I'm an experienced traveller who somehow stayed in London, so I like to get out frequently for short visits. I'm opening a gallery in London which equally allows me to travel and see more of Europe which I love.

What a wonderful place!
We stayed in Nigel's apartment for 3 nights and were very pleased we did. The location is beyond ideal if your planning on staying in cortona. It's literally 50 yards from the central square where you can find everything you need and is just a short hike uphill from the bus station or taxi drop off (10 euros for a taxi from train station)
The apartment is located down a quite alley. It's clean, with enough room for 4 people to sleep(we only had 2). The kitchen was nice and has the necessary items need to cook/dine. Two bathrooms. Comfortable bed. Drawers and closet to hang your items. It's an older place with a few spiders here and there so if you have arachnophobia you might look else where.
No wifi :(
Timely responses when booking. Hessi (takes care of the place) was wonderful with lots of information and speaks great English. The bottle of wine waiting for us was a nice touch.
We would stay again and definitely recommend this place when staying in Cortona.
The apartment was perfect. Clean and well equipped with two sleeping areas and two bathrooms. It is a two minute walk to the main piazza on a quiet lane close to all the activity.
Nigel was a great host and got back to us promptly with our inquiries.
Thanks for a wonderful stay in Cortona!!
Nigel's apartment in Cortona was brilliant. It had everything we needed - there was even a bottle of wine to welcome us. Communication with Nigel and check in with his friend Hessi all went very smoothly. The place was great value and I would recommend it
This apartment is plain marvelous. We were charmed the moment we set foot into it and wanted to come back as soon as we left!!!
We were welcomed by Hessi, a great person, who guided us to the place, gave us plenty of useful information for our stay and proved very helpful as soon as we needed anything. We were even welcomed with bottles of white and red Tuscan wine and plenty of fresh flower bouquets in the apartment's different rooms. Makes you feel at home. Coffee, tea, garlic, olive oil and a couple basic food stuffs were also available and made our first morning breakfast very easy!
The place is very well designed and is perfect for 2 to 4 visitors. The stone floor, kitchen area and wooden furniture gives it (what we believe to be) a truly authentic touch. The apartment is decorated with much taste, everything feels at its place. The kitchen area offers all the necessary for cooking (at walking distance - 2 min not even - you may find groceries and stores were you can buy tasty local products).
The Italian bathrooms (2 of them well equipped!!) are also very clean, convenient and charming.
It definitely feels cozy and you would want to stay at home if it weren't for all the magnificent sites and cities to visit in the area. The Cortona village itself is very beautiful and well deserves to be visited. People are friendly, a lot of good and decent priced restaurants, as well as many shops and art galleries. Parking is extremely convenient and free, which is a big plus compared to other villages and cities of the area. Cortona is a great place from which you can prepare your different expeditions: Perugia, Arezzo, Siena, Montepulciano, Firenze (most of them accessible by train also) and the magnificent countryside are at arm's reach.
For those planning to spend their holiday in Tuscany we strongly recommend this apartment. Whether a party of 2, 3 or 4 you are sure to spend a great time.
Thank you Hessi and Nigel
