“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

We where recommended this villa from a couple that have a cooking business in Cortona and Australia. Absolutely fabulous. We were held up in a traffic accident and where late on arrival, but we were welcomed with open arms and a basket of goodies. The villa was all that you could ask for and more. The only down was the horrible road up to the villa, but this also grew on us daily.
The villa has every thing that you would want and more.
We would highly recommend this villa to anyone and everyone who wishes for a holiday away from the busy lives we all lead.

Il Nido is a wonderful place to escape from busy lives to get away from it all. With seclusion and privacy the house and pool surround by olive groves is perfect. Breath-taking views across the valley toward Montepulciano and beyond make eating out on either of the terraces a joy. The house is located within easy distance of many of Itlay's amazing sites. Day trips are possible to Rome, Pisa, Florence and Sienna, and then there an many other amazing places to visit closer, Assisi, Cortona, Perugia, Gubbio.
The house and pool were great for our family of four, the boys enjoyed exploring the garden for hours, when they were not splashing around in the private pool.
The house itself has everything you could ever need, the kitchen has many home comforts. The antique furniture through out has been restored beautifully and makes it feel very welcoming.
We stayed in the house during a very hot period, daily temp unseasonably hot at up to 40degrees but the house remained cool. With the beautiful fire place in the sitting room though we could imagine that it would also be a wonderful cozy winter get away - very romantic!
The owners are only to willing to help out with local knowledge for where to visit or eat or buy the best produce. They left use a basket of goodies on our arrival, including local wine, olive oil (made from olives grown at il Nido and biscuits and treats for the children.
I would recommend this house to many of my friends and family.
