Perfect B&B to explore Cortona. Warm and friendly service, excellent breakfast and large clean rooms. Excellent location close to center and restaurants. Make sure you stroll around at night or early in the morning.

This was the most beautiful B&B I've ever been to. Luckily I came to Cortona in January so I was able to get a room at Dolce Maria. Based on the reviews by previous guests, I had made a request to stay in the Torcetta room to have access to the private rooftop terrace. However upon my arrival, the owner... More

I arrived with my 18 y/o son for a two day stay in Cortona. We took Italian lessons at Polymnia with Laura and then had an amazing 3 hour cooking class and meal with Paola, the owner of the B&B. We made bread dough which produced bruschetta, pizza, crostini, foccacia and little rolls, fresh pasta including spinach/ricotta ravioli and tagliatelle... More

This is an amazing place to stay and Paola is an excellent host. The location is close to places to eat and shop; there is even an excellent restaurant on the first floor. The rooms have antique furniture, high wood beam ceilings and plenty of windows to let in the Tuscan sun. Truly a beautiful place to stay. I would... More

Had a lovely 1 night's stay in Cortona at Dolce Maria. Our room was spacious, with large windows, high ceilings and a modern, clean bathroom. The location is very convenient, just steps from the main piazza and great restaurants. We enjoyed a nice breakfast with Paola and her mom, who was a charming host with her delicious apple cake and... More

Parked outside walls and only short walk to B & B. On arrival Paola the owner arranged for her husband to collect our luggage with his car and transport to B&B. We could have easily walked the bags up but he kindly insisted to help us as we had 2 large suitcases. Overall the room was beautifully appointed with many... More

My husband and I stayed at this lovely B&B for two nights recently and loved it! Our room was very private, beautifully appointed and included a private terrace with an amazing panoramic view (accessible by a steep, narrow, spiral stairway, but who cares?It was worth it!). The central location is quite convenient and close to the Piazza della Repubblica, and... More
