What attracted us to this hotel was the pool... Cortona in July is hot. Also the have air conditioning (mediocre) when many hotels in the area do not. We took a chance and booked - when we received notice that we would have to call 24 hours in advance to notify the hotel or our arrival time because there was no one at the front desk full time, we wondered if we had made a mistake. We did not. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly- outstanding. The hotel has an elevator for those who don’t like to drag bags up the stairs. Free parking. Free wifi. The room are large although sparsely furnished - ours had a cabinet kitchenette which was very impressive. Clean and contemporary bathrooms. The pool is huge but chilly and used by lots of locals too as it seems to be part of the tennis club that is also on the property. So you could take a tennis lesson if you have the time. There is an outstanding restaurant on the property. Their staff is friendly and very accommodating. The menu offers a very wide variety of selections for nearly any diet need. The atmosphere is very relaxed and comfortable. The food is excellent. There were many locals at the restaurant as well. This place is a little gem just before you drive up the hill to Cortona village. We would stay here again when in the area or for sure stop for dinner.

Clean and functional rooms that are ideally situated for exploring Southern Tuscany or Umbria. The rooms are sparsely furnished with the kitchen being just about functional (no tin opener, bottle opener, cooking knife, wine glasses etc.) not a problem if you're going to eat out every night but if you plan on cooking you will be limited somewhat (no microwave!). For reasons unknown the TV is about seven or eight feet in the air. Not really very helpful for watching TV really. The wifi is pretty good - went off every so often but otherwise fairly reliable with speeds 4-5mb as standard. The rooms are regularly cleaned but not thoroughly- you can expect new sheets or towels but sweeping up or mopping is not going to happen (and there's no mop or dustpan provided, so unless you want to buy your own...). Staff are friendly and helpful at the hotel. Breakfast is relaxed and they will make you a coffee or hot drink of your choice. Breakfast choice consists of ham, cheese, croissant, apricot filled croissant, yogurt, cornflakes, brioche, cake, banana, and various jams etc. The pool is a bit of a local attraction. If you're expecting quiet and solitude this isn't for you. There's a constant influx of locals either working on their tan, entertaining their kids or playing volleyball. Italian radio is played over loudspeaker quite a bit too which can be a tad wearing depending on how talented you think Ed Sheeran is. On the plus side the pool is 25m in length (not Olympic sized as a previous review states - if I ever find a hotel with a 50m pool I'd be fairly impressed). It is deep enough and wide enough to do some proper laps - get in before 2pm to avoid being dive bombed by a kid's birthday party. No matter how busy it was though we always got a sun bed and parasol which is useful. There's also a cafe for getting a sandwich. Cortona is about a mile walk away - but the walk is steep! Over that mile expect to climb about 750 feet in height. If you run up it will take about 20 mins or so if you normally pace about 4-5 mins /km on the flat. If you walk expect it to be about an hour to an hour and half so don't do it when the heat is over 30C. Not without its flaws but a decent place to stay, and could be so much better with a few improvements.

The perfect stay for a week. Explore the surrounding Umbria/Tuscany area for wine and sites. The area of course is amazing but Seven is a great base camp. There is a pool and excellent restaurant by the same name. The staff is excellent and will really take care of you. The food at Seven restaurant is amazing. The pizza will spin your head. It's that good; very much a locals place so you get to mingle with the locals, high end and trendy.

We wanted to come to the Tuscany and feel like we were in the movie "Under the Tuscan sun" and was exactly what it was, front desk personal are all extremely nice and helpful, great view, I didn't know the rooms were so big with independent kitchen, since we visited during winter time they would bring the breakfast to our room, I wish I would have more time to stay longer, If I ever comeback I would stay here again

We found 7 resort to be the perfect choice for our visit to Cortona. A wonderful layout with an Olympic size pool and grounds. The restaurant and staff go out of their way to make sure guests have everything they need. We arrived late in the evening our first night, and the staff actually stayed up past midnight waiting for our secure arrival! GianMario and his staff provided excellent winery recommendations. The short drive up to the walled city of Cortona is the perfect balance while still enjoying the more open space layout of 7 resort with a great onsite restaurant with wonderful food.

My mum and I stayed at the Seven Resort for 6 nights and we were so impressed by the service the moment we stepped off the train. Greeted by Gian Mario, the hotel director we were whisked off to the hotel (only 5 minutes from Camucia-Cortona train station by car but we didn't drive). Shown our amazing room by Alessandro, really hard worker and very helpful - our room was beautiful, it even had refrigeration and cooking facilities, a spacious bedroom and big bathroom. Very modern and super clean every day. The swimming pool is lovely and breakfast room very cute, clean and again, the waiter there was really friendly and great worker. Receptionist Evelyne was great, soo nice and helpful - she really went out of her way to give us all the information on what to do and see in Cortona. The only thing was-during our stay the lack of a car limited us and because everyone is so used to driving, everything is just '15 minutes' away by foot! (really somewhere like 40 or more, to get to Cortona and the Barrachi vineyard - by foot I want to stress!) again-not a problem if driving!! The location of the hotel in general is really great - we were right next door to a family of sunflowers,which made for some amazing views and photographs. Not to mention the view looking up to Cortona. And only 5 minutes by car to the local train station. Buses also run during summer season and quite regular service to and from Cortona :) I highly recommend the Seven Resort!!!

3 miles from the city ctr.Seven Resort, has 15 rooms & adding 30 more soon.A very good value for guests ,who have a car. You can do The Whole Tuscany thing, Assisi, Perugia, Montepultiano , Piensa, Castello de Lago with this as your base.The key is the Customer Centered Culture of the staff in this Place. You ask it .?? They will deliver. Directions, maps,dining tips...These folks ,want you to really have a good time.!!

We stayed for a week in April 2012. Good easy parking with a quiet location on the edge of the countryside. Reception was great - very friendly, helpful and informative. Excellent sized comfortable room with a useful "kitchen wardrobe" and very clean. Being really niggly the TV could have been better and better positioned. Good breakfast served by a really nice waiter. No bar/restaurant (perhaps in summer when the pool opens?) so not able to get a coffee/drink apart from DIY in the room. Very well situated for Cortona and getting about generally - the train station to Florence and Arezzo is only 5 mins by car. Development of the resort is on hold so no building site problems. Overall good accommodation with very helpful staff at a good price.

We stayed here for three nights while visiting Cortona, and I was happy with our accommodations. Evelyn, at the front desk, could not have been more pleasant or helpful when giving advice on train schedules, directions, places to eat, or any other question asked of her. The manager was quite helpful, too. The room was spacious, if not a bit sparse in decoration, and had a small kitchen. (If planning on using the kitchen to prepare meals, you may want to check kitchen supplies. We had some dishes and glasses, but no forks, knives or spoons whatsoever. As we weren't planning on cooking there, it really wasn't an issue). The breakfast, which was included in our room, was enough to hold us until lunch. Nothing special, but adequate. Wait staff was very good. The hotel is located a short drive from the ancient walled city of Cortona--maybe a 10 minute ride, which was very convenient. Also, only a short drive to the train station, grocery store and gas stations. All in all, a good value and good location.

The location of Seven Cortona was a bit difficult to find -- the GPS map was wrong, and when we found the signs, it was still hard to figure out where they were directing us. But that little trouble was completely worth it when we found the resort. Our suite was on a front corner of the main building, well appointed, and with many large windows that opened to the beautiful weather of late September. Everything was included to make even a long-term stay very comfortable, including cooking implements and dishes. It was unfortunate that we were only staying for a single night. We received exemplary service from the two gentlemen working there (one of which may have been the owner), including a wonderful restaurant recommendation and assistance with dinner reservations. There was construction going on for an apparent significant expansion to the property. Had we intended to spend more time at the resort itself, the construction noise might have been a bit bothersome. I have a feeling that the very low price I paid for the suite may have reflected this construction, and I would expect to pay more on a future reservation. My only other complaint is regarding the included breakfast, which was a little disappointing, given our other Tuscan experiences. Free wireless Internet was available (which we found rare during our trip), as well as a Skype phone in the lobby, free to use for international calling.
