  • I think that there are few places so charming and full of facino; you almost want to become a monk in order to live in a place like this. Pity that there is a chance to meet some little tern with whom to exchange some thoughts.

  • Sensational silence that reigns in this corner just adjacent to Cortona. All well maintained and cared for. A nice feel nowadays.

  • A memorable and peaceful experience !! Definitely recommend a visit, with all the nature surrounding the area, it's easy to be in the moment . .. 
  • 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
  • Lovely and unexpected place indeed. Visited towards the end of a rainy and foggy, which helped make the place even more mysterious and to award him a very special atmosphere. Definitely worth visiting during the day, especially to complete some paths that are there.
