“An authentic Italian experience that far surpasses our expectations.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 for a stay in October 2011

I brought a group of American travelers to this olive grove for a one-week writing retreat. Louise was an exceptional host, and opened the villa to us like we were family. The rooms were comfortable and beautiful. The kitchen had an old world feel with modern amenities. The grounds were magical, the silvery leaves of the olive trees glistened in the breeze, the vistas across the Tuscan hills gave us endless pleasure, the ambience was perfect. My group was so inspired. I will never forget the experience and I am planning a return trip soon. I highly recommend this property for anyone wishing to stay in Cortona.

“We have been visiting this delightful villa for the last 20 years.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 for a stay in July 2012

We have been visiting this house for the last 20 years. We came here on honeymoon and have been returning, now with children, eversince. One of the best things about here is the delightful owner who is very attentive to visitor's needs. The viila is clean, comfortable and relaxed and has such a wonderful library of books, you can get away without lugging them in your case (although things different now with Kindle). There is a superb swimming pool and garden with plenty of sun loungers. Horse riding and walks in the cool hills above the villa with views of Lake Trasimona.. Car is an absolute necessity. Two minutes away is an excellent supermarket and pizza bar where there are always friendly locals to meet. The magical and beautiful city of Cortona is 20 minutes away and there are several different ways of getting there, worth asking the owner, as fun to take different routes. Owner hugely knowledgable about Art and museums and ask her to tell you about restaurant on the other side of Cortona and also where St Francis of Assisi slept. There is a rather steep staircase going up to the bedrooms so very small children need to be helped.

“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.
