A luxury villa with private pool, Villa San Martino is set on a hill, high above the beautiful Niccone Valley on a quiet road, just 3 minutes from local village shops, restaurants and cafes.

Reviewed 23 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a marvelous week in this beautiful villa (all 4 couples of us just loved it). It is perfect for familys, with a children friendly pool and robust interior :)

The house is rustic and cosy, with great common areas and nice bedrooms, especially the 'master' bedroom which is magnificent and has the size of a livingroom.

We barely wanted to go on our planned excursions as we enjoyed hanging out in the flowery garden so much - at the great pool (diving depth + children depth) and at the various terraces with view over the valley. Much appreciated, at least in July, was also the possibilty to always find a place in the shade (also part of pool during part of day).

The house manager was friendly and very customer focused. Great guest material, including personal tips about regional and local go-to places and restaurants.

Needless to say the surroundings are beautiful, with lot's of top sigthseeing in the area.

Definitely worth a...

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Comments from recent visitors: We recently had the opportunity to stay at Villa San Martino overlooking the lush Umbrian landscape. The setting and villa far exceeded our expectations. The beautifully restored home honored the history and materials of its area, simple and elegant design. It seems every window had a unique and lovely vista as light filtered through the wood beamed ceilings and rooms. The gardens, pool and multiple outdoor dining areas created a magical setting that had such good energy we could barely pull ourselves away to visit the all of the tempting tourist destinations in the area. It truly was a home away from home. I have an art gallery and our dear friends whom we traveled with - a top designer (from San Francisco) - were completely enamored with this place. Needless to say, we are very particular about our surroundings so the fact we were so happy with Villa San Martino says a great deal. Thank you for all of the love you have put into this wonderf... more

About the neighbourhood
Villa San Martino is located in the beautiful Niccone Valley on Tuscan/ Umbrian border. Local shops can be found in Mercatale di Cortona and Lisciano Niccone. These are ideal locations for stocking up on supplies or relaxing in a bar or trattoria. Mercatale di Cortona has three bars, two supermarkets and is home to Trattoria Mimmi, famous for its fresh homemade pasta and really worth more than one visit. The area is rich in olives and vineyards and fruit and vegetables are grown in the area. And we are only 15 minutes from the enchanting, and world-renwned Cortona with cafes and restaurants and views to amaze.
