My husband and I visited Cortona, and stayed at the Villa Baldelli, which has a beautiful view of the town. We, of course, decided to tour all the attractions. Walking to the Basilica of St. Margaret, we didn't realize that Bramasole is just over the...More
If you're a fan of 'the' book, or 'the' movie, or of Frances Mayes in general, then you might want to stroll along this back road to nowhere in order to get a dog's eye view of Bramasole. It's a beautiful villa with very well...More

As we were in Cortona for the day like many who'd never heard of the place until the film we thought it a good idea to visit the House. After a charming and hot walk we arrived to what is undeniably a pretty house with...More
We had to drive to Bramasole. In the past, the visitors used to cut through the fields to visit Bramasole but this is no longer possible. When we pulled in front of the house, I was surprised to see so many terraced gardens, it was...More
