  • This is a place of peace, of harmony. Have been there several times and when you arrive and the door entrances, you only hear the birdsong, the rush of water into the River below the bridge at the entrance and then only silence ... then if you sit inside the church you truly feel at peace ... is a magical place to stay!

  • Anyone who claims to know Cortona must Le Celle seen and visited. The location is surprising. The atmosphere is subdued and the rest completely. It is only at the hands of our Italian host that we have visited Le Celle. For me personally is the memory of Benedict here much more tangible than is Assise. The simplicity, the nature and the silence here contribute much.

  • It is a beautiful and tranquil haven. Whether it is exciting ... no but it is beautiful and relaxing and interesting. Beautiful little church and the monastic cell Franz of Azzi took

  • A charming, beautiful and peaceful place! Best to come with a car or its a long but still possible walk.
  • One of the most memorable and peaceful experiences I ever had was spending a solitaire moment at "Le Celle"
  • The pictures are beautiful, yet somehow don't do Le Celle justice. I was a UGA student in Cortona the Summer of 1996. I used to pack a lunch and go to Le Celle to study it was so peaceful and quiet. I guess it is hard to take a picture of serenity and peace.
  • I made of proposal to marry at the place:-)) she said YES
  • What a hidden gem
