#2 of 117 in Cortona
Our estate consists of a Farmhouse and a Leopoldina built in the 18th century during the extensive reclamation of the Valdichiana by the Grand Dukes of Tuscan. In times past they belonged to the Order of the Knights of St. Stephen and Malta. The Order used to protect the ancient Grand Ducal Farm of Creti and S. Caterina.The restoration of these buildings required some years of works during which the old "cocciopesto" plaster was restablished, walls with the natural stuccoed pigments were painted and where the structure of the fireplaces wee left unchanged, vaults of the old stable were empty and strengthened, columns which define the countryside were stuccoed.Today we can offer you this unique place to enjoy an intense and unrepeatable experience, making you feel part of an environment where things have remained unchanged and the past seems to be brought back to life everyday in its charm and character.You will be able to dine in a kitchen that used to accommodate over thirty people at a time, sleep in the bedroom converted from the old cattle shed where farmers used to spend sleepless nights watching over their cows delivering their calves, sleep in the "tracantone" bed, sleep in the bedroom located in the Loggia or in the bedroom converted from the old dove-tower, a shelter where doves were bred by farmers. Fireplaces will tell you and remind you of stories that were told gathering around them in the cold winter nights.Walls are decorated with paintings and pictures that will explain you old piece of life and tradition. The best images you will be able to behold will come, as if by magic, from the windows opening onto stunning natural settings such as the dark mountains hanging over Cortona, the sweet and seamless country-side and the noble profile of Cortona.Unique observation, scenes and tastes of true peasant life, a restful and relaxing effect, wealth of details interpreting the sense of place.Looking forward to having you here to discover many more things that words can not describe we would like to make a wish: that knocking on our door you may call beauty by its name.

Have you ever been to Tuscany? Of course everyone did..at least ones. Still, if you do not enter the 100 acre -out of the time- Le Terre dei Cavalieri Resort you haven't experienced the best yet. The owners will lead you through the local country mood and slow-tastes -especially if you are vegetarian or vegan- due to the in-garden products and wine choice. Chef Doriana and all the brilliant staff will complete with her touch. Don't forget to jump in the pool after a visit to Cortona, Italian sun shines warm to the sunset.

We booked here for 5 nights with two other couples. We had a great room - 3 bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, and a large common room with kitchen, living area etc. This is a great place to stay in Tuscany. The hotel arranged a driver / van for us to tour the area for several days and to transport us back and forth for some dinners. This food for breakfast and dinners was excellent. They had a special 45 Euro tasting menu with a local vineyard on the one night and it was a great evening. We booked a cooking class one afternoon at the hotel, and had a absolute riot over about 7 hours, preparing, cooking and drinking our way through the evening in a private kitchen and dining room. Service is spectacular. Wine and food prices are very reasonable as is the accomodation pricing. There is a nice pool and outside areas to sit and drink as you watch the beautiful Tuscan sunsets! Only about 20 minutes to Corona by car. Highly recommend this for any Tuscan travellers. You won’t go wrong at Le Terri dei Cavalieri.

Beautiful views from this farmhouse castle ! The rooms were very spacious and had a shared common space that was remodeled to 5 star quality but never lost the charm of Tuscany. The restaurant on location has a wonderful menu. Renting a bike and getting some cheese, bread and Tuscan wine before you arrive would top off your stay. Their house red wine is very good and reasonably priced.

You wake up and look out the windows and see sunflowers all around you with Cortona there on the hillside. It's perfect. The rooms are exquisite, as is the building. The service is the best possible. Delicious food in both the restaurant and the little Light Lunch bar beside the pool. Not enough wonderful things to say about this beautiful place. Excellent for couples, families (Lots of well behaved children were there with parents on holiday.), weddings, a base for seeing Tuscany. We will be back. It was hot outside and the AC was perfect.

Leaving Rome we picked up a rental car and drove a couple hours north into Tuscany. Google Maps told us where to exit, but even with Maps it was difficult to find our lodging. After passing by two dirt roads a couple of times we decided this must be it, and it was. A spread out venue, we drove between two buildings and decided which one must be the office. We entered and a kid in his early 30s greeted us nonchalantly and said “You’re early.” We soon learned this is Marco, son of the owners and growing into management of the establishment. He checked and our room was ready, it was before noon and this shocked me. Marco gave us a tour then the keys and we made our way to get settled. The resort is comprised of four areas. One is the building where reception is located. Around the corner from reception is a door with a long flight of stairs up. There are two locked doors at the top and we used our key to open the door on the left. I assume the door on the right accesses a similar apartment venue as ours. Our door, the left one, opens to a large room with ample seating and a kitchen. It’s a common room for visitors staying in this wing; there are three apartment doors leading off from the common room. The walls attached to the common space are unfortunately thin and one night my wife intended to read in that area and heard another couple arguing in their room about where to have dinner, while another night as we were headed in we heard someone snoring loudly in their room. This would be an awesome place to visit with two other couples where you could all hang out together in the evening! Our apartment door was directly across from the door at the stairs. Inside our room was a large entry space with a large separated bathroom. Next to this was a very large bedroom with an armoire for hanging clothes. It was a spacious and comfortable room. As a side note, there is a television in the room but we couldn’t find CNN Intl so there were no English language stations. The second area of the resort is diagonally behind reception. A nice pool with a comfortable deck area. There’s also a refreshment building open mid-day which reopens from about 5:00-7:30 where they provide small snacks and beverages you can charge to your room. Next door to the building with reception is another small building that houses, upstairs, a kitchen for cooking classes and a dining room for eating after the cooking class. The last building is directly across from reception and as large as the first building. The bottom floor is the dining area where dinner is offered every night except Tuesday. The same building has complimentary breakfast every morning, and there’s a fairly large patio off the back where we ate breakfast every day. There are stairs up and part way up are the bathrooms for the dining area. Further up are more guest apartments. From the moment we arrived we felt very comfortable, almost at home. All the staff are excellent, extremely friendly. As I mentioned, we had breakfast every morning on the patio behind the dining room. Breakfast is a buffet with pastries, sliced meats and cheeses, cereals and grains, fruit, yogurt, juices, milk; coffee drinks can be ordered and my wife was happy they have decaf coffee. The dining room is kind of small and if they were fully occupied I doubt they could seat all guests so I would recommend a reservation. The food is outstanding, extremely good. Again, the staff is wonderful, and Paolo, the owner, makes his way among tables and serves as the wine expert. Only one night was it really crowded and that night there were groups dining who were not staying on site. The restaurant is closed Tuesdays, however they offer two cooking classes per week and one is on Tuesday! I like to cook and didn’t care to drive the country roads at night so we signed up! The cost is 80 euro per person. Class started at 4:00 or 4:30 and I think we broke up at 10:00 or 10:30, it was a very full evening.The class was led by the owners’ daughter in law assisted by and translated by one of the people who work there. The attendees were us and two other couples and we all became fast friends for the rest of our trips. The food we made was amazing as too. Four different bruschetta toppings, pici (pee-chee), which is an egg free pasta, ragu for the pasta, braised pork, and panna cotta. We made one trip to the large garden on site to collect fresh tomatoes and herbs for cooking and this added to the experience. The resort has its own branded wine and the wine flowed freely all evening. Most evenings we sat by the pool after the day’s events and prior to the dining room opening at 7:30. Many guests were there and we had a lot of fabulous conversations. My favorite early evening though had to be when Marco, fully unfiltered, served as bartender. What a blast! The people and amenities are hard to beat, and they are located to allow short commutes to all the sights to see. Montalcino, Cortona, Montepulciano, Sienna, Orvieto, all just a quick drive away. Breakfast is very good and the restaurant outstanding. If you are planning a trip to Tuscany I strongly urge you to consider lodging at Terre dei Cavalieri.
