Wonderful Views of Tuscan Countryside
Great place to stay to explore Cortona and the rest of Tuscany. Terrace is wonderful place to relax with wine and unwind after a day driving the country roads. It is a 15 minute walk straight uphill to the lovely main piazza in Cortona. There were some initial problems with the hot water and the gas was turned off to the stove but Roberto fixed that when we told him about it.
Beautifully situated and appointed property.
This property is beautifully furnished and decorated. It is very comfortable. The lovely terrace was our favourite place to sit at any time of day. We loved being able to walk into the charming and historic town of Cortona where there are many restaurants as well as places to sit outside, people watch and enjoy a coffee or spritz. The atmosphere in Cortona is so friendly for any age group. Italy doesn't seem to have the same generational divide that we do in Britain. We loved watching people of all ages dance together in the piazza while a live band played. Be aware, steep walk into and around Cortona, but worth it.
Easy driving access to Sienna and Arezzo. We particularly liked he main piazza in Arezzo.
Perfectly comfortable property --fantastic views and amenities an easy walk to the heart of the
Lovely living space with easy walk to Cortona, a charming Tuscan walled town with vibrant charm, superb restaurants and pleasant hosts. Cortona is a greatly base from which to explore towns like Siena, Orvieto, Assisi, and the wine country to the west. The beauty of the region made it a place to simply hang out and enjoy the view of the valley below and lake to the south. Rebecca and Roberto Ghezzi were very gracious and helpful; the original artwork of Pat Moss (Rebecca's mother) added to the charm of the comfortable and well appointed furnishings. We couldn't have chosen better for our first trip to the heart of Italy.
We love it!!
Roberto, Rebecca and Sofia are WONDERFUL people, the apartment and accommodations were beyond our expectations even as the photos are totally reflective of it. They made our vacation there the best we've ever had. Molto grazie Roberto!!!
What a fantastic place. Roberto and Rebecca are the perfect hosts. The location for exploring the region is great. The apartment has a wonderful kitchen, spacious living quarters and almost panoramic views. We were a family of three and had plenty of room.
This is one of our very favorite places to stay when traveling. We'll be back.
A dream in Tuscany
Wow, were we impressed???? You always wonder when you book through VRBO, but this apartment was everything, and more, than what we expected. My wife and I spent a full week at "Belvedere". It was incredible in location, size, setting, and furnishings! We had arrived from Florence in a rental car and explored many hill-top towns in Tuscany throughout the week. Roberto and Rebecca were very helpful when needed, but we felt like we had our own home (even made friends with Cookie, the cat). The beds were comfortable, the kitchen well-stocked and functional, the bathroom very modern and nice tub, and we could have stayed an entire month (or more). We usually walked into Cortona as it was closer to walk than to drive and park in the central parking lot. Day trips included Siena, Pienza, and a drive around a large lake to the southeast. I can't wait to return to Belvedere for at least another week (hear "month".....). I would recommend this apartment to all of my friends and relatives.
