We spent 4 nights in Cortona and thoroughly enjoyed it. What made it really memorable was the fabulous 'Il Giardino'. It is close to free parking and within short walking distance of the two main piazzas.
We were a party of 3 adults and there was plenty of room. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils and there is a laundry on the bottom level. The roof top terrace is delightful and we used it often for meals.
The owner, Simona, is a wonferful person, giving great advice and hints.
We will definitely stay here next time we visit.
