My husband, my sister and I stayed in Corte1 for five nights at the end of March 2015. The place was beautiful and very well maintained. The apartment was well equipped and the location, while somewhat remote, was easy to find and not far from the village of Castelfiorentino, where we were able to take a train to Florence and Siena. Alberto was a wonderful host and the dinner we had, made from local resources was delicious! Do not hesitate to stay here.

This location is an agricturismo.

Owners were always very helpful. Responded to every requests were made. Pool area is beautiful and very well maintained. Our apartment unit overlooked a beautiful valley. Although the location is very remote, it is only 15 minutes from town. We rented a 3 BD. 2 BA unit facing south and over-looking the valley. We recommend you participate in their pizza night. Silvanna and her sister hosted the evening. They allowed our grandchildren to help make their own crust and then watch the pizza bake in their wood fired oven. Best pizza we ever eat. They were wonderful hosts.

Wow this was such a beautiful place!! Yes the view does actually look like the photoes, even in late September.

The accommodation was comfortable and well-equipped,and very clean, and we had a lovely terrace with a table and chairs to look out across the view each day. The pool was .. magical.
Some reviews have mentioned the towels being of low quality. They may have replaced the towels as they were lovely and thick and soft!
It is true that you do need to bring toiletries with you eg soap, shampoo etc. There are also no basics in the kitchen eg oil/vinegar.

I have read another review saying that the hosts were quite absent. I also found this, as on the first morning we were able to pay 6 euros for a good breakfast, but then we couldn't find anyone to ask which days breakfast would be served for the rest of the 5-day stay. I have made the suggestion to the hosts that they include this information in their welcome pack. Otherwise the hosts were very friendly and welcoming.

We visited Castelfiorentino, the nearest town, on market day and found some delicious fruit and cheese and cold meats, all for a very reasonable price. Also some nice cafes with terraces for breakfast.

My one piece of advice is that it is essential to have a car for this accommodation, and to be prepared to drive on some steep narrow roads with hairpin bends!

Room Tip: Ask for Corte 3 or 2 for the view!

We were there in of the off-season (early October), which may have made our experience different. The apartment was nice, the view lovely, and the location good. (Hard to find --- a GPS is a big help!) We never saw the family at all except to be checked in and out by a young woman. That was disappointing, because we would have liked to interact with our hosts and talked about the surrounding sights, restaurants, etc. She did mention that they have a restaurant, but we never knew where it was or saw a menu. There was never anyone at "Reception" anytime we knocked. We had to text her to ask for hand soap and more toilet paper, and as another reviewer mentioned, the towels were as thin as dish towels. Other reviewers indicate that there is more interaction in the high season, so maybe the family is more involved then. Good value for the money, but disappointing in terms of getting to talk to people.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the apartments with a view, because some didn't have any.

We rented two appartments for 6 adults, for 4 nights.
The property is well maintained, including the nice yard and swimming pool.
We needed to go shopping for soaps (kitchen and bathroom), and the towels were of low quality.
Otherwise - a great place for a family vacation!

Room Tip: Corte #2 has the bed upstairs, while the bathroom is downstairs. Not so convenient for a mature couple.
