Ambra and Sara were wonderful hosts! Casa Ambra was highly recommended to us by friends and we now know why. Both Ambra and Sara were very helpful with our itinerary as we were planning our trip. The apartment was spacious and had all of the kitchen items we needed. It was fun to hang our laundry out of a window to dry - like we see in movies. One of the highlights was the wine tasting they scheduled for us at Baldetti Winery about 15 minutes from Cortona. Also, 10 steps away from the Casa Ambra is an organic wine shop that had delicious olive oil and limoncello too...
My family of 5 stayed at Casa Ambra for 5 nights in June. All of us agree that Cortona and Casa Ambra were the best part of our 3 week trip. The apartment was clean, comfortable, and spacious. Sarah and Ambra were available to help us with finding our way around the city, transportation, and suggestions of things to do. The location can't be beat! Great views and gelato right across the street!
We stayed at the Piazza Passerini apartment for a week in April and thoroughly enjoyed Cortona and the accommodation. We were very pleased with the advice and assistance from Ambra and Sara both prior to our trip and during our stay. We had the privacy of our own apartment with the convenience of emailing them or popping across to their beautiful B and B to book taxis and restaurants. The apartment was very comfortable and a good size for a couple. The bedroom was spacious and had lovely afternoon light from windows on two sides...
We spent 3 wonderful days in Cortona and no doubt it had a lot to do with Casa Ambra and our wonderful hosts. Ambra and her daughter, Sarah made us feel very welcomed. They took care of us in every way. They arranged taxis to transport us to and from the train station, made sure we had maps and showed us the places we should visit.
We felt very at home. The apartment was very comfortable and the location. There were four of us but the apartment was big enough for a family of 5. We are definitely coming back !
