This villa was the perfect scenery for a long weekend in the Tuscan countryside. It’s location gives you the perfect vantage point of the beautiful landscapes. The villa is very old (dating back many centuries) and has an antique bed and breakfast atmosphere.
Pros: breakfast served daily in the dining room, elevator, clean rooms, bidet, air conditioning, bar next to dining room, mini bar fridge in room, 15 min drive to Cortona, friendly/helpful/bilingual staff. The villa has a beautiful terrace with incredible views as well as several outdoor seating areas and a pool with sun beds. We also saw that hey had bikes that guests could probably borrow. Also, they have a delicious restaurant on site which we went to for dinner called “Papa e Cena.” Highly recommend it!
Cons: poor WiFi connection (we were on the second floor; WiFi only worked downstairs), old uncomfortable mattress, shower head needs to be updated (hot water takes a long time and poor water pressure). During our short stay, they were hosting a very large wedding on site (approx 150 people). This was inconvenient because there was no parking for hotel guests and the noise level was loud well into the night. When booking, you may want to ask if there will be a wedding during your trip dates since it is a popular wedding venue.More
