Magical Montisole, near Cortona, Arezzo Province, Italy
"My family (daughter, son-in-law and granddaughters, ages 7 & 9) just returned from a truly magical week at Casa Montisole. The advert I read before I booked 6 months in advance didn't do it justice! It is an old stone and wood farmhouse with several levels, beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable, very clean and well-maintained. It really is a home away from home, with many amenities all of which were in perfect working order. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms modern with continuous hot water. The kitchen was well-fitted out with every conceivable (& expensive) piece of cookware necessary for a family of up to 8. The surrounding garden and further, the countryside, is etched in my mind forever! The pool was inviting and large enough for (non-Olympic) laps and is beautifully situated on the property. It comes with chaise lounges and umbrellas, as the sun is very strong. We particularly enjoyed going into Mercatale, (the nearest small village about a ten minute drive) for our morning breads from the local bakery. Also in Mercatale was "Mimmi's", a ristorante we visited twice as the food was family style (no menu) and absolutely the best pasta we had the two weeks we were in Italy...
Our daily excursions took us to Arezzo, Siena, Gubbio, Lago Trasimeno and Montepulchiano.
All were exciting adventures with lots of challenging driving. Every village and hill town was different and had plenty to offer tourists. I can honestly speak for my family when I say that we never had a bad meal anywhere in Italy, but especially in Tuscany and Umbria.
I would highly recommend Casa Montisole as the perfect vacation spot to bask in glorious
countryside and forget the problems of the world. It was an unforgettable holiday! Having just done my laundry, I'm ready to re-pack and return to that beautiful house."
