Homeowner attended college in Cortona and has been passionate about the Tuscan lifestyle and the environment the Cortona area provides.
We were a group of 6 senior adults seeking an exciting and yet relaxing Tuscany vacation, which we clearly found at Casa Sant' Angelo. The house and annex were clean, beautiful and very comfortable. We started our vacation with 2 days in Venice and drove to the Casa for a 7 day delightful stay. Danlieli's market was essential to our stay with good food, great wines, and 2 well prepared dinners ordered the day before and ready as we returned from our day trips. We enjoyed 3 day trips to Siena, Perugia, and Montalcino/Sant' Antimo. There was good food, fun shopping, history all around us, and inspiration at Sant' Antimo. The quiet days in Cartona and at the Casa were equally pleasing. We rate the Casa and the trip excellent and agree that next time we need to stay longer.
Casa San Angelo is awesome. We have traveled a lot throughout the years and this was truly one of our best vacations ever. The property was more then we expected and the surrounding areas a spectacle. We enjoyed Cortona as our home base and did the most amazing day trips we could have ever imagined. We traveled by car to Florence, Asissi, Siena , Chianti, Montepulciano and Montalcino. The food and wine in Cortona just a mile a way were exceptional. The nights we stayed in we ate from the market that was 2 minutes away that provided an amazing selection of local foods, cheese, pates, meats and home made pastas. A one of a kind experience. The weather was fantastic. Looking forward to going back.
The first word that comes to mind when dreaming about the Casa is MAGICAL. Surrounded by a sunflower farm and mountains yet groomed as beautifully as a hotel property, this amazing farmhouse and annex( we rented both) allowed our family the time of our lives.
The staff greeted us like family and set the tone for what warmth the Italian people display to others.
The property is immaculate and authentic with grape vines giving us breakfast shade, olive trees and a large pool cooling us off from day trips to Cortona, Tuscany, Assisi and Florence.
The serenity of the property made us want to stay home even though we knew the rest of the area was too majestic to miss. Each time we came home we just did not want to leave.
The rooms were clean, plenty large enough and cozy in every sense of the word. Our family dinners at home were made from the fresh ingredients from a local market just down the road. We also just bumped into the best restaurant in the world 2 miles away from the Villa. The town of Cortona is much more quaint than portrayed in the movie under the Tuscan Sun- you have to see it to believe it.
I have been fortunate to have travelled all over America and other parts of Italy as well- None compare to the amazing combination of peacefulness, beauty, coziness and charm as found at the Casa Sant' Angelo. As the owner advised us, the villa will be waiting for us to return. I cannot and do not want to get it out of my mind.
You cannot pick a better place. I am definitely going back.
Great space for a family with 3 comfortable bedrooms and beds. The air conditioned bedrooms were amazingly comfortable. Bathrooms clean along with the entire villa. Great kitchen(although no toaster/microwave) and dining area. Living room was the smallest room in the villa. New WiFi worked well, grounds were beautiful, the pool always clean and a stones throw from Cortona, one of the most charming villages in Tuscany. Down the road is Lunghini Market, great for most of your supplies and great meats,cheeses and some prepared meals. There is also a SuperMercato in Camucia, a 10 minute drive. Near great Tuscan and Umbrian villages as well as a short train ride to Florence.
See Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino,Siena, Orvieto, Deruta, Assisi, Lake Trasimeno etc.. If you need a cab, call Enzo who is a native of Cortona and full of information. A great place for a Tuscan/Umbrian adventure!!
I planned a family vacation for my birthday. Our group was comprised of my husband and 3 adult children with their spouses, significant other. We rented Casa Sant'Angelo for a week. The house exceeded our expectations. The house was spacious, well equipped and clean. There is a lovely market nearby which has everything that you could want. Cortona is close to many attractions in Italy. We took day trips to Siena, Assisi, Florence and Montepulciano.
We would all love to return.
I spent a lot of time searching for the right place (three kids and my parents) and fell upon this unbelievable gem. The pictures do not do it justice - it is even more beautiful from the moment you arrive. At 10 pm we were swimming in the pool the first night, under thousands of stars, and all you need to do is look up a bit and see amazing Cortona just above, lights and all.
The main house has been meticulously renovated and was great with our three kids. My parents loved the annesso - they had their own space - and also felt the renovation was excellent. There is plenty of space to run around and eating under the walnut tree with food bought from the amazing mercatto up the street or pastries from town was lots of fun. And of course the pool - hours of entertainment!
The house is near lots of great cities and Cortona itself is a great place to wander, eat and shop!
The owner is really great and was helpful through the whole process - her manager was very helpful and the house was perfectly cleaned when we got there.
I highly recommend and would return in a second!
