Il Rattoppo, Cortona - Arezzo

1 bedroom 1 bathroom 2 people 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.

Sofa, two armchairs, fireplace, fully equipped kitchenette.

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.

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.
The approach road is all paved.
There are two mountain bikes on site that guests may use for free.

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.

Für uns war es ein traumhafter Urlaub. Die Anlage, der Eigentümer Luciano, die beiden Engel des Hauses Felice und Nadja, alle waren freundlich, hilfsbereit und haben uns alle Wünsche von den Augen abgelesen. Das Haus ist außerordentlich gut ausgestattet, die meisten Sachen, die man normalerweise in ein gemietetes Haus mitnimmt, sind dort vorhanden (Salz, Pfeffer, Geschirrtücher, Wettex, Toilettepapier, Pooltücher, Bademäntel), einfach perfekt.
Local attractions Fischrestaurant La Campanella in Bettolle ist leider der einzige Name, den wir uns gemerkt haben. Die Restaurant-Tips haben wir von Lugiano bekommen, bzw. waren wir gemeinsam dort. Wir waren in Arrezzo, Cortona, Siena, Assisi, Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino, San Gimignano. Es war überall sehr schön, am besten hat uns Siena und Cortona gefallen.
