    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
    Located just below the beautiful hilltop walled town of Cortona, La Scuderia has the charm of a country cottage while enjoying the benefits of a walk to a nearby village with bars, shops and restaurants or even into Cortona itself (uphill walking or 5 minutes by car). The cottage sits in a parklike garden with a beautiful swimming pool. The owners' house is in the grounds but they are so large there is almost total privacy and La Scuderia has its own private courtyard area. It is a great base for exploring Tuscany and Umbria with good connections to the autostradas. Lake Trasimeno is only a 15 minute drive and mainline station with direct trains to Rome and Florence is only a 10 minute drive. Siena is 35 minutes by car. Bicycles are available for guests' use.

We were in Cortona for a week for my cousin's wedding. As two couples it was quite difficult to find a small villa that met our expectations, La Scuderia certainly did.

Upon arrival the owner, Lucia, met us to show us around. She had made a beautiful pie (which was all eaten and very delicious) and some fresh tomatoes from her garden. The villa is almost an extension to her own home, but it is completely private. You do not feel overlooked at all and Lucia and her family were just around the corner if needed. The grounds around the villa are very peaceful and quiet.

It is up several winding roads so make sure you follow the directions given carefully. As Lucia is on site it made check in and out very simple and easy.

For a 2 bedroomed villa it has more than enough space for 2 couples or a family of 4 and it was nice and clean. There is a shared bathroom upstairs and a small w/c downstairs. For couples, do not be put off by the fact that one of the...

La Scuderia was a simple and comfortable house in lovely secluded grounds, with an amazing swimming pool. Lucia provided a very welcoming and helpful service if we had any questions and made useful recommendations about the local area.
The downstairs toilet was an added bonus. The shower was good and beds were comfortable and clean. Some bins in the bedrooms and side tables downstairs would have been useful. You definitely need a car!
Cortona was a really lovely town with a wide range of eateries and interesting places to visit. The location is also well placed to visit other areas of interest, such as Siena or Assissi.
