Room & Suite (21)


Il Sole del Sodo is a small and cozy Bed & Breakfast with 6 charming rooms and 5 cousy apartments-allowing you to sleep-in and relax by the pool while being surrounded by our stunning Tuscan countryside. Situated outside the ancient Etruscan walls of Cortona - only 1 1/2 miles from the town centre. Our property is named after the neighborhood in which it is located and the sunshine that illuminates our gardens during the day. We offer the ideal holiday location, making our property the perfect base for daytrips to valleys and charming towns in close proximity to Cortona - from Valdichiana to Val D'Orcia, Montalcino to Pienza, spas to churches frescoed by Piero della Francesca and to nearby Umbria with its enchanting landscapes.
