Reviews Casa delle Fragole

“Beautiful home, great location!”

We enjoyed our stay very much and would gladly recommend this house to our friends! Cortona was great. More laid back and less touristy than some other places we visited. It was the perfect way to spend the last week of our time in Italy!

Stacy A., July 2019

“Nice place to rent”

Overall we had a very nice experience during our stay. The house is nice and there is a nice swimming pool. It could be handy to make a path towards the pool though. The atmosphere is nice and the view is also great. Cortona is a nice little town to visit.
Also there is a very nice bbq spot. The welcoming of the owners was very attentful and pleasant. Every few days someone came to clean the pool and after a week there were brought new towels and sheets.

Wouter T, July 2019

“Great location, comfortable, owners take care!”

Superb restaurants in town, many options for shopping nearby, pizza and beer a few minutes away! Arranged cooking classes, wine tasting in Montipuliciano, market in Arezzo…. and chilled by the pool with some drinks, great for families.

Pittoresque Tuscany villages and beautiful nature

Discover Tuscany and Umbria

Its location makes it the perfect starting point for day trips to discover the most beautiful historic and artistic cities of Tuscany and Umbria, all reachable by car in a short time (like Siena, Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto and many others).

Many visitors come in search of fine art, others to explore the extraordinary countryside. Gourmets and wine buffs descend on Tuscany and Umbrie to enjoy the simple yet wonderful cuisine and wine. Walkers enjoy the mountain paths, cyclists the rolling hills, summer vacationers the sea coast and islands. Students come to learn the beautiful Italian language and culture. There is a lot to see and do, the difficulty is really where to start.

Cortona

Located on the border between Tuscany and Umbria, on a hill at approximately 600 meters above sea level, Cortona is a small town that bursts with energetic flair. Dating back to the Etruscan times, Cortona holds a wealth of historical beauty. There are many churches to visit, Etruscan tombs open to the public, Le Celle which was home to St Francis of Assisi, the Cortona museum, the theatre, and the old streets alone provide long days of exploring. Its diminutive size adds to its appeal, as this means it is easily accessible on foot. As you’ll find, there’s plenty to discover, from quaint shops selling local handicrafts, to buzzing piazzas and a good selection of museums. Grab a coffee and cake, or perhaps indulge in some fine Italian ice cream as you watch the world coasting by.
Because of its geographical location, Cortona is an important tourist destination. Surrounding towns include Arezzo, Montepulciano, Siena, Perugia, Assisi, Florence, Gubbio, Orvieto, Pienza and Lake Trasimeno.

Arrezzo

Arezzo is a 25 minute drive from the Villa. It’s one of the wealthiest towns in Tuscany due to it’s production of gold and jewellery which they supply to shops all over Europe. There is a large antique market in the town on the first weekend of every month, it is probably the largest fair of it’s kind in Italy. A smaller one in Cortona is held on the third Sunday of the month.

Montepulciano

Montepulciano, just a 20 minute drive from the Villa is know throughout the world for it’s wine. Wine connoisseurs consider it’s Vino Nobile among Italy’s best. The medieval town stands on the top of a hill with amazing views of the Val di Chiana. There are many places to eat and taste wine in the town and in the countryside surrounding it.

Perugia

The Etruscan city of Perugia is a 30 minute drive. It is the capital city of Umbria, full of art, history and hosts the annual Jazz festival which is one of the most important in Europe. It’s National Gallery in the main street holds many masterpieces by Italian Renaissance artists.

Assisi

Assisi is a beautiful 45 minute drive away. You pass Lake Trasimeno, Perugia and Spello on the way, all lovely places to stop for lunch or a passagata on the way home. Assisi is the birth place of St Fancis, the patron saint of animals, the poor and one of the two patrons of Italy. The Basilica is a world heritage site which contains his tomb. There are many incredible frescos and amazing history to be found here, a trip to Assisi is a real experience and never forgotten.
