About the owner: I rented many apartments and a villa in Italy before deciding to buy my own, so I understand what a renter would like to have...convenience, comfort and a villa that is well furnished like your own home. I strive to make our guests as comfortable as possible, and I know you will love our area.
Why the Owner Chose Cortona, Arezzo, Italy:
I visited Cortona many times before buying our villa there. The people are wonderful, the town as beautiful as the photos, and the food, ahhh, it doesn't get any better. The town is just the right size, and when you want something more, Florence is one hour by train, Rome only two hours.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
While staying at our villa, you will have a fully planted and maintained organic vegetable garden full of the seasons delights. We have air conditioning, high speed internet and a voice over ip telephone making calls to the USA and Canada free of charge. Our staff will look out for you and gently care for you and allow you to practice your Italian.
