  • Grazie, Grazie!!

    "My husband, I and two other couples just spent an amazing 5 days at Villa Stefania. Luigi and Stefania were great hosts. They made sure that we felt very welcome and had everything we needed for our stay. Stefania surprised us two mornings of our stay with delicious breakfast pastries. One evening we returned from dinner to find homemade tiramisu for our dessert. We were very spoiled!! The villa is clean and modernized, but still gave you the feeling of old world charm. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The washer was an added extra, so nice because we were traveling for an additional 8 days in Italy. The grounds are beautifully manicured with flowers, and have fig trees, olive trees, a grape vineyard and huge rosemary bushes. So gorgeous. The pool was beautiful, although the chilly weather prevented us from using it. We spent many peaceful mornings sitting outside at the Deruta table in the courtyard, drinking coffee and listening to the Bells of Cortona. We hope to return someday soon."

  • Idyllic! a spacious home-from-home in a beautiful Tuscan village!

    "There were four of us: two adults, a child and a teenager! and because of that particular configuration, the first thing I want to emphasise is the spaciousness! Molly's place is absolutely beautiful but also much bigger than the photographs lead one to believe. We were all immensely comfortable: the living room is big, has high ceilings and is superbly comfortable but so is the kitchen and so are the bedrooms and the bathroom and the extra toilet! The big old walls of days-gone-by mean that sound doesn't travel from room to room. It's all very tastefully done up as can be seen in the photos, there are loads of beautiful objects picked up on travel trips or from local antique dealers I suppose. If we could buy a place in Tuscany (not going to happen!) we both agreed that we'd look in Monte San Savino! Why? because it's no more than ten minutes to the autoroute which means that you can go to loads of places without spending half the day getting there: the beautiful Tuscan roads are of course to die for, but they can also making getting from A to B difficult. We went to Arezzo, Cartona, Pienza, Florence and Lucignano, but we were suprised to realise that we could also have gone to Siena, Orvieto and Perugia! as well as ramble around the Chianti... But the other reason for our enthusiasm was that Monte San Savino is a beautiful Tuscan village that hasn't been transformed into a museum town, the way Pienza has for instance. And it's calm also. Monte San Savino still has a life of its own with a friendly atmosphere, there are friendly locals chatting away in the cafés, and we met and chatted with the owner of one of the lovely local restaurants (Le Bindi) and also with the owner of the local café, etc. The temperatures while we were there were surprisingly low (10 to 23 degrees celcius), so we lit a wonderful fire in the living room, which had the children extactic of course! Although the heating was top notch also, as it heated up the living room in a few minutes... I can't sign off without mentioning the fantastically big and comfortable bed!!! It must be king size or extra king size or whatever! in any case, we ADORED it! And finally thank you Molly! for an absolutely WONDERFUL holiday: it couldn't have been better! We want to come again!!!! xx O It's true as Molly points out that the big old stone staircases which connect the downstairs to the upstairs are probably not suitable for people with reduced mobility... Others will ADORE however!!"

Cortona Travel Tips

Cortona Travel Captures Beauty and Wonder

Who has not dreamt of renting or owning Tuscany villas at one point in their life? Let that fantasy become a reality and start planning your Cortona travel today. With magnificent panoramic views, Cortona is a perfect vacation destination, whether you are hoping for a romantic getaway or a cultural expedition with the kids. In recent years, the town and surrounding areas have grown in popularity due to its appearance in two major motion pictures (“Life is Beautiful” and “Under the Tuscan Sun”) as well as its innate Italian beauty.

Touring near Any Cortona Accommodation

The town itself is very small so no matter which Cortona accommodation you have selected, your best bet is to explore the town on foot. In fact, if you plan on touring the town, please remember to wear comfortable shoes as these perfect Tuscany villas are tucked away among very steep and narrow streets. Be sure to include the Etruscan tombs and a visit to the Palazzo Comunale (the Town Hall), which was built in the 1400s, in your Cortona travel.

The Town Squares of Tuscany Villas

Part of the fun of staying in Tuscany villas is the easy access to quintessential town squares. Cortona travel is incomplete without visiting the piazzas, whether to buy some locally-made bread, see local art, or just to stop in a small café for a glass of wine. Do not miss visiting Piazza della Repubblica, Piazza Signorelli, and Piazza Garibaldi.

Cooking and Cortona Travel

If you love Italian food and cooking, this is the place to be! Be sure to book a Cortona accommodation with a fully equipped kitchen so that you can take advantage of some of the freshest foods in town (and some of the best wine on the planet)! If you can, schedule a cooking class which many hotels in the area offer. Learn how to recreate some of your favorite Tuscan dishes and prepare them with ease at home.
