The first thing you encounter in Cortona is Massimo and he makes you love it already. He is the nicest guy, makes you feel at home, and tells you all you need to know about Cortona. We had the top floor room so there was a bit of a walk up the stairs, but really not a problem. The room... More

When we arrived, Massimo helped us with our luggage and then told us about the area. He was extremely friendly and provided great customer service. The room was very charming and included a kitchen, dining table, and couch. It was tastefully decorated, as was the stairs leading up to the rooms. It was centrally located, and breakfast was a short... More

My sister and I came to visit my daughter who was attending UGA in Cortona. We were there about 8 days. we did the 2 room with kitchen on the second floor....which is actually the third floor as there is no first floor (or elevator) For me it was difficult as I am a substantial woman with bad knees. That... More

We just returned from a magical stay in Cortona at Rugapiana Vacanze. We stayed in one of the apartments, which had a full kitchen, dining table, couch, entryway and spacious bedroom all tastefully decorated in Tuscan charm - we even had a small washing machine! It was great to come back with leftovers from our meals and snack on them... More

We booked the two bedroom apartment - and it was beautiful. Wonderfully kept and fantastically decorated. We slept in the back bedroom, and my Mother had the front room, which she said was a little noisy, but nothing to stop her sleeping at all. After reading previous reviews, we were aware of the stairs up to the room, but they... More

Massiamo gave us a fabulous greeting. He was very friendly and helpful and recommended a great wine bar which we went to nearby which also has free wifi. Our room was just what we needed after a very rainy grey day. It was large, comfortable and warm and beautifully decorated, very luxurious I thought. It had a TV fridge and... More

My boyfriend and I spent one night here and absolutely loved it. The room was cozy and spacious. We kept saying how we felt like we were at home. The breakfast was also very good and everyone involved in our stay very nice. I would love to come back to Cortona and stay here again.

We loved Cortona but not our stay at Rugapiana Vacanze. To start with we choose an apartment rather than a B&B room because of the availability of a washing machine. Upon checking-in Massimo informed us that the washing machine was broken. Seeing our disappointment he stated that a new one might be delivered the next day which was Sunday -... More

Hi from Cortona We sincerely don't understand what was the problem during your stay here. We have offered an Apartment Deluxe, even if your original booking was for a Standard Room. It was our gift to you, at no additional costs, the washing machine was broken and it was immediately repaired but it was impossible to do during your stay,... More

We (four adults, two couples) stayed in one of the two bedroom apartments. The location is on Via Nazionale so was easy to walk to everything in Cortona. It is on the main street, but if you close the windows it is quiet inside. Massimo was very easy to work with reservation and answering questions. The apartment had everything we... More
