Never seen anything like this!
We have spent one amazing week in this fantastic house on top of the mountain in Toscana.
We were to families - 4 adults and 5 children (age 7-14). We had a great time!
The kids (and adults) loved the pool - it was clean and had a great size to play and swim. The garden and the terraces are simply amazing - the pergolas gives you the perfect shadow and a cozy and beautiful place to chill. The view over the valley... is breathtaking!
There are lot of toys to play with - inside and outside the house. The house is amazing as well. Our son Silas 12 years old, has the feeling, that we have stayed a week in an awesome castell!! The house is very old and full of history and personal things. There are 4 floors - or more... the house just keeps surprise you as you explore it. It also has to pizza ovens, and we succeeded in being the best pizza bakers in Toscana! That was a great and fun experience.
There is no air-condition in the house. Normally the thick walls in the house are able to cool the house, but we had around 35-37 degrees during the week, so the house was sometimes hot. Maybe some mobile fans could help :-)
The owner of the house, Becca and Justin are very kind and helpful. During the week they were in contact with us whenever we needed it. Elias 7 years old fell in love with a Pokemon towel (for the pool), and we asked Becca if he could buy it - she answered that he could have it! He was so happy :-)
The location of this place is fantastic - because you get to stay on top of a mountain with a great view. But at the same time you also feel a little isolated because it takes about 20-30 min. to get down, and the road is an adventure itself!! So, the coin has two sides: the location is a true blessing - you are "forced" to stay and relax and enjoy the the place with its peace and idyll, and at the same time a bit challenging, when you need to explore other parts of Toscana. But why should you go anywhere else, when you can stay here? :-)
We will remember this place always, and we would love to come back and relive this small piece of paradise.
Brilliant mountain villa
We stayed in this fabulous house in August 2016. We were 6 adults and 2 children, but we had no-one sleeping in the top room. There was lots of space.
It is right up a mountain – everything is steep, wild, with breath-taking views. The wildlife was stunning – lizards everywhere, wild boars, eagles, owls, all sorts of birds and bees and butterflies.
The house is stuffed with books and games. It’s clean and well-laid out, and the owners are friendly and helpful. A high-point was the local lady cooking dinner for us on the bee-terrace (be warned, there are MANY courses).
We enjoyed Cortona, and Castigliane del Lago on Lake Tresimeno. But mainly we lounged about in the pool or playing table-tennis & table-football.
Finding open food shops was tricky on the Sunday – it does take half an hour to drive anywhere. Stock up on the way.
The road up from Cortona requires nerves of steel.
It was a brilliant holiday and I’d go back tomorrow!
secluded spacious villa 20 mins from Cortona
This is the most spacious villa I have stayed in and managed to cope with 10 adults ( including 7 Uni students ) without a sense of us tripping over each other.I think the hillside setting is beautiful. It would suit two families or a family + grandparents who could escape if need be to a quiet part of the villa either indoors or outdoors. It has been well converted from several smaller houses with well finished decor , and has a lovely rambling feeling both indoors and outdoors with beautiful views though the windows of the hilly area in which it is set. The two kitchens could be useful ( although we only used the main kitchen and the second fridge in the smaller kitchen). The photos don't I think show that the outdoor area is really quite large with a number of mown grassy terraces ( four or even five of these) , on one of which is the pool which is big enough for eight adults to play a kind of improvised game of water polo.(!) There are outdoor sitting areas on both sides of the villa and so there is plenty of room to escape to somewhere quiet if need be.
Cortona is 20 mins away by car although if the weather is not too hot and one allows a few hours one might be able to walk in along the Etruscan road which runs along the hilltop above the house....( !?)
The owner is English and is very helpful and friendlyand can be contacted directly + has local English speaking contacts who show one around on arrival and maintain the pool + can also help in the event of any questions or problems.
We had a great week here and would thoroughly recommend it.
