About Casa Valentina Away with the Fairies

There is plenty of space to do your own thing, and if chilling is your thing ... then spend your days in the shade of grand old trees dotted with swings and hammocks that offer secret mountain views. Fling open your arms and yell star praises - the neighbours won`t mind, they are too far away to hear. Lose yourself in the hills, the swings or the quiet rooms. Enjoy quiet days bird watching, cherry picking or throw some pieces in the ceramic workshop. Early risers can catch the sunrise: wake up to the songs of the birds and let nature soothe your spirit.

If you are up for more action Cortona is close enough to feel totaly part of all happenings: so take one of the bikes and do some wild mountain trekking or extreme mountain biking.

Casa Valentina has its own sailing boat at the Lake Trasimeno. They are the only ones who organize sailing trips to the islands. Don’t miss this fun filled adventure. Whatever you choose, there is plenty of good energy here so expect something unique. If you appreciate simplicity and natural living you will love this out of the ordinary space.

The good vibes come from all the natural stone and timber materials that make up the house built in the 13th century. There is a huge fireplace which make wiling away slow evenings a piece of I-want-some-more-cake.

Winfried, a worldwide traveller is passionate about his place and dedicated to ensuring that your stay is comfortable. He only has space for 12 guests so you are always assured of personal attention and his warm hospitality has tempted many travellers to change their plans and stay for just a little longer.

The hostel is selfcatering and remote so bring plenty of supplies, but a few “bare basics” may be purchased from him. Yummy pizzas come from the genuine wood-fired oven. Spice your cooking with free herbs from the garden. It is well-suited to self-drive travellers but cars must be left 200 meters down the driveway. For those who don´t have a car, Casa Valentina has its own bus stop, and hitchhiking with the locals is fun too. If you stay for three nights in one of the rooms, you get a free pickup from the train station and a guided tour through the historic center of Cortona.

Things To Do

Close to Lake Trasimeno lies the ancient Etruscan town of Cortona. It offers a huge variety of cultural events such as:

How To get There

By bus and train: Get off at Camucia-Cortona and take the bus up to Cortona (10min). Take the Minibus at 14.05(not Sundays) or 17.45(not Saturday and Sundays) from the same place up to direction "Teverina" and get off 1km before Casale or 400 Meter after km-sign 15. You have to ask the driver to stop "un kilometro prima di Casale". For description see below.

By car from Rome: Take the motorway from Rome with direction to Florence. Get off at the exit to Siena /Perugia and take the highway to Perugia. Get off at the exit Castiglione dell Lago. Go to Terrontola and to Camucia. Than turn in Camucia to the right to Cortona. Pass Cortona and take the road towards Citta di Castello, Portole. In Portole take the road to the right towards Citta di Castello, San Leo di Bastia, Teverina. Every kilometer there are blue/white signs. When you pass sign km 15 go on for another 400 meters. Than there is a small road up to the left. Leave the car down at the street and walk up the small road. After 100 meters you reach my neighbour´s house. In the yard a road up to the left goes to my house (200m). Don´t forget to bring a torch. We are looking forward to your stay at Casa Valentina.

Terms & Conditions

In order to maintain the peace and tranquility of this residence we request that all guests park their cars at the bottom of the entrance. This also gives you the benefit of walking up a beautiful road to Casa Valentina (about 200 meters) with excellent views over the mountains. (We will bring all your luggage up to your house for you).
