I can heartily recommend a visit to Rocca di Pierle. The location is stunningly beautiful with breathtaking views. The apartment and gardens were of a high standard and clearly very lovingly maintained. Andrea was a wonderful host and couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. Our holiday was an enjoyable and relaxing experience. You do need a car. There are local shops within a few minutes drive and a variety of restaurants in Cortona and the surrounding villages.
