“A Tuscan Dream”
Reviewed 31 March 2017 for a stay in June 2016

A picturesque villa perched in the hills of Cortona with abundant sunshine, butterflies, wild lavender and rosemary, a large terrace for outdoor entertaining, and a refreshing swimming pool. Villa Rosa is exactly what your Tuscan dreams are made of. Absolutely wonderful!!

“Bliss!”
Reviewed 29 March 2017 for a stay in July 2015

We have visited Villa Rosa twice, and have had a wonderful time on both occasions. Set in olive groves under the walls of a Medici fortress, and a 20 minutes walk from the centre of Cortona and its piazzas and restaurants, it is an exceptional holiday destination. An old homestead, renovated to the highest standard, including wifi, it looks over hills and valleys towards Lake Trasimeno and the Chiana valley. Its pool is particularly inviting, deep and cool on hot summer days. Three hundred metres up the road is a charming bar, which will on request serve an evening meal on its terrace. The region includes Siena, Perugia, Assisi and Arezzo, with Florence within striking distance. I cannot but recommend Villa Rosa.

“Ideal”
Reviewed 29 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Villa Rosa is a favourite destination where I have stayed a number of times and will keep going back. It is an ideal combination of rural idyll and urban convenience, being located a 5 minute drive or 20 minute scenic walk from the enchanting, historic walled town of Cortona, yet with a panoramic countryside view from its hillside spot.

Equipped and furnished to a very high standard and now with Wi-Fi for those unable to switch off, Villa Rosa provides an excellent base from which to explore the area - it is within striking distance of Arezzo, Florence, Siena and Perugia as well as the Montepulciano and Montalcino wine regions.

The owner provides a useful handbook giving details of the house but also ideas of places to visit, restaurants or bars to try or activities to be found nearby. Alternatively, you can just relax by the pool and unwind.

I would strongly recommend a visit - once you have been, you will want to return.

“Living the dream - Olive Picking at its best”
Reviewed 28 March 2017 for a stay in October 2016

person found this review helpful

The location is stunning - wide views across the valley, private and tranquil. A beautifully renovated stone house that is modern and comfortable on the inside and comes with a stunning pool and garden to relax in. Olive picking was a bonus as we stayed and were happy to help with the harvest. Delicious peppery oil - divine. What an experience - just magic. Will be back.

“Peaceful, Beautiful, Tranquil.”

Villa Rosa is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. Cortona is a lovely town and there are lots of little days out to be had around there if you hire a car. Every restaurant that we visited was good, and the local people there were so friendly and welcoming. We swam in the nearby Lake Trasimeno and especially enjoyed the walk to the Franciscan monastery from the house which is stunning. The house is just gorgeous, it is placed in such a peaceful spot. I loved all the little outdoor areas and the scent of lavender in the air. We found the pool too cold for us to swim in (personal preference) but it is beautifully situated. The house was extremely well equipped and perfectly clean. We enjoyed playing the board games when we returned home from the local bar just up the road in the evenings.
We had a couple of days of thunderstorms and showers and the lightning was really spectacular :) But it was mostly lovely hot weather.
The surroundings were absolutely gorgeous, so peaceful and beautiful. Even our teenagers were impressed! Thank you for making our Summer holiday so special.

We are blessed that Cortona has an excellent array of eateries and bars. Being able to walk into town while enjoining the beautiful of location of Villa Rosa is a huge bonus.
Happy to see that the board games were enjoyed - somehow they do add that magic ingredient that adds to holiday memories.
