We stayed here for a week in the beginning of September 2012 about 3 weeks ago so I'm finally getting to my review, We stayed for a week with another couple and we rented an apartment on the ground floor which included a VERY large common area with kitchen, two separate bedrooms with bathrooms, (showers). Fridge, stove, AC,microwave, although we didn't do any cooking. The rooms were large and beds comfortable. The grounds are huge as they have about 300 acres which they farm sunflowers to produce sunflower oil. We also had our own kind of gazebo outside our room, to hang out and drink wine, and more wine, you ARE in Italy. Built in pool also but we didn't use it as it wasn't that hot. The best thing about staying here is the location, about 10 minutes from Cortona, and a good central location to visit Umbria and Tuscany. Paulo and his family are very friendly and knowledgable of the area. Marco, his son speaks English very well so this may help you alot. My wife speaks Italian so she was the designated translator as Paulo had many interesting stories, (he is Italian) he doesn't speak English.
This is an old restored farm house and we loved it. They serve dinner a few nights a week in the restaurant where they serve breakfast. It's not open to the public, they just cook for the guests. We had breakfast outside every morning as the weather was beautiful. Dinner was outside one night also. Breakfast was very good as they had a kind of buffet with pastries, yogurts, cakes, some meats, fruits, juices, eggs and other stuff. Plenty to eat and good. The restaurant is restored with the vaulted ceilings and old stonework. Had Very Good dinners there along with their own label wine . Paulo and Marco also do the serving, everything was fantastic. Also it is VERY peaceful and quiet!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED would love to stay there again.
We visited many small towns in the area, if you need info on where to go and eat let me know.
