The blend of location (in the heart of Tuscany and in a city also chosen by the Italian designer Valentino for his country villa) and Rocca of Cetona View.

Charming house/apartment in the center of Cetona
A charming comfortable house/apartment in the center of Cetona. This apartment is just off the main square of Cetona and within easy walking distance of restaurants and local stores. There are large grocery stores located in the nearby towns. Parking is in a free public car park about 200 meters from the apartment. The street in front of the house is very narrow, but you can bring a small car to the front to unload your bags. A larger car would have to park about 30 meters away to unload. You will need a car to stay here. Although there is bus service and Chiusi, with a train station, is only about 15 mins. away by car.
The apartment is well furnished, wonderfully decorated and very comfortable. The only issue if you stay here, is that you have to be fully physically mobile. We are, so no problem. But there are 10 to 15 stair steps between all the rooms as the apartment is stacked on three floors. However the rooms are all good size, and the kitchen and living room areas both have fireplaces. When we arrived on a cold winter evening, there was a basket of firewood waiting. Grazie mille! The kitchen is very well equipped and has large windows overlooking a small quiet terrace (belonging to the next house). The heating system is more than adequate in the winter. The photos are accurate.
Cetona is a beautiful small town (village) with a small palace and gardens on a hill in the center that is still held in the private hands. It is easy to walk around and enjoy the small stone streets and views across the valley below. We were very happy and comfortable here. We will stay here again and would recommend it to friends and family. Grazie mille Monica!
Perfect place to experience Tuscany
Perfect unit & place for our month in Tuscany. A classic old village, first rate restaurants, gelato, groceries within steps of front door patio. Two couples fit well another could work. It's as described, well epuiped, tastefully decorated, and comfortable. In spite of no microwave or freezer, oven blowing the fuse, and intermittent water pump noise (which can be turned off), it was wonderful...and the negatives were far outweighed by the positives of the town, the unit, and helpful Marcella. Local bus and train travel is relatively convenient.
Beautiful and comfortable
We've just enjoyed a week at this lovely, beautifully appointed apartment. Every room is filled with light. Although we didn't cook, everything is there that you would need. The living area on the second floor has a comfortable couch with international tv stations. The beds are wonderful and the linens are excellent quality. Yummy candy in dishes, and a welcome bottle of wine are gracious touches making you feel at home. Everything you need is provided--hairdryer, curling iron, soaps, cooking condiments, a washing machine and detergent. Cetona is a charming and picturesque town. Don't hesitate--rent this apartment!!
Mooi sfeervol huis. Cetona is een leuk dorp. Mooie omgeving.
Sfeervolle woning. Alles is ruim aanwezig. We werden zeer gastvrij ontvangen door overbuurvrouw. Leuk dorpje, met heerlijke restaurants maar ook supermarktje en winkeltjes. Veel te zien in de omgeving. Dicht bij snelweg. Wat handig kan zijn. Zo zijn wij oa dag naar Arezzo geweest. Ben je in een uurtje. Prachtige stad met relatief weinig toeristen. Maar van hieruit ook rondrit om Lago di Trasimeno gemaakt, veel leuke stadjes op het platteland aangedaan en mooie routes door bossen en heuvels gereden. Echte aanrader, zowel huis als plek.
L'appartamento è praticamente una porzione indipendente di una palazzina a tre piani. Molto ampia, finemente ristrutturata, completa di tutto il necessario. Bellissima! Posizionata subito dietro la piazza (molto importante in quanto il paese è quasi completamente arroccato ed in salita). Cetona è un bellissimo borgo, piccolo ma da visitare. Ha tutti i negozi necessari per la spesa, molto carino bere un caffè nella piazza illuminata alla sera. Ottimo punto di partenza per visitare molteplici località tutte a distanze ragionevoli. 9
