Your holiday to Tuscany is special. You want a home that will provide you with the essential pool and of course the internet. You want to be close to the amenities but far enough away for privacy, seclusion and relaxation. We would love to welcome you to Villa Rosa which has all these features and much more. We have created a home that is (Free) Wi-Fi enabled -even by the cool and sparkling pool - and is a luxury private home nestled into the Tuscan hillside with expansive and stunning views across the valley.

A picturesque villa perched in the hills of Cortona with abundant sunshine, butterflies, wild lavender and rosemary, a large terrace for outdoor entertaining, and a refreshing swimming pool. Villa Rosa is exactly what your Tuscan dreams are made of. Absolutely wonderful!!

About the neighbourhood
Cortona is well serviced to make any holiday easy and enjoyable.

At Villa Rosa we provide a welcome pack with ideas of things to do and there is also an information centre in the heart of Cortona that will help pack your holiday with activities from cooking classes to wine tasting to golf courses.

The locals are welcoming and generous in their hospitality.
There are 5 supermarkets within a 10 minute drive, over 30 excellent restaurants in the City of Cortona which are well frequented by both...
