Beautiful villa with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa with amazing views from the garden & pool. My husband, 2 boys & I had a fabulous stay & can't wait to come back to visit again. The beds are extremely comfy so much so we all found it difficult waking up, which is extremely unusual for me as I normally suffer from insomnia! It was just the quiet, tranquil family holiday we all needed. It is quite isolated so a car is definitely an essential although there is a restaurant within walking distance, which served delicious food. It does have an iron & ironing board, which is not mentioned on the list of facilities.

We had the most exquisite ice cream I've ever had in Cortona, which was very cheaply priced surprisingly! We went end of July beginning of August 2017 & the weather was between 35-40 degrees, which is hotter than we're used too but was manageable because it was a dry heat (low humidity, which compared with Versace that had a 93% humidity was sticky & full of mosquitoes!!!). There were no bugs or bites from any insects here but we had to save loads of bugs from the pool daily as they kept drowning whilst getting a drink!!!

The only things that could've made our stay a little better would have been a microwave in the kitchen/dining room. A working DVD player (which we couldn't get to work at all as it wouldn't keep a DVD in it?). Outside the villa a light or lantern/candle under the white gazebo so we could stay outside longer in the evenings as the mini lampposts gave enough light to see where you're going but not enough to play games/cards or have a few drinks. Other than these minor points it is a beautiful villa, which we intend to return to many times. The housekeeper kindly brought us some fresh eggs & home grown tomatoes, cucumber & herbs, which tasted delicious.

I would most definitely be recommending this villa to everyone but not too many so I still get to come back too ;-)

Beautiful, amazing place with a Coop for shopping only 15-20 minute drive away to get food & essentials for your stay.

Sehr gepflegtes Anwesen, Bar mit Hotel unweit mit der Möglichkeit Lebensmittel einzukaufen. Sehr freundliche Vermieter. Wir haben den Aufenthalt in dieser Höhenlage mit einer traumhaften Blick auf den Lago Trasimeno sehr genossen.

Das Ferienhaus hat eine tolle Lage. Sehr ruhig und doch gut gelegen für Ausflüge.

Der Garten, der Pool und das Haus sind sehr gepflegt. In der Küche ist alles vorhanden. Zur Begrüßung gab es sogar kühle Getränke und Kuchen.

Anna hat uns später noch Eier und Tomaten aus ihrem Garten gebracht. Köstlich! Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

The hills surrounding Cortona are a heaven of peace and tranquillity. And it is on this hills, by the tiny hamlet of Portole, that Villa Portole Due is located. Providing sensational views over the rolling hills and the Trasimeno Lake (with swimming opportunities), the villa is also within easy reach of the historical center of Cortona with its alleys, excellent restaurants and bars. The relaxing location, together with the close proximity to amazing places of interest, turn Villa Portole Due into the perfect base to live a truly Tuscany holiday.
