I had the BEST time at the B&B of Villa Valenza in Cortona! It was my home away from home for 2 weeks in January, as I was travelling solo writing a book, and Alessandro was an amazing host. He was so incredibly kind, helpful and friendly, even though there was a slight language barrier, he was always smiling. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and cozy, and I loved the heating rack in the bathroom, which means warm towels after your shower, in case the water gets cold. :) The fireplace in the living room was such a wonderful treat, and I spent many nights curled up there using the Free Wifi. :) I felt so safe and comfortable in this peaceful oasis! Alessandro was so kind to drive me to and from the train station, and always helpful with anything I needed, including making sure there was fire in the fireplace, or offering me a cappuccino even at night. I LOVED his homemade croissants in the morning! YUM! It's a beautiful 15-20 minute walk into the town center, through the park. His family owns the restaurant in town, Il Cacciatore where you will have homemade, delicious Toscana cuisine. The pizzas and pastas are delicious, and everyone is very friendly and welcoming! I HIGHLY Recommend this Villa. You will not find nicer people anywhere. Alessandro is a true Italian gentleman! I miss Cortona already and my home away from home, Villa Valenza. As Alessandro says: "My home is your home." I hope to return again soon!! Tutto Grazie Mille Alessandro!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set in charming green surroundings only a stone’s throw from the centre of Cortona Villa Valenza offers bed & breakfast service and tourist apartments with swimming-pool and restaurant. The villa is located in a quieter and less known part of Cortona, the "Parterre," a promenade leading from the historical centre to the hilltop, the fortress of Girifalco and the sanctuary of Santa Margherita. From the historical centre you will be able to get to Villa Valenza with a five minute stroll down the promenade of Parterre (closed off to traffic). The villa can also be reached by car driving to the top of the hill and taking a turn down to the sporting facilities in Torreone. You will get to the villa after driving down a winding cypress-lined road going around the western side of the hill. The villa was originally built in the mid 1900s and was recently converted to house a bed & breakfast (rooms with private bathroom) as well as holiday apartments for 2 to 4 guests. The building is spread over two floors and has private parking. The swimming-pool located next-door is open to the general public from May through to September and is part of a large sporting complex including also tennis courts (open both in the summer and in the winter) and a five-a-side court. ... more less
