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

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

We enjoyed a wonderful week long stay at the base of the lovely hill town of Cortona, Italy at the lovely Il Sole del Sodo B & B. Upon arrival our hosts (Jim and Paula) went out of their way to make our first trip to Tuscany, a dream come true. Our apartment (the Orange Villini) had a nice living... More

This was my first visit to Tuscany and also my first stay at a B&B. What a terrific experience! Il Sole is located in the heart of Tuscany, nestled away but very close to the Cortona village center. Jim and Paula are wonderful hosts who are focused on making every guest's stay wonderful and memorable - from just relaxing at... More

Stayed at this lovely B&B in the heart of Cortona. Jim and Paula make this a must stay location with their warm hospitality, knowledge of the region, great food and top notch accomodations.
