“So great that it was hard to leave”
Reviewed January 27, 2012 for a stay in May 2010

I stayed at the lovely Villa Cristina Contesse with my wife and friends. As soon as we arrived we fell in love the property and scrapped our planned stay in Florence so we could spend more time in Cortona. The location is fantastic as you can walk into charming town center - our most memorable meals were in Cortona especially Canta Napoli. We took many day trips to visit neighboring towns and explore the Tuscan countryside.

The villa itself is wonderful. The sunset view is amazing. I recommend sitting out on the patio with some cheese and crackers and a bottle of Italian wine. The owner, Nic, is a very charming chap that made sure we had everything we needed. He can even direct you to the Prada outlet and give fashion advice but he is totally straight as far as we could tell. We look forward to returning to this amazing place and eating tons of pasta and gelato sometime soon.

“The best of everything”
Reviewed August 10, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We are just back from 2 weeks at this lovely villa. We were a party of five that shrank to two so it was a lot of room but we used it well and enjoyed being alone. It was our wedding anniversary and we brought road bikes to explore the area. Great biking, very steep but with a pool waiting it is possible! A car is not necessary but we had one and ventured to several nearby areas. The house was perfect for us, the walk to town for dinner was pleasant and a good workout. Cortona has no shortage of fantastic restaurants, and amazingly we had great experiences at all of them. The owner, Nic, is what made the place really stand out. He is close by, stops in to clean the pool and is very caring toward his guests. Two weeks was a luxury but we left wanting to go back for a month!
