"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.

The space

"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.

Cortona is the perfect getaway and Samantha's place was great for our family of four (with a 3 year old and a 6 month old). Samantha was great about helping us with whatever we needed. Everyone else in Cortona was incredible as well. Highly recommend the place and the city.

The apartment was fantastic with amazing views over the Cortona rooftops and distant hills. It was perfect for three adults, providing soft, comfortable beds and was very clean. The kitchen was very well equipped (although no microwave). Check in was smooth, Samantha was quick to respond to all of our email enquiries and always offered helpful advice.

We had a most enjoyable 3 week stay in Samantha's apartment in Cortona. Perfectly situated to explore Tuscany, Umbria and further afield. Exceptionally clean with lovely views.

The Sophia Room at Casa Di Amici was as quaint and well decorated as its pictures! It had all that we needed for our time in Cortona, comfortable beds, great kitchen set-up, washing machine, cosy lounge room with great views of the Tuscan sunsets. The check-in and check-out process was very autonomous but Samantha was great in communicating and making sure we had all we needed. Any questions I had she answered quickly and without issue. Cortona is a great town with a nice local feel and friendly people, if you are wanting to get away without contending with lots of tourists. It has fantastic restaurants and is a good base for day trips to explore the Tuscan region.

A semana que passei na Casa di Amici (apartamento Sofia) foi perfeita. O imóvel é claro, arejado e absolutamente aconchegante, com uma linda vista dos telhados da cidade, e dispõe de tudo que é necessário para uma estadia confortável. O contato com a proprietária foi sempre rápido e fácil, bem como a pessoa responsável em Cortona. Me senti em casa! Recomendo de olhos fechados. Espero voltar um dia a esta belíssima cidade e me hospedar de novo no apartamento Sofia.

Samantha User Profile

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.
