It is cosy enough for a couple who want a romantic break and roomy enough for family, two couples or friends who wish to explore their Tuscan adventure together. With essential WiFi enabled, two bedroom, two bathrooms, loads of living space, outdoor living, BBQ, fireplace, garden and private deep sparkling pool. Plus we supply an extra two fold out beds that you could use for another two children if needed. Baby is not forgotten with a porta-cot, high chair and pushchair.

A 400+ year old cottage with a 21st century renovation that has created a comfortable, two level, two double bedroom, two bathroom home with easy indoor/outdoor living area and stunning pool and lawn. Furnished with all the home comforts that make you melt into your surroundings and never want to leave.

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.

The Tuscany region

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


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 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.
