We were blessed to have the opportunity to experience villa rosa. This special place marries Tuscan character with all the modern conveniences you would expect .
A short stroll into quaint corona . A very very special place. We can't recommend it highly enough. We had an amazing meal at the b&b at the top of the road- understated but well worth checking out.

Being within walking distance to Cortona puts Villa Rosa in the perfect position - Tuscan countryside nestled in the hilltop yet within walking distance to town. You are right - it is a very special place. Thank you.

“Paradise”

I have stayed at Villa Rosa on many occasions at different times of the year and have enjoyed it each time. The house is immaculately presented and in wonderful gardens with both kept in top condition by a good support team. The facilities are all you could need for a stay and the views and local wildlife are amazing.

There is a relaxing, tranquil and welcoming atmosphere in the house itself and the entire area, which forms part of a conservation area on the opposite side of the hill to Cortona. It is easy to reach Cortona itself (5mins drive, 15mins brisk walk) if you are looking for bars, restaurants or nightlife.

Arezzo, Florence, Siena, Assisi and Perugia are all easily driveable and there is a good train service south towards Rome or north towards Florence - the station is also only 15 mins drive away. Other hilltop towns including Montepulciano and Montalcino are around 30mins away in the heart of the Tuscan wine region. Food and wine, as you would expect, are excellent in this area and numerous local eateries provide a prime opportunity to explore the local cuisine. The area is also a goldmine of art, architecture and both Etruscan and Roman sites including the site of the Battle of Trasimeno. Cortona itself was home to Pietro da Cortona and Luca Signorelli and has excellent Renaissance architecture.

I would recommend Villa Rosa to anyone as an ideal base to explore southern Tuscany, or simply as somewhere to relax.

The ideal base to explore southern Tuscany (and Umbria). Villa Rosa is perfectly located for both walking into the beautiful Hill top town of Cortona and of course exploring the surrounding vineyards, historic towns and cities, ceramics and UNESCO designated areas.

Outstanding villa in every way. Views to die for. Peace and quiet, stunning views, yet the beautiful town of Cortona minutes away. We can't recommend it enough although its a secret you almost want to keep to yourself, it's that perfect.

“Glorious”

people found this review helpful

We (my partner and I, and her intrepid parents) spent a glorious week in Villa Rosa. It is difficult to avoid superlatives. Cortona is an Italian delight, from its history to the many and often excellent restaurants. High above the valley, the town offers endless opportunities for walks and vistas, and is located in easy reach of Florence, Siena, Perugia and many other attractive centres.

The house is a renovated stone building, brought up to the highest modern standards, comprehensively equipped with all the equipment that one might need. It is immaculately presented in beautiful olive groves, with a delightful patio for outside dining, and, wonders of wonders, the deepest and coolest of pools, which makes it difficult sometimes to leave the house. It did not have wifi when we were there, but I understand that this is now available.

We had a wonderful time there, and cannot recommend it more highly.
