If like us you love the buzz of Cortona then this a great place to stay. The rooms are clean, with a modern Italian feel and the bed's are large and comfy which means you get a good night's sleep. The location is great as you are at the heart of Cortona and you can experience everything this town has to offer. Breakfast is provided at a cafe located 2 minutes down the street and is simple but adequate, usually comprising of a pastry, tea/coffee and fruit juice. The service is good both at the B&B and at the cafe with our hosts being very helpful and friendly. We asked to view their apartments on our last day, as had they been unoccupied earlier on our visit, Andreas would have let us stay in them for the remainder of our trip as they are ideal for longer visits. Again, they are nicely decorated and provide ample facilities for a longer stay. I am looking forward to staying in the apartments on our next visit.
I should mention that there is no parking within the town for visitors but the car parking is free and plentiful. We used the car park at the top of Via Dardano, outside the walls. There is a public outdoor swimming pool located at the other end of the park, along with a tennis club and football pitches. The facilities at the pool are great and it is very clean and friendly. Pick a hot day though for your visit as it is not heated.
The only minor problem being located in the centre of Cortona and with the rooms facing a main thoroughfare is that life starts early in the morning.....you may be woken a little too early. However, we still loved this B&B and we are planning to return soon.
