Location;

Your holiday time is precious and you want amenities close by. Villa Rosa is only two minutes walk to the nearest Bar & Shop with basic provisions and there is also I Grifi, a restaurant that serves fabulous Tuscan food and wine for both lunch and dinner. You are also just 1km away from the City of Cortona - easy enough to walk to. Cortona is packed with even more amenities: green grocers, wine shops, boutiques, butchers, bakers, bars, cafes, and also provides great entertainment, eating & drinking venues, markets, shops and nightlife. Although Villa Rosa is a short distance from this hustle and bustle, she cossets you in its private and secluded garden and pool for pure relaxation.

If you’re arriving by car then it is an easy drive to the front door - No steep, single lane, hairpin turns or gravel roads to navigate. Bliss.

An ideal holiday location for friends, families and the experienced travellers.

The Tuscany region

An ideal holiday location for friends, families and the experienced travellers.

Escape to Tuscany: LIVE|EAT|TASTE|LEARN|EXPLORE

Tuscany is about living the dream - the hot summer days, the vineyards, the food, the cycle lanes across the valley that follow the canals to Arezzo, the cooking schools, the pottery lessons, the horse treks, the local markets, the historic monuments and remnants of past civilisations to explore. For those who love nature and walking there are marked walks in the hills and around the wider area of Cortona and of course there is just relaxing by the pool soaking up the suns rays and re-energising your body and soul.

Cortona

Cortona is well serviced to make any holiday easy and enjoyable.

At Villa Rosa we provide a welcome pack with ideas of things to do and there is also an information centre in the heart of Cortona that will help pack your holiday with activities from cooking classes to wine tasting to golf courses.

English is widely spoken as Cortona has been aligned with The University of Georgia (USA) for summer school for over 30 years which has bought many English speakers to the town. Cortona is also the mecca for all those who love Frances Mayes and her Under the Tuscan Sun book and film.

The locals are welcoming and generous in their hospitality.

There are 5 supermarkets within a 10 minute drive, over 30 excellent restaurants in the City of Cortona which are well frequented by both visitor and locals. The shopping is vast - there are 3 excellent outlet villages within an hour's drive. The Arrezzo Antique market held over the weekend of the first Sunday of the month (except August) is the largest outdoor antique market in Europe. Hand-painted pottery from Deruta is about 40 minutes by car.

There are several beaches on Lake Trasimeno about 20 minutes away and there are ferries going out to the islands in the lake. Sailing is also available on the lake. For those of you who need exercise and love walking, there are marked trials for walks in the hills surrounding Villa Rosa. Two public tennis courts are located at the end of the road and of course a stroll into the City of Cortona is also to be claimed as exercise!

There are also two golf courses nearby that are well equipped and you can hire golf clubs.

“Tuscan Dream”

Reviewed 19 May 2014

I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful Tuscan Dream Villa. The owner Christine was on another continent went out of her way to make us feel at home and cater to our every need through email exchanges and her wonderful house keeper. The house was everything we could have possibly wanted and so much more. The villa was roomy and very tastefully decorated with quality fixtures and fittings. The kitchen was well equipped with basic cooking requirements. The bedrooms were tastefully decorated with quality bedding. The atmosphere of the house and surrounds was very conducive to rest and relaxation. The township of Cortona was a delight and handy to the house. The owner was very accommodating and readily available if neeed. A car is recommended if you are staying in this accommodation although we got by without one, thanks to the owner and some helpful suggestions.

“Fabulous place - didn't want to leave”

Reviewed 18 May 2013

Beautiful house with fabulous views. Very peaceful and a great place to just unwind and soak up the atmosphere. It is a good base for day trips to Florence and Assisi and of course for just spending the day wandering the old town of Cortona and the surrounding area.

“A little bit of paradise”

Reviewed 2 Apr 2013

A beautiful house in a wonderful location! This is our 5th visit to Villa Rosa and we certainly aim to keep returning! Everything about the property is superb - the lavender in the gardens, the inviting crystal clear swimming pool, meals al freso, the well stocked bookcases and the trips to Lucca's bar on the corner for a nightcap!

“Just the most beautiful location and Villa”

Reviewed 17 Mar 2013

We stayed for a week in this wonderful Villa. The Villa was very clean and had spectacular views across the valley. The pool was ideal and we lazed around it for a few days. Cortona was very close by and we had a few days walking around the city and taking in the views and the experiencing the food, the wine and the local culture. We also took the train to Florence and it was a very easy trip.

“Little spot of Italian Heaven”

Reviewed 17 Mar 2013

My favorite time of day at Villa Rosa is early morning when the sun burns away the mist in the valley, and all you can hear are birds, thousands and thousands of birds! There are even a few cuckoo birds which actually DO sound exactly like the clocks, and the hummingbirds are so exciting EVERY time you see them (yeah, I'm a bird nut). Even though you're a 15 minute leisurely walk from the most excellent village, Cortona, Villa Rosa seems to be in the middle of nowhere, far indeed from the madding crowd. You could hear a pin drop at night, all the better to hunt fireflies... Italy gets pretty hot in the summer, especially the afternoon, so when it's siesta time I recommend closing all of the villa's shutters nice and tight, which creates a wonderful cocoon of dark coolness... perfect for sleep after eating lunch outside at the huge table (if you're smart much of your time in Italy will be spent eating). I've been here twice already, and it is a place that manages to suck out ALL of your real-life stresses with its Italian panache, in a way that makes you wonder why you were so stressed in the first place. Do yourself a favour, and wallow in the loveliness that is Villa Rosa in the perfect little pocket of civilization called Cortona.
