June 2012. This Villa is set in fantastic spot. Close to the amazing Le Celle monastery, but, make certain you have the directions. Although it is very close to Cortona, the small slip road can be missed! But, once there, you have arrived at Location Tranquility! It is a lovely home and all of us (9) thought this one of the best places we had stayed in Italy. The rooms have a lot of character simple decoration in keeping with the villa. The separate apartments used by our friends, had all the amenities for them and gave a little extra privacy and independence. The villa is very spacious and the pool and the gardens are very welcoming. The views form both the pool - but especially the large terraces are amazing. We spent many evening here just relaxing looking at the sun sets and thinking how very luck we were to have found this place. The proximity of Cortona and all its restaurants, shops etc was very useful. The Spar supermarket in the central square of Corotna had everything, but we also enjoyed wondering in and out of the various specialist butchers, grocers and delis. All added to the enjoyment of our stay here. What else can we say. Clean, comfortable, enjoyable. Cant wait to go back.

June 2012: You and your family will without doubt-be very pleased to have had a chance to stay here at Sonias place.. The villa and surrounding property are beautiful. The bedrooms and rooms are spacious and clean and quite charming. All of the bedrooms having fantastic views.. The villa was restored about 12 years ago to a high standard and is now a very lovely holiday home for families and friends to enjoy. Cortona is so close and we spent a number of evening s there trying the many restaurants, As it is quite centrally located to many of the famous hill towns it was a great choice for us. Sonias house is real find, great (excellent !! ) value providing us with everything we needed for a great tuscan vacation. Thanks a lot.

My husband and I recently (August 2012) spent a really special two week-end at Villa Sonia The whole experience was well above our expectations: Very comfortable clean accommodation, helpful and warm hospitality and attention to detail. The terraces and the views they provide are simply fantastic - and, with delicious food and wine the endless Tuscan countryside. is still in our minds. .. This was the perfect oasis to recharge our batteries! We also appreciated a lot all the useful suggestions by terry to explore the beautiful surrounding area like real locals,. The fabulous (truly fabulous) Le Celle monastery was just so special. Now we know the Villa of choice, no doubt we will be in awe the next time we visit! Thank you!
