“An amazing trip and a special place”
Reviewed August 20, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

we stayed here for 2 weeks with 3 related families (total of 10 people including 4 kids under 11) and it was just about perfect. The house is just amazing -- it is beautifully restored with all the modern amenities. the bedrooms are all large and comfortable and the beds are so comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped so if you love to cook this is the place for you and there is a wonderful outdoor grill and pizza oven - we used them a lot. But its the outdoor space that will grab you. The views are breathtaking and there are so many great areas to just watch it all and eat outdoors. Also, you will not see any other house or anyone else nearby. Chuck and his wife are amazing hosts. They will interact with you as little or as much as you like. They have plenty of great recommendations for restaurants and tours. It was just a magical stay and i would say to anyone that if you are looking for a special place to stay this is it.

“An amazing way to experience the true heritage of Tuscany/ Cortona”
Reviewed June 21, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This was an amazing 400 year old home with all the conveniences we are used too. The interior stone throughout the entire home was an added charm. The mountain views/ sunsets were picturesque !!! Chuck ( the owner) was easy to deal with and made our stay problem free. His restaurant recommendations and pre arranged taxi service were prompt and attentive. Well worth the extra expense to be chauffeured all over town. Truly an authentic taste of Italy never to be forgotten. The wineries and olive mill tours were great too !!!!
