About owner/ property manager
We are a young couple (Samuele & Stefania) who want to make the stay of tourists as pleasant as possible, we like to make our guest feel at ease. Stefania has a pottery shop in the historic center of the city of Cortona "Pottery of Art by Patassini Stefania". She paints all the ceramics that are on display in her shop, performs custom works at the request of the customer and makes a 10 percent discount to the customers of our apartment. Stefania in addition to the store also thinks of the apartment that has been renovated and furnished with all its hand-painted ceramics.

Why owner/ property manager chose Cortona
The house was bought to go to live us, but then we decided to renovate the apartment to make it available to tourists who come to visit the city
What makes this Apartment unique
Our apartment is located completely on the ground, THERE ARE NO STAIRS , there is the possibility to get in front of the apartment with the car so you can unload the luggage without having to drag them throughout the city. The apartment is located within the walls of the historic center in a very convenient and quiet location, close to free parking and bus stop. Dentro is equipped with a kitchen made entirely by hand in rustic Tuscan style, inside there is a very beautiful exposed brick arch, there are wooden ceilings in the ceiling and the floor is in Tuscan terracotta. We have tried to furnish the apartment in perfect Tuscan style but at the same time we have provided all the comforts for a perfect romantic and quiet stay in the beautiful city of Cortona

Apartment Stefy was a typical Italian flat in Cortona. Close to shopping and restaurants. Cortona is built on a hill so not a flat town to navigate but very manageable. We loved our stay in Cortona and highlight of our holiday. If back to Italy, I would definitely visit here and stay at this property. It was clean, comfortable bed, great shower.
Thanks for your comment, I hope you come back to Cortona very soon, I am very happy to host you. Thank you for your kindness and thanks for leaving the house very clean.
our stay was wonderful
the owner very friendly and helpful
we were very catered
I intend to return to the city and on the same property
simply fantastic the decoration of the apartment
I strongly recommend
Perfect cozy apartment for couples
The apartment is very cozy and clean. It is located in a nice, quiet area just a short distance to wonderful restaurants and shops. The apartment has everything you need and is decorated in a charming manner with wonderful ceramic pieces made by Stefania herself. The apartment has been updated with modern mechanicals while retaining the original structure. We were warmly greeted by Stefania who graciously offered to pick us up from the train station in the neighboring town. Everything about our stay at Appartamento Stefy was wonderful and we plan to return soon.
Thank you very much for your review, I hope I will be happy to host you the next time you come back. Thanks, see you soon
Very lovely clean a great decoration. Really comfortable bed. The appartment is in ideal location
The appatment is right in the centre of things and there was so much going on in June live music nearly every night. The owners are so very helpful and Cortona is fantastic. Even tho it was hot outside the appartment was cool and not to hot to sleep.
Perfect location, perfect accommodations, and perfect hosts. The apartment was sparkling clean.
We found our stay in "Apartment Stefy" the best possible way to enjoy Cortona and surroundings. The apartment was suited just right for our stay.
Most of all the owners Samuele e Stefania are most gracious, kind, and caring.
We will definitely stay there again when we return to Cortona.
The perfect location to visit Tuscany hillside towns.
We stayed in Cortona four nights and made visits to Assisi, Orvietto and Siena. We enjoyed coming back to Cortona each night for dinner. Even though we did not eat in the apartment, it had everything you would need if you wanted to. We also visited Volterra, San Gimignamo and Florence after leaving Cortona and can say we were pleased that we selected Cortona for our central location. It was a wonderful way to see Tuscany.
