Casa Bellavista

Cortona, Arezzo
Bed & Breakfast

Big skies and 360 degree views over the stunning Tuscan countryside at this elegant old farmhouse with warm owners and delicious dinners


3 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


This is Italian family B&B at its finest – Simonetta (a creative cook – you can have lessons) and Guido (an olive oil sommelier) throw open the doors of their fine old redbrick farmhouse with gusto. You’ll find an assured, uncluttered country elegance to the rooms, while pretty, airy bedrooms have family antiques, embroidered sheets and interesting textiles; two have their own balcony with views onto the garden. If you like food then the fun starts at breakfast: two or three of Simonetta’s delicious homemade cakes, home-baked bread, fresh ricotta, local hams, salami and cheeses – good coffee too – all served on beautiful white china in the dining room or under the arched loggia surrounded by jasmine and roses. Four-course dinners are based around Tuscan recipes using the freshest ingredients – ravioli, duck with orange, mouthwatering cakes. Rent a vespa or a pedal bike (there’s a 65km route to test them on), take a wine tour of the area or simply stroll the fecund garden with its hammocks slung between pine trees – perfect for dozing off to the sound of skylarks and corn buntings.

Simonetta and Guido have a lovely house in beautiful countryside. They made us very welcome. The room was very well appointed. Our dinner was good. We thoroughly recommend the Casa Bellavista.
