What a wonderful base to explore and embrace Cortona from!
2 minute walk from everything, the luxury of a home away from home, greeted with wine, sweets, breakfast goodies- Simone was a truly delightful host - having thought of everything!
I would highly recommend Simone and his place as a base or your holiday in Corona, and hope to visit there again one day
While Casa Idilio Cortona is charming, Simone, is priceless! This wonderful man, cares for his guests as though they were his children. The apartment is warn, cozy and very clean. The terrace is such a bonus. Take Simone's suggestions for sights and food and Cortona may just be the highlight of your trip.
Simone's apartment made for the perfect home base during our recent honeymoon trip to Cortona. The location was close to the center of town, yet still quiet and tucked away. (Well, okay, the entire town is quiet and tucked away, but that's why you're visiting Cortona, right?)
The apartment was charming, spacious, and clean. The pictures are all accurate, the one exception being the bathroom image of the tub: it's actually a stand-up shower. That said, the water pressure is great, and we never ran out of hot water (which is saying a lot in Europe).
We loved the terrace at the back of the apartment; it was the perfect place to enjoy a late lunch with meats, cheeses and bread fresh from the weekly open-air market. This leisurely meal was made even more special with the local chianti that Simone left for us.
Simone was a great host: funny, kind and thoughtful. He offered to give us a ride from the Camucia train station at the base of Cortona, which made for such a nice welcome! He also gave us some great restaurant recommendations (try Fufluns! Great pasta, and the best farro soup ever).
Simone's apartment is the perfect place to stay while visiting one of the most magical towns in Italy. Highly recommended; we can't wait to return!
Our second stay with Simone, so it must be a good place. Simone is a great host, leaving food for breakfast, fruit milk etc. The apartment is quaint and delightful and has all that is needed for a really enjoyable holiday. Would not hesitate to recommend it. Also, Cortona is a fantastic base for a holiday in Tuscany.
Simone was the ultimate host; even coming to the train station to pick us up when we arrived. He had many little unusual touches, fresh fruit, candy, some breads and even some drinks in the frig. The house was well equipped but unfortunately we are very attached to our computers and did miss not have access to the Internet. We were able to get on free wifi at Bar Signorelli in the piazza. This would be a wonderful place to spend a week; especial in the summer with the lovely patio off of the kitchen. The apartment has a ground floor entry and is only a few minutes walk up to the city hall piazza where everything is happening! You'll enjoy your stay in Cortona with Simone; he makes you feel like a friend of the family!
I'm a little late on my review as I've been in Cortona 2 months ago, but I keep a really great memory of the town, as much as of Simone, who is a fantastic host.
He helped us to get in Cortona from a train station, also with the good places around. He seems to know everyone there, so if you want to do activities, you can definitely see with him first
The appartment is a really old house, it's impressive to stay in there! There's a nice backyard where you can get some light and enjoy wine and some home cooking.
Simone was really respectful, kept us aware if the activities around.
I hope we could one day meet again and stay in touch once in a while!
We had a great time staying at Casa Idilio in early September.The house was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed and it was ideal to be able to wash and dry clothing. We would have breakfast outside on the large patio each morning enjoying the early sunshine.The house is ideally situated just 2 minutes walk to the main town square.Simone is a great guy who offered to pick us up from the station and drove me to the local town to arrange a hire car at very reasonable (email hidden)anks for everything Simone,we would recommend your place to anyone.Kind regards from Tony and family.
Great location in the heart of Cortona. Absolutely lovely host, Simone who was very welcoming, friendly and accommodating. The apartment was gorgeous and had everything you could need for a longer stay. We couldn't recommend this place enough!
My friends and I were so lucky to have Simone as our host in Cortona. He hooked us up with an ideal apartment that suited 4 traveling girls that just wanted a cute place to stay. But we got much more - we stayed in a gorgeous apartment from the 1500's that was just a stairway from the main street. Amazing views too. Simone had the perfect playful personality and made us feel very welcomed. I would highly recommend Simone as a host and staying at one of his apartments. Grazie mille!
