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.
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!
We had an absolutely fantastic time at Giampiero's apartment. The apartment is very central, only a stone's throw from the main street via Nationale. Giampiero was also an excellent host. We arrived by train at Camucia (the closest station) and he happened to be in the neighbourhood so gave us a lift to the apartment. We were also welcomed with a bottle of wine, bread and jam. Giampiero was very easy to contact and flexible with check-in and out times. The apartment itself has everything you need and the view is incredible from the apartment. I would highly recommend staying here! If I ever return to Cortona, this is where I will be staying again!!
We stayed three nights in this lovely apartment - the pictures did not do it justice! Beautiful views from all rooms down the valley or into the old city. The apartment was beautifully furnished and Giampiero and his wife left us some wine, drinks, fruit and snacks on arrival which was an unexpected bonus. They met us on arrival and showed us through the apartment - two big rooms, dining room, bathroom, kitchen and living room. There was a washing machine (which we didn't use), a dishwasher, hairdryer etc and even shampoo and body lotion samples. The location was great - a few minutes walk to the centre of town but also quiet at night. We had a hire car which we could park in the street. We were with another couple who had a 1 year old and they provided a cot for them too. I would love to have the opportunity to stay here again and I will recommend it to anyone travelling to Cortona - a lovely city to visit.
