Wonderful VIlla withing walking distance of Cortona

  • 5 of 5

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.
