From the Guestbook
We rented Villa Le Contesse in Cortona for two weeks last September. We invited family and friends to join us. The house is romantically beautiful in a "shabby chic" way. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathroom. We mostly ate outside on the courtyard in front of the house. The pool was delighful. We took day trips to Florence and the surrounding villages and vineyards.
