“Perfect home, perfect location & perfect hosts !”
Reviewed 14 March 2013 for a stay in October 2012

Thank you for your wonderful hospitality and allowing us to stay in your charming townhouse in Cortona. It had all the amenities we could have hoped for and more, and the terrace garden was perfect for coffee or a glass of wine. The location is just perfect. Easy walking to all cafes, restaurants, bars and shops yet tucked away from the hustle/bustle. We made many new friends (including Massimo and Sebastian) as a result of your personal introductions. We hope to return to Cortona one day and our first call will be to you both. Thanks so much for helping to make our holiday so enjoyable and memorable

“Outstanding Quality and Attention to Detail Makes This Townhouse a Jewel”
Reviewed 11 March 2013 for a stay in October 2012

We stayed at this lovely townhouse in Cortona for three weeks. The location is absolutely perfect -- right off the main (and only level) street in the city -- convenient to all restaurants and shops. The owners, Andrew and Kate, met us on arrival, helped with our luggage, took us for a short tour of the town, made restaurant reservations for us and promised to check on us periodically, which they did. They were helpful and gracious hosts and genuinely nice people. The house was immaculate, well-appointed with lovely English antiques and the attention to detail was superior. Our family has rented vacation homes for many years in Italy, Australia, Hawaii, Mexico, Costa Rica and all over the United States and this one ranks among the best. I highly recommend this property.

“Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed 8 March 2013 for a stay in May 2012

Kate and Andrew were the perfect hosts. They helped us in our planning, met us in Cortona upon arrival, joined us for lunch and showed us around town. The house was perfect, two bedrooms were extremely comfortable, the kitchen was well appointed to meet our needs, and the location couldn't have been better. We were right in the middle of town close to shops, restaurants, and everything one would need. We would highly recommend this house, and Kate and Andrew made us feel like this wasn't a typical house rental but our home for a week. We look forward to returning at some point, as Cortona is beautiful and near the best of Tuscany.
