“Fabulous little apartment in the heart of the town”

The location is wonderful, being in the heart of the town and within easy reach of all the sites, shops and restaurants. It has been beautifully and tastefully renovated and caters for all your needs including a washing machine. We were a party of 2 and it was perfect for us but I think if we had been 4 we would have struggled as the kitchen is very small with only basic cooking equipment and preparation space.

HI Danielle,

We were delighted to have you as guests and that you enjoyed Cortona. I hope you loved every minute of your vacation with us!

If I can add just a quick clarification about the kitchen ;)

Although a small counter, there is a good sized table for prep, and seating and everything in the kitchen is new. It is fully equipt with a full sized dishwasher, stove, oven, big fridge and freezer, all dishes, pots pans, coffee maker, knives, toaster, cutting boards, mixing Bowles and everything you would need to cook your favorite meals. We have many long term guests that cook in there every day...Especially the amazing goodies they find on market day!

We hope to see you again in Cortona and please keep us in mind should you return.

Have a great rest of summer!
Cheers
Sam

“Very comfortable and welcoming”
Reviewed 27 May 2016 for a stay in March 2016

person found this review helpful

The apartment was exceptionally clean, well equipped, and very comfortable. We couldn't have asked for more. We were a bit nervous to be taking an overseas trip with a big family but the apartment very quickly became our welcoming "home away from home" and but our fears to rest. Although we took side trips to Florence, Rome, Orvieto, and other locations, Cortona was our favorite place and provided the perfect setting for us to feel more like residents than tourists. We would have loved to have stayed longer and actually felt a little homesick for the town after returning to the United States.

“Perfect”

We enjoyed a week in Cortona with side trips to Florence and some vineyards. Our stay was exceptional. Clean, comfortable and with outstanding views of the countryside from our cozy kitchen. Everything we needed. We ended it with a home-cooked meal while sipping wine and staring at the sunset from the kitchen. Cortona itself was a gem. We could've stayed forever.

“Wonderful Apartment With Beautiful Views”

I, and two girlfriends stayed at Sophia in April for 3 nights. It is a very charming, well equipped apartment with comfortable beds and clean and nice kitchen and bath. The living room area was very comfortable and cozy. The location was excellent. Very near the Piazza del Duomo. We drove into the city at the entrance recommended by Samantha, and, the parking angels were with us because we found free parking in the small lot by the Duomo each day. From there the apartment is very close. It's a about a 5-10 minute walk to the main Piazza. The location of the apartment is in a very quiet neighborhood. All in all We loved and and would recommend it.

“PRECIOUS & LOCATION PERFECTION”
Reviewed 9 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

I traveled to Cortona with my husband and my 2 adult children joined us on our 3rd day. Parking was confusing for us and at a minimum, but once you figure it out, it's fine. Cortona is not nearly as steep as we expected, so getting to the apartment with a rolling suitcase is a complete breeze! Sofia is a PERFECT LOCATION for exploring Cortona and visiting nearby Tuscan Hill Towns. The apartment was exactly as pictured, however seemed much larger than it appears in photos. The view is amazing in every light, day and night! The living room was a perfect perch for the 4 photographers to upload all they wanted on social media each night. My adult children took over the sofa with all of their devices so we borrowed a chair from the kitchen and it was perfect. Samantha mentioned in our communication that the wifi didn't have the strongest signal, but we had NO PROBLEM at all. The kitchen was perfect for cooking our locally sourced pasta, pesto, bread and WINE! And yes, there's a dishwasher! We cooked a few evening meals and breakfast everyday. The bathroom is roomy with a small shower, but plenty of hot water! We over-packed as usual, so didn't need the washing machine, but there were racks for drying and plenty of room. The master bedroom was very roomy, plenty of storage and a fabulous large window above the bed if you enjoy an open window during the night. The second bedroom was WAY BIGGER than it appears in the photos, but has no storage. That was NO problem for us as my well traveled adult children lived perfectly out of their suitcases and the beds were perfect, however my daughter needed earplugs because of her brother's snoring #lifefatherlikeson #familyproblems. We explored Cortona, inside and outside the wall on foot and loved every step! It's very small and easy to navigate with phone gps for quick reference if you get a little lost winding through the streets inside the wall. Cortona was a perfect location to take day trips to some other Tuscan Hill Towns. We visited Siena, Montepulciano, and Civita (the dying city, accessible by footbridge only, population 8!, SO FUN!) We will go back to Cortona for a spring/summer experience. There is just so much to do and see! I hope to meet Samantha on our next trip as she was the perfect hostess albeit by email. She answered every email within a couple of hours, if immediately. She offered great suggestions for every aspect of our trip and she is adorable! Hope to meet her for a meal next time!!!
