  • Perfect family stay

    "We had an absolutely wonderful time at Casa Helena. Our family of five, including three teenagers, stayed here for the better part of two weeks at the end of July / beginning of August. This was the first trip to Europe for the kids, and we left with a lifetime of memories. We had high expectations for the property, having heard of it from others who had stayed there. These were easily exceeded. Pre-arrival, we had received a detailed guide from the owner, which proved to be incredibly helpful throughout our stay. We were met in nearby Camucia by Stefania, who gave us a tour of the property (and greeted each of us with a very Italian two kisses on the cheek!). During the stay we made very good use of the newly remodeled kitchen and outdoor grill. Fresh vegetables and homemade olive oil and wine from the surrounding grounds complemented our dinners perfectly. Eating well is big for our family, and we couldn't have been more satisfied. We also made good use of the pool -- an excellent way to relax after exploring Cortona and other nearby towns. The views of Cortona from the backyard were absolutely gorgeous. The location of Casa Helena was likewise perfect. Morning walks up to the town of Cortona were pleasant. We also took day trips to Florence, Lake Tasiemeno (for wake boarding), Castiglione, Sienna, and nearby vineyards for wine tastings. All of these were easily reachable. As this was the kids' first trip, we also took an overnight trip to Rome -- also easily reached with a two hour drive. We did find that having a car was a good idea if you like to explore as we do. Our experience at Casa Helena was truly wonderful. We will definitely recommend it to friends."

  • Outstanding! What a lovely apartment - in a great town!

    "I have just recently finished renting this apartment - and it was absolutely wonderful! We found Il Roseto on VRBO and started to communicate with the owner. He was great - all emails were answered quickly, and questions were answered. The apartment was clean and ready for us when we arrived - with a bottle of wine and fresh fruit on the table to welcome us! That really was a nice extra touch. The apartment is a great place....all very comfortable - with three nice bedrooms and two great bathrooms. The owner also had the TV and Wifi working - which is great to have. The best part of the apartment, though, is the outside patio/garden! That truly made it ...sitting outside having coffee or drinks in the evening was so nice! Cortona is a great town to visit - and Il Roseto really is THE place to stay! Fernando, the owner, is very helpful and easy to contact if needed....and we loved our time at his place!"

  • George and Penny

    "A fantastic apartment right in the center of Cortona. We cooked a few meals (butcher and market were close by) but the Cortona restaurants were irresistible. We walked to most attractions in Cortona directly from the apartment - a little steep at times but an interim rest took care of that :-) During the week the overnight parking next to the wall outside Porta Colonia was no problem. The local contact, Marta, was most helpful. We recommend this apartment to anyone seeking a fantastic stay in Cortona and vicinity."

  • 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."
