Casa Bellavista is a B&B in the true English sense, a home opened to visitors who wish to experience the authentic lifestyle of a Tuscan family.

There are four double rooms, each with its own bathroom. Guests have complete use of the indoor common rooms including the library, the sitting rooms and the dining room.  Outside you will find relaxing areas to enjoy: our grove of olive trees and fruit trees from which you have a commanding view of Cortona, a garden which offers our guests a panoramic view of Montepulciano, Mount Amiata, Sinalunga and Monte San Savino, and a swimming pool for relaxation under the warm sun of Tuscany.

Each morning our guests enjoy a buffet style breakfast.

Dinner reservations in advance are gladly accepted.  Our dinners feature dishes from the best of Tuscan culinary tradition.  Dinners might include such dishes as; ribollita soup, spelt salad, pasta with tomatoes, duck with wild fennel, panna cotta and fruit tarts.

All dinner guests are seated around a single table, a choice that reflects the warm and welcoming style of Casa Bellavista.  Even the largest of families sit around one table.

Cooking classes can be arranged for our guests.  These classes, which feature Tuscan cuisine, can be scheduled for one or more days, for a maximum of four people. The classes take place in our kitchen and the dishes are prepared with a “hands on” approach.

Following our time together in the kitchen, we will enjoy the foods we prepared along with a glass of wine.

On request is possible to organize Extra Virgin Olive Oil tasting: Our tasting will guide you in to the fascinating world of Tuscan extra virgin olive oil, through a path that includes, in addition to the tasting, information about the cultivation of the olive tree, the picking and all the stages of the pressing, highlighting the techniques of tasting and pairing, so as to learn the differences, virtues and defects of olives.

Casa Bellavista is conveniently located for interesting and exciting day trips.  We are always at our guests’ disposal to help organize excursions in the area.
