“Heaven in Tuscany”
Reviewed June 10, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We have stayed here on 4 or 5 occasions and fall in love with it again every time we visit. It is in the heart of one of the most beautiful areas of Tuscany - Cortona - an 11th century stunning hill town [where Under the Tuscan Sun was filmed] surrounded by truly magnificent countryside and restaurants.
Augusto who owns the property speaks virtually fluent English and couldn't be more helpful. He is always contactable by phone and happy to book taxis or restaurants for us. The pool is immaculately clean and the most peaceful place in the world. I just can't recommend this place more highly for a truly wonderful holiday.

There is a washing machine, dishwasher, sunbeds [with sun shades], books - just everything at hand. The grounds are perfectly tended and everywhere clean and tidy. Lemons and figs in abundance on the trees.

I would say a car is definitely needed but only to drive up to the town which takes 5 mins [but would be a fairly arduous walk]. Camucia train station a 4 min drive with trains regularly to everywhere in Italy. We often got the train to Florence for the day.

Heaven on earth. A magnificent holiday AGAIN

“Villa Augusto. Great location, antique and artistic”
Reviewed June 29, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Staying in Villa Augusto is an unusual experience. All the time you are surrounded by the antique art starting with paintings on the walls, the furniture from the Renaissance in the rooms, the Margherita of Cortona statue and other made look aged statues around buildings of the Villa Augusto.

We enjoyed long walks in the area, dining outside and the friendliness of the owner. The bedroom was ok but still it was an interesting feeling like you are sleeping in a museum. The only thing we missed was the washing machine but the owner himself took our laundry and brought it next morning washed and even ironed. Thank you, Augusto!
