The location is stunning - wide views across the valley, private and tranquil. A beautifully renovated stone house that is modern and comfortable on the inside and comes with a stunning pool and garden to relax in. Olive picking was a bonus as we stayed and were happy to help with the harvest. Delicious peppery oil - divine. What an experience - just magic. Will be back.

Location is important when you want to be near amenities but far enough away to enjoy the private and tranquil aspects of Tuscany. Thank you for your kind review and I hope we welcome you back soon.

“Wonderful Villa in a Perfect Location”
Reviewed 19 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had a relaxing and fabulous holiday staying at this villa. It is perched on a hillside with the most beautiful views of the valley and Lake Trasimeno day and night when the lights below and the stars are twinkling. The villa is in walking or driving distance to the city of Cortona, you can walk down the street and walk into Cortona through public gardens or up the hill to Santa Margherita and then down into the city through the tiny winding streets, either way is scenic. We really enjoyed Cortona, walking through the streets, enjoying the shops, museums, churches and all the restaurants. Not far up the street from the villa, is a little cafe up the street in Torreone for coffee and also a very good restaurant called i Grifi, we were most welcome at both.

We were fortunate to have warm sunny weather and we enjoyed lounging by the pool or relaxing in the hammock quite often. The grounds are lovely and very private, the villa is in an olive grove with rosemary and lavender plants around the property give off the nicest scent. We so enjoyed the pool and the grounds that some days we didn't venture out sightseeing.

The villa was well equipped and had everything a traveler would need including a clothes washer. The kitchen had all the necessities and we cooked in a few times. The bedrooms are very nice as well as the bathrooms and living areas. It's close to the road but not a busy road so there isn't much traffic. No TV but there is a stereo with CDs and good Wi Fi.

With a car and a GPS it was easy to travel around Tuscany and Umbria visiting the other hillside towns, there are so many places to visit. We also took a cooking class and visited two wineries. The owner Christine was very good about giving us directions to get to the villa and answering all of our questions. The caretaker was also on hand if needed. We would highly recommend this nice villa.

Sometimes it is hard to express how beautiful and delightful Cortona and Villa Rosa are and your words are a welcome expression how much our guests enjoy Villa Rosa. Thank you.

Spring is a wonderful time to visit, still cool in the evenings and the pool has yet to warm up, but still the magic of the Tuscan countryside is blossoming and bursting out all over the landscape. Bliss.
