“Appartement dans une belle maison de campagne dans une charmante ville de Toscane”
Entouré d' un magnifique paysage ,l 'appartement se trouve au rez de chaussée d 'une belle maison ancienne, habitée par sa propriétaire. On peut accéder au centre de la charmante ville de Cortone à pied en 20 minutes par une jolie promenade. On est au calme, pour se reposer et se promener, et on peut facilement visiter la Toscane ou l 'Ombrie depuis ce point de chute.
For our main family holiday we drove from England to Italy in August 2011. Our pre-booked accommodation was appalling, but this is not a review for them. We needed accommodation quickly to save our holiday and Marie-Claire (the owner of La Torre Dei Venti) quickly replied to our plea. We were welcomed with warmth and our little son with open arms. The property itself is a destination with lots of old character and charm along with stunning views of the rolling hills. A short walk along, the very elegant, Viale dei Giardini Pubblici brings you into the heart of the beautiful old city of Cortona. There is much about this online written far better than I could wish to describe. For our small family and our little son the best thing about La Torre Dei Venti was Marie-Claire. She offered advise on where to go to eat, shop and visit. She took us to places only locals knew about and personally guided us to the supermarket, railway station and a hidden treasure at Lake Trasimeno. We would love to go back and our son will make sure we do. *Note: I must say this property is for couples or friends mainly. Our son was welcomed due to our desperate situation and luckily bonded very well with our saviour.
“We Have Returned Many Times”
We have spent many wonderful days at La Torre Dei Venti and plan to return. The location, the views, the look and feel of the compact and convenient little apartment suit us exactly. We also very much appreciate Marie Claire's cheerful good humor and knowledge of the area. Of Cortona itself, we are continually fascinated by all this lovely Italian Hill town has to offer. Though there are many wonderful places within easy driving distance and well worth day trips, it's just as easy to spend an entire vacation in and around Cortona.
“A place of dreams”
There are very few places in the world that will make you feel like you belong there and La Torre dei Venti is one of them. The accommodation has the old world charm that everyone looks for when travelling to Italy; the renovated original stone structure with a clay roof, olive trees, cuckoo birds, beautiful flowers, a stunning hill side vista, as well as Etruscan, Roman, Medieval and Renaissance history to explore. The house is nestled on the side of the hill that the magnificent town of Cortona is built on and you may drive or walk there easily. The town is fascinating and has been left in its authentic state. The interior of the apartment is very quaint and artistically decorated. It is very comfortable, clean and with all of the amenities that you could want. The photos do not do it justice. The landlady, Marie-Claire, is a wonderful woman who is a joy to talk to and has so much information about the area. Make a point to have one of her excellent gourmet meals. She will recommend the most wonderful wines for you as well. My husband and I have been imagining this amazing place since leaving Italy and we are looking forward to returning there many times.
