Why Cynthia chose Cortona
For those wanting to stay in Cortona proper, this townhouse is ideal: quiet location close to the main street of Cortona with some of the most amazing views the town has to offer. The apartment showcases an ancient well, walls of traditional-style plastering, original stone and hand made cotta, alcoves and
What makes this House unique
The magic of this townhouse is evident the second you walk through the door reception area and glance left up two steps into the perfectly restored sitting room with ancient well...you feel the age of this old city and the privilege of living among its walls if only for a short time. The dramatic circular shape of the staircase hides what lies above but the walls are so enchanting with their original stone and Tuscan colored hues, you tend not to hurry up. The sheer LIGHT that floods the kitchen and living are is astounding ...Cortona flats are rarely this bright and the views over the rooftops and valley will take your breathe away. Bedrooms above - large, comfortable, simple lend both rooms focus to more panoramic views and just when it can't get any better, going up the final flight to the panoramic roof terrace allows you to step out into this magic setting you've been gazing at admiringly and make it yours. If your stay is sunny, you'll have a hard time leaving that beautiful setting. An astonishing find in a Tuscan town center.

Charming apartment near city center
We truly loved our stay at the apartment. The location is great - close to the city center but quiet. The place itself is so charming with plenty of room.
Thank you, Manisha! I'm glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. And brought the lovely warm weather! Buon estate, Cynthia and Oliver
Such a comfortable and unique home....we plan on returning
Nathan, thank you so much. You're very kind. We're glad you enjoyed your stay in Cortona.

Cortona stay 2019
Oliver’s help with the luggage and information on the area was a great welcome to our stay. Property was exactly as described and in great condition. As others have written, be prepared for climbing stairs. But that is true of every location in Tuscany. We would return again and advise others to stay at this wonderful location
Thank you so much, Tom, have passed your kind words on to Oliver. We're so happy you enjoyed your stay!
Perfect stay in Cortona
Perfect location in Cortona. Very quiet neighborhood, but still very close walking distance to all the restaurants and historic square.
Thank you so much, Timothy. We're so happy you enjoyed your stay.
Warmly, Cynthia and Oliver
Lovely view from top terrace and living room
Property managers very helpful!! Apartment close to town center.
Beautiful and unusual, in the perfect location.
The apartment is on 3 floors with great views. Very comfortable and clean. Bedding was fine and the lack of a/c was a non issue for us in early June. It is situated in a quiet neighborhood making sleep blissful. The kitchen is compact but complete. Easy walk to great restaurants.
The property managers are delightful and helpful. Oliver is quite the perfect intro to Cortona. We highly recommend this rental.
Thank you so much for the very kind review. We're so happy that you enjoyed the townhouse and hope to see you again here in Cortona!
Warm Tuscan regards,
Cynthia and Oliver
Cortona is one of Tuscany's most charming towns and the townhouse is situated in the center of the village, only two blocks from the main shopping street, via Nazionale. The apartment is very quiet and peaceful as it borders on 2 pedestrian-only narrow lanes. After depositing your bags at the flat, there is parking nearby.
Cortona is strategically positioned, close to many of Tuscany and Umbria's major attractions., from the the stunning Crete Senese golden triangle of Siena-Montepulciano-Montalcino to Umbria's Perugia, Assisi, and Gubbio. It is also close to the north-south Italian motorway, the A1 and a major East-West motorway, and the Siena-Perugia highway.
