Il Sole del Sodo is a small and cosy Bed & Breakfast with 6 charming rooms where you will be able to rest, sleep-in and relax surrounded by stunning Tuscan countryside. Situated outside the ancient Etruscan walls of Cortona – only 1 ½ miles from the town centre – Il Sole del Sodo is named after the neighbourhood in which it is located and by the sunshine that illuminates the property during the day. An ideal holiday home, with swimming-pool and lush courtyard, Il Sole del Sodo is also an excellent base for daytrips to valleys and charming towns in close proximity to Cortona – from Valdichiana to Val D’Orcia, from Montalcino to Pienza, from Spas to Churches frescoed by Piero della Francesca, and to nearby Umbria with its enchanting landscapes. And after a busy day you will be able to sit back and look at the sunset sipping on a glass of wine accompanied by a tasty selection of local products.

Il solo de sodo is a really beautiful b&b just outside of cortona. The breakfast was delicious and the host was friendly and helpful when I got a little list finding the b&b by foot. The hike up hill to cortona is a little difficult and a work out, best if you have a car. However the locals are really friendly and you can be lucky to get a lift up and back. The pool and outdoor area was really lovely as well.
Overall staying at "Il Sole Del Sodo" was a fantastic experience. One we will never forget. As Claudia (the host) had just become a first time parent we had the pleasure of meeting Paula & Jim (from San Diego) filling in for the her as the part- time hosts for the B&B. From the moment we arrived Paula & Jim made us feel very special. The accommodation itself is very warm & comfortable with a genuine Tuscan feel.
"Il Sole Del Sodo" has all the facilities you could ever require, from a swimming pool through to a warm & friendly breakfast/common room with excellent Wi-fi connection. The food was fresh & cooked daily as Paula & Jim are the best bakers - breakfast was wonderful with a warm and personal greeting each time.
"Il Sole Del Sodo" is a 30 minute walk uphill (not that we did it) to the beautiful hilltop village of Cortona. Cortona is a magnificant medievil village with lots to see & do as well as spectacular views. Well worth the 30 minute walk uphill (not that we did it)! Having a hire car made this journey so much easier.
Staying at "Il Sole Del Sodo" was one of the highlights of our 5 week journey through Italy & we would highly reccommend this accomodation. If you get to meet Paula & Jim say hi from us as they are very special people.

We stayed in the private apt here in September. We were here for 5 days. We loved Cortona. The b and b however did not live up to our expectations. The pictures on the site are older. The room was quite old and run down. We did'nt mind that it was old as that was part of the experience- but it needed cleaning and dusting. There were cob webs on the cieling. In the 5 days we were there - there was no housekeeping.
We checked in on the weekend and the owner had her family over - so the kids had taken over the pool. The breakfast had very limited items to choose from and they did not refill it. The first day the owners family/kids ate breakast too and even though we were up quite early most of the food was gone. I was dissapointed as this was the most expensive place we stayed at in Italy. We did not see Claudia accept on the first day. The place was very difficult to find. By the time she emailed me the directions we were only on our trip and had limited access to internet. Parking is in the back- a bit of a walk- but that was not bad. She has a couple of dogs and cats as well. We did not mind as we are animal lovers.
I would stay in Cortona again- but not at this b and b-it was not worth the money we paid. It was not a bad experience- it was just dissapointing and I expected more.
Claudia's bnb in Cortona was so lovely. We pulled in late to Cortona while Claudia was serving dinner she graciously took us to our lovely rooms and still took care of her other guests. Her place is so lovely and peaceful. Breakfast was plentiful and elegant. I wish I'd had more than one night there.
Unglaublich Schööööön! Simply Beautiful! Lindissimoooo!
Wir wurden super freundlich von Paula und Jim empfangen. Das B&B kommt einer kleinen Oase nahe. Umringt von Sonnenblumen und mit einem tollen Pool ausgestattet verzaubert einen das B&B. Unser Zimmer hatte einen Balkon und das Frühstück war großartig, es gab sogar selbstgebackenen Kuchen (Danke Paula!!). Der Kaffe schmeckte sehr gut. Wir wären gerne länger geblieben, bei so viel herzlicher Gastfreundschaft!
Danke! Grazie! Thanks!
