We spent the most amazing weekend at this beautiful place. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and genuinely treated us like family, nothing was too much trouble, it was like visiting your favourite Aunt.

This gorgeous and intimate Italian farmhouse location gave us one of the best trips away we've ever had. The setting is stunning and the staff are unbelievably friendly. The surrounding countryside and hilltop village of Cortona took our breath away, as did the stunning views of the lake and mountains. The food at the B&B was some of the best...

Our property is named after the neighborhood in which it is located and the sunshine that illuminates our gardens during the day. We offer the ideal holiday location, making our property the perfect base for daytrips to valleys and charming towns in close proximity to Cortona - from Valdichiana to Val D'Orcia, Montalcino to Pienza, spas to churches frescoed by Piero della Francesca and to nearby Umbria with its enchanting landscapes. ... more   less
