Perfect Home Away From Home

Review submitted: October 11, 2013   Date of arrival: September 21, 2013

Casa Celeste has been our home away from home for 3 weeks. It is spacious, comfortable, well decorated, and has made our time in Cortona the perfect holiday. For those who wish to cook, the kitchen is well equipped. There is a washing machine for your laundry needs, and a television. The location is close to an entrance to the wall that surrounds the city and parking if you rent a car. Cortona is relatively small, but the Little Castle is close to the main piazza, Della Repubblica, stores, and restaurants.
If two couples are traveling together the layout would provide privacy as the bedrooms are on separate floors and each have a full bathroom. There are also two sitting areas.
The landlords could not be more welcoming and helpful. They provided us with information about the town and surrounding area, where to eat, shop, took us to a local vineyard for wine, olive oil and vinegar, and brought fresh linens as we needed them.
Casa Celeste in a 5 star accommodation!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

At Home in Cortona

Review submitted: July 1, 2013   Date of arrival: June 2, 2013

Everything about this place exceeded our expectations. The property, the interior, and the furnishing are beautiful, comfortable, and immaculately maintained. I love to cook, and the kitchen was perfect for testing my skills on more than a few Tuscan dishes. But if you don't want to cook while on vacation, you'll find so many wonderful restaurants within a short walk from the castle's front door. Five of us stayed for 12 days and never felt crowded. The two-and-a-half bathrooms have every modern convenience.
Best of all were our gracious hosts...the owners, Fernanda and Carlo. Their recommendations for dining and local sightseeing were perfect.
While I travel to Italy almost every year, and have stayed in some luxury hotels, Cortona and this property made this my best trip ever; AND the rates are an incredible value.

A dream come true!

Review submitted: December 8, 2012   Date of arrival: November 29, 2012

This is a perfect little place for so many reasons. Upon arrival we thought this place is even nicer than in the pictures! We fell in love with "casa celeste"(that is its name) and were sad this would be home for only a week.
Within walking distance one can find all one needs or wants : Baker for breads and pastries, butcher for fresh ham. Fresh pasta shop with homemade sauces and antipasti: all at very reasonable prices. Of course wine shops, restaurants, shopping and even a Museum. This was important to us since we did not want to rent a car.

We made a day trip to Montepulciano! Yes it can be done: bus to Camucia at 8:40 or 9:10(might say Arezzo but ask) Train to Chiusi at 9:33 or 10:33 Then bus to Montepulciano. Make sure you start heading home around 3h30 as the bus ride back will take around an hour. Buy your bus tickets in advance at a Tabachi. On the return train ride make sure you are on the right train! Two trains come at the same time but one does not stop in Camucia. you need the regionale.
We were a bit worried about extra heating costs, but we found it very fair and reasonable.
The house comes prepared for all your needs. Not a thing is missing. Free internet came in handy in the middle of the night when we suffered from jet lag. The two beddrooms are set in such a way that privacy is assured if you are considering travelling with another couple. There is also an extra bathroom (toilet and sink)downstairs for added comfort.
Last but not least, our gracious hosts were very kind and helpful.
This place is a winner!
