-nothing to complain
Loved the location, easy drive into Cortona and surrounding towns...the grounds are perfect...and the accomodation all around was good. We were able to cook meals in our "apartment", and take baths. The pool would have been lovely (salt water - and remained open later in the season than normal to accommodate guests) but we didn't swim because the weather was not warm enough in our opinion. Donato was willing to show us other rooms on site (we were curious to see the apartment with the 2 large arch windows), talked through the herbs growing on site (I used the rosemary in one of my meals) and even loaned us Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, & salt & pepper so we didn't have to buy them for the few days we were there. He was lovely & helpful!
The monastero backs onto a country road...it's not a busy road, but when cars go by at night and early morning they woke us. Also the bed was quite big but uncomfortable.
Incredible value. Beautiful farmhouse set in beautiful grounds, great swimming pool, BBQ grills, you name it, it had it all. The owner could not have been nicer or more helpful. We are recommending this place to our friends and we'll be returning.
Central location at the foot hills of Cortona. Our unit had it's own balcony, ideal for having our meals. It was nice to come back after a day of touring to make our own meal and relax.
No complaints, however the kitchen could use a few more utensils/pots.
Donato our host was so helpful and friendly. We had a two bedroom apt with a living room and fabulous view of Tuscany! Definitely a great place..close to everything if you have a car
Wifi a bit sketchy but what do you expect in a building 800 years old?
An old monastery or farmhouse tastefully converted for accommodation. The apartments have quaint atmosphere, and equipped with all modern facilities. The wifi works quickly, the kitchen is fully equipped with utensils and machines. The rooms are nice with a beautiful view of the garden, the bed comfortable an big size, it's enough for a two-meter tall man! :) The garden is beautifull! Large cars parking on the edge of the garden. The owner is very helpful and kind.
Quiet area just outside city, plenty of parking, clean room , comfortable bed
No lobby to speak of, no common area, no breakfast on site unless you cook in room
Lovely spacious apartment. Owner came to find us when we couldn't find it.
Shower (in bath) a bit tricky to use, but this is a small criticism.
Beautiful location down the hill from the city of Cortona. The grounds were very beautiful! We stayed in the three bedroom apartment which a very good size. The wifi worked well. The people were very friendly and helpful with places to visit in the area.
The beds were not very comfortable. The hot water in the showers fluctuated from very hot to cold, it was hard to regulate. Next time we will stay in a location that offered breakfast so we could sit and enjoy the countryside, not have to drive into to town to have coffee and tea.
Friendly and very helpful personnel. Old, stylish house with plenty of space and quite well equipped bathroom and kitchen. Great stay for 10 people. Everything well maintained (grass, swimming pool, etc.). We felt like at home. Everything like described and even more than we expected! Thank you.
Visit this unique place, amazing garden, historic view, excellent rooms... Very near to the old town of Cortona!!!!
Very quaint and old fashioned, very much in character for the area Swimming pool very nice and clean and new sun loungers Donato, the owner, was very friendly and helpful and even came us to rescue us when we were lost on our arrival.
Shower over the non en-suite bath needs upgrading - difficult to direct All TV channels in Italian
Great, friendly staff Quiet location yet very near Cortona Wonderful charming atmosphere
Fantastic location near Cortona with beautiful grounds. We had a great time relaxing in the patio area outside our apartment. The staff were great.
Nice place for car travelers to explore surroundings and relax. Exellent.
Good location just below Cortona for those who want a quiet setting Great ambience to the property--well restored and furnished A wonderful place to stay--will definitely be back!
really love this place, so pity we only stayed for 1 night....
only a little bit far away from the town, so maybe not suitable for the one who are not driving. .
Donato was the perfect friendly and helpful host. Location was key--central to support services, sightseeing, shopping! We will definitely return. Thank you, Donato.
We were booked in for one night and loved it so much we stayed four nights. The apartment is spacious and comfortable with a real Tuscan feel about it. Very relaxing in a rural setting with Cortona less than 10 minutes away. Donata made us feel welcome and provided much information about Cortona and surrounding areas. Ideally located for exploring neighbouring towns and villages. Donata provided excellent hospitality to us and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, a home away from home.
Nothing to dislike
Lots of space and character. A real retreat from hotel living. Relaxed and friendly, lovely outdoor areas too.
Wifi not great, hot water issues. Kitchen provided with gas Hobbs, oven and microwave but nothing to cook in or with. No wine glasses, no tea towel. Little things, but would have made a big difference. Like many rural Italian spots, power trips out when you plug in a hair dryer. Not a big issue, but has to affect this rating
no salt and peper in the kitchen
Helpful staff. Nice fireplace. Ambiance.
