“A relaxing paradise in the Tuscan hills”
Reviewed 10 March 2013 for a stay in August 2012

This the perfect spot for a completely relaxing holiday, and Kate and Andrew were extremely helpful from the moment we first contacted them. They were the perfect hosts, making us feel totally at home whilst always respecting our privacy. The cottage is very well looked after and extremely well equiped. It felt both homely and spacious, and we really did feel that our every need had been anticipated. Although temperatures were in the thirties for most of our stay, the apartment remained relatively cool, and lots of choice in terms of outside space meant that we could eat and relax in sun or shade as we chose. The swimming pool, a short walk from the house was impeccably maintained and very secluded with fantastic views along the valley.
We could quite happily have spent the whole week relaxing by the pool and enjoying the quiet beauty of the valley, but this area of Tuscany is so beautiful that some exploration is essential. We were already familiar with the charms of Cortona, having visited the area twice before, and spent several evenings enjoying its very special atmosphere and excellent restaurants.
We would certainly recommend this property to our friends and relatives but, perhaps more importantly, we really want to go back there ourselves!
