Moses Palace is welcoming and warm. I went with a group of 5 ladies. I stayed on the 3rd floor which had a balcony overlooking the street. We could see some amazing sunrises and sunsets. Even the view from the bathroom was wonderful. The Villa offers wifi so we were able to get on the internet to help us find local restaurants, maps, etc. There is a washer/dryer in top floor bathroom which came in very handy. Cortona is not big, but the Villa's location was perfect. We were able to walk a very short distance to our favorite restaurants and markets. We even found a wonderful wine store. The Villa will sleep 7 very comfortably with 2 full baths and 1 half bath. There is a large dining room table on the first floor with the kitchen. All dishes and cookware are provided so you don't have to eat out every meal. With all the fresh food available at the local markets, cooking was a joy!
I would highly recommend Moses Palace not only for the Villa itself, but Roberto and his wife were so very kind and helpful during out stay.

Moses Palace is truly a wonderful place to stay in Cortona, an amazing Tuscan village. Roberto and his wife were very helpful and added to the overall experience. I could go on but will simply suggest that you send me some email for a picture link and more information about our experience.

Cortona is a beautiful place and the location on Moses Palace allowed us to walk to the piazza every day and night. Shops and wonderful restaurants were all around us. Right next to a beautiful church and could walk to see the house in Under the Tuscan Sun! The place is set up so nice with bedrooms on three different floors--so their is privacy and multiple bathrooms. The location couldn't be any better. The owners met us there (and waited for us even though we were late arriving) and showed us the house and were so kind and helpful. The whole vacation was simply superb but having this as "home base" made it even more special.
