My husband and I loved staying here in September 2019 on our first trip to Cortona, and we were so happy to return . Sara was absolutely lovely , welcoming and kind, just as we remembered her to be. We reserved the Prestige Wellness Suite this time, and we were so glad that we did ! It was a grand and beautifully decorated room . We especially liked the very comfortable chairs at the foot of the bed ( the website has great photos ! ) La Corte di Ambra is absolutely gorgeous with an air of elegance ,yet it is very warm and inviting. Sara is definitely the one who makes it so. Sara is gracious and thoughtful, and she took the best care of us. The perfect caffe macchiato and cappuccino Sara made ,along with the most delicious freshly baked cornettos , were our favorites at breakfast. It was always a very relaxing and quiet start to each day. Wonderful restaurants and shops are within a short walking distance. There are plenty of sites to see, or you can just sit in the piazza and watch the world go by. Cortona is a special town ,and we felt very welcome. Sara's brother Michele also was helpful the days he was at the reception desk. It was special to see Signora Ambra again and her husband Signor Alfiero. He was so very kind to take us to the train station the day we were leaving, so we did not have to wait for a taxi. He took the time to also stay with us when my husband was having some difficulty getting the tickets from the machine. Signor Alfiero made sure we knew which platform the train would be arriving at that morning. The entire family makes La Corte di Ambra the only place we would consider staying at in Cortona. We are looking forward to our next trip to Italy , and can not wait to be guests at La Corte di Ambra again. Grazie mille , Peggy & George

This B&B is in the actual multi-generational family home of the proprietor. The structure has gone through a full renovation and has many thoughtful and careful touches. The rooms are decorated in antiques but have a modern feel to them. Sara the proprietor is gracious, friendly and accommodating. When my GPS sent me to a street that you cannot drive on, she answered my phone call, texted me a map and guides me tp the B&B. She then came with me to park the car! Breakfast is a genuine treat. On top of freshly baked croissants, there are several fresh bakery items and Sara makes some the most perfect scrambled eggs I have ever tasted. This place is a gem and deserves more attention.

We were fortunate to stay in Cortona for 3 wonderul days at this very lovely & welcoming B & B. I reserved through them easily and had prompt email responses to all my questions. Signora Sara and Signora Ambra were very thoughtful and kind. They made reservations for dinner , called taxis and were very helpful .Our room was comfortable and quiet, and we slept well after our busy days. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of choices and eggs made if requested plus whatever coffee we preferred. We felt very welcome in the town also. Excellent restaurants were close by and with prices much lower than Siena and Firenze ! The wait staff at all the restaurants were very attentive and pleasant . Plenty of shops and restaurants lined the streets with people looking very relaxed at the tables outdoors . We were able to walk everywhere & enjoyed the steep climb up to the Duomo and fort. The views were spectacular as was our arrival to the town. Seeing Cortona off in the distance is an incredible site, and I am so glad we used a car service to make the trip from Siena. If you arrive by train, make sure you get off at the correct station . You will need a taxi to take you up and up and up. Unbelievable ! We took the train to Orvieto our last day. The train station had the cleanest restroom room , and the staff did not mind us waiting there for about an hour with us only ordering coffee .Cortona is definitely a perfect place to visit , and we woud love to return and stay at this beautiful B & B.

Great location and wonderful room with accurate details. Exceptional breakfast rich in local food and fresh fruit. Sara is a very Kind host who gives very useful advice. Exceptional body cream in the room that you can also buy (I did it!). The romantic atmosphere of the b&b starts from the hall enlightened by big candles

Stayed for only one night but absolutely loved this place. In the heart of beautiful Cortona the rooms oozed with charm. The whole building is in pristine condition and maintained to perfection. Spotlessly cleaned and decorated by the owner. The host Sara was very friendly and helpful and informative. Lovely breakfast included with fresh warm croissants .Wifi good. Cannot fault. 10/10
