Our experience at Villa Cortese was terrific. The owner is a great hostess and we felt very welcomed. The property is lovely and the region is our favorite.
Lynn's review of Villa Cortese
Left on 08/27/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | Lynn
We loved the house and the grounds. Having two kitchens - the second was a full summer kitchen near pool and BBQ - was a huge help for our group. We cooked in the summer kitchen every night to help keep the house cool and enjoy the summer nights.
The access to the outside. Lots of space for people to relax and be alone or come together.
Also, lots of bathrooms!
No screens on the windows. I know this is an Italian thing but it was a bit unnerving with bugs at night.
We biked everyday and the surrounding area afforded great rides!
