Myself and 3 other ladies came to Italy to celebrate two birthdays. We stayed at Paulo and Daniella's charming villa in Cortona; it was beautiful! The bedrooms were spacious with thier own bathrooms and air conditioning units. What a bonus the airconditioning was as the temperatures were above normal for the season. We were welcomed by both Paolo and Daniela...

About the neighbourhood
Cortona is the main artistic and cultural center of the Val di Chiana and one of the most important Etruscan sites of Italy. The prevailing character of Cortona's architecture is medieval with steep narrow streets situated on a hillside embracing the view of the Val di Chiana and lake Trasimeno. The small town,surrounded by its ancient walls and topped off by the ruined fortress, is a treasure trove of cobbled streets and alleys, churches, ancient buildings, combining with bars and cafes, as well as excellent restaurants. Ten minutes walk from the house or a few minutes drive you can get to a CLUB WITH SWIMMING POOL, BEACH VOLLEY, RESTAURANT and BAR.
Getting around
Our apartment is perfect to reach all main Tuscan and Umbrian sightseeings, just a few meters from the SS71 which connects Arezzo and E45 to reach the area of ​​Perugia and Lake Trasimeno. It is not far from Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza and Perugia, just to quote a few ones. 400 meters from the house a restaurant, a local fruit and vegetable shop and a mini market. Car suggested but there are two buses stops close to the house and the train station 4 km away
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Firenze: 113.0 km
Railway: Camucia: 3.0 km
The best exit to Cortona from the A1 motorway is ”Valdichiana”. After the exit turn right and at the next roundabout follow the road sign to “Perugia - Cortona”, that is the first exit on your right. Now you’ll be driving on the Siena-Perugia motorway. After around 2 km take the exit “Foiano della Chiana” and at the next crossroads take the left to Cortona. Go on for about 12 km (indications for Cortona). At the first roundabout take the third exit (Castiglion Fiorentino-Arezzo)- At the second roundabout take the 2d exit (Cortona-Arezzo-Perugia). Then at the third roundabout take the second exit (Cortona-Castiglion Fiorentino-Arezzo). Go on for about 2 km, then you’ll find a roundabout: take the first exit, 400 mt and you are at home!!!
