“A True "GEM" in Tuscany”
Reviewed January 7, 2016 for a stay in September 2015

What a magical stay for 5 couples exploring the countryside in Tuscany. A modern facility with that old world charm. The main quarters had 4 unique bedrooms, dining area, cooking area, lounging area and game room with pool table. Outside were grilling area, 2 swimming pools and patio area for night-time gathering. Each bedroom had its own bathroom with shower while 3 of the rooms had a tub and one room had a shower with steam. There was also a bathroom downstairs in the lounge/gaming area. I mentioned 2 pools, one of the pools also had a cottage with sleeping quarters and lounge and cooking area. With 5 couples we made full use of the main house and cottage. we were located at the end of a road over looking the entire valley, a view that must be seen to fully appreciate. The owners were very accommodating and met all of our requests with a smile. We had them cook for us on our final night stay in their home and that experience was just an extra special stamp on a fabulous week.

The walled town of Cortona, a "GEM" in itself was a 10 minute walk up a hill. You'll need your walking shoes and should be in fairly good shape for this worthwhile journey. Of course, you can request a taxi for the short trip if you prefer.The town is just one of the many wonderful experiences of this area. We found 3 restaurants that satisfied our group and tastebuds. The average cost per couple for dinner was around $60 including wine, appetizers and desserts.

From the villa you can take trips to Florence, Venice, Assisi, Montalicino and many other wonderful towns and villages. We did wine and lunch tours that were enjoyed by all. Set up trips through the villa or in advance if you wish.

May I suggest not overloading your trip with day trips so that you can fully enjoy your accommodations and the swimming pools in season. We had at least 3 dinners in our villa that we prepared. One night we went into town and bought pork chops, steaks and lamb from the butcher and grilled outside. With salad and potatoes as a side the whole group ate for about $80 US.

I could go on and on but please check out this place for yourself and I can tell you that your trip will be as magical as ours.
