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!
This is a very magical apartment. It is right at the top of the building and has windows on all 4 sides, so the views over Cortona and the Tuscan hills are wonderful. We loved waking up in the morning to the sound (and sight) of swallows flying around at eye level:)
The aptmt is well thought out - simply and elegantly furnished and the pullout bed is extremely comfortable. The shower has a good supply of hot water.
The location could not be any better ........it is on the main square and above some outstandingly good coffee shops, bars and the best Gelateria in Cortona.
There are a dozen excellent restaurants within a 5 min walk, and the buses are also a 5 min walk away. These buses will take you to the train station, or to other places of interest you may want to visit. We did easy and fun day tips from the aptmt to Assissi, Orvietto, Arezzo, etc.
Matteo is a delight to communicate with, and answers any questions immediately. If and when we return to Cortona, we would love to stay at Matteo's aptmnt again.
I think the fact that we have chosen to come back and stay at Matteo's apartment for a second time, speaks for itself.
It is a lovely, comfortable aptment, very airy, with wonderful views of Cortona and the surrounding countryside, a comfortable pull out bed, and a small, but very well functioning bathroom.
Matteo is a pleasure to deal with, and goes out of his way to make sure his guests have everything they need.
Matteo's place is lovely and centrally located. Well-accommodated. There was a blow dryer which was particularly nice. Matteo himself was extremely helpful, taking me to drop off my rental car en route to the train station. Overall, a wonderful experience. I think that Matteo's apartment could fit two comfortably. And don't forget to duck when entering the restroom.
We had a great time in Cortona thanks to Matteo and his wonderful apartment in tower. Being in a heart of Cortona was just perfect. Apartment was well equipped, tidy and very sunny. We had everything we needed right on the spot. Matteo was a great host that showed us everything and provided us with useful information about region and Italy in general. I recommend Bertini tower to everyone.
