Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We spent two exceptional weeks in the villa. Everything was completed: the decoration, the comfort, the swimming pool, the panorama and the hospitality of an exceptional family. We were like in a five-star hotel.

In conclusion, a real paradise in Tuscany.

We spent two weeks in this wonderful villa and our stay could not have been better. The house is newly renovated and lovely with big bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms, which makes it easier to for several families to stay there together. The pool area is stunning with great views over the Tuscan landscape.

The town of Cortona is just a five minute walk away from the house, and offers many great restaurants and small shops.

Our hosts, Silvia and Francesco were extremely helpful and accommodating, and made us feel very welcome. They helped us with everything we needed and were always very happy to do so. We can also highly recommend the cooking class hosted by Francesco, a great teacher who made all of us better cooks!

This is by far the best property we have stayed at in Tuscany and we wouldn’t even consider staying anywhere else when we return to Italy.

Simply wonderful. The views from this villa are breath taking. I have never in 30 years of independent traveling wanted to re visit a place but I would go back here in an instant. You relax as soon as you walk through the door. The villa is immaculate, Sylvia has thought of everything and her 5 star hotel training is evident. From a very generous welcome pack to towels for the pool and even locally produced olive oil shower gel to name but a few touches. We stayed in the Orangerie which is a small villa (not shown in current photos but I will try to add my own) with it's own pool. You can walk into Cortona in 5 minutes where you will find many amazing restaurants.

We recently stayed in the Orangery (Fonte Al Vento) in Cortona We found the accommodation excellent in every aspect, wonderful outside space with stunning views over the valley. The Orangery was very well equipped with every need catered for, we couldn't ask for more. The hosts Silvia and Francesco really made our stay memorable and wonderful in every way. Cortona is a wonderful historic city with lots of superb restaurants and places of interest.

The Villa was the perfect place to travel the Tuscany area from! Everything about The Villa was exceptional...views, comfort, accommodations, and hosts (Silvia & Francesco). It fit 6 of us very comfortably, and would fit 8 for sure. Each spacious bedroom has its own fully accommodated, attached bathroom. It is peaceful and quiet! Silvia was extremely responsive with the booking and all the planning up to the day of arrival. When she says she's "at your disposal", she means it! When she says she wants to make sure you have a memorable vacation, she means it! While staying at the Villa, you must have Francesco prepare a wine tasting dinner for you. We had one the night we arrived. Every course was spectacular, the wines they chose to pair were spot on! It was a fabulous way to begin our stay in Cortona! We'll be back...sooner rather than later.

If you are wanting a thoroughly modern villa with the aesthetics and craftsmanship of old look no further. The villa is situated 10 easy walking minutes outside the western wall of Cortona. Privacy is insured. The panoramic views over the valley are wonderful and the sunsets are glorious! The villa has 4 large and comfortable bedrooms, each with its own ensuite. The dining area is very spacious and bathed in light. The kitchen is modern and thoroughly complete. The interior layout offers opportunity for both gathering together or privacy depending on your mood. The infinity pool is a fabulous feature along with the outdoor patio and dining area given the summer warmth.

Silvia and Francesco are vibrant, warm and attentive managers/owners. They went out of their way to make our 2 week stay perfect. Francesco also prepared 2 multi-course dinners for parties of 5 and 7 and we can only say that the experiences, particularly the outdoor one, were sublime.

Cortona is an excellent Toscanna hilltop town with many fine shops and great restaurants. We especially recommend "I Grifi" where we dined 3 times. Also very good is "Preludio" and a third recommendation is "La Bucaccia" although the owner of the latter is a little quirky. Cortona is very well situated near the border of Toscanna and Umbria making many towns in both areas very readily accessible for 1/2 to full day trips. You can't miss with this property and its managers/owners!

My family and some friends recently stayed at this remarkable villa. It was truly an outstanding and memorable experience. The villa is brand new and impeccably decorated with spacious living areas and very comfortable bed rooms, all with modern bathrooms you'd find in a five star hotel. The outside areas have breathtaking, panoramic views with fabulous outdoor seating areas, tables and even a viewing area overlooking the gorgeous countryside. This is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for more modern accomodations in Tuscany but with all of the charm you'd expect at a Tuscan villa.

Perhaps the best part about the villa is it's close proximity to the town of Cortona which was my family's favorite city out of all the cities we visited in Italy. Cortona is filled with beautiful streets and quaint shops and restaurants. It is a special place that you have to experience for yourself. The people are as nice as can be and there is a lot to do in town to keep you busy. The area is hilly, so if you aren't fond of walking it may not be for you but you could always arrange for transportation to the town. The villa is located about a 10 minute walk from the city walls up a steep but gradual hill (and down on the way back) so there is no need to rent a car. We were also able to take day trips to Siena and Florence and return to the villa in the evening for dinner.

The owner and everyone associated with this property were the nicest people you could meet and were extremely helpful and accommodating throughout our entire stay. I highly recommend having the private meal they offer where you can help prepare and eat a traditional Tuscan meal and take a cooking class with a personal chef.

I would imagine that everyone who stays here, like us, will hope to return to this place one day.
