This was our first trip to Tuscany, so we cannot compare with other offers in the area, but we are well-traveled, so know what to expect in general. And boy, Villa di Nello was nearly flawless. I honestly cannot really fault it. Yes, the driveway is steep (yet I had no problem with my large car (4m80)). No, the place... More

We recently stayed in this lovely villa for a week. I wish it could have been longer but we had more of Italy to see.

Our family stayed at Villa Nello for one week at the beginning of August and it exceeded expectations. The Villa itself is beautifully furnished with comfortable seating areas , crisp linen on the beds and air conditioning in the bedrooms, bliss!.

We rented Villa Orlando for one-week and have only positive reviews of the location, the villa, and the property owner. The villa is situated on the hillside of Cortona and the view is right out of the movies. The condition of the villa was perfect and the decor just what you would want and expect in Tuscany.

We booked all three of the villas that make up Villa Ugo at the recommendation of a friend who had previously stayed to house friends and family for a wedding in Cortona.

While our overall experience was OK with Villa Nello, there were several issues that potential renters should be made aware of. First, we specifically asked about wireless internet access from the Villa, and were told that it was available. Actually, it wasn't.

As soon as you arrive at Villa Ugo, serendipity and peace surround you, a gentle breeze caress your face, all your senses are all of a sudden awake, the city life seems distant, and the smells of Cortona countryside are all around you. The place is unbelievable, it’s like being in a movie of Bertolucci. There is a marvelous 180... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Near the center of the aptly-named Golden Valley of the Chiana River (the Valdichiana), some 400 meters above sea level but just a few kilometers from the town Cortona, Villa Ugo encompasses every quality of Tuscan charm, simplicity and rural beauty. Since 1890, my family, the Sabatini’s have lived in the 16th century Villa Ugo, surrounded by over 11 hectares of olive groves and vineyards. The groves were once divided into three fields, where secondary houses were inhabited by tenant farmers. These three Villas also date, in part, to the 16th century, and I have carefully and beautifully restored them while maintaining the style, history and culture of the area and mindfully adding all the modern amenities and comforts. During your visit, you'll enjoy almost intoxicating peace, glorious vistas, and direct contact with nature in these three independent villas, Casa Liliana, Casa di Nello and Casa di OrlandoMy family provides a personal welcome to you, and discreetly ensures that you will be well looked-after during your stay, catering to your needs, and assisting with most any requirement to guarantee your visit is a memorable one.Come join us here at Villa Ugo, with all of Eastern Tuscany, western Umbria and central Italy nearby to welcome your relaxation and exploration!Ugo Sabatini ... more   less

“Villa di Nello (also sometimes known as Casa Giada, apparently) is very private, so ideal for those who seek peace and quiet. Should you have issues driving up a steep (gravel) hill road, then perhaps you'll prefer Villa Orlando, which is more accessible (yet a little less private perhaps).”
