Make yourself at home in this charming top floor apartment in a typical old Tuscan stone house. The apartment has been restored to preserve the original features with terracotta tile floors and ancient beams. The house is set in the Sodo's hamlet amidst the olive groves. Our lovely apartment in the middle of nature is perfect to reach all main Tuscan and Umbrian sightseeings, not far from Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza and Perugia, just to quote a few ones, and only 20 minutes away there is the Trasimeno Lake.

Inside a small house located in the garden is available a small kitchen so is possible to prepare food outside and fully enjoy the lovely garden area! The Sodo is located in the heart of the countryside with all the benefits of historical city nearby. The wonderful town of Cortona is just a few minutes drive from Sodo.

Barrio muy fácil de acceso con agradables paseos en el entorno inmediato. Casa muy acogedora y muy fácil de vivir. Muchas opciones de visita muy próximas a la casa. Disponibilidad total de Paolo y Daniela.
The 4 of us loved our stay at Daniela and Paolo's beautiful apartment. They were very welcoming and helpful. We found the information they sent us to be most useful and despite the extreme heat, we had a great time. We swam in Lake Trasimeno on 3 days and that was a saviour for us.
We arrived several hours early and our hosts were very gracious to let us begin our stay at once. They were helpful with many suggestions as to restaurants , shopping, places to visit. They also were very friendly and available when needed. Felt quite comfortable and welcomed by them both.
Quelle magnifique expérience! Daniela et Paolo ont été des hôtes vraiment merveilleux. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié toutes les attentions qu'ils ont eues pour nous. Ils ont été très disponibles et respectueux de notre intimité. Les guides avec photos qu'ils ont préparés pour des randonnées dans la nature à deux pas de là sont super! L'appartement est magnifique avec de belles grandes chambres et une vue superbe. Ce fut vraiment un bonheur de profiter de la magnifique terrasse et nous y avons passé toutes nos soirées! L'emplacement est idéal pour visiter Cortona qui est à cinq minutes en voiture. (Pour les passionnés de chevaux et d'équitation, il y a une écurie à quelques minutes à pied où il est possible de faire des randonnées parmi les vignobles).
Lovely accommodation-very well equipped and spacious.
a relaxing place to stay comfortable inside and with a garden as well!
it is well situated for Cortona but also Sienna, lake Tresimeno, Perugia
the hosts were very helpful and kind.
Daniela was extremely helpful from the very first contact, arranging a rental car for us as well as responding to some requests specific to our group. During our stay she and Paolo were responsive and friendly, offering us good suggestions about places to eat and see, and helping us with any difficulties we encountered. The apartment itself is clean and delightful, very conveniently located for visiting many parts of Tuscany and Umbria. The only slight disadvantage is that two of the three bedrooms open onto a road which can get quite busy with traffic. This is the only negative about the whole place - I highly recommend it!
What a great place and what great hosts. If I am ever in the Cortona area, this is where I am staying.
