We were visiting Cortona for a wedding, and stayed for a week at Casa Ambra. Sara helped us plan our stay and was an excellent resource while we were in Cortona. She speaks English very well, which was a help to us, as we (unfortunately) don't speak Italian. Our room was recently renovated, with a modern bathroom, in an older... More

We stayed at the Piazza Passerini apartment for a week in April and thoroughly enjoyed Cortona and the accommodation. We were very pleased with the advice and assistance from Ambra and Sara both prior to our trip and during our stay. We had the privacy of our own apartment with the convenience of emailing them or popping across to their... More

Casa Ambra was very pleasant. Furnished with many lovely Tuscan details. It was great to be right in the center of the charming hill town of Cortona. We enjoyed walking all the up to the top to see the beautiful church. The fortress was closed because we were there in December, but still had a great time. Ambra's family treated... More

Ambra and Sara were wonderful hosts! Casa Ambra was highly recommended to us by friends and we now know why. Both Ambra and Sara were very helpful with our itinerary as we were planning our trip. The apartment was spacious and had all of the kitchen items we needed. It was fun to hang our laundry out of a window... More

Casa Ambra is located in the center of Cortona's old part. We can not imagine a better location in the town. We have stayed in two of Casa Ambra's apartments. We can warmly recommend both of those. Our stays have been 3-5 weeks long, mostly in the autumn during the past 5-6 years. The owner family is very friendly and... More

My family of 5 stayed at Casa Ambra for 5 nights in June. All of us agree that Cortona and Casa Ambra were the best part of our 3 week trip. The apartment was clean, comfortable, and spacious. Sarah and Ambra were available to help us with finding our way around the city, transportation, and suggestions of things to do.... More

In 2009, at a non-profit fund raising event, we bid on and won a week's accommodations at Casa Ambra. In Fall of 2010 we built our first trip to Italy around this week in Cortona and quite simply fell in love with the city and our hosts. Cortona is the perfect launching point to see Florence and many hill towns... More

We spent 3 wonderful days in Cortona and no doubt it had a lot to do with Casa Ambra and our wonderful hosts. Ambra and her daughter, Sarah made us feel very welcomed. They took care of us in every way. They arranged taxis to transport us to and from the train station, made sure we had maps and showed... More

We stayed here for two nights (three days) bringing new friends and celebrating our 1 year anniversary. This apartment is very close Piazza Repubblica with a gorgeous view from our upper bedroom. Split on two levels, we had everything we needed including 2 great-sized bedrooms, wine selection, large living area, and a large, modern bathroom to share. The location puts... More

A friend and I stayed at Casa Ambra in Cortona for a lovely, relaxing week. Not only was our apartment delightful, clean and convenient, but Ambra and her daughter Sarah went out of their way to be helpful in any way they could! It was a delight to stay at Casa Ambra.
