Nous sommes à distance de marche de la belle ville historique de Cortona. Il ya un bar avec une petite boutique pour l'essentiel à quelques minutes. Il ya aussi un petit hôtel 4 étoiles situé à proximité du bar avec un excellent restaurant. Cortona est plein de charmants restaurants.

Best Italian holiday ever
A well-equipped and comfortable apartment with garden and pool all looking out over a marvellous view with Lake Trasimeno and mountains in the distance. It's a 2km walk into central Cortona (largely flat but with one steep hill) and the walk is one of the best things about staying here. Liz, the owner, is a generous and delightful host, full of useful tips about the area.
Lovely house, exceptional views
We enjoyed a wonderful holiday in this lovely house. The view really is spectacular. We spent a lot of time in the pool, which is well-equipped with chairs, loungers and sunshades, and enjoyed eating outside under the pergola. The house is also well-equipped, with everything we needed, and Liz was very helpful and welcoming, booking tables and suggesting trips etc. The walk into town is pleasant (although it's a bit of a climb on the way back up!!) but there is a bar and restaurant nearby if you aren't feeling that energetic! We also saw fireflies at night. In easy reach of Florence airport and lots to do in the surrounding area. Would thoroughly recommend. Kate, Tony, Emma & Becky
Brilliant stay. Wonderful apartment and location and Liz was an excellent host. The pool and surrounding areas are stunning. We had a very relaxing and comfortable stay and we couldn't have wanted for more- fantastic!
A great place to stay with wonderful views and close to Cortona.
A lovely villa with beautiful views and an infinity pool in a secluded spot but only 20 minutes walk from Cortona. The walk back in the dark from Cortona was lit by fireflies. Lix is very hospitable. We came here 3 years ago and have been looking forward to coming back. Everything lived up to our memories and I would highly recommend it.
Thank you for your kind review. I loved having you all to stay, and I hope that you will return again sometime soon.
Wonderful, idyllic Tuscan experience
Having read the reviews before arriving, we were expecting a lot from our holiday at Villa Torreone and I'm happy to say it lived up to its billing. The pictures really don't do the villa justice: while it looks amazing in the photos, it is actually better! The setting is exactly as you imagine Tuscany from the movies; rolling hills, olive groves, beautiful views across the valley below and the beautiful historic town of Cortona a short walk away.
Liz really is a wonderful ,welcoming host. Having lived in the area for many years, her local knowledge was excellent and the apartment is laden with books about Tuscany and Italy, which meant we could make the most of every day of our stay.
Cortona offers excellent and very affordable bars and restaurants, which we made the most of every evening, and we particularly enjoyed the walk home under a crystal clear, starry sky each night. The boutiques and artisan shops were also fun to wander around and buy presents.
We took the opportunity to visit Florence by train one day, which was very easy. Whilst we didn't do it, Perugia is also accessible by train. Perhaps next time...
Many thanks for a holiday experience that will bring a smile to our faces for many years to come.
Thanks for a wonderful review. I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Torreone and I hope that I will see you here again in the near future.
Perfect in every way
It's difficult to put in to words just how perfect Villa Torreone is. If you have seen the film or read the book 'Under the Tuscan Sun', you will feel like you are living the experience. In fact, Bramasole is a short walk down the road. From the tastefully decorated apartment with literally everything you could need, to the breathtaking views across the Chianna valley, to the divine outdoor eating areas, to the beautiful garden and grounds and finally the amazing private eternity pool with exceptional views, you instantly feel like you are in paradise. Liz was an exceptionally welcoming host. We were there with our 10 month old son and she thought of additional extras like providing baby wipes and toys that made us feel right at home. Having been to Tuscany several times, we can also highly recommend Cortona as one of Tuscany's most charming towns. Excellent restaurants, shops and bars, many sightseeing opportunities and very quaint with a true Tuscan feel. We had such a wonderful stay that we have already booked to come again next year!
Cortona is truly an amazing town. If you are feeling lazy one evening, instead of heading off into Cortona for a meal there is a restaurant few minutes away or even better a bar that serves traditional platters of meat or cheese which you can wash down with Luca's excellent wine, his own production! A change from the hustle and bustle of town.
Cortona a tout ce dont vous avez besoin pour vos vacances. Beaucoup de restaurants de plus cher, et vers le bas pour pizzerias. Deux petits supermarchés et beaucoup de bars et de boutiques intéressantes. Il ya un certain nombre de banques et d'un chimiste. Il ya un excellent musée.
