We chose this inn based on reviews on TripAdvisor. The inn is just beautiful, the property gorgeous and a great swimming pool which we were able to enjoy even though it was October! Our room was spacious and very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent with a good variety of offerings. The inn is located in the valley below the mountain village of Cortona and a bit hard to find from the autostrada. However, we did have a GPS which got us to the establishment. Cortona is on the southern end of Tuscany, really closer to Umbria. However, it is a great location for a base to tour Tuscany. There is a train station located about 7-8 minutes away where you can catch a train to Florence or Rome. The staff was extremely helpful and recommended two excellent restaurants, one in the walled village of Cortona and the other just 2 minutes down the street--both the best meals we ate in Italy. They also assisted us with Mapquest directions to our next location. It was the least expensive hotel of our stay and probably the best overall. Will definitely return on our next trip
