We discovered Cortona 10 years ago.
While we visited many beautiful places in many countries, only the Etruscan village on the hill got an unique and authentic place in our lives and memories. So since 2003, we have been coming back and back: wandering around in the streets of Cortona never gets boring and the gelato from Snoopy on the stairs of the Piazza della Repubblica became a "classico" :-)
And the winner of this months Owner’s photo competition goes once again to Jeremy Bilham, Bournemouth UK
You may remember that Jeremy had been awarded once in the past, so this is the second time we acknowledge his photographic talent: very nice picture Jeremy. Congratulations!
The team organized a surprise dinner for our beloved cook, Dina, who celebrated a significant birthday on the 16th. For those of you who have sampled Dina’s delicious casalinga cuisine, will know how much effort, time and love she puts into creating mouthwatering dishes each evening for our owners and guests; the team took this inspiration and prepared a fitting meal for her. Dishes include Spanish style tortilla de patatas, smoked salmon and mackerel pâté, handmade home made tagliatelle with wildboar meat sauce, Risotto al Barolo, roast goose with potatoes, Salame del Re – and a slendid birthday cake to finish: a rolled sponge filled with strawberries and whipped cream served with custard.
