Beautiful villa with private pool situated on a large park at the foot of the hills of Cortona, a lovely town dating back to the Etruscan times. The villa dates back to the 16th century and offers comfortable interiors furnished with some antique pieces. The outside areas are very large and provide a nice park with a spacious solarium area (near the pool) and some charming corners shaded by century-old tress.
The access to the villa is via an unpaved but well-maintained road.

Lack of air conditioning made sleeping in some bedrooms unbearable. Very hot weather during our stay - kitchen no AC.
Dishwasher very unreliable. There are no signs for Villa Elisa - even the people next door had no idea where it was. There should be far more local information available as the owner speaks no English. Bus timetables , taxi firms, bike hire, etc. We had a wonderful time at Villa Elisa but the basic requirements for a 5 star rating are not being met.
Beautiful villa in stunning rural setting walkable to amenities and a short drive / bus from Cortona. Gorgeous pool area. Cooking facilities very basic with ancient appliances. Bathrooms dated but clean. Fantastic characterful property in lovely setting but facilities dated.
Amazing place and view! Great location and very peaceful
The view on Cortona from the pool will leave you breathless! Lots a wildlife (deers) and birds and such a peaceful athmosphere, it's really a piece of paradise in Tuscany. Elisa is a fantastic and warm person, caring, helping, always available with good tips. We will definitely come back!
Es war wunderbar. Ein wahrhaft märchenhafter Platz. So, wie man sich einen Urlaub in der Toskana auf dem Lande vorstellt. Vielen Dank Elisa.
We had a wonderful Tuscan family holiday at villa elisa. we felt like we were really immeted in tuscan life with 3 generations of our family dining on long tables in the beautiful gardens each evening. The view from the pool of historic Cortona is magnificent. The local food and wine is delicious and the Italians warm and welcoming.
wonderful experience for the whole family. The grounds are beautiful, with plenty of room, and the atmosphere is second to none. Very well kept throughout. The landlady is a very pleasant person and the whole booking and checking out very well organized. I highly recommend it
we found Villa Elisa very accomendating for our family of 9, It was a great location and easy access to the train in Camucia and to Cortona.There were a few small issues, ie american coffee pot was not so good,a few times the hot water would come and go,and the past thru bedroom was difficult.but the gardens, pool and outdoor eating was awesome!!!,we loved drinking our morning coffee outside. one night we fixed an italian style dinner and ate on the big outdoor table. The owner did not speak any english so it was a bit of a challenge when we checked in,however in looking back thats what made our vacation so wonderful. new and different surroundings, kind people, great food and wine. We would definitely recommend this property to others. Cindy L, Atanta, Georgia
