A wonderful place to stay as a family if you enjoy visiting the sights (Sienna 40 mins away, Florence 1H15) but want some relaxing days as well; our teens loved the 14m pool (well maintained). Amidst fields of sunflowers, in view of historic Cortona, our large country style flat was clean, comfortable and simply decorated. There were two bedrooms, but It is possible to sleep two more on the sofa bed if you don't mind being a bit cramped ! The kitchen was small but equiped with the basics. However if you plan on doing any cooking, do pack some essentials (salt and pepper, a few herbs, matches etc to avoid buying everything on arrival). The owner was available and helpful in case of problems or questions. There are four other flats on site (possibilities for groups of friends, who still want some privacy), children's play area, ping pong table and a laundry room. Supermarkets and restaurants within 8-10km. We spent two weeks here; just the right balance of visiting (Tuscany and Umbria) and pool days. Although at 900 euros a week, it wasn't a cheap rental, we would recommend it as good value for money. Don't forget the mosquito repellant/ bite creams if you are susceptible ; it is the countryside!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- As of 2017, the «Agriturismo Case Sant'Anna» has been completely renovated. We have made structural changes to the interior and created a large space that can comfortably house 14-18 beds, and is ideal for large groups of friends and family. During the renovation, special attention was given to maintaining the architectural authenticity of Tuscan homes, while also enhancing the modern amenities (such as A/C and modern kitchen appliances). The Agriturismo is strategically located so that it is convenient to reach the many artistic cities in Tuscany and nearby Umbria. From the vantage point of the swimming pool, one can admire a panoramic view of the ancient and picturesque town of Cortona, just a few minutes drive away. The entire estate is surrounded by a beautiful garden of olive trees and Tuscan foliage. Adjacent to the pool is a ping-pong table, a foozball table, a swing for children and a jacuzzi pool, ideal for those wishing a totally relaxing vacation. ... more less
