Simonetta is bravisimo...her B&B is quaint, clean, relaxing, homey, comfortable, gorgeous gardens, refreshing pool...perfect breakfast. I wish we could have stayed longer. We loved Dante, who is a bit of a watch dog if you come home late!! ;o) and the rest of the animals---such a lovely time. Simonetta's cakes and preserves are not to be missed in the mornings!!...

What we appreciated most about this place were the pretty views. Simonetta (hostess and chef) was kind to us and we sampled some of her tasty cuisine - she shared recipe for the eggplant flan - (soooo good!) Montepulciano is approximately 45 minutes away - Cortona heart is about 25 minutes from B&B as is Avignonesi winery. Our stay at... More

Tuscany at its best .... rural setting with amazing views and superb food and well appointed rooms throughout. Simonetta and Guido have created and maintain a superb environment to relax into Tuscan life. We spent a very enjoyable afternoon taking the cooking course and had a lot of fun learning how to create ravioli, vegetable strudel, duck with orange and... More

This little gem outside of Cortuna should absolutely not be missed. This family owned B&B offers spacious rooms, a lovely garden and a pool to cool off. Stay also for a high dining experience in a romantic setting. The owners are welcoming and professional, giving you great advice on the region's highlights.

We absolutely loved our stay with Simonetta and Guido, Dante, Trili and Belle! Simonetta was very helpful and gave us some great suggestions on where to go during our 3days in town and gave two fantastic recommendations for gelaterias which did NOT disappoint! The highlight of our visit was a cooking class we took with Simonetta. She made the entire... More

We had an incredible day cooking at this wonderful location in Tuscany. Set in the beautiful countryside outside Cortona. Simonette has a comfortable and welcoming home from which she holds cooking classes and has a B&B. We cooked a five course meal with Simonette and she was warm, amusing and informative about the food of Italy and the region. Beautiful... More

This farmhouse was everything we hoped for and more! We were greeted by Simonetta who was so warm, welcoming, informative and by the end of our 3 night stay felt like family. Her fury friends Dante and Trili were also around and captured my heart. Every day Simonetta took the time to ask us what our plans were and if... More

Having read the great reviews before our visit we had very high expectations at Casa Bellavista. Finding it after sundown was half the fun. GPS didn't work about a km before we arrived but Google maps did. Simonetta and Guido were 100% as everyone described. As ex professional hotel managers they of course were well experienced in looking after guests,... More

From the moment we pulled up to Casa Bellavista, Simonetta made sure we felt welcomed and at home. Everything was perfect - the scenery was amazing, the rooms were spacious and clean, the setting was very relaxing and Dante and Treely (the dogs) were sweet and loving. On our first day, we took a cooking lesson with Simonetta. The lesson... More
