“Perfect Romantic Get Away!”
Reviewed 22 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My husband and I had visited Cortona twice in years past, but only for a meal as we traveled through Tuscany. We made Cortona our home base this time around and quickly found this holiday house through Air B&B. What a fantastic find!

Right from the start Ester made us feel at home. She met us in the car park at the nearest Porto to the property. She gave us a brief tour of the property with instructions for all the necessary bits, then left us to enjoy the comforts of home. There are three floors in total, two suites with a living/dining space between. Two couples could easily have privacy while traveling together. The common space is small but well appointment with a great fireplace to sit by on a chilly night.

As you step out side from the living space you are treated with the most incredible views of Tuscany. If you exit from the lower level entrance you you find yourself on one of the typical narrow streets of Cortona only 5 minute walk away from the town center.

In February Cortona is sleepy and some of the restaurants/shops are either closed or have limited hours for the winter season. This is a perfect town to settle into as you explore Tuscany. With such an affordable rate we were able to justify overnight stays in both Florence and Rome.

Overall I would highly recommend Allie Pietre! We loved it!

“Gorgeous Tuscan Getaway”

The house was lovely and spacious whilst still maintaining a cosy atmosphere. It was well equipped and in a fantastic location. It was both very close to the town and had stunning views across the valley.

Ester was lovely and made us feel very welcome, organising a taxi to pick us up from the train station and leaving breakfast for us for the following morning.

I would definitely recommend this house for couples or a group of friends looking for a relaxing time in Tuscany.

“Stylish and atmospheric holiday home”
Reviewed 9 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Alle Pietre is a stylish, beautifully presented holiday home in a quiet location in the old town of Cortona, with everything we needed.
The location is superb with good, easy access to the town centre, restaurants and shops. There is free parking close by, and truly breathtaking views from the terrace outside the house.
The owner, Ester, was most welcoming and helpful information was available for visitors.

“Perfection”

This was our second stay in Alle Pietre and it was every bit as wonderful as the first. This was our 10th vacation in Italy, yet the 1st time we have returned to the same location and accomodation.
Ester presents a beautiful house in a georgous site overlooking the Val Di Chiana. The house has everything you could possibly need. Cortona has numerous restaurants, cafes, shops etc. to suit all tastes - just a stroll from the door.
Alle Pietre really feels like "Our home in Tuscany". We will go back to Italy again and again - and I have no doubt that we will stay in Alle Pietre.
