The remodelled historic house is the perfect spot to relax and unwind. Open plan living areas with an amazing outlook over the Tuscan countryside. The close proximity to town and historic sites is a bonus. A perfect spot to launch your discovery of Cortona. I hope to return one day.

“Absolutely divine...”
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.

We just returned from a week staying at amazing Villa Rosa. This property is impeccably maintained and has beautiful garden terraces with stunning vista views. My husband and I were traveling with our teenage son who also loved the property, especially his frequent dips in the pool. We have travelled all around the world and this place will hold a special place in our hearts and memories. If you are contemplating a Tuscan visit, don't hesitate to stay at Villa Rosa. We can't wait to come back!
