“A lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 5 October 2012 via mobile

We stayed for two weeks in late September, early October and enjoyed our stay very much. The villa is in a little village only 25 mins from Cortona which has a number of excellent restaurants, shops, art galleries and museum.The location of the villa is on a small rise affording great views across the fields to the hill of Cortona. We got some great photos here as the sun was setting and the lights of Cortona came up.The villa and surrounds are very well maintained with sculptured weeping olive trees in the front yard and neat pool and lawns. A lovely place to come home to after a long day travelling.Our unit was 2 bedroom and comfortable although the bathroom was very small for us.Isolina was usually around to provide help and advice.
Being here at the end of the season meant there was not a lot of other guests which made it very private.The small shop around the corner sold packaged and fresh food and even wine and beer.A car is essential in order to access the villa and attractions around.
We would certainly recommend this villa.

Reviewed 11 September 2011

We stayed at Agriturismo - Fattoria - Le Giare in July 2011. It was not something that we found ourselves, but a good friend who lives in the area recommended it to us. We stayed in a large apartment (Spiga) which could had a king sized bed and bunk beds. As there were only two of us ... we have plenty of room. The apartment was very roomy and the windows looked out to the pool and the mountains where we could see Cortona in the distance.

The hostess was extremely helpful but didn't speak very much English. Luckily our friend did! There were guests from all around Europe staying and they spoke English. It was a social kind of place where people got together in the evenings. (We stayed for 10 nights.)

There are fields of sunflowers all around the farmhouse which were beautiful. There was a quaint church at the end of the street (about 100 meters) away and we were lucky enough to see a beautiful local wedding. Around the corner there was a small shop that we were told sold food ... but we never did get to the shop. The pool was very welcome at the end of touring around Tuscany. It was a most perfect place to have a swim and look up to Cortona and the fields and mountains.

All in all the location was perfect (but you would need a car) and as it was close to Cortona ... we drove to Cortona on most evenings and had dinner. (There are a couple of other locations that you could dine at as well, for example Il Melone which was very special and we spent our anniversary there.)
