The setting around the Villa was breath taking, the Villa Liliana was a separate entity within the Villa Ugo property. It was spacious, well appointed with comfortable beds lucious linens / towels, and ensuite bathrooms to each of the three bedrooms. The Villa and surrounding property was well maintained and planted with beautiful vines and flowers. Both indoor and outdoor living spaces. The hospitality and eagerness of both Ugo and Nicoletta(wife) to make our stay magical was quite evident in our warm and informal conversations, as well as their attention to detail. A great location to just take in Cortona or branch out on short day trips to Montepulciano, Montalcino or into Umbria. Also staff available to cook at additional cost...very delicious and reasonable.

Since 1890, my family, the Sabatini’s have lived in the 16th century Villa Ugo, surrounded by over 11 hectares of olive groves and vineyards. The groves were once divided into three fields, where secondary houses were inhabited by tenant farmers. These three Villas also date, in part, to the 16th century, and I have carefully and beautifully restored them while maintaining the style, history and culture of the area and mindfully adding all the modern amenities and comforts.
