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.
