Cortona, Province of Arezzo, Tuscany
A dream home just for you. We created our home in Cortona with all the essential mod cons. Music, kitchen, comfy beds, and of course with the essential pool and (Free) Wi-Fi. Villa Rosa is nestled into the Cortona (Tuscan) hillside with only a few minutes drive to the historic hill top town or you could also take a leisurely walk into vibrant Cortona. Couples love it, families love it. It is heaven. A two bedroom, two bathrooms, fully furnished beautiful private house for your Tuscan holiday.

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...
