The space

**Make yourself at home in this charming top floor apartment in a typical old Tuscan stone house. The house is set in the Sodo's hamlet amidst the olive trees along a beautiful panoramic road leading to Cortona. Every room has its own bathroom. There is a fully equipped kitchen with electric induction stove (no gas, perfectly safe), oven, microwave oven, dishwasher, washing machine, for anyone who likes to cook while being on vacation. A cosy garden where you can enjoy relaxing dinners on a warm summer night or breakfast in the morning.

Guest access

One of our wonderful guests wrote about La Mansarda del Sodo: “The apartment - which feels more like a house - is spacious and very comfortable, with big (air-conditioned) bedrooms with beautiful views over the Tuscan countryside and a well-equipped kitchen. There's a very sweet garden with a great brick-built barbeque….The location is ideal - you drive up the hill to reach Cortona in a few minutes (or walk if you're feeling energetic!) - and you can also reach the surrounding vineyards and other hilltop towns with ease. It feels peaceful, but not remote, and provided us with a great base for exploring the local area”.

Interaction with guests

We always welcome our guests ourselves and my husband Paolo will be always there to provide assistance and any information needed.

The neighborhood

Our apartment is perfect to reach all main Tuscan and Umbrian sightseeings, just a few meters from the SS71 which connects Arezzo and E45 to reach the area of Perugia and Lake Trasimeno. It is not far from Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza and Perugia, just to quote a few ones. 400 meters from the house a restaurant, a local fruit and vegetable shop and a mini market.

Getting around

Ten minutes walk from the house or a few minutes drive you can get to a CLUB WITH SWIMMING POOL, BEACH VOLLEY, RESTAURANT and BAR.
The private car is the best way to get around here but we can pick you up at the station. From the apartment you can also walk around or take buses to go to Cortona and Arezzo.

The hosts were wonderful. We spent hours in the garden with them ,discussing both Italian and American issues, over several bottles of wine. Many walking trails, and Paolo even took us on a walking tour of the area,showing us the olive groves, and the nearby oil making process . Accommodations were just as depicted ,wth the garden area being special. Location was perfect,as Cortona is a lovely town, and all of Tuscany and Umbria were within an hour's drive.

Paulo did a great job making us feel welcome and offering us help on getting the most out of our stay, e.g. suggestions on places to visit etc. It is a strategic base for exploring Tuscany, with easy access to highways and rail transportation. Indoor kitchen facilities are basic.

Response from Daniela & Paolo:
Thank you Guy for your nice words. Sorry, but in the kitchen there are more than the basic facilities: microwave oven, electric oven, dishwasher, washing machine, blender, two coffee machines, an Italian one and an American one, pots, cutlery, two sets of knives, etc, etc. Italian people are very careful with the kitchen facilities. We love cooking and we love to make guests comfortable with the cooking. This is what other guests appreciated a lot
