“We'll be back soon...don't hesitate!”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The week at this lovely rental in Tuscany was the best place we stayed on our entire one month vacation in Italy. The rental is perfect - it couldn't be lovelier - from the amazing doors that make your whole house open-air (with mosquito screens) to the fully stocked and lovely kitchen. We love the layout and decided to bring our teenage daughter next time because the place is quite spacious. There is a nice, large bedroom, bath with shower and dining/living room with a futon. Everything is spotless and painted in bright, Tuscan colors. You'll even find a washer (no dryer, this is Italy!) - which was perfect for us as we had been travelling for weeks. (There are other apartments at this property as well - I would email the owners if you are looking for more than 1 rental. They all open to a terrace with a big dinning table - it would be perfect for a few families travelling together). You'll find everything you need a quick walk into town. The rental is located just across the street from the lowest gate through the town walls. Such a quick entrance into town. It is a few minutes walk to the main piazza and to EVERYTHING. We rented a car (parking is in a lot just across the street and free) but only used it a few days because Cortona is so perfect. Coffee in the piazza, then a hike up to a church to explore, stopping at the market for goodies to cook for lunch, a siesta and then back into town for a stroll and a gelato. This is a hill town so be prepared for a fairly steep walk up into town. It isn't a long walk but it is uphill (as are all the hill towns). It is a great home base location to take day trips from as well. If the location and the property weren't enough - the people who own this rental are lovely. Some of the nicest people we've met. The transaction was very easy. We emailed to VRBO and were able to put a deposit down quickly. Vanna will even do a cooking class in your apartment if you would like! We are looking at our calendars now to decide when to go back for a month (but this time just to this rental)!

Liked best: The entire rental was perfect
Liked least: The small road to cross into town is narrow when there is traffic - but not a big deal.

“FABULOUS”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This place was all that you could dream about!! Starting with working with Mirko and his mother Vanna was so easy and nice planning our first trip to Cortona. They had a bottle of wine waiting in our apartment which was wonderful after a long flight . Vanna was there to greet us and show us around. The view out the windows are breathtaking, just like a picture! They also had a great coffee machine, blow dryer, washer to do laundry mid week, it was so clean and wonderful! We also did the cooking lesson with Vanna , which I highly recommend, great food and fellowship! She does a good job with her english and you learn so much! We hated to leave but hope to go back again.

“A truely perfect Cortona villa”
Reviewed 18 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We had a terrific stay in this Cortona apartment. The property owners, Franko and Vanna, were such lovely people and went above and beyond my expectations from a property owner. The apartment was clean, very well decorated, cheery, and fresh. Our patio was beautiful and private. The apartment is only a few minute walk from the heart of Cortona, yet is very private. I would recommend this apartment to anyone wishing for a true Italian experience.

Liked best: Please note that the wi-fi didn't work anywhere in Cortona... we went to a bakery where they supposedly had good access and after half-an-hour... gave up. (My husband is a Network Engineer so he knows his way around this)
Liked least: There wasn't anything we didn't like.
