We will wait for our guests at the arrival to support for everything they will need and to show the Villa letting them enjoy it as their own house. Our guests will meet all our Family and all of us has something special to share, our garden's vegetables, the best typical cuisine recipes and local wine tips.

Why Baldoni Davide chose Cortona
My family and I wanted to start up this simple but unique business to share with people the product of our hard work. All details are chosen to fulfil the perfect Italian family dream holiday.

So what's really important....
Excellent villa; superb scenery and fabulous ambiance; only exceeded by a family host who's pride of ownership of an outstanding property is undeniable
If you are seeking a beautiful place with exquisite hosts look no further. Davide and Chiara are very helpful and you never feel you are intruding on them for anything you need. Although is was an exceptionally rainy and overcast time for at least 4 days you do not want to miss out on trips to other towns. Florence was exceptional.
Davide is one of the sole reasons you need to stay here!
His suggestions for all of the above were spot on. The nearest town Cortona is beautiful with great restaurants, great shopping, etc. Montepulciano was actually our favorite where we bought unusual artwork. The town was simply perfect.
Be sure you have the most comfortable shoes for extended and "hilly' walking . If there is difficulty with this BE SURE you have alternative means to transport those who will be challenged.
Lastly- Italy is magical- beautiful- delicious- friendly and even inspirational regardless of the weather.
And most importantly a family that will make you feel like it is your home. A real tribute to truly wonderful people.

A Week of Unforgetable Charm
Borgo Valdecchi is the ultimate Tuscany experience. The remodeled villa was engineered to modern expectations but retained the charm of the unique area of Italy.
Views from the extraordinary Tuscan hillside are fantastic. Every bedroom in the house has breathtaking scenery just steps from your bed. Davide, Lorenzo, Sara, Chiara and family are warm and friendly hosts. The Baldoni family was gracious, generous, and informative about their culture. I hope they have many children in the future. The world needs more like them.
There is a washer and dryer on premises, and ancient lemon trees in huge terra-cotta pots decorate the terrace. There is a swimming pool for your use should you stay during the warmer months. The bathroom décor is in the Tuscan style with great water pressure in the showers. For those interested in wine, Davide is an expert host for a variety of interesting wine tours and is a trained sommelier. All in all, an unforgettable experience. We hope we will have an opportunity to return soon.

It was a real treat to get away from fast-paced life and stay in the Baldoni's peaceful estate. The facilities are modern and up to date within centuries old charming structures. The private drive and valley is secluded and bucolic. We felt so grounded by Baldoni family's solid, self-sufficient life and strong family values. My husband particularly enjoyed talking with Davide and Lorenzo over extensive topics! We will definitely come back and next time with more extended family! Love from Tokyo.
Our stay at this amazing villa was the trip of a lifetime!
Where is the button to leave a 10 star review? VRBO needs to add one for this beautiful property! We can't say enough about this wonderful villa and the incredible owners who were so welcoming to us when we visited Italy in January 2019. Visiting a country where you don't know the language doesn't have to be a problem when you have hosts like these to help out with any questions or needs you may have. They invited us to their home for a delicious dinner and were happy to share everything about Italy and the Cortona area. But beyond that, Davide is a Sommelier, very knowledgable about wine. He set up wine tours for us, helped us rent a vehicle and he even drove us to the wineries (this is for an additional fee of course, but very reasonable and well worth it!). We plan to return for another visit to the villa (with more friends the next time!!!)
This villa and it's owners are amazing. The location is wonderful.
Davide and his family made our vacation at their villa unforgettable. The villa is beautiful, comfortable and well maintained. The family makes you feel very welcomed and are available at any time for questions. It was harvest time for their olive trees and we were treated to an amazing dinner of fresh pressed olive oil treats, homemade wine and sausages that Papa made. Some days all we wanted to do was sit outside on the patio and look at the stunning Tuscan hills. We made trips to Cortona, Assisi, and little towns and a lake nearby. There were several grocery stores near where we purchased fresh cheeses and vegetables for the dinners made at the villa.
All of the beds were so comfortable. Each bedroom had its own full bathroom.
The rooms are tastefully decorated and the bathrooms look like they have just been modernized, clean and sleek.
Better than pictured!
My husband and I spent a week in Oct at This lovely Villa. The Villa was everything we had imagined. The views from every window were better than expected. We spent a lot of time in the outdoor living space and loved our Visit. The Family has a garden and fruit trees they share with the guests. I had fresh veggies and grapes right from the front yard.
While the Villa was amazing, The Baldoni family were an absolute delight. They invited us to their home for dinner one evening. Sara and Chiara cooked a fabulous pasta while Lorenzo grilled steaks on the BBQ. The traditional Tuscan meal was enjoyed by everyone. Lorenzo shared his homemade wine and Olive oil. They were both some of my favorites from our trip. The family is so welcoming and warm.
Davide was a kind host and Sommelier who taught us so much about Tuscan wine and tasting. We enjoyed a private wine tasting at the Villa. He had great recommendations for restaurants and Wine shops. You could text him or Chiara for any question or need and they would give the best advice.
There are so many gems within a short driving distance to discover. We visited Cortona for shopping, wine, and meals. We went to the local street market in Camucia. The Vannelli Family Bakery was a fantastic find. They are award winning pastry and coffee makers. Their Chocolates are heavenly.
There is a Simply market just a few minuets from the Villa in Pergo. You can stock up on groceries for the week. There is also a great pizza shop there where we ordered a pizza to go.
My husband and I would highly recommend the Borgo Vallecchie for your Tuscan Vacation. The opportunities for discovery are endless.
The villa is minutes from the town of Cortona and is within walking distance or biking proximity to other gorgeous small villages. Florence is a comfortable hour away, Rome just over two hours. Siena is 40 minutes away. Towns such as Montalcino, Arezzo, Pienza, Montepulciano, Perugia, Assisi and other chianti areas can be reached easily by car or train . White-sand tuscan beaches of the Maremma or fishing villages of the Cinque Terra are 2 hours away.
Airport transfer service and rental car assistance may be arranged. There is a local bus network to nearby villages and Cortona.
