“Tuscan Paradise”
Reviewed 22 August 2013 for a stay in March 2013

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.

We stayed at Villa Rosa in June 2013 and loved it so much we didn't want to leave! The Villa has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday to experience the Tuscan lifestyle. The views are absolutely breathtaking, the grounds are beautiful and the pool area is just lovely. The Villa is in walking distance of the hill town, Cortona, and is well situated for day trips to many historical towns & cities including Florence, Bologna, Assisi, Sienna & Orvieto. We will definitely be going back to Villa Rosa and would thoroughly recommend this beautiful place to anyone who is looking to experience a Tuscan holiday!

Seeing the Tuscan sites while based in Cortona at Villa Rosa is indeed easy - whether you take a car or catch the train. That is what helps makes holidays enjoyable - the ease to get around. Thank you.
