Best situation in Cortona!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for four nights in this lovely apartment. Anyone with a love of history will appreciate how unique it is. Great kitchen, easy parking, beautiful bath. Lots of space. Lucia and Patricia were so helpful and we loved meeting little Nico. Cortona is a great city and there are so many places of interest nearby. Strolling the streets and enjoying the delicious food and wine of Tuscany was a treat. Would definitely return to this property!

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely stay here. You really cannot fault this apartment, it has everything you need and more. Lucia made us really welcome even though we arrived later than expected. Lucia's mum, Patricia, who lives next door, is a lovely lady and is never too busy to stop and chat. The town of Cortona is a perfect place to stay, lots of restaurants, cafés and bars, and we enjoyed our evenings sat in the piazza by the theatre watching the world go by. We are sure to return.

Wonderful Apartment with Fantastic Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Although February may not be the most ideal time to visit Cortona weather wise- the accommodations were outstanding! The apartment is beautiful- including a new kitchen with everything you need. The real stars are the owners though. Patrizia lives next door and we had a fantastic cooking class culminating into a delicious fun lunch. Lucia speaks wonderful english and could not have been more helpful. She picked us up at the airport and was available for anything we needed. It was like having your own personal tour guide who is game for anything! I know I have made friends for a lifetime and will definitely come back to Le Mura Etrusche. Hopefully in the spring/summer or fall to enjoy the spectacular garden!

When in Cortona you must stay at Le Mura Etrusche

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Le Mura Etrusche for 9 fantastic days. Lucia, Patrizia (Lucia's mother), and Gian Luca (Lucia's husband) are the best hosts one could ever hope for. From the beginning of our visit right up to when we left (well even after we tried to leave as we had flat tire on rental car and Lucia helped us get tire changed and then took us to place where could get the tire fixed and get back on the road) we were made to feel like part of the family. When you stay here be sure to take a cooking class with Patrizia. She is a delight and will help you prepare a delicious meal which you then have the pleasure of eating. Be sure you get a taste of Patrizia's home made Limoncello. Upon your arrival you will find a well stocked fridge including some of Patrizia's home made jam - num so you can have breakfast the next morning. Be sure to take wine or Prosecco up to the "terrace" on the property to watch a beautiful sunset. This terrace is literally on top of the wall. Also be sure to have a nice lunch in the garden. The views are spectacular. Cortona is in a great location to visit many cities by car not only in Tuscany - Pienza, Monalcino, Montepulciano, Siena, San Gimignano, as well as spending a day wandering Cortona, but also visiting Assisi and Orvieto in Umbria. The apartment is spacious and very comfortable and the kitchen well stocked should you wish to cook in the apt. Had we known how wonderful Le Mura Etrusche and the great hosts were we for sure would have stayed longer just to relax and enjoy the Slow, easy lifestyle of Cortona.

Great accomodation in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautifully presented and exactly as represented in the listing and photos. The owners, Lucia and Patrizia, were extremely accomodating and took time to explain everything to us on arrival and immediately made us feel at home. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with everything needed (there were also some of Patrizia's home made goodies as well!) While there is no specific parking at the accomodation, this was not a problem at this time of year and there was free on street parking in close proximity. There are numerous restaurants and shops within walking distance (albeit a steep very walk!) and the location is a great base for exploring many of the nearby areas. We also took up the option to have a traditional home made dinner with our hosts, prepared by Patrizia, which was a great experience; great food and great company. We thouroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay and would highly recommend Cortona and Le Mura Etrusche for a short or long stay!

fantastic holiday place in Cortona

  • 5 of 5

From 13. October to 18. November 2012, I have stayed in Le Mura Etrusche in Cortona for five weeks, which were very pleasant days and gave me good memories: ancient stone house , very chic decoration, modern facilities in living room, kitchen and bathroom, very enthusiastic landlord Patrizia and Lucia and plus beautiful view of Cortona. I think I certainly will return to this place again, and I unreservedly recommend this house.
