I stayed here with my two little boys back in October 2014! It was absolutely amazing. Clean apartment, beautiful scenery, superb location minutes away from Cortona and other beautiful towns on the south of Tuscany. We easily traveled to Cortona, Monticchiello, Perugia and drove up though the val d'orcia up to Florence to drop off our rental car. Highly recommend... More

This place is so beautiful, quiet and nice. We've been here a couple of times, and we will come back! We had our wedding here now in September, and the surroundings just made it perfect. Donato, the manager, and his wife helped us so much with everything relating to the wedding. They are wonderful people and because of them our... More

We had a wonderful 3-night stay at the Monastero San Silvestro. We stayed in the 3-bedroom apartment. One room had a queen bed and its own bathroom, another bedroom was a Queen bed, and the third were two twin beds. All beds were comfortable and clean. There was another bathroom in the hallway. We enjoyed having the extra space over... More

Looking for a place to stay, there were 4 of us - two were recent college graduates (and they ran on their own schedules), so we chose a 3-bedroom apartment. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the common areas were also nice. I was great having a refrigerator, microwave and stove available for coffee, tea, breakfast and snacks.... More

Excellent location, close to Cortona, Trasimeno lake shore and to the main road to Rome. Very relaxing atmosphere, great rooms, lots of green and a swimming pool. Our host Donato was very helpful in all about the surroundings. Just bring your food and you'll get wonderful vacation.

|We have just come back from 9 days here and had a wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable time. The accommodation is beautifully rustic but with essential mod cons like air conditioning - much needed in the August heat! The location is great, easy to find and just a 5 minute drive from the very lovely Cortona. There was a good choice... More

Stayed here a few days in April. The grounds were gorgeous and the room was charming. Bring your own food and you can make nice meals in the kitchen, which has dishes, pots and pans, etc. Though it was too early in the season for the swimming pool, it looked delightful. Highlights were the beautiful grounds and our host, Donato.... More

Thank you for the time you took to write your review. I couldn't agree more, the whole area surrounding Cortona presents a number of interesting tourist locations. Many of our guests have appreciated our spacious apartments with self-catering kitchens. During Spring and Summer the garden as well as the salt-water pool prove to be invaluable value-added relax facilitating features. Thanks... More
