Description from owner
We rent occasionally and only for short periods, nice apartment with private garden area old town Cortona. Our house is spacious and full of light - a perfect cool retreat after a warm summer day's exploration in Tuscany. Great for two love birds or a couple with a child, this accommodation in Cortona even has its own little walled garden, where you can sit and chat in the shade. In the evening, you can let yourself out of this apartment for rent and into Cortona, where you can meander through the public gardens across the street or have a delicious Italian meal on the "square". This apartment is located literally in Cortona's historic center; starting from Cortona's main piazza, a walk down the main pedestrian street will end at a ring road. Pass the church, cross the road, and unlock the door to your own secret garden! Further details indoors: Interior description (80 sq. M.) Ground floor: after coming down the steps into the garden and then another half-flight

This apartment is located literally in Cortona's historic center; starting from Cortona's main piazza, a walk down the main pedestrian street will end at a ring road. Pass the church, cross the road, and unlock the door to your own secret garden! Further details indoors: Interior description (80 sq. M.) Ground floor: after coming down the steps into the garden and then another half-flight to the front door, you will enter into a hallway. Immediately to your right is a dining room with a table for four, and through an open door is a very small kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with an oven, cook top, washing machine, toaster, American coffee maker, and Italian coffee maker. Continuing down the front hall, you will find yourself in a large living room with a very good quality sofa-bed, TV, and a bookshelf with various Inglese titles and DVD library. Also there is now a completely free, unlimited ADSL Internet connection, with WIFI in the house and garden. A half-step up through a door in the living room leads into a kind of ante-room, furnished with two comfortable armchairs and a lamp. On one side of this room is the door to the bedroom, Which has an extremely comfortable king-size bed 180 cm. Another door from the ante-room leads into a liberty style bathroom, Which has a sink, toilet, bidet, shower and crystal cabinet. Clean Linen and Blankets for the bed and Also clean towels are in the wardrobe in the bedroom. Sheets for the sofa bed are in the bookcase in the living room. Everything in the house Has Been cleaned and sterilized before your arrival, including the sheets That the bed has on now. We do not make anyone pay for final cleaning and just Hope that you are satisfied with it and That you will manage to leave the house as tidy as you can upon departure. However we will be in on check-out day, after 11am to clean up and prepare the Wisteria for the next guests. Further details outdoors: Exterior description (100 sq. M.) Running along a wall just outside of Cortona are a few little doors; unlock this small, green one and go down the stone stairs (the steps are fairly steep; there is a light for night-time entry) into your own little secret garden. Here you'll find a table with wrought-iron chairs underneath a shady pergola covered with scented roses, as well as a beautifully kept private garden surrounded by ancient stone walls (the garden is now ripe blackberries than shown in the photos). You can sit and have a glass of wine in the afternoon as you watch birds and insects enjoy the greenery-- along with the occasional trespassing cat - or BBQ dinner on the brick and stone grill. The Wisteria is very well located and everything is happening in front of the house (where the public Parterre gardens are) and to your left where the main road starts and where all the restaurants, shops and bars are.
Location description from owner
The Tuscany region
Our Home address in Cortona is Via Marco Polo N°10 that you can find 500 meters away, right in front of the parking space under the trees on the last U-turn coming up towards Il Glicine on Via Viale Battisti.
Keys The address where you can come to get the Keys is either at our house in Cortona or in front of Il Glicine directly. Our house is in Via Marco Polo 10 Cortona. Il Glicine is in Vicolo Cinaglia 8 which is on the road up to San Domenico Church and just off Viale Battisti, exactly at N 9.
Parking There is a reserved temporary parking space, marked with a yellow cross right in front of the green garden door of Il Glicine. You may leave your car there for a limited period of time with blinkers on and Green door open, so that the Police agent can call you to move the car if necessary. The Blue Parking spaces on all the road right in front of the house are available at the cost of 1 euro per hour from 9AM to 8PM. After 8PM these areas are free. 300 meters downhill from the house are the white parking spaces that are all free and often available. On busy days the Parterre Gardens (in front of the house) also open for free Parking. If you cannot find any of the above free, your car can be left in front of our house (Via Marco Polo 10) which is about 300 meters away from Il Glicine and where we have a reserved extra space for you to use.
