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

I intend to return to the city and on the same property
simply fantastic the decoration of the apartment
I strongly recommend
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.
You'll know you're in Tuscany
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.
