About this listing
In an old building of the hystorical center, very sunny and scenic: a balcony with a spectacular view over Valdichiana, Trasimeno Lake and mountains far away. Just few steps down the street and you are in Ruga Piana or Signorelli Square "movida"
In an old building of the historic centre, situated on the second and last floor, two symmetrical doors lead to Terrazzini di Cortona, two lovely apartments both characterised by a small terrace with wonderful view on the entire valley. A unique view that stretches to the Lake Trasimeno and the peaks of Mount Cetona and Amiata, and dominates form above the town of Cortona with its old buildings, old rooves, hidden terraces and small secret gardens. Here, from up the building, you will be able to enjoy the silence, peace, unforgettable landscapes and the wonderful sunlight that illuminates the living area almost all day long. It will be a pleasure to contemplate the sunset with its evocative colours on the terrace, to drink a glass of good wine, to relax reading a book or just to sit pampered by the warmth of the sun. The access to the apartment is composed of two staircases, each with 18 steps. The entrance door leads to the bright sitting room with sofa and TV separated by a glass door from the fully-equipped kitchen. Guests will have at their disposal a dining room with round table for 4/6 people. The night area disposes of two bedrooms, a large and very bright double one and a twin one sharing the same bathroom with bathtub and shower. Free Wi-Fi. The central position will allow you to be right in the central square of the town, to take walks among the characteristical art shops and antique stores, and to relax while having a drink in one of the numerous café of the town centre, completely "breathing" the atmosphere of Cortona.
The apartment is beautiful with a million dollar view. We couldn't ask for more. Fabulous.
We very much enjoyed staying in the 2 BR 1 BA apartment while vacationing with my wife and two daughters. Much more spacious than the photos suggest and the views are incredible. The apt was clean and comfortable. Giampiero is a terrific host, providing responsive communication before and during our stay. We really appreciate him meeting us in town and then escorting us to the apt. We liked the location in a quiet residential area, while being a short walk to the main piazza. Overall, a great place to stay - we would definitely stay here again.
We stayed four nights in this fantastic apartment. The views were breathtaking overlooking the rooftops of Medeival Cortona and the Chiana Valley plus Lake Trasimeno below. The dining room added to the sophisticated atmosphere.
The apartment is very spacious for a family. The host Giampiero had left candies for the kids, all sorts of food and sweets for the family and even a nice bottle of sprtkling wine for mum&dad...
We came by car and Cortona with its steep, narrow streets is not very easy to drive through. But you get used to it! There is a free parking near the house, which we used.
Giampiero is very kind and careful. Follow his advice if you choose to stay in his superb apartment!
A charming, beautiful, and clean apartment! Perfect location and Giampiero was so friendly and accommodating. Would highly recommend!
We enjoyed the "vacation of a lifetime" in our beautiful "villa in the sky" overlooking Cortona and Umbria! The hosts, Giampiero and Marie Silva were most welcoming, engaging and attentive to our every need -- we not only had the most lovely apartment, we gained new friends!
The apartment is VERY spacious and LOVINGLY FURNISHED with much attention to detail. Our hosts were passionate about truly making this a dream vacation for us! Two weeks went by far too quickly!
Thank you Giampiero and Marie Silva for an unforgettable vacation and for your loving kindness!

If you are looking for a place in Cortona to enjoy magnificent views, spacious, clean and comfortable accommodations with a friendly, professional host, look no further...this is THE place to stay.
Giampiero (and his lovely wife) were positively splendid. They welcomed us warmly, made us feel right at home and even had a bottle of chilled Prosecco waiting for us on arrival.
The apartment itself is absolutely stunning. This was perhaps our 30-35th airbnb stay for my wife and I and we can say this place was among the very best anywhere. It's close enough to all the restaurants and bars, yet feels secluded up above it all with views over the entire countryside. The lounge is comfortable and both bedrooms boast magnificent light and (yet more) sweeping views.
We spent 16 nights there...and it wasn't nearly enough. We look forward to returning some ay soon.
Thanks for everything, Giampiero.
Giampiero’s place is really nice, spacious, clean and very comfortable, in the town center, and with an incredible view over the landscape! Giampiero is a friendly and very helpful host. He takes care of you on the arrival and available in any case of need. We would love to stay here again. Definitely recommend!
