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.
How patient can you expect a host to be. Our train was cancelled to Cortona so we really inconvenienced Giampiero and he didn't complain he was only concerned for our well being.
If you are staying in Cortona, then this is the host you want and the apartment. Could fault a thing and will definitely be back.
Thanks Giampiero for taking such good care of us.
Giampiero was a terrific host, we were greeted by a nicely stocked welcome package that was very good. The apartment was accurately described: the photos of the interior make the flat appear smaller than it actually is, in fact it was a very comfortable flat and there were three of us. Cortona is a spectacular town with incredible views of the valdichiana and this apartment boasts one of the best unobstructed views on three sides. There is a small window terrace, enough for two chairs and two cups of tea! We enjoyed the flat thoroughly and recommend it highly.
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!
