We were mostly alone when we were swimming or dining in the gazebo. We also ate at their restaurant in town and found the food to be fresh... More

Cledy and Roberto are wonderful hosts. They want nothing more than to make you happy and comfortable. The family restaurant in town is amazing. Have them make you a reservation where you will be treated like royalty!

We had a wonderful week at the Fortezza de Cortesi. Cledy and Roberto are such warm, knowledgeable and welcoming hosts. They went out of their way to make our stay so special. Their home is truly special: a beautifully restored building with all the original features and exquisitely furnished with antique furniture and beautiful fabrics with classical music playing throughout....

Just returned from a short 3 day break at Fortezza de' Cortesi. It was a wonderful few days away from the beaten track, with a real sense that we had found & were living in 'the real' Tuscany. You will never find views like this... sitting under the pergola looking out on the Tuscan hills and San Gimignano is incredible...... More

Thick walls, beautiful views, stone stairs, a vaulted ceiling dining room. Cledy and Roberto were amazingly hospitable, even though we had gotten lost driving from Venice and arrived very late. They even asked a local restaurant to stay open so we could get a late bite to eat. The rooms were cozy, farm house rooms, not cookie cutter big chain... More
