Il Rattoppo, Cortona - Arezzo

1 bedroom 1 bathroom 2 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Deep in the Tuscan countryside, far from the madding crowds of Pisa and Florence, stands this hilltop villa, a great choice for couples seeking to get away from it all. Perfectly sized for just the two of you, Il Rattoppo offers seclusion when you desire it but also plenty of interest locally when you feel it’s high time to explore. Olive oil and wine tastings are among the local temptations you won’t be able to resist; bring back any that catch your eye and put them to use creating a dinner to enjoy by candlelight on the terrace or in the snug lounge.

As you would expect from its location on the brow of a hill, Il Rattoppo has superb views of the Valdichiana valley, with Tuscany falling away into the middle distance. Entered through a beautiful brick archway, the property is surrounded by a pretty garden. Step inside and you’ll instantly feel at home. With its period features, such as wood-beamed ceilings, this villa oozes character, and the working fireplace will prove irresistible to cuddle up by on cooler evenings.

Our Thoughts
Il Rattoppo is a truly charming and snug property ideal for couples perhaps celebrating a special occasion or anniversary. Thanks to its working fireplace, Il Rattoppo is a good choice year-round, allowing you to enjoy the seasons at their height, whether it be the flowers and scents of spring or the golden cloak that sweeps across the Tuscan landscape in autumn. Whatever the time of year, this property is a particularly good choice for the fabulous changeless, centuries-old view of a landscape dotted with villages dating to – and little changed since – the Middle Ages.

Notes
One bedroom. One bathroom. The cottage is next to the main house, where the owners live. You are assured of a warm welcome but beyond that they will leave you to enjoy your stay in private. The villa has a washing machine.
There are two mountain bikes on site that guests may use for free.

Pool
The pool is long enough to allow for length swimming and is situated in a sunny part of the garden, though a handy pergola provides more than enough shade. The pool is entered by a small flight of steps. The pool is shared with the owners of Rattoppo but they rarely use it and will respect your privacy.
Pool size: 6m x 12m, 1m-2.2m deep. Open from May through September, weather permitting.

This was my 2nd visit to Il Rattoppo my first being in 2009. Il Rattoppo is a lovely villa, well equipped and really comfortable. The gardens are lovely to explore and the pool is really nice. The villa owner, Luciano Barra, is an amazing host and he makes you feel so welcome upon arrival. There are so many places to visit around the area, Cortona, Montepulciano, Pienza, Lake Trasimeno are all within easy reach. Siena is not too far and you can also get a train, if you feel the need, to travel to Florence. We will definitely go back.
Local attractions Restaurants: La DOGANA - Valiano di Montepulciano (Great local food & their own wine with amazing views over the valley) Trattoria Etrusca - Cortona (Really good local Tuscan food & wine - the menu is a daily choice. Isola Maggiore - Albergo Ristorante da Sauro (Great fish from the lake) Assisi - Antichi Sapori (Good local food) Montepulciano - Rosso Rubino (Great little restaurant for local food and wine) Places to visit: The Etruscan Tombs Academy in Cortona, and Cortona itself. Montepulciano - lovely place to walk around. Lake Trasimeno (you can do a great scenic drive around the lake). Ferry fromTrasimeno to Isola Maggiore - not much to see on the island but the ferry ride is nice and scenic. Assisi - it was busy. Get there early. Chianace - The local market on Thursday 8-12. Great selection of cheeses. Its what a market should be, no tat!
