We based ourselves in Cortona for 3 nights in order to explore this beautiful corner of Italy doing day trips. We chose Villa Marsili based on reviews and were blown away by how fabulous it was and by their outstanding attention to detail, and its comfort, stylish elegance and great staff.
We booked a suite which included a spacious bedroom with a very comfortable bed, a fabulous large bathroom with a jacuzzi, shower and double basin, a lounge with a TV, fridge and very comfortable couches. The suite was really good but the 'piece de resistance ' was surely the views from each rooms windows over the sprawling Val di Chiana and sunflower fields right to Lake Trasimeno. Simply breathtakingly beautiful..
Breakfast was an excellent buffet offering a wonderful selection of cold meats, cheeses and varied pastries, yogurts, fabulous fruits and preserves and, as Id written ahead, a wide selection of gluten free items, so appreciated. Tea and wonderful coffee on the terrace after breakfast completed this superb treat.
The staff at Villa Marsili are amazing, warm, welcoming and so obliging even giving me a farewell gift as a reminder of our stay there. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Thank you to charming Stefano, lovely Julia at reception, the barman and the breakfast staff.
Cortona is a charming and very beautiful hilltop town made famous by Frances Mayes ( Under the Tuscan Sun ), it has so much to offer the art lover and is a visual treat in terms of archtecture, vistas and history.
Villa Marsili adds to Cortonas charm and is a truly superb hotel with no opportunity overlooked to satisfy their guests, even the exquisite complimentary snacks between 6 and 8 pm before one goes into town for dinner, and then the Vin Santo, Cantucci and fresh fruits waiting in the lounge on ones return from the evening out.
We are so happy we found Villa Marsili and wouldnt hesitate to recommend it to anyone wanting accommodation that is a cut above the rest.
