We stayed at Villa Marsili for 4 days and loved the staff and the hotel. Almost perfect location in Cortona since you can walk to everything (although up a rather steep hill.) The views from the rooms are amazing. On a clear day you can almost see all of Tuscany it seems. Julia was especially helpful arranging reservations and making...

Cortona itself is a magical place - a must visit when in Tuscany. Villa Marsili is a lovely hotel a very short walk to the centre of the historic town. Rooms are tiny but beautifully kept and clean as a whistle. Breakfast is included and is a delicious, plentiful buffet. The best feature of Villa Marsili though is definitely the...

The hotel director saved the day when he alerted us to a rail strike scheduled the day of our departure. He painstakingly researched which line we would have to connect to, where to catch the train and what time we needed to arrive at the station in order to get a refund on tickets previously purchased (the line that was...

We stayed here five nights in May. The staff was gracious, friendly and always willing to help with anything. Everyone speaks English very well. The breakfast was wonderful and they provided tea snacks in the late afternoons. Our bed was comfortable and linens were high end. It was a treat to finally have a great bathtub and sparkling clean bathroom....

The staff here is excellent - friendly and helpful. The room was fine - large, clean, and charming with great views out over the lake. Breakfast was good (hint - you're not just limited to what's on display - you can have eggs cooked to order). That said, it's a hike uphill to town on narrow roads with no sidewalk,...
