One suggested bike route - lots of uphill this route takes you up and over the hills towards Umbertide, through the Niccone valley and up the other side - must be in good bike shape for this - a challenging ride.
What a lovely setting just below Cortona. This was a great house for our large family group; Furnishings simple but the were rooms spacious; we loved having our evening glass of wine by the pool! We could also take our bikes easily from here to reach the main road. Thanks for organizing this. Susan P
