“beautiful hillside in the middle of all the great Tuscan / Umbrian places to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013 for a stay in September 2012

I have been here every year over the last few years. it is one of my favourite places in the world to visit. I love its situation on the side of a beautiful hillside which is quiet and rural and yet close to so many Tuscan (and Umbrian) sites - Cortona on the doorstep, then Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi, Siena, Orvieto, Florence etc.
The house has been lovingly restored, including its original terracotta floors, by Louise who is an archeologist and painting restorer. Its has a great garden and generous sized swimming pool. There are wonderful walks from the house along the fire break and over the hillside. if it isn't too hot the walk up to Cortona is amazing with vistas for miles.
