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"

The space

2017 NEWS: BALCONY REBUILT, EQUIPPED WITH TABLE AND 4 CHAIRS

2016 NEWS: AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM INSTALLED, RENOVATED BATHROOM, CREATED AN ATTIC OVER THE LIVING ROOM
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 attic is "the icing on the cake". The night area disposes of two bedrooms, a large and very bright double one and a twin one sharing the same bathroom with 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.

Amazing apartment and location! 3 minutes from the city center if you walk the steep stairs, or 6 minutes from the city center if you walk the long non-steep way :) The best views of any apartment I have ever stayed at in my life. Well worth the stay, AC in every room, and WIFI accessible from the living room. Nice kitchen, gas stoves and plenty to cook with. You will fall in love with this apartment and Cortona!

My family of 4 enjoyed staying at Tetrazzini 1 for two weeks. The place has a picturesque view of Tuscan landscape from every room, is comfortable with all the amenities and is centrally located. It is a short walk to the heart of Cortona yet is private and quiet. The air conditioning was a life saver during the hot July days. We loved the place and hope to stay there again in the future.

Giampieros apartment is in a stunning hillside location in a lovely town. The details of his apartment made it our favorite stay in Italy. You can sit on the porch and look out at miles of Tuscany, while the swallows swoop all around you. He has a beautiful aesthetic, and the apartment is both comfortable and beautiful. He left us with many welcoming touches in the apartment. There is a washing machine, a dishwasher, and an extra upstairs hangout room. Even in a big heatwave, the apartment stayed cool. We loved cortona and would like to come back. The people there are warm and welcoming. The apartment is located between the top of the town where you can walk up to the top for more views, and the bottom, where stores and food are. Thank you Giampiero!

We had a great time at Giampiero’s place. It's in a quiet part of town but still walkable to the shops and restaurants. The views are incredible too... would stay again!

My husband and I were celebrating our 25th Anniversary in Italy and we chose this gorgeous 2 bedroom apartment as our home base. It was fabulous! The view is to die for- every day we woke up, went out on the terrace and drank in the gorgeous view. The location is excellent and Giampiero was wonderful. He was gracious, had adorable sweets and snacks as well as a bottle of wine for us when we arrived. He was helpful and great at answering questions for recommendations as well as booking us a driver back to Rome at the end of our trip. Plus we left a bag of fragile items at the apartment (we meant to take them as a carry on) and he graciously sent them back to us. We absolutely LOVED this apartment and can't say enough good things about it, Giampiero and Cortona. AWESOME!!

This was my family and my 6th time in Cortona, and we absolutely loved this apartment. It's comfortable, clean, spacious and quaint. It appears recently renovated but still shows that charm of the old brick buildings that make up the town. There are windows and a view in every room, which is most important to us and the best way to experience Tuscany. The terrace is bigger than it looks and has one of the best views in town. The pictures do not do this place justice. It is a short walk to the main street and piazzas... we were worried it may be too far before we booked, but we were not disappointed. We would definitely book here again. Giampiero was extremely accommodating with our late arrival/departure and entire stay. He was easy to contact and kindly stocked the fridge with water and a bottle of wine. He owns the apartment across the hall as well, so if we visit with another family or friends in the future, we would consider booking both. We are very happy we chose this stay and can't wait to come back.
