Loved this house in the Cortona area of Tuscany. Beautiful hillside location overlooking olive trees and the valley below. Stunning pool (which was cleaned every morning) and sun deck was perfect in the afternoon for lazing around and gazing out over the view. Multiple bedrooms and bathrooms ensured our group of four had ample space. Perfect location for taking day trips to nearby towns and vineyards which we did. Luca, the owner met us there and showed us around and was a phone call away if we ever needed anything. Our favorite thing was to take a glass of wine or two onto the deck and watch the sun setting over the hills and valley. Gorgeous. Thanks Luca for a wonderful stay!
Beautiful views, great pool and lots of space in the villa. Host is easily contactable if you have any problems (not that we did).
The house is situated between the cities of Cortona and Castiglion Fiorentino, and was easy to find by car. (We used google maps) We visited Cortona which was a beautyfull little hillside town, took the train to Firenze for a daytrip, and visited a local vinyard only 10 minutes from the house. There are a number of shops in Castiglion Fiorentino, and we were able to find what we needed there. We also travelled to the outlet shopping centre in Valdichiana - great icecream!
The houses was spacious with enough room for our two families, and the pool was wonderful. We spent many hours swimming and relaxing in the sun. The only negative thing about the house is that the AC = fans, and there were no basic inventory in the kitchen (salt, sugar, dishwashersoap, kitchentowles, ovenmittens etc) We had a wonderful stay, and really liked the area and the house.
This was our (two families) second time in this wonderful, traditional italian house. We just love it and its magnificent swimming pool and huge garden. Owner is also very kind and helpful, whenever we needed help.
Perfect place for those who need a peaceful and relaxing holiday. However the house is close to lovely cities like Cortona, Arezzo and Florence.
The house was magical, charming gardens, pool and beautiful scenery. The rooms were comfortable, but two of the three bathrooms are small.
This house is a good starting point for excursion to Tuscany.
If you are looking for a hidden place, where none disturbs you, you should choose Casolare Il Condottiero! The owner is very kind and helps you to organize your free time and gives advice where to go and what to do. You can visit Florence, San Gimignano, Siena, Montepluciano and Cortona easily, by car or by train as well. The house has an authentic spirit with the inside furnitures. The view is beautiful, as it was built on the hillside. The garden is huge with pool and BBQ area. We took our dogs with us and they enjoyed the big field as well. I can recommend for those who are looking for a farmhouse with big surface in a tranquil environment and would like to explore the southern part of Tuscany.
The house is quite big but very charming - situated peacefully between a lot of olive trees, with an exelent swimmingpool area, a beautiful view and a large totally fenced site. Perfect for a peacefull holliday and not far from Castiglion Fiorentino with several good restaurants etc.
