Apartment overview - owner's description

Beautiful designer two bedroom apartment in the historical centre of Cortona, Tuscany.

Perhaps best known these days as the setting for the book and movie “Under the Tuscan Sun,” gorgeous hillside Cortona has a long history dating back even before its time as an important Etruscan center.

A small but charming town in the Valdichiana, Cortona is in the province of Arezzo in southern Tuscany. The city, enclosed by stone walls dating back to Etruscan and Roman times, sits on the top of a hill about 600 meters (about 1968 feet) above sea level.

This dominant position over the valley offers a spectacular view from all over the town of the surrounding valley and even Lake Trasimeno. The heart of Cortona is Piazza della Repubblica, with the Palazzo Comunale or town hall building overlooking the square.

Although not a large city, Cortona offers many interesting places to visit, among these the Diocesan Museum (where you can admire a beautiful panel painting of the Annunciation by Beato Angelico) and the MAEC (The Etruscan Academy Museum of the City of Cortona), where it is possible to see many artifacts found in the Etruscan archaeologist sites in the area. You can also request additional information about the Archaeological Park at the museum.

In addition there are many wonderful places to eat, have an Aperitif or just sip a cafe and people watch. Casa di Amici is just steps away from everything!

We loved our stay. The flat was really nice, but the shower was over a tiny bath - be careful not to slip over. Samantha was very prompt with communication before and during our stay. The flat was close to everything - just short walks to all attractions. Getting to park the car at the church was through very narrow streets - an adventure in itself! Cortona is by far my favourite place to visit so far and the flat had a lovely ambience. The second bedroom had two small singles. Unfortunately they couldn't be put together. The mattresses were comfy.

Es un lugar que esta perfecatamente ubicado, muy bien equipado, es para cuatro personas comodamente, tal vez el baño es un poco pequeño Las indicaciones fueron exactas para llegar y para estacionar. La cocina esta muy completa. El centro es de facil llegada . Desde Cortona recorrimos toda la Toscana sin problemas Un placer para los sentidos Samantha se ocupo de toda la logistica y no tuvimos problemas

My extended family stayed in the Marcelo and Sofia apartments. The booking process was simple. Samantha was incredibly helpful with developing our travel plans. She has a rich knowledge of traveling in Italy. Indeed, she is a great ambassador for country! Her love of the area is infectious. Cortona is a beautiful, quaint hilltop town. It has plenty of amenities, but not in the least "touristy." The people of Cortona are very kind and welcoming. We were particularly impressed with how accepting of children the people are. Most locals speak some degree of English which makes getting by a breeze. There are plenty of affordable delicious, restaurants in town. We were very pleased with the accommodations. The apartments are located in a quiet part of the town and about a two minute walk from the main square. Free parking is available very close by. We felt very relaxed and at home in the apartments which have been newly renovated and decorated. They are clean and well maintained. The kitchens had everything we needed. There is a washer, iron, and hairdryer a in each apartment which were much appreciated. Samantha thoughtfully provided us a crib for our toddler. The beds were very comfortable. Cortona is a great base of operations for exploring Tuscany and Umbria. From Cortona, we did day trips to Montepulciano, Perugia, Lucca, Siena, Florence, and Populonia. Cortona is an easy two hour drive from Rome. I highly recommend staying here. Dave

We are a Canadian family that fell in love with Italy over a decade ago. We stumbled upon Casa di Amici quite by chance and knew with a little work, and a lot of love, they would make the perfect place to stay for our friends, family and visitors to Cortona. Opened in 2015, Casa di Amici is an independent house, with three designer apartments, smack dab in the historical centre of Cortona. Our North American perspective, combined with all of the things that make Italy spectacular, is sure to make your stay safe, comfortable, and memorable.
