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

We stayed here for two nights in the apartment that looked out onto the pool. The apartment had a clean and modern bathroom, a bedroom with Italian TV , an area to hang clothes ,and a small kitchen/ dining /living room. The sofa converted to make an extra double bed. As you would expect for the area, the style of... More

We stayed for 3 nights in May in a small room with a balcony overlooking the courtyard. The room was OK but had no comfortable place to sit. Since the weather was uncharacteristically cold and rainy for May in Italy, we spent more time in the room than we normally would have, so the lack of comfort was a problem.... More

We spent four enjoyable days at Il Sole del Sodo. We had a "suite", a very small bedroom and a sitting room. The furnishings were "rustic" (though the bathroom was strictly modern) but pleasant. The B&B is located down the hill to the north of Cortona proper in an olive grove. It was just a few minutes drive up the... More

My partner of 23 years and I were guests at Il Sole del Sodo for 5 nights at the start of September this year. We arrived late at night after a zippy 2 1/2 hour drive from Pisa airport. Jim and Paula our hosts stayed up late to greet us with big hugs and smiles and a light dinner to... More

Amazing place to spend some quiet time. I booked this B&B after a business trip on my way home. I was met by Jim (host) at the train station and he gave me a ride to the B&B, which was only a few minutes away. Jim & Paula are amazing hosts and went well out of their way to make... More
