setting for a sight seeing holiday, with all home comforts , our medieval 3-storey home lies at the historic heart of walled Cortona, with its gourmet restaurants and pavement cafes. An Etruscan hill town, profiled against rolling oak and olive clad hills, and where Frances Mayes wrote 'Under the Tuscan Sun', Cortona is chosen by countless couples as their perfect wedding venue. Approach our distinctive green wooden door that faces you at the top of a cobbled alleyway, 30 metres from Cortona's only flat street, and enter the gracious sitting room with comfortable leather seating, pellet stove, and cloakroom off. A vaulted stairway (with handrails) leads up to the dining room, a bright, graciously furnished living space, cleverly combining all you need for cooking and... more

Stayed for a week in mid-June, and had a wonderful time. Cottage is as described (probably nicer inside than the photos imply) with all amenities you need (wifi a bit slow and no live TV, but plenty of DVDs on offer) and two lovely porch areas to enjoy the sound of silence. Pool is just spectacular - just a short... more

Kate and Andrew have probably spent a fortune updating it. It is spotless and furnished wonderfully. The bedrooms have air conditioning for... more

Pictures do not show overall comfort, quiet,location and fully equipped. Kate and Andrew are best hosts showing us the property and then tour of town. They had everything well organized with instructions on how to operate everything. The bedrooms were comfortable and quiet. Wish we could have stayed longer. more
