Casa Cortona Tuscany

  based on 2 reviews
Description

Surrounded by the rolling hills of the Valdichiana valley between Cortona and Montepulciano, situated in a small hamlet are the four apartments of Casa Cortona.

The apartments are well kept, clean and stylish with a large pool on the premises and only few km from Cortona and Camucia. Towns like Montepulciano, Arezzo, Siena and Perugia are easy to reach. The area is ideal for guests who like to go for a bike ride.

Casa Cortona has four spacious and well kept apartments for 4 to 7 people. In the hamlet is a small grocery shop and bar with daily fresh bread. Camucia, at 2 km, has large supermarkets, banks, post office, some restaurants and a railway station with direct connections to Rome and Florence. Every Thursday morning there is a large market in Camucia.

All apartments are spacious and well furnished. They each have a dishwasher and a washing machine. There is an open fire place in all apartments (Bako has the BBQ in the kitchen). In every apartment a wifi internet connection is possible, taking your own laptop (a small payment is required). Each terrace has iron wrought garden furniture and each apartment has its own barbecue. There are fly screens.

There is a fifth apartment where the family lives. They have a dog. The pool is a bit away from the apartments, not immediately visible, and is 14m by 7m. Its depth is from 1m to 2.20m. The pool is surrounded by olive trees and there is a changing room and bathroom. Behind the pool is a small field with a volleyball net and the possibility to play soccer.

Mind that these apartments are on plain ground, not on top of a hill with views all around.

Distances:
Cortona 5 km, Lago Trasimeno 15 km, Montepulciano 20 km, Arezzo 30 km, Siena 60 km, Perugia 50 km, A1 exit Bettole 20 km

Villa in Umbria
Nederlandse feedback gekopieerd van de vorige Villa in Umbria website

2016: Hallo Saskia en Sylvia, Afgelopen weekend zijn wij teruggekeerd van onze vakantie bij casa Cortona. We hebben het uitstekend naar onze zin gehad. Op de eerste maandag na hebben we prachtig weer gehad van rond de 30 graden. We hebben heel veel gezien van de omgeving en de locatie was ook uitstekend. Prima bedden en inrichting. We hebben gebruik gemaakt van de informatie die je van de omgeving had gegeven. Het feest in Bavagna was zeker de moeite waard om dat ’s avonds te rijden. We hebben veel buiten de deur gegeten wat dan ook en echt vakantie gevoel geeft. Wij zelf hebben in Friesland (Nederland) een vakantievilla die wij verhuren. Daardoor kijken we met een andere bril naar andere vakantievilla’s. Als wij als tip mogen geven. Meer bestek, dat was er zo weinig dat je snel de afwasmachine moest aanzetten. Dat hebben we niet gedaan en hebben steeds met de hand afgewassen. Maar het is zo zonde om hem aan te zetten. Daarnaast is het misschien handig dat er een Nederlandse beschrijving van de wasmachine boven de machine hangt. De ene keer dat we hem hebben gebruikt spoelde hij eerst 3 uur. Dat is zonde van de elektriciteit en water wat die gebruikt. Maar dit zijn alleen maar tips. In onze woning hadden wij geen Wifi ontvangst. We moesten daarvoor bij de buren gaan staan. De vakantie woning en locatie met een mooi zwembad was zo geweldig dat wij dat ook zullen uitdragen naar vrienden en kennissen. Dank je wel voor alle voorinformatie die je had gestuurd. We zullen jullie site niet weggooien zodat we in de toekomst daar nog eens gebruik van kunnen maken. Vriendelijke groeten Hans en Jeannet Margés 2012: Feedback op Casa Cortona: ronduit fantastisch! Uiterst vriendelijke Simone die ons gratis van internet gebruik liet maken. Zeer luxe en groot appartement (Juno) met airco en van alle gemakken voorzien. Prachtige tuin en terras, goed onderhouden. Een een heeeeeeel mooi, groot en superschoon zwembad met toilet en douche erbij en comfortabele bedjes. Er was ook voldoende schaduw rond het zwembad. Het was er, kortom, goed toeven. De ligging is ook perfect, zo dicht bij Cortona. Een idee hebben wij nog voor Simone; een dakje van riet boven de parkeerplaatsen. Kleine moeite, heel groot plezier met die hitte. Al met al hebben we een hele fijne vakantie gehad via jullie! Gr, Saskia 2011: Hello Willemijn & Saskia, Thank you for your email asking for feedback. Firstly, we were recommended to use Villa in Umbria by my sister and are very happy that we did. You have communicated with us very well and have answered any questions promptly. Your new web site and client information is very attractive and easy to use and there are many villas to choose from. We travelled to Italy to become married and needed a place to stay the week before our 'wedding week' fairly close to Arezzo. We chose Casa Cortona, where both my parents and us could stay close together but in separate apartments. We were late on arrival, but this was no problem to the owners. Simone was very welcoming and shown us around the apartments. I had forgotten to order a highchair, but Simone offered us one if we needed it. The cot was ready with sheet supplied. We had everything we needed, washing machine, dishwasher, BBQ and a large family kitchen. We also loved the window shutters and net guards as we could have the shutters closed to minimise the heat getting in but we could also have the windows open without fear of the mosquitos getting in! The pool was clean, had access to pool wc and an area to dine there too. However, I definitely think that there should be a smaller 'paddling' type pool for the babies as the pool is quite deep, even for my mum who cannot swim and felt a bit out of her depth as she is only 5 foot tall. There would be space on the lawned area by the pool for this to be implemented and this would have had a great impact on our holiday. This is the only aspect that we consider should be improved. Simones mum and dad were staying directly opposite us but we did not feel that we were being 'watched' at all. Everyone was really laid back, but were around if we needed them. They also ran a little shop in Cortona and this made us feel quite welcome there when we went to visit. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider staying there again. Thanks again for your service and look forward to using Villa in Umbria again in the future. James and Cathy 2010: Zomer 2010 hebben we met 2 volwassenen en 2 kinderen (4 en 1 jaar oud) het appartement Bako / Casa Cortona bezocht. Het is een luxe appartement dat ruim is opgezet. We waren blij verrast met de ruimte en de voorzieningen (wasmachine, tv, vaatwasser, oven). Helaas, deed de satelliet tv het af minder en was er geen geluid, wat jammer was gedurende het WK Voetbal.. we keken dan maar naar de Italiaanse TV die het wel altijd deed. De zoon van de eigenaar met de naam Simone spreekt minder goed Engels, maar zijn vriendin assisteert hem daarbij en daarmee kan goed gecommuniceerd worden. Simone is erg behulpzaam en komt praktisch dagelijks langs om bijv. het gras te maaien of een andere klus te klaren. Gezien de ligging van het appartement konden we uitstekend zicht houden op onze beide kinderen. Het zwembad is ruim opgezet. De omgeving kent vele leuke stadjes om te bezoeken. Wij vonden het een leuke bestemming om te verblijven. R. - G. - T. - E. Dag Willemijn, Ja, wij hebben het goed gehad, gunstig gelegen nabij stadje Cortona. We hebben leuke uitstapjes gemaakt en hadden elke dag warm zonnig weer. 2 dikke pluspunten: * lekker ruim zwembad met diep gedeelte * airco in huis (Juno appartement) Minpunten: * inrichting woonkamer karig. Wij waren met 4 personen, als je met 7 personen bent zijn er maar 1 2-persoons bank en 2 stoelen. * ca 1/3 van de gloeilampen was kapot (bijvoorbeeld in de badkamer 1 van de 2 lampen). Ik heb het wel gemeld maar ik betwijfel of dit is vervangen na ons verblijf. * op jullie site geef je aan dat het te lopen is naar een winkel waar je 's ochtends brood kan halen, dat is echt te ver om te lopen hoor! Ik kan het huis met zwembad wel aanbevelen, dit heb ik ook gedaan bij mijn collega. groetjes, K. de W. Hallo, Wij hebben een heerlijke vakantie gehad in Umbrië en nét Toscane. De eigenaar is een echt zakenmannetje die weinig tijd en aandacht besteed aan zijn gasten. Zolang het huis goed onderhouden blijft (de vaste 'soort van conciërge' die al 7 jaar daar werkte vertrok de week na ons) heb je de eigenaar ook niet nodig. Het zwembad is schitterend: heel diep en groot en ook voor kleine kinderen heel leuk (want er zitten een paar brede treden waarop gespeeld kan worden). Het appartement (Bacco) was heel goed en heeft een afwasautomaat (ook wel leuk in de vakantie). De omgeving vond ik wat vlak en saai, hoewel Cortona heel dichtbij heel mooi is. Er zaten veel muggen, wat mogelijk door het meer van Trasimeno relatief dichtbij komt. Bij deze, hartelijke groet, W.

From 2012: Feedback about Casa Cortona: totally wonderful! Very friendly Simone who has provided free wifi. Very luxury and spacious apartment (Juno) with airconditioning and fitted with everything one could need. Beautiful garden and terrace, well maintained. A very nice clean and big swimming pool with toilet and shower nearby and comfortable sun beds. There was ample shade around the pool. In short, it was a nice place to be. The apartments are situated perfectly, very close to Cortona. We do have one idea for Simone, to make a car cover … that is not a lot of work yet very nice in the summer heat. We had a lovely holiday. Best wishes, Saskia 2011: Hello Willemijn & Saskia, Thank you for your email asking for feedback.

Thanks again for your service and look forward to using Villa in Umbria again in the future. James and Cathy From 2010: Summer 2010 we, 2 parents and 2 children (4 and 1 year old) stayed at apartment Bako of Casa Cortona. It is a spacious luxury apartment. We were pleasantly surprised by the space and all comfort (dishwasher, washing machine and oven). Unfortunately our satellite TV was a bit difficult now and then and gave no sound which was a pity during the World Championship football. In those cases we switched to Italian TV which worked just fine. The son of the owner Simone is not really fluent in English but his girlfriend helps him out which makes for good communication. Simone is very good-natured and practically passes every day to mow the grass or do something else. Because of its position we could keep a really good eye on our children from the apartment. The pool area is spacious. The surrounding area sports many nice towns. We really liked this place. RGTE Dear Saskia, Hereby a short reaction. We had a great time! The location was perfect for three families enjoying their holiday together, not least thanks to the walled garden adjacent to all the apartments we rented. Lovely pool! The owner was very kind and helpful. The location gave us the opportunity to make lovely outings and we had very good weather. Apart from the fact that a toilet seat was loose and a cabinet made it hard to sit down on it and a showerhead was difficult to put in the right position we have no comments. Ah, the dishwasher was somewhat difficult to start. We already reported this to Simone. As far as we are concerned we would really recommend this place. Kind regards, M.
