Villa Valenza is a great place to stay in Cortona – a little bit away from the town in a quiet beautiful location. We stayed for 8 nights in the apartment and enjoyed the hospitality of Alessandro. The apartment is spacious and clean, the breakfast is good, and the common areas inside outside are perfect for relaxing. The B&B has its own small pool but also offers free access to the town pool just a couple of minutes walk away. We would definitely recommend Villa Valenza to anyone visiting Cortona.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set in charming green surroundings only a stone’s throw from the centre of Cortona Villa Valenza offers bed & breakfast service and tourist apartments with swimming-pool and restaurant. The villa is located in a quieter and less known part of Cortona, the "Parterre," a promenade leading from the historical centre to the hilltop, the fortress of Girifalco and the sanctuary of Santa Margherita. From the historical centre you will be able to get to Villa Valenza with a five minute stroll down the promenade of Parterre (closed off to traffic). The villa can also be reached by car driving to the top of the hill and taking a turn down to the sporting facilities in Torreone. You will get to the villa after driving down a winding cypress-lined road going around the western side of the hill. The villa was originally built in the mid 1900s and was recently converted to house a bed & breakfast (rooms with private bathroom) as well as holiday apartments for 2 to 4 guests. The building is spread over two floors and has private parking. The swimming-pool located next-door is open to the general public from May through to September and is part of a large sporting complex including also tennis courts (open both in the summer and in the winter) and a five-a-side court. ... more less
