    Cortona
    |
    Condo/Apartment – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    The house, made by stones, consists of living room with a converteble sofa-bed and a breath taking view of the Val di Chiana Valley, full kitchen with breakfast cristal table and the same view of the living room plus pantry with washing machine. Bathroom with shower, bidet, sink and toilette, bedroom with queen size bed and a big wardrobe/closet, window on the characteristic 'Vicolo San Michelangelo'.

    The house has been completely renovated in May 2009, taking care of any little particular and mixing the old Tuscan style with a modern touch.

    Cortona is famous as the inspiration and setting for the book Under the Tuscan Sun, (that later became a movie) written by American writer-novelist Francis Mayes.

    It also homes a branch of the Georgia University - USA, for artistic matters....

We just loved our stay in the "Under the Tuscan Sun" apartment. It is conveniently located just outside Cortona's ancient city walls, with only a 5-10 minute walk to the center of town. Free parking is nearby. The apartment is beautifully furnished and has a great view of the Tuscan countryside. The owners/hosts, who live next door, are very friendly... more

We love the layout and decided to bring... more
