il sole del sodo
Il Sole del Sodo is a small and cosy Bed & Breakfast with 6 charming rooms where you will be able to rest, sleep-in and relax surrounded by stunning Tuscan countryside.
Situated outside the ancient Etruscan walls of Cortona – only 1 ½ miles from the town centre – Il Sole del Sodo is named after the neighbourhood in which it is located and by the sunshine that illuminates the property during the day.
An ideal holiday home, with swimming-pool and lush courtyard, Il Sole del Sodo is also an excellent base for daytrips to valleys and charming towns in close proximity to Cortona – from Valdichiana to Val D’Orcia, from Montalcino to Pienza, from Spas to Churches frescoed by Piero della Francesca, and to nearby Umbria with its enchanting landscapes.
And after a busy day you will be able to sit back and look at the sunset sipping on a glass of wine accompanied by a tasty selection of local products.
Il Sole del Sodo is the fulfilment of a dream for Claudia and her three sisters that successfully converted the old farmhouse in a comfortable Bed & Breakfast, combining a style inspired by many family trips to the pleasure of offering guests a home in Tuscany.
Il Sole del Sodo is the ideal home for people wishing to spend their holidays both in relaxing surroundings and with a feel for appealing life-style.
The old 19th century farmhouse has been converted into a B&B with 6 rooms, each one different from the other and all with en-suite bathroom.
The rooms are finely furnished with a combination of classic-country and vintage-modern pieces.
The particular atmosphere that Claudia managed to create at Il Sole del Sodo can be found in every corner of the house, as well as in the original lamps designed and created by her during the renovation of the farmhouse.
Breakfast is served in the beautiful Sala della Pastaia or in your bedroom.
Claudia in an attempt to make reception truly extraordinary decided to serve breakfast from 8:30am to 11:00am – not your common breakfast times! In putting together breakfast menus Claudia took inspiration from the best B&B tradition from around the world. You will be able to enjoy the different Tastes accompanied by the finest selection of coffees, cappuccinos, teas and fruit juices:
- Classic Tastes: menu consisting of a selection of breads, jams, yogurts, cornflakes and fruit
- Sweet Tastes: a large selection of daily-baked cakes, cookies and biscuits. You won’t forget the apple pie!
- Brunch Tastes: local eggs, hams and cheeses accompanied by a selection of freshly baked bread and focaccias. Delicious!
