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."
