About this listing

My cozy 3-floor house is placed on top of the Etruscan walls of Cortona, at the edge of the historic center, on a very quiet and characteristic street. It can accommodate up to 4 guests. I hope you will enjoy the stunning view on the valley beneath!

The space

Immersed in the Tuscan countryside and surrounded by the picturesque streets of Cortona, my house is the perfect place to relax. You can take the chance to visit the beautiful surrounding area, go hiking, have a glass of good wine in front of the fireplace, or just enjoy the breathtaking view of Valdichiana valley from the house.
The house has 3 floors and consists in 2 bathrooms - both with showers - 1 bedroom, 1 room for reading and chilling out with a very comfortable, double sized sofa bed, and 1 living room with open-style kitchen and fireplace. Furthermore, there is an outdoor area in the back facing the valley beneath that can be used to accommodate a small table or just enjoy the sunset. The house can cozily accommodate up to 4 persons and every room is extremely bright.
Wi-Fi internet connection, satellite TV, washing machine, stereo, american coffee maker, espresso machine, microwave, oven, and dishwasher are also provided.

I am sure you will love the place as much as I do!

Ester's home was the perfect place to stay for our family. Very comfortable,and the view was breath taking. The bedroom downstairs was perfect for our 14 year old son, who was ready for a break from us. Ester was the perfect host- had fruit waiting for us and arranged for a taxi to and from the train station. She was very responsive before and during our trip, which was very helpful since we were not sure if our phones would work during our trip. If you are considering booking this air bnb, just book it. You will not be disappointed! We will return, and hopefully soon! Mille grazie, Ester!

Ester's house in Cortona is without doubt the most wonderful place to stay in. It is in a secluded peaceful street but within a very short walk from the main square which is the heart of the city. It is so beautifully and comfortably furnished and very clean. It's charm cannot be over stated. The perfect place from which to enjoy the delights of Eastern Tuscany. Go there if you can and enjoy for yourselves. Ester filled the house with roses from her own garden and the personal touches made it much more of an immediate home environment than a mere place to stay in. We cannot recommend it more highly than to say congratulations to Ester for making her house a dream to stay in.

Ester's place goes above and beyond what you can imagine. Ester was a wonderful host, she arranged several drivers for us during our time in Cortona, including pick up from the train station and to a winery. Her recommendations were fantastic! The house itself is beautiful, the view beyond what you can even imagine. It is clean and well-stocked with water and coffee. We would certainly recommend staying here, and hope to be back soon!

We have stayed the last five nights in Ester's beautiful cottage. Ester was a great host - check-in was clear and very easy. We had requested a baby cot and that was all set up when we arrived, which was great. The house itself is very comfortable and clean with everything you need. It is very central and has a beautiful outlook. Many thanks Ester, we hope to see you again soon.

We (2 people) just spent 2 weeks in Cortona in Ester's apartment. We had a wonderful stay and would HIGHLY recommend the apartment. It is located just 2-3 minutes from the main piazzas and therefore close to all of the shops and restaurants. From just outside the back door you are on top of the ancient walls with views of the valley below. Ester was a great host meeting us, getting us settled-in and providing recommendations. A few things to know: 1. The apartment is on three levels - The front entrance to a family room, bathroom and laundry room; second level with the living area, kitchen and back entrance; top floor with master bedroom and bathroom. 2. There is a separate charge for gas usage for heating, hot water and stove top. For us it averaged ~€8/day. We were there in winter and we're also in the apartment (heating it most days). Ester will explain this. We hope to come back to Cortona again soon and would definitely stay at Ester's apartment again.

Ester's place was exactly what we needed, and exactly as described. The location is perfect (on a quiet back street but just moments from the main piazza) and the views from the back door are wonderful. The house is clean, spacious and (not to be underestimated!) with a very comfortable bed. In fact we slept really well here; even the morning church bells didn't disturb us. We didn't spend huge amounts of time at the house, preferring to wander around town, eat out etc, but we did have one lovely and hugely relaxing afternoon by the open fire, just reading (and drinking the prosecco that Ester had kindly left for us ahead of New Years Eve). In short, the house is warm, comfortable, tastefully decorated and the perfect base from which to either explore Tuscany or enjoy a few days in this beautiful old town. Thank you Ester.

I was born in Tuscany. The beauty of my land taught me to appreciate harmony and its history forged my interest for other cultures and other people's stories. I love art, literature, cinema, music. I love traveling and getting to know new countries and different lifestyles.
It is the greatest of pleasures, for me, to welcome my guests in my house, to take care of them and advise them on what to see and what to do. I like the idea of sharing my books, the objects I love, the silence of Cortona, the view on the valley and all its ever-changing colors. Each guest leaves a piece of themselves and of their story in this cozy place and I am left with one of the most beautiful of feelings: having opened my house to an entirely new world.

Sono nata in Toscana e la bellezza della mia terra mi ha educata all'armonia, la ricchezza del suo passato ha determinato il mio interesse per la storia e per le storie delle persone. Amo l'arte, la lettura, il cinema, la musica, viaggiare e conoscere altri paesi e stili di vita diversi. Le persone mi piacciono, mi incuriosiscono, mi stimolano.
È un piacere prendersi cura degli ospiti, accoglierli nella mia casa, condividere con loro i miei libri, gli oggetti che amo, il silenzio di Cortona e la vista sulla valle, con i colori che cambiano ad ogni stagione. Ciascuno di loro lascia qualcosa di sé ed è bellissima la sensazione di aver aperto casa al mondo.
