Review by Irl German from TX

apartments on estate near Cortona, Tuscany East

The Villa, photo by Beverly German


October 29 - November 5, 2005 , One week.


Private location just outside Cortona with spetacular view of Camucia and the valley. Many olive trees and other vegetation. We love the area.

Nearby Amenities

Cortona up, Camucia down. Both in walking distance but steep both ways. You need to be in good physical condition. Otherwise, a short drive.

The House/Apartment

Extremely well kept historical building in a quiet, peaceful setting. There was a living/dining room, a kitchen, a bedroom and a bath. The apartment is on the upper floor at the top of a good flight of stairs above another, larger apartment.


The outdoor sitting area is shared only with the other apartment but we always had it to ouselves. There is a pool.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

Good furniture, everything clean and well maintained. Adequate seating.


It had a very comfortable bed in a well arranged room. The bath, which was small but clean and well organized was easily accessible from the bedroom.


It was adequate for from two to four people and we enjoyed using it for our morning and evening meals, usually eating out at lunch. We cooked full meals but did not bake.

Problems or Bonuses

It was better than we expected it to be.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

We we treated wonderfully by everyone. The on-site people spoke enough English to fulfill our needs. The place was in realty better than expected from the description. We paid about $500 for the first week in November.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

I can't wait to go back and I want us to take our best friends with us and share the larger apartment. For me it was a life-expanding experience and a true taste of Tuscany.

Things to do in this area

Cortona is an ancient and medieval Italian town. It has many shops and restaurants which we enjoyed visiting. There is grocery shopping there and supermarkets in Camucia and nearby Arezzo. It's a good location from which to access all of that region of Italy. Access to train travel is in Camucia.
