Part of me doesn't want to review Cynthia & David's apartment so I can keep it a secret and have it all to myself. That's how amazing my experience was renting it. The location itself is so spectacularly beautiful that I couldn't stop taking pictures of the view. It's remote enough to feel secluded in the countryside while still being 30-60 minutes from Cortona, Montepulciano, Orvieto, Siena and basically every other hilltown we wanted to visit. The apartment was, hands-down, the most beautiful vacation apartment I have ever rented. It is larger than it appears in the photos with two big bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Both had rainfall shower heads, one with a beautiful soaking tub that I had to take advantage of. I really wanted to use the large fireplace but the weather was too warm so we spent all of our time either relaxing out on the private terrace or in the well-equipped kitchen cooking the fresh, local foods we bought during the day. Last but definitely not least, Cynthia was an amazing host. She was so fun to talk to, ready to give restaurant recommendations and incredibly knowledgable about the area while also being very conscientious about giving us our private space. The day I left their apartment, I started planning when I could next return. Do not miss staying here.
