“Words cannot express how much we loved staying at Apartment Stefy.”
Reviewed 29 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The apartment was as spotlessly clean and well put together as any place we have stayed. Everything was of very good quality and everything worked which is not easy to find in a rental. At first, I thought it might be small, but it was well designed (recently) and the living area lived larger than its sq. footage. Last but not least, Stefania and Samuele did everything to make our stay a beautiful experience. After two weeks, it was difficult to leave, but we look forward to another visit in the future. Thank you Stefy and Samuele.

“Favorite place we stayed”

My friend and I were visiting my friends daughter attending school in Cortona, this apartment was PERFECT. It is the best location and the pictures don't show the true beauty of the apartment. Having the pull out couch made it a two bedroom which worked out great for us.
We had 8 of the kids in her class come over for dinner and it worked out great cooking in the kitchen, it was fully furnished. There are some great steps In a courtyard just outside that we all sat on to eat.
It was very hot but we had a fan and felt very safe with the windows open with a great breeze.

I have traveled italy but is my favorite place and so look forward to returning with my husband.
It is so easy to travel by train, no need to rent a car. There are a couple great places to pick up food if you want to cook and of course great restaurants.
We were able to pick up some amazing gifts at the store that Stef made, she has a true talent so make sure you stop in there.
She has some hand painted aprons that make great gifts.
They made sure we made it from the train station to the apartment when we arrived, that made our trip much easier and relieved all stress of us finding the apartment.
I highly recommend this location, they are great host. Make sure you check out the dish drying rack over the sink, I want this in my kitchen.
Many thanks to them.

Aside from the fact that Stefania and Samuele the most delightful hosts one could ask for, the apartment is wonderful! It was extremely clean and fresh, and had all the essential amenities to enjoy "la dolce vita" in Cortona. Every detail is enchanting and tells a story! Additionally, it's in the perfect location for a leisurely stroll around the city's boundaries or a trip to its center. We would love to come back again for another comfortable, relaxing, and peaceful vacation!

“Great quiet but convenient Cortona hide away.”
Reviewed 21 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I like simple with luxurious touches. This is what I found at Stefy's and Sam's apartment. I have stayed in a number of apartments in Cortona and although they were all very nice, they were noisy. Stefy's apartment is off the beaten track, which means a 2-minute vs 30-second walk to the main square and most restaurants and shops, but that was all it took! This apartment is in a mainly residential area of Cortona near the wall, so tourist traffic is at a minimum, and you feel as if you have privacy. Plus, the bed is great, the shower was perfect with big luxurious towels, and, again, it was QUIET! The kitchen was fine, but since I ate out, it was not a concern. Stefy and Sam are very pleasant and accessible people. Finally, I found out about the apartment while talking with Stefy last year at her ceramics shop, a MUST SEE! Stefy is a very talented artist and I have bought items from her shop each year now for 4 years!

“CHARMING, COZY ,CLEAN , CENTRAL IN CORTONA”
Reviewed 5 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We enjoyed very much our short stay at Appartamento Stefy in Cortona. The apartment is truly charming , cozy, clean and centrally located. What we truly appreciated is the profound courtesy and kindness of the owners, a young couple ,Stefania and Samuele. Stefania, a ceramic artist running her shop in Cortona, really put her enthusiasm in decorating all the majolica works within the apartment.
