We booked this with the view of visiting Cortona and it was well worth it. The setting of the hotel is beautiful with big grounds on a working farm. The room was excellent and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Good value for money. The restaurant and food was very good. Good breakfast.

We stayed here for 3 nights, grounds and pool are fab although it was too cold to swim in in early May. Rooms are very nice and clean. It would have been nice to have tea & coffee facilities in the rooms. Staff were very helpful and helped us with our travel plans. The only fault would be that it...

We passed this place by chance and were lucky to find a room. It is a beautifully refurbished old farm with all you need to pamper yourself. Big pool in the garden from where you have a great view of the hilltop town of Cortona. We had a very nice late dinner in the yard of the restaurant and in...

This is a good location and easily accessible. The buildings are typically 19th Century with beautifully maintained gardens and Cyprus trees. The welcome was warm,and checked in easily. Our room was big and comfortable,with a large modern bathroom. We enjoyed a' Master Chef 'candel lit dinner which was memorable.The continental breakfasts were of good quality and quantity.

Went for a long weekend with a friend. We booked a suite which was enormous and very clean. The bathrooms were well equipped and great.

Very nice hotel with great value if booked in advance. Provided breakfast was great and we had easy access for day trips to Florence, Assisi and Siena, not to mention Cortona as well. I imagine the grounds in summer and the pool would be amazing place to see.

Hello, Very nice family run hotel close to Cortona. Stayed here for 4 nights after winning the stay in a charity auction. Room was spacious and nice. Pool was very nice as well. The restaurant in my opinion was not greta and rather expensive. There are far nicer and cheaper options in Cortona.
