“A great place to stay in Cortona”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

We stayed at this B&B with two other couples, so we had the place to ourselves, and really enjoyed our time here. It is a good location to be in Cortona as it is within easy walking to the shops, cafes, park, and museums. If you have a car there is parking nearby and you can catch a bus, after a walk down hill, which will take you to the train station (or other towns). A lovely home where we had a great breakfast each morning with tea/cappuccinos (made by Antonella), fresh baked loafs/tarts/croissants/pastries (also made by Antonella), sliced cheese & ham, juice, yogurt, cereal, and fruit!

Upon arriving there we were warmly greeted by Pasquale who was kind enough to carry our luggage up to the rooms. It has lots of (steep) stairs inside so you will need to be able to walk them to and from your bed room. A very nice dining area which even had a table for two to sit on the balcony.

As part of our stay we were able to arrange a Tuscan cooking lesson from Antonella for the three guys and have a meal with the ladies. It was a lot of fun making the ragu, pici (we had all six of us rolling it by hand!), stuffed herb chicken thighs, bruschetta, and custard creme tart for dessert! After ~3hrs of work it time to sit down to a great meal with a couple of bottles of good wine and good company. I would recommend booking a cooking class with Antonella as fun way to spend an afternoon and get a good meal out of it!

We had the privilege of staying in this most beautiful bed and breakfast a few months ago and what an amazing experience it was. I feel it made our trip and was one of the highlights.
Not only was this home immaculate and of the highest standards but the breakfast was fit for a king and queen and the home made biscuit's were to die for.
The rooms were beautiful and what made this even nicer was how lovely the family were.

I would highly recommend that you arrange your travel plans to include this quaint, rustic village and stay in this accommodation as it really was one of the best places I have seen and in a beautiful setting with a really warm atmosphere.

You would not regret it as it really is The Best Of Italy !!
