Lovely vacation inside the city walls
The ground floor apartment in this 3 story house is spacious and easily accommodates 8 people. There are two bathrooms each with a shower, bidet and toilet. The wifi is good, and TV signal is alright. There is also washer and dryer.
There is a full kitchen, dining room, family room and lots of drawer/cabinet/ closet space. There is a step down from the family room and the bedroom/bunkbed room, so if one is disabled that could be an issue. On the other hand, the streets of Cortona would be limiting in that regard.
The streets in Cortona are exceptionally narrow, one-way, and steep, some with cobblestone. There is no parking at the house, you have to park outside the city walls, there are two parking areas on that side of the town, one is free the other is not. It is a 5 minute walk, uphill to the house, so with luggage, in the heat that could be a bit hard. But our host, Fernando, drove us in to the house, suitcases and all, and back to the parking lot a week later when we left. He was very helpful with information, and the fruit, juice, milk and wine as a welcome treat was nice.
The apartment is located a few minutes walk from the center of Cortona, with bars, restaurants and stores. Keep in mind all but one street are really steep, with or without steps. The main street is fairly flat, not too long and with a wonderful view of the valley on one end.
Cortona is also very conveniently located centrally between Arezzo, Siena and Perugia.
We would definitely go back.
Incredible home and town
I can’t recommend this place enough. Cortona is intimate, but not too small to discover new things for days. The home is in the perfect location, and the garden is a lovely place to relax in the afternoon. Fernando and his family took amazing care of us - thank you! Bellisima!
thanks so much
Week in Cortona
I would recommend this house to anyone wanting to explore Cortona and the surrounding area. The distance to the car park was reasonable and when returning we always found a space available. The home offered an great courtyard to relax in in the evening.
Cute house - not handicap able
We had a wonderful time at Il Roseto during our stay at Cortona. When looking for a place to stay in Tuscany I searched on VRBO for a few filters: a certain number of bedrooms, certain number of bathrooms, and handicapable capabilities.
Yes - the house is on one floor, but the walk up to the house is steep (so is the rest of cotrona) and there are some large steps to get into the dining room and another bedroom.
Other than that - we had a great time staying at the house! Whatever you do - do not try to drive to the house! We made that mistake. Figure out where the hosts want you to meet up and walk to the house.
Mobility issues aside - this is located in a great area for people who can easily walk to all of the lovely restaurants and shops in the towns square. Any issues we had with the house were quickly fixed.
Perfect Home, Great Location
My husband and I stayed at Il Roseto for 16 nights. Fernando's son, Pierfrancesco met us at the train station and we followed him to Il Roseto. This family home is inside the beautiful hilltown of Cortona. Pierfrancesco was very helpful and very friendly. This home was clean and spacious and had everything we needed and had a bottle of wine and fresh fruit on the table to welcome us. We loved the outdoor garden patio and often enjoyed lunch or dinner outside. The apartment is just a minutes from the piazza. We walked into town several times a day visiting many shops and restaurants. We started most days with cappuccino at Caffe Bar Signorelli. We also enjoyed all the photography exhibits from: "Cortona on the Move" International Photography Festival. We walked up to the Medici Fortress, which had photography exhibits in gallery spaces on each floor. The MAEC Esruscan Academy Museum had a photography exhibit which included Pete Souza's collection of "Obama, An Intimate Portrait." This was our third visit to Tuscany. We had an amazing time and we hope to return.

Best location in Cortona
For those who want to stay in the center of historic Cortona, look no further! This place has it all and is perfect for a family or for two couples to share. Fernando, the owner, was a pleasure to work with and he made sure everything went smoothly. Although we enjoyed many of the nearby restaurants, we also did a lot of cooking and the kitchen had everything we needed. The house itself is all on one level and beautifully decorated, but the real highlight is the private garden with all the rose bushes. We will definitely try to stay here again the next time we are in Cortona (hopefully soon!)
