About This Listing
'La Mansarda del Sodo' is a typical Tuscan house, placed at the bottom of the hill in the archeological Etruscan area, one km and half from the center of Cortona: a lovely garden, 3 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, living room, kitchen.
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.
Guests have access to the garden with barbeque, garden equipment. 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.
We always welcome our guests ourselves and my husband Paolo will be always there to provide assistance and also a guided tour of this beautiful area or any information needed.

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.
Daniela y Paolo son unos excelentes anfitriones: amables, simpaticos, discretos y siempre dispuestos a conseguir que la estancia en su casa resulte lo mas grata posible. La casa es perfecta, tal y como muestran las fotos, y su bonito jardin es el espacio idesl para empezar el dia con un buen desayuno y terminarlo con una suculenta barbacoa. El precioso pueblo de Cortona es un enclave perfecto para visitar los mejores sitios de la Toscana. Os aconsejo
seguir las recomendaciones de Daniela y Paolo. Muchas gracias a los dos por vuestra hospitalidad!!!
Grazie Laura per le tue belle parole. Siamo felici che vi siate trovati bene. Speriamo davvero possiate tornare in Toscana a trovarci, sarebbe bello incontrarvi di nuovo. E grazie anche per le indicazioni, è una questione su cui stiamo lavorando, Daniela e Paolo
We are two mature aged couples on holiday. We found Cortona a beautiful village and a wonderful base to explore both Tuscany and Umbria.
We had only one week with Daniela and Paulo, but we found their B&B exactly as described in the brochure and met our needs very well.
Paulo was extremely helpful and friendly, in fact we enjoyed a couple of BBQ'S and drinks with him.
We would highly recommend this well appointed and perfectly positioned house to anyone seeking to enjoy this beautiful part of Italy.

Thanks a lot for your nice review. It was really a pleasure to have you all as our guests. I enjoyed a lot the time spent with you. I'm sure you know perfectly which will be my favourite team at the next rugby world cup. Daniela and I would love to welcome you back. Paolo
Daniella and Paolo were great hosts. They provided excellent driving directions, wonderful photo maps of local hikes and were a joy to chat with about the area.
The apartment is very large with a great kitchen for cooking. Great location with a car as you are outside the main walled portion of Cortona and always have parking. We stayed ten days and had a hard time leaving. Highly recommended.
Siamo stati ospiti di Daniela e Paolo nel weekend di Pasqua. La casa è accogliente, charming ed esattamente come da foto che tanto ci avevano attratto. Le temperature esterne in quei giorni erano fredde ma la dotazione di un ottimo impianto di riscaldamento ci ha fatto stare a nostro agio nel tepore dell'appartamento.
La cucina ben attrezzata è stata utilissima per gestire due bimbi piccoli e ovviamente anche le esigenze dei grandi..
Un bellissimo weekend.
Daniela e Paolo discretissimi ma sempre disponibili all'occorrenza. Torneremo sicuramente.
