This is an exquisite hotel/b&b in wonderful surroundings run by a very friendly and help full family. We will certainly return in the future. We were given a gift by the family for our anniversary. Highly recommend

We stayed three nights. The room was great, large and spoiling. Breakfest and dinners were tasty. Rates are fare. Neighborhood is excellent. A perfect place for all- adults, families, honey moon etc. Thankyou all for great hospitality.

Words cannot do the place and the people justice from the ladies that clean the rooms and do the the laundry to the owner and especially his son Marco and Erica on reception. Their sole aim is to make your stay as relaxed and peaceful as possible. The breakfast is comprehensive and really sets you for the day, fresh fruits,... More

Our trip to Tuscany was a dream of a lifetime….this 18th century farmhouse was restored with integrity. The grounds were beautiful and you could see Cortona on the mountain in the distance! This was our home for a week with 20 other people from the U.S.A. in early June, 2013. The décor was very simple but charming with modern amenities!... More

We arrived at Le Terre dei Cavalieri after a drive from Rome. Travelling on the right hand side of the road was demanding and stressful for us. When we arrived we received the warmest welcome form Marco the owners son. His English was very good. Our room was not yet ready as we were early, we were offered breakfast at... More

We had such a lovely week here. Everything about the place was good. It is beautifully run by the family, who go out of their way to make ones stay a memorable one. It is in a lovely situation, between the Lago di Trasimeno and Cortona, within easy reach of many other Tuscan towns including Siena. Supper is available about... More

Probably the best place we ever stayed at.. Beautiful Tuscan countryside location, beautiful rooms, great service, and the food is absolutely delicious both at breakfast and dinner. Can't wait to go there again!

We arrived at this estate during a very hot summer and from the mountains in Umbria. Our GPS had difficulty with finding the right location, but the arrival between the sunflowers was a relief. A beautiful estate, restored with great respect for the past. A friendly, multilingual reception, a beautiful room with a perfectly working air conditioning. The fine evening... More

This is a wonderful farmhouse that is fairly conveniently located near Cortona. We have only stayed here for one night and wish we could have stayed much longer. The place was very relaxing and lovely. The room was attached was a common living room / dining area / kitchen that was shared with another room. We were lucky as the... More

Every aspect of our week here was superb and in particular the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff - nothing was too much trouble. The setting was perfect even if the famous sunflowers had gone, but the views were still beautiful and it was very peaceful strolling round the grounds. The grounds have different areas so you could always find... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Our estate consists of a Farmhouse and a Leopoldina built in the 18th century during the extensive reclamation of the Valdichiana by the Grand Dukes of Tuscan. In times past they belonged to the Order of the Knights of St. Stephen and Malta. The Order used to protect the ancient Grand Ducal Farm of Creti and S. Caterina.The restoration of these buildings required some years of works during which the old “cocciopesto” plaster was restablished, walls with the natural stuccoed pigments were painted and where the structure of the fireplaces wee left unchanged, vaults of the old stable were empty and strengthened, columns which define the countryside were stuccoed.Today we can offer you this unique place to enjoy an intense and unrepeatable experience, making you feel part of an environment where things have remained unchanged and the past seems to be brought back to life everyday in its charm and character.You will be able to dine in a kitchen that used to accommodate over thirty people at a time, sleep in the bedroom converted from the old cattle shed where farmers used to spend sleepless nights watching over their cows delivering their calves, sleep in the “tracantone” bed, sleep in the bedroom located in the Loggia or in the bedroom converted from the old dove-tower, a shelter where doves were bred by farmers. Fireplaces will tell you and remind you of stories that were told gathering around them in the cold winter nights.Walls are decorated with paintings and pictures that will explain you old piece of life and tradition. The best images you will be able to behold will come, as if by magic, from the windows opening onto stunning natural settings such as the dark mountains hanging over Cortona, the sweet and seamless country-side and the noble profile of Cortona.Unique observation, scenes and tastes of true peasant life, a restful and relaxing effect, wealth of details interpreting the sense of place.Looking forward to having you here to discover many more things that words can not describe we would like to make a wish: that knocking on our door you may call beauty by its name. ... more   less
