"Excellent place to stay"

Fabulous holiday destination. Michele can't do enough to accommodate. Great place, pool is fantastic. Lots of little extras making it almost hotel quality. 5* Only slight quibble, living space not quite enough for four.
Cortona is a wonderful place to visit and plenty of restaurants to eat at.

"Exceeded expectations - high spec traditional Villa"

In breif - a beautiful villa, great value and we hope to return!

In detail -

We missed our motorway exit (entirely our fault - enjoying the views and not reading the signs!) but DON'T miss it - you have to travel for miles before the next exit. However Michelle kept in touch with us and waited for us at the Motorway exist to guide us straight to the Villa - he was friendly and welcoming and not at all annoyed that we were so late.

On arrival at the Villa we were delighted by the quality finish of the exterior and interior, and surprised by hotel level finishing touches including robes, slippers, shampoo etc - you could travel here on hand luggage as they provide everything you need bar clothing!

It has some houses around but still maintains a lot of privacy and the views of the valley are beautiful. It's on a quiet lane but very accessible from the main roads meaning you can access lots of beautiful Tuscan towns on day trips, and it's a short drive to the 4th largest lake in Italy which has Kite surfing, pedaloes etc. There is some road noise but it was barely noticable.

The Villa is situated in a spacious plot with a lovely pool, at a depth of 1m - 2m, there's a covered terrace to retreat from the baking sun and a big BBQ for evening meals. It is surrounded by a working farm so there's some noise from horses and vintage tractors - but this only lasts till mid morning as they finish before the heat of the day and it was wonderful to see a true Tuscan setting - we even saw new born foal! beautiful.

The kitchen is small but adequate and Michelle kindly provided cleaning materials, dishwasher tablets, washing machine powder, toilet rolls etc so that you didn't have a costly shop on arrival (unlike our Thompson holiday Villa where there wasn't even washing up liquid).

The bedrooms are lovely, with fantastic ensuites, spacious, clean and well designed and unusually lots and lots of wardrobe space! :)

Shops - 15 Drive to Carmica. Deli shops and Spa Shop.
VISIT CORTONA! 20 min drive - beautiful!! less well known than Voltera but in our opinion the favourite hill top village in Tuscany, charming!
Car hire essential.

We hope to return next year and highly reccommend.

I hope to see you again next year.
thanks thanks thanks.
