The Space

This charming apartment, made of stones, consists of bedroom with queen size bed and a big wardrobe/closet, living room with a convertible sofa-bed and a breath taking view of the Val di Chiana Valley, full kitchen with dish washer, breakfast table and the same beautiful view as the living room. The bathroom has shower, bidet, sink and toilet. Also includes a washing machine for clothes, Free WiFi, Air conditioning and ceiling fans.
The house has been completely renovated in May 2009, taking care of any little particular and mixing the old Tuscan style with a modern touch.

NEW!!! Under The Tuscan Kitchen: Tuscan home cooking classes available now!

Free WiFi!

The Neighborhood

Built on a hill, this stone town house is right outside the old city walls (dating from the 2nd century B.C.) of Historical Centre of Cortona, an old city founded by The Etruscans, the ancient civilization that built Rome. Cortona is conveniently located in a 1,15 hrs drive from Florence, 2 hrs from Rome and Pisa International Airports, 30 mins from Perugia (in Umbria) and Arezzo, 45 mins from Siena, Assisi (Umbria), Montalcino (where the famous "Brunello" wine comes from), 30 mins from Montepulciano...all the best scenaries of famous Tuscan country, with sunflower fields in summer and colored trees in spring!

Getting Around

The closest airports are Florence (1hr 23min), Pisa (2hr 04min) and Rome (2hr 14min).

The closest train station is Cortona-Camucia (3,3 km - 6 mins by car) and I suggest you take a taxi to get to Cortona, even though there are buses too.
However, if you're able to let us know your ETA, my mom might even come to pick you up at the train station.

You don't need a car if you only want to stay in Cortona, and even if you'd like to visit surrounding cities such as Siena, Perugia, Arezzo, Firenze (Florence) etc you can just use trains or buses.
However, if you desire to rent a car, the parking is on the street in about 50/100 meters (55/109 yards) from the house, depending on where you find a spot and it's free. There's also another big parking lot right nearby, more or less the same distance.

You're in the near proximity of the centre and of all the restaurants and food stores you can find in Cortona, like 5-7 mins walking distance.

Other Things to Note

This is our family house. My great grandparents, grandparents and my mom lived here and the view on the valley is just stunning!!!

Cortona is famous as the inspiration and setting for the book Under the Tuscan Sun, (that later became a movie) written by USA writer-novelist Francis Mayes. It also homes a branch of the Georgia University - USA, for artistic matters, since 1970.

We expect you'll treat our apartment as if it was yours, with maximum respect and care. We put lots of love to make it comfortable, clean and nice for you and we expect you to leave it as you found it. Thank you very much, we appreciate that. :-)

Please, when you get out the house, remember to turn off lights. Electricity in Italy is quite expensive, so we would appreciate your thoughtfulness on this matter. :-)
