VILLA DELLE SOPHORE 16+4 / 12 / 8 SLEEPS, VILLA WITH POOL IN CORTONA

Cortona Villa Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps: 16 + 4. Bedrooms: 9. Bathrooms: 7

An eighteenth century structure only a few kilometers away from Lake Trasimeno with the Etruscan town of Cortona behind it, Villa delle Sophore stands on what was once the border between the Grand Duchy of Tuscany and the Papal States and a smuggling area. The conservative renovation has not prevented the house from being made warm and hospitable, extremely comfortable and liveable. The frescoes, painted vaults, majestic entrance hall and, in particular, the decor enfold the visitor in an unreal, timeless atmosphere. Every room has been meticulously decorated, exclusively with antique furniture, the result of a patient and targeted research on the part of the owners without, however, renouncing all modern comforts: LCD television sets, stereo, internet and fully equipped gym. The guests Villa delle Sophore can count on the availability at the owners who live in a outbuilding of the villa with an independent entrance. The strategic position of the villa allows guests to organize pleasant excursions to Lake Trasimeno or to reach the nearby historical centres of Cortona, Montepulciano, Pienza, Chiusi, just a few kilometres away, as well as the famous art cities of Siena, Florence, Perugia and Roma. NO SMOKERS HOUSE.

Interior

The villa consists of two floors plus a loft. The main entrance door is on the ground floor. This floor is divided into a living area composed of sitting room, dining room with large fireplace and fully equipped kitchen and into a sleeping area composed of two double bedrooms and two bathrooms, one with tub and one with shower. A spectacular, square based, spiral staircase leads up to the first floor composed of two double bedrooms with en suite bathroom with shower (one with hydromassage shower), a bathroom with tub and double bed, two double bedrooms and two bathrooms with shower (one with hydromassage shower) and a hidden laundry room. The first floor also has two communicating rooms used as single bedroom with intermediate floor and reading room and games room and TV. In the mezanine there is also a fully equipped gym and a sitting area. In four of the double rooms it is possible to add a single bed. The firepalces in the reading room and in one of the bedrooms are ornimental. WE KINDLY ASK CLIENTS TO NOT SMOKE INSIDE THE VILLA.

Park

The exterior of the villa is well maintained and pleasant, the pool is set in the centre of a garden-park characterized by the lake climate, always mild and breezy, and by plants of rare beauty. The pair of 'sophore japaniche pendule giganti', from which the villa takes its name, represent the highest that the territory and vegetation can offer. All around are oak woods, every kind of local flora and fauna, in respect of the nineteenth century tradition that liked to mix English and Italian styles. The park is completed by a splendid period lemon-house, a solarium, an antique gazebo and the splendid fountain of the same period.

Swimming Pool

The pool is open from the last Saturday of April to the first Saturday of October. It is only a few metres from the house, in a slightly lower position and is easily reached from the garden down a slight slope. Privacy is guaranteed by a laurel hedge which separates the solarium area from the rest of the park. The pool is ten-sided and is provided with a ladder to enter the water and a cold water shower. It measures 10 x 5 m with a constant depth of 1.25 m. It is lined with PVC and the border and solarium area are in parquet. It is provided with sun beds, deckchairs and is surrounded by old trees providing areas of shade. Near the pool is a big open verandah with a large table and chairs, ideal for leisurely outdoor dining.
