Wonderful! That's the best word to describe our stay in Daniela's lovely cottage in Cortona. We were surprised how spacious the apartment was and how well appointed. There was everything and more! Many lovely little touches (like delicious welcome Lindt chocolates in a little dish on the kitchen table) and the furnishings suited perfectly the lovely old feel of the apartment. The hosts have put a lot of thought and work into this apartment and one could not but feel welcomed and well looked after. My daughter Elena wished she could air lift this apartment in order to have it on our hometown, she liked it so much! And the view from the little old windows over the sunflower fields was breathtaking. Cortona is a very interesting ancient town and there are many other wonderful little towns within easy reach from Daniela's apartment. It really is located in an ideal location from which to explore this beautiful area. Meeting Daniela and her husband Paolo added to the pleasure of our stay here, they are the loveliest couple: I could have stayed and chatted to them for a long time. Grazie Daniela, spero proprio che un giorno ci rivedremo! Un caro saluto! Sara

I had the most wonderful time in Cortona. I had never seen this part of Tuscany and was truly amazed by the fairtytale view that met me when we drove from the station through the cute little Cortona center, and down the hills to the beautiful house of Daniela and Paolo. The house is exactly as described, clean, authentic and just gorgous in every way. Felt like a princess in that bed! Paolo lent me a bike so I could easily get to everywhere I wanted, like to the supermarket, the local swimming pool or to the train station to go visit other beautiful cities nearby, like Arezzo, Modena, Perugia and Florence. From the house and up to Cortona center there's a lovelt walk. Daniela and Paolo are the nicest hosts you can immagine. Thank you. Ho trascorso una settimana meravigliosa a Cortona. Non avevo mai visto questa parte della Toscana e sono rimasta veramente stupita dalla vista fiabesca uscendo dalla stazione e andando sú in macchina attraversando il carino centro di Cortona, e poi giù per le colline alla casa di Daniela e Paolo. La casa è esattamente come descritto, pulita, autentica e bellissima. Il letto é da principessa! Paolo mi ha prestato una bicicletta così ho potuto facilmente andare ovunque volevo, come al supermercato, alla piscina locale o alla stazione ferroviaria per andare a visitare altre bellissime città vicine, come Arezzo, Modena, Perugia e Firenze. Dalla casa al centro di Cortona c'e' un passaggio molto bello. Daniela e Paolo sono i più simpatici hosts che si possono immaginare. Grazie.

Gospodarze bardzo mili, uprzejmi, chętni do udzielania pomocy (porady dotyczące dojazdów do intresujących miejsc, zasad funkcjonowania urządzeń domowych, praktyczne wskazówki odnośnie zakupów). Gospodarze dla swoich gości przygotowali książkę z najważniejszymi informacjami dotyczącymi obiektów do zwiedzania, komunikacj miejskiej, wszelkich usług dostępnych w Cortonie. Opis miejsca wynajmu i oferowanych udogodnień jak najbardziej wierny z rzeczywistością.
