  • A Treasure

    "We rented this Tuscan farmhouse for one month in the fall of 2012 and found it to be all we hoped for. The house is cozy with a modern bathroom , living room and bedroom on the main floor with a rustic kitchen, with all you need, opening onto the south facing veranda where we often had breakfast . The other bedrooms were in the downstairs walk out which we didn’t use. The view across the Chiana valley with the olive trees in the foreground is outstanding. The house and yard are totally private. The yard has one discovery after another with statues, flowers , olive trees, wine grapes, and pathways that lead you down to the stream running below the mill. The grapes could be picked off of the vines in the yard and were sweet and delicious. A great home base as we took the train to Rome for a few days as well as Florance and Venice. A car is a must. It takes about 15 minutes to get into Camucia and Cortona. It’s a short drive to many nearby hill towns and to LakeTasimeno . The owners were most helpful and have a caretaker living close by that would help with any problems. There were none. We felt right at home there and would stay there again.

  • Wonderful VIlla withing walking distance of Cortona

    "My wife and I and two other couples stayed in this beautifully restored farmhouse in April of 2013. Views of the countryside from the villa are amazing and walking into Cortona down the old Roman road was inspiring. We made pizzas and Florentine steaks in the brick oven and thouroughly enjoyed ourselves. This was our first visit to Italy, but definitely not our last."

  • Lovely Location and View!!

    "My sister and I stayed in this very comfortable and historic vacation home during the last week of March 2014. Flavia, Fausto and Anna (their daughter) are wonderful hosts, extremely helpful (we had a flat tire) and accommodating! The house itself boast of heated floors (ground level only), a spacious living area, very comfortable bedroom areas, well equipped kitchen, very nice bathrooms. My sister and I were on a rather extended vacation and decided before we ever made plans that we would NOT share a bedroom (or a bathroom, if we could help it). We knew we were going to be with each other for many days on end, and we figured that we'd like some "alone" time along the way. Most of our accommodations were hotel varieties and met our standards/needs... but this charming stop along the way was hard to leave! AND, we also had access to the family washing machine (Flavia gave us a key to use whenever we needed it). The location was ideal, giving us easy access to Cortona, Arezzo and many other villages. The owners made recommendations for restaurants that were spot on!!! Some of the best meals we had during our 5 country journey were right around the corner!"

  • Family Holiday

    "This villa was perfect for our Italian holiday with our daughter, son in law & 2 young grandchildren ages 2 & 4. Some days we toured the hilltop Tuscan villages together, other times the parents took in Florence museums while the grandparents looked after the kids and enjoyed the villa's huge pool. We loved to cook some of our meals at the villa & the owners were more than accommodating with anything we needed. This villa is located about a 15 minute drive from Cortona, an hour from Perugia or Florence but you do need a car! We highly recommend Casa Bel Posta!"

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.
