Ciao a tutti sono Claudia, proprietaria del Bed and Breakfast Il Sole del Sodo a Cortona. Ho conciliato la mia grande passione per la cucina con l'apertura del mio b&b, e mi piace mettere a disposizione dei miei clienti cene con prodotti tipici.

Maison malheureusement en bord de route , MAIS, pas de nuisances sonore intérieure en octobre ( hors saison). B&B aménagé avec beaucoup de goût, salle-de bain privée très fonctionnelle. Claudia est une hôte charmante. Il faut juste lui rappeler qu'en Octobre il faut allumer le chauffage de la chambre mais surtout de la salle-de-bain. A côté de cela, lorsque l'on voit le petit déjeuner ultra varié, important et délicieux, on oublie le petit frisson au sortir du lit et celui de la salle-de-bain du matin. B&B à 6 minutes des remparts de la ville. Très facile. Allez-y !!!!
Rooms were big and beautiful and the Claudia and Paola were very kind. Breakfast was delicious. The location was beautiful. No Regrets.
Claudia welcomed us on arrival and had us settled in to a beautiful room very quickly. The place was absolutely beautiful and was probably the most relaxing part of our holiday. It was definitely one of the most beautiful places we have been to. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay Claudia!
Claudia and her family were super friendly and helpful.
The photos of the B&B are spot on. It's gorgeous.
We definitely had some mixed experiences traveling around Italy and our time in Cortona was a standout. Picturesque, ideally located for visiting Cortona and experiencing Tuscany.
This B&B in Siena was charming and perfectly located for exploring the city, with Il Campo and the Duomo both seconds away on foot. Two of my favorite meals in Italy also a stones throw from the B&B. Charming room, great shower, great noise canceling window insulation on a raucous Saturday night. Free wifi and a lovely breakfast buffet made this a very nice stay.
Everything at Il Sole del Sodo was just as I had imagined staying in Italy to be. No room for improvement necessary.
I loved that the pictures on airbnb were very accurate. The room was appointed just as the picture showed and was even more charming in person. I loved that the host's sister was in charge while we were there with her husband and two children and the kids were the loveliest little things to watch and listen to. I loved the breakfast in the morning; very good espresso and cookies. Best of all, I loved the recommendation for where to eat in Cortona...it was fantastic. I wish we had more days...thank you Claudia for a wonderful and honest stay.
Il sole del sodo is a lovely place, Claudia is very friendly and pleasant. Breakfast was very good with cakes, fruit, yogurt, etc. And do have a meal in the evening there, Claudia is an excellent cook!
Hello Rita ,
I didn't forget about the recipe as soon as possible i will send it to you !
Ciao and all the best to you and your husband ,
We loved our stay at Il Sole del Sodo! Claudia was a gracious, welcoming and very helpful host in every way. Right from the beginning she kindly and patiently helped us with driving directions when we had a hard time finding her b & b. She was very available whenever we had questions, and yet gave us space to relax and just enjoy. The breakfasts were fabulous - some of the best we had in Italy -with a variety of cereals, fruit, yogurt, breads and sweets along with teas and delicious cappuccinos made to order! You can enjoy breakfast on the patio or in the breakfast room, which conveniently has wifi.
We would highly recommend the room with the terrace, we think it is her best room with more light, a lovely view and in the best condition. As others have mentioned Il sole del Sodo is a little run down and rustic so not quite as pictured, but it still has great charm, lovely grounds and patios, a great location at the foot of Cortona, and Claudia is a lively and lovely host with impeccable English! We had a very comfortable stay and actually ended up staying an extra night!
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.
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!
Claudia's parents had a rough start as they didn't closely read my Airbnb advertisement. The first and biggest issue was the NYC law that requires residents to "reside" in the property, thus my daily non intrusive visit between 1pm and 2:30pm. Use of the apartment during this time remains my right, indeed my legal responsibility. They couldn't understand and accept this due to cultural differences, and were not shy about expressing disappointment. But, because my goal is to ensure all of my guests are satisfied, I did multiple things. First, to appease her fathers demand that my cat not be in the house, I relocated him during their stay. On the first day, addressed their concern over cat urine odor by thoroughly re-cleaning the flat AND to ensure this won't happen anymore, had François neutered. They were further frustrated because of a key situation whereas I was temporarily operating with one key. As a solution, I installed a coded key lockbox next to the door... This minor inconvenience was annoying to her dad but we made it work. To ensure their overall happiness, I also treated them to maid service and gave them a luxury Uber SUV car service to JFK ($130 value) on their departure day.
Overall, there was a lack of communication that lead misunderstandings that would have easily been avoided had they thoroughly reviewed my ad before making the reservation.
That said, they were clean, quiet, responsible, and respectful guests. After the initial frustrations, which were really just an unfortunate part of buyers remorse due to not reading all of the details, they because pleasant. On the last day they really warmed up to me and we sat around and talked about all of these issues.
Her father surprised me and suggested his other daughter would like to stay in my flat later this year... And that they maybe interested in doing a swap -- I've always wanted to visit Rome.
I would gladly host the Toppani's again, especially now that everyone has a clear understanding of how things work (:
