Matteo è gentilissimo e disponibile a dare indicazioni utili, bravissimo Host!
La casa è un amore, la posizione è centrale, entrando nel palazzo antico per raggiungerla all'ultimo piano già ci si immerge nella tipica atmosfera di Cortona, i pavimenti antichi, i gradini consumati dal tempo sono dei particolari apprezzabili anche mentre si sale senza ascensore!
Entrare in casa dopo le lunghe camminate della giornata è uno spettacolo unico grazie alle grandi finestre esposte su tre lati da dove si vedono tetti caratteristici, scorci delle vie principali del centro, la torre del palazzo del Comune illuminata in modo stupendo di notte, la cupola verde rame della chiesa di San Filippo Neri che fa da contrasto sulla vista della Val di Chiana, sembra di stare immersi totalmente in un quadro che trasmette bellezza ed emozioni.
L'arredamento tra l'antico tipico di Cortona ed il design moderno è in perfetto equilibrio e molto accogliente.
Abbiamo sostato per 4 giorni io, mio marito e la nostra bambina di 4 anni e ci siamo serviti anche della cucina ben attrezzata, la spesa si può fare comodamente al supermercato nella piazza adiacente a pochi metri a piedi (Piazza della Repubblica) dove c'è un mini market ben fornito e con prezzi onestissimi o anche nelle varie botteghe tutte raggiungibili a piedi.
Il parcheggio è a circa 200 mt ma si può passare con la macchina fino a pochi metri dal portone.
Per raccogliere le prime informazioni turistiche su eventi, orari e indicazioni di vario genere, c'è la libreria proprio su Piazza Luca Signorelli che distribuisce cartine e brochure gratis.
Torneremo spesso a Cortona proprio perché abbiamo trovato in Berrettini Tower il posto ideale per passare dei momenti indimenticabili!
Excellent accueil dans un très beau logement en plein coeur de Cortone... Idéal pour découvrir cette cité ainsi que la région.
Merci, Matteo !
Matteo was very welcoming! True to description, the apartment was beautiful, clean, and charming with incredible views. Perfect for 1-2 people. It gets very hot in the summer, I would suggest adding a fan to the room. I also had some trouble getting any wifi in the apartment as well, but there are plenty of cafes and restaurants with it.
Matteo was a really kind and helpful host and we had a great time in Cortona. The city is so lovely and the area is simply beutifiul. Berrettini Tower is the best accomodation in Cortona, the view is truly amazing! We could find everything in the flat what we needed and the interior is really tastful and nice. We spent our best days there during our holiday. Thank you sou much!
A marvellous apartment in a marvellous town. Ideally located right between two major squares. Lovely views from the windows. The necessary facilities were available and new. The owner, Matteo, was extremely nice and helpful. It’s hard to imagine a better-located apartment in Cortona. Recommended!
Matteo welcomed us to Cortona with a warm smile. He helped me with the bags and was able to give us recommendations for things to see and do, and places to eat. The apartment was perfect. It was clean and well appointed, with fabulous views of the town. The kitchen was fully functional and the bathroom, although tiny, was very clean and had everything one needed. I highly recommend Berrettini Tower if you plan to visit Cortona.
Matteo's apartment is like none other. Truly an incredible place. The views take your breath away. In the morning you wake up to the swallow birds which fly around the beautiful red rooftops of Cortona. The apartment is immaculate and the interior has been designed and decorated in such a beautiful way. Even the shower was fantastic - great water pressure!
You can't beat the location of the apartment. It's in the main square of the town surrounded by great restaurants and cafes to have a coffee or an aperitivo at.
Can't say enough great things about his apartment. We would most definitely stay there again and hope one day we will!
