"ABSOLUTELY PRECIOUS! & LOCATION PERFECTION!" (happy guest)
Waiting for you, as if standing still in time on a quiet cobblestone street in the heart of Cortona’s historical centre, sits Casa di Amici.
"Stunning view of the area!"
This beautiful penthouse apartment of approximately 55 m2 (600 sqft) has classic Italian beamed ceilings, a wood burning fireplace for cozy winter nights, and unforgettable Tuscan views that everyone dreams of.
The completely renovated and decorated separate living room is filled with cozy furniture to sink into after a long day touring the region. Flat screen TV with DVD and good selection of movies.
Enjoy the new romantic kitchen by preparing the local delicacies you picked up that day.
The quaint and efficient kitchen is fully stocked with a fridge, stove, dishwasher, oven, coffee maker, eating bar/table and more.
After you simply cannot keep your eyes open any longer, retire to the master bedroom and fall into the new memory foam European King sized bed with fluffy down comforters, dreamy pillows and super soft Italian cotton sheets. Drift off to sleep gazing at the vaulted ceilings above.
In the second bedroom, you will find similar vaulted ceilings hovering over two single memory foam beds with the same quality mattresses, soft sheets and cozy comforters.
Your newly renovated bathroom with vaulted beamed ceilings is filled with thick fluffy towels, an assortment of toiletries, hair dryer, and consists of a toilet, bath tub/shower and clothes washing machine.
The Sophia is the perfect getaway for up to 4 people.

We are a Canadian family that lives part time in Italy. We fell in love with the region and people ten years ago and can't help coming back year over year.
We decided to open Casa di Amici (a friendly house) to share with our friends, family the experiences and love of the food, culture and lifestyle that is only found in Italy.
We hope to welcome you to Cortona and help make your trip to Tuscany filled with memories.
