We stayed there in June 15 from a recommendation from Trip Advisor. The friendly welcome and ambience that we felt from Claudia was amazing. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we would always recommend as the place to stay in Cortona. Location was great, cooking class excellent and our memories will last a life time, thanks Claudia!

If you are really looking to enmesh yourself into the Italian culture and experience the passion and charm and excitement of Italy, do yourself a favor and book a stay at this little gem. It is run by two local sisters who will embrace you and enhance your stay like no others. Yes, I have stayed at 5 star establishments... More

We stayed at this delightful B&B back in 2009 - not in 2014 as stated - but I can't resist capturing my memories here for others to share. Anna, our hostess for the duration of our stay, was the owner's younger sister. She made us feel very welcome and explained points of interest in the gorgeous little Etruscan township of... More

Always on hand to help. Beautiful clean room in renovated traditional local building. Really enjoyed the garden for morning breakfast. The hotel allowed us to use their books, maps for travel around Tuscany. It's really close to the train station for trips to Florence or Rome. Very close also to Cortona. We experienced positive, friendly and welcoming atmosphere throughout our... More

This is a beautful bed and breakfast, full of authenic character and Tuscan charm. The garden is lovely with outdoor tables to enjoy your meals al fresco. The owner and her staff were fantastic - so helpful and friendly - even when we mistakenly wandered into the owner's private lounge and made ourselves at home! If you are visiting Cortona,... More

A lovely B&B at the foot of Cortona. Claudia is a knowledgeable and charming hostess who also happens to be wonderful cook, If she offers dinner, which she did the afternoon we arrived, don't pass it up! Wonderful breakfasts with fresh cakes, a great jumping off spot for exploring both Tuscany and Umbria, then coming back to relax in the... More

Il sole del Sodo is a beautiful bed and breakfast. The grounds are beautiful, the entrance and the garden seating area and the pool/poolside were really very peaceful and quiet, but also still very close to town and also close to the main road which meant driving in was relatively easy. There is parking provided behind the property in some... More

My Wife and I went to Tuscany for 7 nights and booked no accommodation after the first night. Went to the tourist Office in Cortona and they directed us to Il sole Del Sodo. We took an apartment next to the B&B of which there are 5 or 6 and we were delighted with the accommodation. Il Sole Del Sodo... More

We stayed at Il Sole del Sodo during our honeymoon after a recommendation from a friend and we were thrilled to have been so lucky. The B&B was really wonderful, charming, rustic, comfortable, and quiet. Our room had a comfortable front sitting room, small kitchenette and modern bathroom. The bed was great and we slept like rocks after long days... More
