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.

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 5 of 5

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.

You'll know you're in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

A perfect Tuscan experience. The apartment was charming and characteristic of the region with beamed ceilings, hand-painted tiles, climbing roses at the doorway and gorgeous views from the city wall a few steps away. It was flawlessly clean and very quiet. Stefy and Samuele thoughtfully provided everything we needed: plenty of towels, extra pillows, kitchen equipment, a clothes washer with detergent, easy instructions and even a drying rack. The shower was great, having abundant hot water and a large shower stall. Sometimes I have back trouble, but the mattress was very comfortable, had no problems at all. But best of all was Stefy and Samuele's warmth, generosity with their time and information. From our first emails to the last, they always responded quickly and gave great advice on where to eat and travel details. We also enjoyed Stefy's shop and meeting and talking with her mother, Giovanna. They all made us feel like more than tourists....they made us feel at home.

True Tuscan Experience

  • 5 of 5

Want to feel at home in Tuscany? Here is where you want to stay!!

Located almost exactly in the centre of Italy, this apartment in Cortona (within the walls of the old town), gives you a perfect base to visit all the wonderful Tuscan spots. Steeped in Etruscan history Cortona is wonderful, and was well chosen by the author of "Under the Tuscan sun".

The apartment itself represents extremely well the style, ambience and attention to fine details, of a Tuscan experience, with its tiled floors, beamed ceilings, and Stefania's ( the gracious proprietor along with her partner Samuele) delicate touches in decor, including her hand painted ceramics( also sold in her boutique).imagine a Tuscan home, and this it it and more! If you have a car, as we did, there is public free parking just outside the walls, and a very short walk to the apartment

What really makes the experience wonderful is the warmth and generosity that Stefania and Samuele offer. From helping us locate and move in to advising where to go and what to do.

We were there for a month,and left feeling we were leaving family behind.

Can't wait to go back, and w ould highly recommend, this beautiful apartment

Fabulous smaller apartment to enjoy the Tuscan hillside town of Cortona!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a place to explore the Tuscan countryside and have a place to come back to each evening for a good dinner and to relax. This is the place!!! Very safe, clean, and updated apartment inside the walls of the town, free parking just below the apt but outside the gates, kitchen sparse but good oven with enough utensils to cook with and good refrigerator, very comfy king size bed with curtains that block off the bedroom from the rest of the studio, we did not use the pullout couch but would be appropriate for another person or several smaller children, the owners Stefanie and Samuele were very responsive to our needs, took us to our apt and explained all we needed to know about our stay in this beautiful little town
