Take a refreshing dip, or taste a glass of wine comfortably sitting on the provided sunbeds: the real atmosphere of Tuscany and the breeze will caresse you. The swimming pool has been cleverly designed to feature also a seating space and jacuzzi jets: you will have your own hydromassage bath under the Tuscan sun!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed in Villa Primula with a group of 10 people, including a little baby and simply loved everything about our stay. We had a slight miscommunication regarding check in and getting the keys, but the problem was solved within minutes by the owner after we texted him. The villa was beautiful - although a little cold the night we arrived - and we really enjoyed the privacy it offered, even though it is located so close to everything. Ten minute walk to the train station and to the supermarket, two minutes from the nearest restaurant, you could by tickets two the bus to Cortona from around the corner and get to the bus in five minutes... We had considered renting a car during our stay, but quickly realized it really wasn't necessary. The pool are was very nice and a great place to relax. All in all the owner made us feel very welcome and well taken care off and it was an extremely wonderful week in Camucia and Cortona and we will definitely be back someday!

Review for stay from 17 September 2016 to 17 September 2016

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 people rented Villa Primula for a small family reunion, our priorities were: a private pool, AC in the bedrooms and walking distance to the town. This villa met all our request. The hosts were attentive and helpful. Fully equipped kitchen if you want to do your own cooking, beautiful garden and great pool. The property is just as described. We highly recommend it.

Review for stay from 30 September 2017 to 30 September 2017

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay at Villa Primula. The villa could easily fit our group of 8 friends (4 couples). We had great fun relaxing and hanging out by the pool to finish the day after our busy tuscan cultural trips. Our host was very uncomplicated and friendly. The beautiful medieval town of Cortona is only a 5 minute drive away and offers amazing sunsets and great food.

Review for stay from 08 July 2017 to 22 July 2017

  • 4 of 5

Très agréable villa dans un lieu sublime. Le village de Cortone est magnifique de même que les villes de Sienne, Perouse et Arezzo, rapidement accessibles. Il faut toutefois prévoir de se protéger des moustiques, très nombreux et savoir que la facture d'électricité est un peu salée (notamment à cause de la climatisation présente dans l'ensemble de la maison)

De très bons souvenirs au final

Très belle destination

Large Beautiful Old Home

  • 5 of 5

The location of the home was very convenient to restaurants and shopping, but far enough to be very quiet. It is a large home with plenty of room for several families. It was very clean and well stocked. The decor is charming and reflects the period of time when the home was built. Check in was extremely easy. We didn't get a chance to use the pool because we were there in April, so it was too cold. The only drawback was the electricity. We were surprised by the amount he charges for electricity. We were there for 4 nights, about 1 hour at night and 1 hour in the morning. The charge for the electricity was 29eur. But, I would definitely recommend this home.

Owner's Response: Hello Annette, good morning from Tuscany! Many thanks for your lovely review. We are delighted to see that your stay was enjoyable: at Posarelli Villas we all work hard to ensure unforgettable holidays at the best rates on the market. Concerning electric usage, probably the surplus was due to an use of electrical heaters, but of course we will check with the owners. We are looking forward to welcoming you soon again in one of our properties! Best regards Daniele - Posarelli Villas
