Villa Principessa is a Tuscan dream. It is exactly as pictured but even better! The views are spectacular and the home is really special. I hope we get to return many times! It can be a little hard to find the first time, but Younis the caretaker could not be more friendly and helpful in getting you there and in all your needs with the house. Once you are there, you may never want to leave, but the beautiful village of Cortona is about a 30 minute uphill walk or a 5 minute drive. The road to Cortona is very narrow (and beautiful) and can be a little scary as a driver the first time. But once you get used to it, no problem! We enjoyed our morning walks into town to buy fresh produce each day and then drives into town at night to sample the many delicious restaurants. Could not possibly recommend this place more. It’s perfect. Do keep in mind there is the upstairs main house and then two units on bottom floor, so if you want the whole house to yourself, make sure and specify that.
