We stayed for one week in August and it wasn't long enough. The sense of calm and peace staying in the hills was second to none and Andrew and Kate simply added to our stay by being the most helpful, kind yet discreet hosts we could have wanted. The apartment is very comfortable with plenty of space and is equipped...

Kate and Andrew are wonderful and warm hosts. We had the most amazing stay at their home with our two young children in their very spacious and beautiful home. It is set in the most idyllic place with some of the most spectacular views spanning across the horizon right across from their living room! They were very friendly and warm...

About the neighborhood
When not enjoying the tranquil waters of our pool, or walking in the hills, there are numerous places to visit, the nearest of which is the Etruscan hill town of Cortona (12 km) where festivals start at Easter, a colourful affair. From this moment on the pavements cafes hum with life. The Festa of Santa Margarita follows on 22 May, with the Giostro dell'Archidado, or Crossbow Contest, on 9 June, and the Cortona "Mix Festival" 27 July - 4 August - great entertainment with a classical flavour and participation. See our website for this and other links. <BR><BR>July as a whole is the 'archaeological month' with many free activities and guided access to normally restricted sites. There are Roman paving slabs below our house, and one guided archaelogical trail... more

How to get there
Airport: Rome/Pisa/Florence/Preugia: 108.7 mi
Railway: Camucia-Cortona or Terontola-Cortona: 9.9 mi
Ferry: Livorno: 87.0 mi
Cortona is readily accessible by train (hourly service from Florenze and 2 hourly service from Rome) and by car along the autostrada/toll road (3 hours from Rome and 1 hour 30 from Florence). Pisa and Rome Fiumicino airports are connected by rail and are served by most of the main airlines. Perugia (irregular services) and Rome Ciampino are served by Ryanair. <BR>Guests are recommended to hire their car when booking their flights, since local rates do not compare favourably and the only multi national car hire firm with a Cortona/Camucia office is Sixt. <BR>We produce tailored directions for you, taking into account your mode of transport and starting point in Italy, including a supermarket detour in Camucia. Once at Cortona, these tailor made directions will bring you into the... more
