Lovely 1400's house with nice rooms managed by a very friendly and hospitable family. They've created a very warm atmosphere, was feeling like at home. Great place to stay if you wish to experience authentic Tuscany. The restaurant in that place is also worth trying - deliciously cooked Tuscan cuisine. I would certainly return!

This is not my normal type of accommodation - but I found myself staying here briefly as the house we'd rented had some emergency heat/electric issues. The mother (in her late 80's) and daughter team who run this place are delightful. It really is like traveling back in time. Huge bedrooms in an old cavernous palazzo, Comfortable beds and an...

Nice location, very comfortable at the right cost. The owner is very nice and works hard with her staff to create a positive experience. Close proximity to the main shopping and dining locations. Only item this location lacks is an elevator. But you are intrepid travelers correct? And the building is upgraded with good amenities.... Not bad for a built... More

The Famiglia Barboni (Barboni Family) were very warm & gracious hosts. I stayed in the Fenestre room and found it to be spacious, very clean and comfortable. I really enjoyed my visit to Cortona, Italy and I am sure the experience was heightened in no small way by staying at the Dolce Maria B&B. It was also wonderful to be... More

Really enjoyed our stay. The room was large and overlooked the courtyard. We enjoyed several meals at the adjoining restaurant. Breakfast was great. Cappuccino was delicious. Wonderful family run small inn. Great fun to stay in a historic b and b. If you are looking for luxurious accommodations this might not be for you. We loved it and would definitely... More

We had the Fenestre room overlooking the narrow street. Big room, very clean and comfortable, but feeble shower. (Our friends had the Camino room with no such problem) Delightful staff; the owner is a pleasure to talk with - and her mother is so much fun, running the breakfast room with gusto, taking care of you so sweetly - with...

For four nights prior to our wedding in Cortona on 12th September 2015 we had the privilege and pleasure of staying in the Dolce Maria B&B. We were given a large, spacious en-suite room overlooking the front entrance with a romantic four poster bed, which was absolutely perfect and even had a small anti-room where the wedding dress could live...

We spent 2 nights in this lovely B&B after reading a review in Rick Steve's 2014 guidebook for Florence & Tuscany. Located in the center of town we were ideally situated to see the sites. Our room was spacious and very clean. Paola, the owner of the B&B and the restaurant on the first floor, is lovely. She greeted us... More

Extremely charming place in the middle of the medieval setting of Cortona. You will need to park your car in the public parking and walk up the village to get to this place so make sure you travel light. The interior of Dolce Maria is breathtaking with its intricate details and the rooms simply elegant, stylish, comfortable and clean keeping... More
