“Absolutely wonderful!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

We stayed at Casa Bellavista last summer during our family vacation and it was absolutely wonderful. The house is impeccable and the surroundings are beautiful. The rooms are large, with comfortable beds and lovely decorations; the bathrooms are big and very clean. Simonetta is a phenomenal host and makes you feel at home from the moment you arrive. The food is delicious, from the amazing breakfast display to the terrific dinners she and her husband Guido made for us. We truly felt like home away from home. The kids enjoyed the pool and gardens along with Trilli and Dante the well-behaved dogs. My older kids became friends with their own teenage children. Simonetta is very helpful with day trip planning to nearby towns and gives great advise on restaurants and places to visit.
Our vacation could not have been better. The peacefulness of being in the middle of Tuscany, the gorgeous sunsets and the clear starry nights along with the wonderful hosts made this place one we can’t wait to go back. Thank you so much Simonetta and Guido !!!

My friend and I returned a few weeks ago from a trip to Italy, and were delighted with our stay at Casa Bella Vista. Simonetta and Guido were charming, warm, welcoming and very helpful. The food was amazing, the ambience so charming -- and the other guests delightful. Guido and Simonetta really know their food and wine. My friend and I took a few cooking classes that were just terrific. Simonetta is so knowledgeable about food and it's preparation -- and her classic Tuscan fare is superb. Guido's knowledge of wine was outstanding and he referred us to a local winery that was just lovely. The room was terrific, the dogs lovely :-) we not only felt at home, it was a magical place all around. We will definitely be back! Grazie mille Simonetta and Guido!

We just got back from our stay in Italy which included two nights at Casa Bellavista. We are so glad we chose to stay with Simonettta and Guido during our time in Cortona. It truly felt like a home away from home with such comfortable surroundings and their two lovely dogs. Simonetta gave us wonderful recommendations on places to eat in the neighborhood and different places to visit during our stay. The grounds of this property are absolutely amazing and the rooms are very clean and styled to the smallest detail. We loved this place and can't wait to go back someday.

I decided to book Casa Bellavista for our group of 4 because it just looked so beautiful from the pictures and also the reviews. We were not disappointed!

We arrived at night and Simonetta drove out to meet us so we could find the house. Even in the darkness of the night, when we arrived at the driveway of the house, we were so happy to be there. It was warm and inviting and so were the hosts and even their energetic pets (2 dogs and 1 cat). Our rooms were lovely and distinctive.

During our 3 night stay, Simonetta gave us suggestions on where to go as we wanted to make day trips to Siena and Cortona and also helped arrange for a local winery visit, which was off the beaten path (my favorite).

However, what may be the best service I have ever gotten anywhere happened on the day we left the B&B to head to Rome Fiumicino as someone in our group needed to catch a flight back to Asia. We had driven about 2 hours to the airport and we had almost dropped off the car, when I received a call from Guido. He said that someone had left her passport at the B&B (OMG). Immediately, we were all taken aback. What to do? Guido offered to have someone drive out to the airport (2 hours) to drop off the passport. The driver arrived almost 3 hours later, we got back the passport and although he did not ask for any money we of course gave some as a token of our appreciation.

A great big GRAZIE to Guido and Simonetta for their help and generosity on this trip!!

We found Casa Bellavista on TripAdvisor and we couldn't have been more pleased with the six nights we stayed there. This beautiful B&B, situated near Cortona, is a perfect location for exploring Tuscany and Umbria. Our hosts, Simonetta and Guido, went out of their way to make our stay perfect and accommodated our every need. We ate dinner there twice and had some of our best meals while on our 2-week trip through Italy. We loved everything about the place and give it a solid recommendation.

It isn't intent here to create unrealistically high expectations for others, but our stay at Casa Bellavista near Cortona was the best of our B&B stays anywhere on this, our first trip to Italy. The house, it's location and surroundings, the meals, hammocks, dogs and the perfect (for us) bed, all contributed to a wonderful stay here. But it was our hosts, Simonetta and Guido who helped make this the most restful and genuine experience for us. Simonetta would offer helpful sightseeing ideas each morning at breakfast and we loved working with her in the kitchen during our cooking class. Guido then served us our most memorable dinner later that evening with a sunset we couldn't have scripted. No place on earth is perfect, but Casa Bellavista came very close for us. If we were forced to find a nitpick, the shower in the Rose room was a bit tricky to modulate, but anything else has faded from memory. When we plan our next visit to Tuscany, we will find a way to return to Casa Bellavista for a longer stay. It was that good of an experience.
