Our stay at the villa was wonderful.
We loved the house and grounds. The house was lovely, roomy, and comfortable and the grounds and pool were beautiful. The owners were lovely and accommodating.
The villa was in a quiet, rural neighborhood but conveniently within an easy walk of a small village shopping center. There was a great view of the hill town of Cortona, which was about a 10-minute drive from the villa.
