“Most wonderful Villa and facilities.”
Reviewed 19 September 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This is the second time we have stayed in Villa Rosa. We had our daughter and her husband with us and we stayed for 7 nights. Everything in the villa was to a very high standard including all the facilities.
The information pack was thorough and full of little bits about the Villa and Cortona.
We had a most wonderful time and would highly recommend Villas Rosa.

“Bliss...”
Reviewed 30 March 2017 for a stay in July 2015

We have visited Villa Rosa twice, and have had a wonderful time on both occasions. Set in olive groves under the walls of a Medici fortress, and a 20 minutes walk from the centre of Cortona and its piazzas and restaurants, it is an exceptional holiday destination. An old homestead, renovated to the highest standard, including wifi, it looks over hills and valleys towards Lake Trasimeno and the Chiana valley. Its pool is particularly inviting, deep and cool on hot summer days. Three hundred metres up the road is a charming bar, which will on request serve an evening meal on its terrace. The region includes Siena, Perugia, Assisi and Arezzo, with Florence within striking distance. I cannot but recommend Villa Rosa.

Thanks Sue, always a pleasure to see you again at Villa Rosa. As you say it is an ideal location (I would even say perfect!) for both Cortona and the wider Tuscan region.

“Ideal”
Reviewed 29 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Villa Rosa is a favourite destination where I have stayed a number of times and will keep going back. It is an ideal combination of rural idyll and urban convenience, being located a 5 minute drive or 20 minute scenic walk from the enchanting, historic walled town of Cortona, yet with a panoramic countryside view from its hillside spot.

Equipped and furnished to a very high standard and now with Wi-Fi for those unable to switch off, Villa Rosa provides an excellent base from which to explore the area - it is within striking distance of Arezzo, Florence, Siena and Perugia as well as the Montepulciano and Montalcino wine regions.

The owner provides a useful handbook giving details of the house but also ideas of places to visit, restaurants or bars to try or activities to be found nearby. Alternatively, you can just relax by the pool and unwind.

I would strongly recommend a visit - once you have been, you will want to return.

The location is stunning - wide views across the valley, private and tranquil. A beautifully renovated stone house that is modern and comfortable on the inside and comes with a stunning pool and garden to relax in. Olive picking was a bonus as we stayed and were happy to help with the harvest. Delicious peppery oil - divine. What an experience - just magic. Will be back.

Location is important when you want to be near amenities but far enough away to enjoy the private and tranquil aspects of Tuscany. Thank you for your kind review and I hope we welcome you back soon.
