Cortona Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Kitchen, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps

Le Oche Grigie, a Country House, is located in the picturesque hills of Tuscany, just outside the village of Farneta and a few steps from a 9th century Abbey (featured in the movie 'Under the Tuscan Sun'). We are located ten minutes outside the historic Etruscan city of Cortona. The House, built in the late 1800’s, offers apartments and has been restored to the traditional Tuscan style complete with antique furniture. All lodging has air conditioning and heating. The owners are onsite daily to give information and help with travel arrangements. Each unit includes a full kitchen, a modern bathroom, and two or three beds. Rooms are available separately, or the house can be rented as a whole. Ground floor apartments have patios with outdoor furniture. The swimming pool, surrounded by a beautiful olive garden, is an ideal place to relax. A riding school is nearby, as well as a golf course and a thermal hot springs. Privacy is respected. The rooms and grounds are meticulously kept.

Excursions in the area: Our Country House is in a very advantageous location for daily excursions to various regional sites of interest ranging from artistic and cultural offerings to wine tasting and great culinary delights. An example of an excellent day trip would begin with a visit to Montepulciano, with its beautiful 14th century palaces and cantinas loaded with fine wines. On your way to S. Quirico d'Orcia, (the Vald'Orcia site has been declared Property of the Humanity) you could take an enchanted Journey through Pienza. Upon arrival in St. Quirico d'Orcia, you can rest and take in the wonderful atmosphere of the village church, built in the 9th century. Don't miss Bagnovignoni, only 3 miles from St. Quirico. It will surprise you with its glorious plaza, which used to be a large ancient spa. If you are getting tired of walking, you can relax in a traditional family restaurant in Montalcino, where you'll be able to taste a local red wine or a highly regarded Brunello.

Don't miss these places!

Angela and Emanuele

We've been married 20 years, we have 3 children, Yari, Samia and Tindara.

The love of Tuscany, its people, the hills, the city and the art have captured our heart.

A choice to rediscover the simple life of the countryside with the rites and traditions. Follow the rhythms of nature to slow a busy life that leaves no space to listen inside.

A choice to create a different kind of tourism, the kind that builds a network of relationships and friendships among people.

It means getting to the heart of a country, its houses, people, art, smells and food.

The quality and availability of a family environment is at the basis of the relationship we wish to establish with our guests because this what we would want if we were in their position.

For more information, and learn about our particular history that has brought us in Tuscany, visit our website .

Angela e Emanuele purchased this apartment in 2011

We are realizing the dream of creating a protected area of the soul. A reserve to share feelings and emotions, to read a book in the shade of the olive trees, walking barefoot on the grass freshly cut, get up before the sun to meditate on the hot bricks of the pool or let the light sunsets behind the hills sipping good wine.

Open to the culture of the world and its vibrations, we are simply drifting without haste.

To make your stay unique, we have selected the best places to eat, drink, restaurants, wineries ,bars, shops and we have created an information flyer with descriptions, location photos, opening hours, closing day. We have tried to include as much information as possible.

Every day the baker's van stops by front our home and the guests can buy typical Tuscan bread.

From our neighbor you can find vegetables and seasonal fruits, eggs and olive oil directly from the producer to the consumer.

Upon request, they can cook her naturally raised chickens and potatoes in the wood oven.

We are onsite daily to give information and help with travel arrangements . There are many tours discovering monuments, churches, museums and the impressive Etruscan and Roman treasures. Nature trails, artistic, gastronomic and film location. Is available for our guests an Ipad with pictures of the itineraries and, upon request, a navigator.

It is possible rent a Bike and Mountain Bike to rediscover the trails of Tuscany.

New services for 2013:

School of Tuscan cuisine with the famous chef Donatella,

Flights hot air balloon to treat yourself to an unforgettable and truly special day.

Perfect choice for seeing Tuscany

I had an absolutely lovely time staying at Le Oche Grigie and highly recommend it to other travelers. If you are looking for the authentic Tuscan experience look no further. I was so comfortable in the beautiful, newly renovated, and stylishly decorated apartment I stayed in at Le Oche Grigie. The house is perfectly located if you want to make day trips to Cortona, Arezzo, Florence, Montepulciano and Orvieto. Angela and Emanuele are great hosts and go out of their way to make sure you know all of the best local sights/restaurants/shopping etc. Just perfect for your stay in Tuscany.

Emanuele mi ha raccontato all'arrivo alle Oche Grigie di essere un
principainte di questo tipo di attività.
Certo è il suo entusiamo rafforza, dove ce ne fosse ancora bisogno, la
consapevolezza di essere arrivati ad un luogo confortevole fino alla carezza,
quella attenta di chi presta attenzione all'ospite.
Così divventa gradevole ogni sera, dopo aver visitato luoghi carichi di bellezze,
tornare in qualche modo "a casa"
Grazie

St. Egidio and affords a grand view of the Chiana Valley and Lake Trasimeno.
