After enjoying our condo for 17 years my family and I, in the Summer of 2010, we decided to rent our condo and share its magic with our guests. A few comments from previous guests:

'Waking up in the morning or at sunset and watch the sun all over Cortona's roof-tops...'

' Location. Location. Location'

' Nice to be in center of town with all its amenities.'

'We had an unforgettable experience!'

' It was a wonderful beginning to our vacation in Italy. We were very comfortable and loved staying in the heart of the town. We traveled around to Arezzo, Montepulciano, Pienza and were always happy to come home to Cortona.'

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1993

                  About the owner: I am a university professor very interested in the arts. I was born in Torino; however, years ago I chose Cortona as the city in Italy where my family and I would go to recharge ourselves during our vacations. In fact,a few years ago my daughter from the USA celebrated her wedding in Cortona. Our charming roof-top condo in Cortona is a very special place; it will make your vacation truly unique!

                  Why the Owner Chose Cortona:
                  Cortona is an art-city, known for its Etruscan and Renaissance history and culture in its architecture, paintings and museums that bring back to us the flavor and the beauty of various, rich cultures..

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  In 2010 we decided to rent our condo in Cortona. A quiet roof-top condo at the second & third floor of an historical building in the heart of Cortona, close to restaurants, museums and other amenities. Its serene charm appeals to the artist in all of us and somehow brings us closer to the true lifestyle of the Cortonese people who inhabit the town. A remarkable experience, not to be missed!
