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

This intimate B&B has everything you could want for a visit to Cortona. Located in a beautifully restored palazzo just a few minutes away from Cortona's main piazza, the guest rooms are full of the charm and character you would hope for when visiting this lovely medieval city. And for a town that can be expensive, it's surprisingly affordable given... More

I stayed at Dolce Maria for four nights and was delighted by the rooms and service I received. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for the family whether keeping your coffee topped up or enjoying the homemade jams available and making sure the free wifi works. I would heartily recommend staying there.
