Wir hatten zwei wirklich wunderbare Wochen in Cortona. Das Haus liegt rund vier Autominuten unterhalb der Stadt und besitzt einen wunderschönen Blick ins Tal.
Der Ort Cortona und die umliegende Gegend sind äußerst sehenswert, auch da man in rund einer Stunde sowohl Siena, als auch Florenz erreicht hat. Das bedeutend näher gelegene Arezzo ist ebenso nicht zu unterschätzen.
Das Haus war geschmackvoll und vollständig für einen Urlaub eingerichtet. Der Pool wurde regelmäßig gesäubert und in Stand gehalten. Den gesamten Zeitraum über war immer jemand für Fragen von uns erreichbar. Zu unserer Ankunft gab es sogar ein Frühstück mit Kuchen und Kaffee.
Insgesamt ist das Haus an jeden uneingeschränkt zu empfehlen.
The Agriturismo Il Torrino is a beautifully appointed property with well-equipped and comfortable accommodation. The pool is kept in immaculate condition and the grounds are also superbly maintained. We were made very welcome by our hosts, who made sure we had everything we needed and more. The views across the 'Valchiana' are splendid, day and night, with Mount Amiata and Montepulciano in the distance. We would highly recommend this property as it is also perfectly located for many worthwhile day trips as well as being a calm haven to return to.
Amazing place!! Truly wonderful. The apartment has everything you could want and more. The kitchen is fully furnished and has everything you could want to cook a full meal. The house in general is in excellent condition and pool is wonderful! Rita and her husband are excellent hosts. They helped with everything we wanted.
Allegria and kindness await the fortunate travelers who wend their way to the outskirts of Cortina where Nella and Alessandro keep a pristine house and sparkling pool ready for their guests. They are the best of the best of hosts--sincerely warm and welcoming, with every imaginable detail thought through. Nella had baked a cake to welcome us, but she and Alessandro were far sweeter and their place even more pleasant. Our stay was unforgettably lovely!
Great place to stay with amazing views! The hosts were very friendly and the place was really clean. We are 3 couples, place is 2 bedrooms and a sofa bed. The pool was a lovely temperature overlooking beautiful views. Short walk uphill to restaurants, would suggest driving half way. Highly recommend.
After a dream come true hiking trip in Tuscany, we stayed for four nights in Nella´s Farmhouse.
We were two couples and stayed in the ground floor apartment and loved it!
The house and the ground was perfect, the pool even better and our hosts Rita and Alessandro made us feel very welcome.
20 min. hiking trip from the house, uphill to the beautiful Cortona which has many nice restaurants. A relaxing walk back to the house with a refreshing swim in the pool and a barbecue by the house. What could be better? We will recommend this to all our friends and family and would love to stay in the farmhouse again.
Vi had a most pleasant stay with Nella.
Just one night though, but we would like to come back one day.
The house is very nicely renovated we slept like in a dream and woke up to a fresh baked cake and everything for a quick breakfast
We could just reach a dip in the pool before leaving, and they supplied large towels for swimming

About the Host, Nella
Dopo tanti anni passati a lavorare presso l'Azienda di Trasporto Pubblico di Arezzo, la mia città, nell'area direttiva...oggi mi diverto ad ospitare tanti turisti e curiosi nella mia piccola tenuta di Cortona, mi occupo di tutta la logistica...e soprattutto di un grande oliveto che si trova sulla collina di Cortona che domina tutta la Valdichiana.
