San Pietro a Dame, 78, 52044 Cortona (Arezzo)
The scenic location and the peaceful green Cortona mountains make this sunny, light and airy accommodation some of Cortona’s finest, just 18 km from the city itself.
At 650 m altitude, surrounded by meadows and woodland, the agriturismo enjoys beautiful views of the valley of the Minimella River and the Tuscan and Umbrian Apennines.
The agriturismo breeds Koi Carp. These beautiful fish, with their intense colours, are an extremely popular relaxing pastime.
As well as a beautiful swimming pool, the agriturismo also offers two guest apartments, La Rosa on the first floor and La Mimosa on the ground floor, both comprising 2 bedrooms for 4 people with the option to add two children’s beds, a fully equipped kitchen, a TV, a bathroom with shower, a washing machine, barbecue, iron and ironing board, independent paved entrance, children’s play area and swimming pool access. The La Rosa apartment also features a beautiful open fireplace.
Guests can tour the farm and sample the produce from the vegetable garden totally free of charge. There is also a restaurant around 1 km away, ideal for those who don't feel like cooking.
The estate is ideal for excursions through woodland, cultivated fields and meadows, sampling the produce of the undergrowth (mushrooms, chestnuts, wild strawberries and blackberries) and the vegetable garden (melons, watermelons, tomatoes, cucumbers ...).
The nearest city is Cortona: nestled in the hills, the city enjoys scenic views of the Valdichiana plain which spreads beneath it, of Lake Trasimeno, the surrounding hills and the mountains. Its striking Etruscan walls date back to the end of the 5th century B.C, spanning around 3 km. The city offers much to see and do, and the Etruscan Academy and City of Cortona Museum, the famous “Etruscan Chandelier” dating back to the 5th century B.C. and the “Tabula Cortonensis” dating back to the 3rd century B.C. are all worth a visit.
The agriturismo stands at the intersection of the roads that link Tuscany with Umbria, and just an hour by car takes you to Arezzo, Perugia, Florence and Siena.
Inform the agriturismo of any animals at the time of booking.

Located in a strategic point very close to Cortona. Wonderful view, excellent structure and the owners genuine and very welcoming people !!!!! Homemade breakfast extraordinary. The girls also showed the fantastic mare and the little lamb now become a dog ..... and this is not seen every day and you can not even learn from books. Nature must be breathed to immerse yourself then! Short but intense experience ...

Thank you for the warm welcome from, our dear hosts, Marcia and Constantino!
We've spent an amazing week at Coccinella Apartment, where we could feel like home.
The apartment was well prepared for every situation, we had enough space to rest and also around the house, where we could enjoy the clean and amazing pool by ourselves!
The road up to the house is a bit tortuous, but it's worth the time going slowly up because once you get to see the view, you will feel like you just arrived to paradise.
We can't be thankful enough to Marcia who prepared breakfast for the whole family and made us want to stay whole day long in their warm and welcoming house, which only after a week became our HOME.
Once again thank you so much for the oppurtunity!
We are more than happy to suggest this place to everyone who would like to be a guest at an original italian family whom I can bravely say ones of the nicest people we've ever met!
