My fiancé and I had a wonderful experience at Il Sole del Sodo. Claudia was very helpful and welcoming, and she was always quick to address any concerns we had. When we arrived we were given a room without air-conditioning, which we were not too happy with given the heat. However, she upgraded us to a beautiful suite for a... More

Our stay at il sole del sodo was beyond expectation. It was quiet, quaint, and in a perfect location. Claudia is a splendid host. The meals offered were delicious! We will definitely be back to visit! If you can, take a cooking class here! It was one of our highlights!

The place is marvelous- the host couple are completely courteous and very friendly. The place is a dream. Edgar the dog is very playful. The breakfast delicious and very nice. All in the room had a dream view. I will return with out a doubt. It's a dream.

A truly wonderful experience in Tuscany. The grounds, the rooms, the staff and the hosts, Claudia and her Husband could not have been more charming. Every need and attention to detail was considered with the most friendly and hospitable manner making a trip for a 5 with 3 separate rooms not only easy but luxurious feeling. I cannot recommend Il... More

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. I would recommend a visit as this place is truly a little piece of heaven, so peaceful and serene. Cannot wait to go back!

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... More

There is precious parking in the back among the olive trees. As you walk from the olive grove to the front entrance make sure you nibble... More
