The location; Everyone wants to be able to walk into Cortona! and with Villa Rosa this is exactly what you can do. Two minutes walk to the the Torreone Bar/shop and just 1km away from the City of Cortona. Cortona is packed with all amenities: entertainment, eating & drinking, markets, shops and nightlife. Villa Rosa is a short distance from this hustle and bustle but she cossets you in its private and secluded garden and pool for pure relaxation.

Thanks Sue, always a pleasure to see you again at Villa Rosa. As you say it is an ideal location (I would even say perfect!) for both Cortona and the wider Tuscan region.

About the neighbourhood
Cortona is well serviced to make any holiday easy and enjoyable. At Villa Rosa we provide a welcome pack with ideas of things to do and there is also an information centre in the heart of Cortona that will help pack your holiday with activities from cooking classes to wine tasting to golf courses. English is widely spoken as Cortona has been aligned with The University of Georgia (USA) for summer school for over 30 years which has bought many English speakers to the town. Cortona is also the mecca for all those who love Frances Mayes and her Under the Tuscan Sun book and film. The locals are welcoming and generous in their hospitality. There are 5 supermarkets within a 10 minute drive, over 30 excellent restaurants in the City of Cortona which are well frequented by both...
Getting around
Two wonderful options: Hire a Driver for the day (or half day) or drive yourself. Let me know and i can provide you with lots of information to make the best out of your exploration of Tuscany.
