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
Es entsprach nicht nur unseren Erwartungen, es hat sie übertroffen! Ein großzügiges Apartment in einem stimmungsvollen alten Haus, alles vorhanden was man so braucht, und besonders bezaubernd der kleine Paradiesgarten hinterm Haus , der sogar noch eine zusätzliche Kochmöglichkeit in einem alten renovierten Backhaus hat. Paolo und Daniela waren aufmerksame und charmante Gastgeber, wir hatten interessante Gespräche und mit Paolo haben wir die etruskischen Gräber in der Nähe besichtigt.Corona selbst ist fußläufig auf einer wenig befahrenen Straße zu erreichen. Ein wunderbarer Ort für "dolce far niente" und schöner Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen.
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.
Daniela and Paolo were wonderful hosts. This was a perfect Tuscan experience.
It was so authentic and a great location. Everything was clean, spacious and very, very nice. We loved it here and would come back any time. Again, Paulo and Daniela were so good to us and we felt very welcome.
Daniela and Paolo were very accommodating hosts! The room was exactly as described. Very charming! We will return again.
