Silvana's home was a beautiful and tranquil oasis during my recent stay in Cortona. It was perfectly situated, being a short walk to all the restaurants and shops in town, yet on a quiet and peaceful little street. The apartment is roomy and beautifully furnished in a tasteful mix of antiques and modern furnishings as well as lovely pictures on the walls and a well-outfitted kitchen. Silvana herself was a gracious host, going the extra mile to ensure my comfort during my stay. If I could give ten stars I would! Thank you, Silvana!

Great location. Very quiet and great for 4 people or a family. The location is unbeatable - just a couple of blocks from all the action and great restaurants. Silvana and Anna can tell you about a free parking lot wishing a few minutes walk from the apartment so you don't have to muscle your car through the narrow roads of Cortona. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!!

What a great way to start my AirBnB experience. The home is exactly as photographed and described. It's close to everything in Cortona yet it's surprisingly situated in a quiet neighborhood. There is AC in the bedrooms but I ended up using it only once as the combination of window shutters, stone floors, and thick walls keep it cool naturally. Like the neighborhood, the building is quiet. The house is on the north side of Cortona so it's especially close to the pay lot and the free lot (just below that). It beats walking up from the bottom of the city especially on hot days. The family that checked me in was lovely and despite my language difficulties managed to fill me in on all the home details and make me feel welcome. They really went out of their way for me. It was above and beyond. My only advice for those staying here is that the lobby/stairs aren't lit so just make sure you have your cell phone on you to light the way. It's not a big deal, just a tip. You're up five flights, but they're short so it's more like only three. This home is a great value for the price.

Silvana's apartment was perfect for us. It is an easy walk to the town center, but in a quiet location. I do recommend a small car for the roads up and parking, but also having the parking out front is a nice bonus. Silvana was communicative and great, as were Anna and Franco, who met us to let us in and show us around. Cortona was a perfect home base for exploring Tuscany, and we also enjoyed just staying in town for much of our visit.

We enjoyed our stay at Silvana's immensely. After visiting Cortona on 2 other occasions we wanted to have a longer more authentic stay and this choice was perfect. We were easily 2 minutes to the center of Cortona by foot and walked daily in many different directions exploring the town and vicinity. Arriving was a challenge as our GPS took us on a route that we could not fit our car through. We eventually found a way and it became easier as the week went by. We had a small Audi A3 suv. The apartment is 5 easy flights of stairs to the second floor. Everything was very clean and in great working condition. Well equipped except for a cheese grater and a toaster. Excellent shower (we only used one of them). There are only Italian tv channels. The internet works great but not in the the master bedroom as it is too far from the modem. We would definitely come again. Silvana was quick to answer any questions we had.

Silvana's home is wonderful! We enjoyed 3 magical nights there, fully enjoying all that Cortona has to offer. Please note, there are 5 flights of stairs to her apartment, which we did not mind, just mentioning in case this is an issue for some. She provided all the amenities to make us feel at home, including snacks, wine and water upon arrival - a lovely bonus! The communication was amazing, she is a lovely host. As a Super Host myself, I give Silvana my highest recommendation and I will be staying at her home on my next visit to Cortona!

Hello, I love to cook and... to eat. Tuscan cousine is the best! I like to go walking around and meet new people. I'd be happy to host you and your family in my place.
