We had a wonderful week in Cortona in June 2011.
Man, wife and three sons. It was very warm so the swimming pool was frequently used.
We rented the Casa Sole, with an extra bed.
Everything was excellent. The apartment was decorated in old style and beautiful. Even two bath rooms, very convenient for five persons.
Maybe the best part was barbecuing in the evenings overlooking the pool and the ancient city of Cortona. Be sure to buy your "bistecca Fiorentina" at the butcher's in Camucia, forget the super market. Much more fun! And try the pasta "pici", thicker "spaghetti", yum!
Cortona, what can you say? Such a beautiful town with small piazzas and narrow alleys.
At Lago Trasimeno we saw snakes fishing in the water, a non-venomous snake known as "Dice Snake".
We even took a longer trip to Montepulciano, a town where you walk upwards, and upwards, and...
So, the Margherita Holiday Home can be recommended by us strongly. The hosts Beatrice and Bernardo are serviceminded and friendly. Their daughter Margherita is master of performing "la bomba" in the pool. And the donkeys are quiet!
