This house was amazing. Everything was as expected and often much much better. The view is spectacular and everything is super close. We will definitely come back soon.

We had two wonderful weeks at this house in the heart of Cortona. Everything was as we expected it to be or better. Riccardo was very responsive to all our communications before and during our stay. He was unable to check us out or in, as our flight had been delayed a day and we had to leave very early on our last morning, but he made sure we were taken care of. He handed us off to Saverio and Jennifer (who live very close by) and who were wonderful and hospitable hosts. We love to cook while we're in Italy so we were delighted that the kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, plates, bowl, three different types of coffee makers, a gas stove, a dishwasher, and a host of other utensils. We even took advantage of the indoor grill to cook some florentine steaks one evening with the wood Saverio and Jennifer provided. The views of the Val di Chiana from the kitchen, living room, and especially the terrace on the roof are incredible. Perfect places to sit and drink coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. We will always remember this visit and our hosts very fondly. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home. Buonagiornata e alla prossima. :)

I have been to Cortona many times and wanted to take some friends to see it and the surrounding Tuscan countryside. This apartment is smack in the center of Cortona with an amazing view of the Valdichiana--one of my favorite views in all of Italy. The space is very large and can easily accommodate a large group without feeling like you are on top of each other. The apartment is on several floors, so make sure you are able to climb stairs comfortably. The hosts were very accommodating upon arrival and departure and even introduced us to a friend with a shop down the street in case we had an emergency and weren't able to reach the hosts. Make sure to spend time on the terrace with the amazing view of the valley--it's incredible.

The most magical and incredible home to visit! The decor is superb and the kitchen .... just flat dreamy ! Plenty of space for families or traveling companions . Views on both side of home and the 5th floor balcony are breath taking ! One sees the country side of sunflowers, vineyards and centuries old terra cotta roof tops while the other a side of home you experience one of the Main Streets of Cortona. I listened to live musicians almost daily from the privacy of my own beautiful suite . The hosts were incredible and very helpful the entire trip. I am planning our next trip back ! Said it before but ... pure magic happens in this family owned and cared for home. I hope you have the fortune to stay !

My party of 4 had a beautiful week in Cortona! The house is charming, and has everything you might need. Perfect location for shopping, restaurants, and sights. Not that you need to go out, since the views from the house are breathtaking. Riccardo and his brother were easy to communicate with, and very responsive to our needs.
