Description from owner
The apartment is ideally situated on the outskirts of the medieval town of Cetona, with a splendid view over the valley and distant mountains. It is a short walk from all the local amenities, including restaurants, cafes, and shops. Within a few minutes you can be amongst the hustle and bustle of a truly Italian atmosphere with its busy piazza, but the house itself is in a quiet location.
The apartment is brand new, built a year ago and is available for rent from summer 2008. It has been tastefully designed in the old traditional Tuscan style. It is on two levels, connected by a spiral staircase and accommodates 4 people in 2 bedrooms (one double and two single beds).
Outside the kitchen there is a balcony, where you can eat al fresco. On the top floor there is a roof top terrace with loggia (summerhouse), where you can enjoy magnificent views over the surrounding countryside or sunbathe in total privacy. There is a shared private swimming pool that can be used by all apartments in the complex.
* Welcome pack provided on arrival.
* English-speaking representative on hand to answer any questions or provide assistance.

“Excellent, centrally located apartment in a charming village”
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cetona and, given half a chance, would go back tomorrow! We booked the apartment for two weeks with my husband and I spending the first week on our own, and our two sons and one girlfriend joined us for the second week. The apartment was more spacious than it appears in the photo's, and the second bathroom was a pleasant surprise as I seem to have missed that in the description. The bedrooms and balcony have incredible views and like other guests, we spent a lot of our time on the balcony enjoying the scenery. Our youngest son slept on the campbed which had been set up in the upstairs room but as there were no curtains we moved this to the living-room. It was not a problem as he can sleep almost anywhere, but is something to consider if you are planning a stay with five people. Guido and Lucia welcomed us and helped us through all the teething problems of holiday accomodation. They speak excellent English and responded quickly and sympathetically to our pleas for help such as, where to find the code to activate the wi-fi. Lucia also gave us a few tips about places or events worth seeing, and for more ideas there is a basket of information in the apartment. Cetona is a lovely village. We rounded most evenings off with an ice-cream on the piazza, watching the children playing in the relative cool of the evening. The residents and shop owners are very friendly and pleasantly surprised if you make the effort to speak a little Italian. The supermarket provided us with all our shopping and the Jamie Oliver Italy book in the apartment gave us ideas about what to cook. Although there is a bus service it is not very regular so if you are planning to tour the area a car is advisable. The apartment has a covered parking area which means that the car doesn't get too hot sitting in the sun. All in all we had a wonderful holiday!
“Wonderful apartment. Real feel of Italy with the advantages everything you need.”
My husband, daughter (28) and myself had a lovely week in this apartment. It is a modern apartment yet with the real feel of Italy with high ceilings, shuttered windows and beautiful tiled floors. The views are the best of anywhere we have ever stayed. Cetona is lovely, a 5 minute walk in to the centre and we found the nearby Bistro provided reasonable tasty food. Cetona is a small pretty village in the amazing Tuscan countryside but with the advantage that the A1 is a 10 minute drive away from where we visited most of Southern Tuscany. The tolls are small for short distances within Tuscany and it is so quick to get around on the A1 - compared to the smaller mountain roads. We have already recommended the apartment to our friends.
“Wonderful apartment in a stunning setting.”
Loved the apartment, especially the swimming pool. Friendly, and helpful caretakers helped make us feel at home. Cetona is a gem of a place and the apartment is ideally situated-nice and quiet but within easy distance to wander down to the piazza for an icecream, coffee or wonderful meal. Highly recommend it.
“Wonderful apartment, fantastic views in and interesting region”
We really did love the apartment. It was beyond our expectations. Nice, clean with good space. The views from the balcony and the bedrooms is just a summary of the Tuscan landscape. It´s amazing to see Monte Subario and other mountains about 100 km away. With this apartment is it necessary with a car. And with the heat during our visit did we really appreciate the possibility to put the car in a garage. Cetona is a nice little village and a very good starting point for exploring southern Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio.
“Great apartment and location to explore this area of Tuscany”
If Cetona's good enough for Valentino - then we figured it's good enough for us! A small town that's not overun by tourists. - but still has everything you'd need. It was great to see the locals in the piazza of a summer evening, chatting in groups, playing cards, strolling, eating icecream. The apartment was lovely with fantastic views, nice swimming pool and grounds to relax at the end of a day. The "caretakers" were helpful and friendly. We do suggest that you have a supply of easy hand-washable clothes as there is no washing machine and time is better spent enjoying the area, than in another town at the public laundry. There is also no wifi or telephone, so you need to have your own access if you want to stay in touch. Or maybe it's better to stay away from technology for a while and soak in the surrounds instead.T
“Very good value for the money”
We were pleasantly surprised by the apartment, it was even better than we thought. Although the area around the apartment was very nice and well maintained. The village of Cetona was a little gem, with small streets, stone houses perched on a small hilltop. There was even the toys in the apartment tll our children 4 to 6 years old. Michael Engstrom, Sweden
As we are coming to the end of our stay we really do not want to leave. The apartment is well equipped and the views are breathtaking. The apartment is A1 and close to Chiusi train station, A car would be advisable, we managed to do trips to Siena, Florence, Pisa, as well as the surrounding areas. My husband and son done a train trip to Rome by train and it was very reasonalby priced. As for places to eat its hard to choose the best, Bistrot has a wide selection of pizzas, pastas as well as burgers, chicken and chips, osteria Merlo and Vecchio both do outstanding food, and Trattoria del Contadino is a Tuscan experience to enjoy again with spectacular views. If you like the beach but dont want to travel the 2+ hours then Lago Tresmino is a good alternative, we went to 'Castiglione del Lago on a Wednesday (market day) in the morning then spend the afternoon swimming in the lake. The only downside is we have to return back to the UK and leave this wonderful place behind. But we do hope to return again in a few years. Thanks to the owners for giving us the opportunity to spend our time in such a picturesque base.
