We where recommended this villa from a couple that have a cooking business in Cortona and Australia. Absolutely fabulous. We were held up in a traffic accident and where late on arrival, but we were welcomed with open arms and a basket of goodies. The villa was all that you could ask for and more. The only down was the horrible road up to the villa, but this also grew on us daily.
The villa has every thing that you would want and more.
We would highly recommend this villa to anyone and everyone who wishes for a holiday away from the busy lives we all lead.
