Delightful owners who made us feel welcome and were very helpful. We loved the historic farm house with its enormous kitchen chimney. We found the shower was not particularly good and with only a curtain it was messy. Also the kitchen equipment was not very modern and we could have done with an electric kettle. However we liked the ambience and were comfortable there.

It was a wonderful tuscan farmhouse, after the rush of visiting towns lovely to come back to serenity! In close proximity to all major attractions in tuscany and umbria. Highly recommended.

The home was very beautifully renovated in heritage style and very relaxing and comfortable. A lovely garden to sit and enjoy the roses, sunshine and ambience. Cortona just 4k away is a stunning town with lots of style and very grand. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Leda's home. Lorenza was very helpful with her excellent suggestions. Vicki

Lorenza's place is wonderfully situated in a rural area just below the lovely Tuscan town of Cortona. The home is nicely furnished and full of charm. We stayed there during a particularly harsh cold snap in April, which added considerably to the price (heating costs 5 euros an hour). For the sake of economy, we used the heat only 2 hours in the morning and three hours in the evening, so we were somewhat cold for much of the stay. The place is undoubtedly best used from late spring to early fall, when you can sit outside in the sun and enjoy the beautiful setting and the rustic property. That being said, we were quite content at Lorenza's place and definitely plan to return-- just not in the iffy month of April.

Leda's Farmhouse will unexpectedly sneak a place in your heart. It's quite basic (albeit with a washing machine, dishwasher and microwave) but the beds are comfortable, linens crisp and plentiful and the views from every window lift the weight from your shoulders. There's a decent trattoria 2K down the road in Ossaia, an excellent supermarket/deli 1.5K in the opposite direction and the stunning city of Cortona is 5k. The open air pool is stunning and Etruscan history plentiful. Lorenza and her mum are charming and helpful but from a respectful distance. You will need transport of some sort but don't let that put you off; it's magical.

We had a very good stay here. It was very conveniently placed for sightseeing and very comfortable for two people. We would certainly return.

Lorenza and her husband met us near the church in town and we followed them to her beautiful farmhouse. It was such a unique experience to stay in a farmhouse in Tuscany. We even had wifi which I was not expecting. I was not familiar with the highway system in Italy and ended up with a $50+ ticket because I didn't understand the toll road and my GPS led me to the Express toll lane. I asked Lorenza and her husband how the highway system worked and showed them my ticket. They took the time to send in a request to the highway department on my behalf and I only had to pay about $7 for the ticket. Thank you so much for going out of your way and doing this for us. We learned that Italian culture is welcoming and kind and truly want visitors to feel at home.
