About the property

A cosy and spacious house to enjoy the true taste of Tuscany.

La Casa dello Scoiattolo, embedded in the greenery of pine, cherry and acacia trees, but only five minutes drive from Cortona, allows you to immerse yourself in a peaceful environment, with the city centre close at hand.

The location is pretty unique, in the heart of the Sant’Egidio at 750 meters on the sea level (you won't need air conditioning!). You can enjoy a beautiful sight on the hill of Cortona and the Trasimeno Lake. It’s an ideal base for visits to the charming nearby cities of Tuscany and Umbria: Arezzo, Siena, Perugia, San Gimignano, and a great starting point for excursions in the countryside at the same time.

The property is bounded by a fence, which ensures privacy for the guests, and has an automatic gate and a large space right in front of the house where you can park your car.

You can relax by the swimming pool and enjoy a stunning view over the valley from the solarium. Nearby the swimming pool a barbeque is available.

The house is cosy, comfortable, and has a family atmosphere. The ample and luminous living room has two comfy sofa. The kitchen, with lunch table, is spacious and complete with new burners and oven, dishwasher and a large fridge.

You can eat in the both the kitchen and the living room. But, at least once, have a nice dinner outside enjoying the sunset.

The house provides accommodation for up to eight people in four bedrooms: one with a double-size bed on the first floor, one with a three-quarters-size bed and two twin rooms on the ground floor.

In each floor there is a bathroom: the one on the ground floor has a bath-tub, the one on the first floor has a shower stall.

Satellite TV and washing machine are included. Wifi is available on demand.

We are looking forward to welcoming you.

average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Fantastic location, calm and very well located

  • 5 of 5

Cette maison est idéalement située, á l arrière de Cortona, dévoilant une vue magnifique sur la plaine. Elle permet un séjour au calme, tout en étant á quelques minutes de Cortona et des principaux axes routiers vers les différents sites á visiter.

Spacieuse, elle offre tout le confort et l'équipement souhaité. La piscine, avec ses 2 niveaux, est très agréable, surtout pour les jeunes enfants.

Cerise sur le gâteau: la famille propriétaire fait tout pour que le séjour se passe pour le mieux et est d'une aide précieuse pour toute question. Un vrai plaisir.

Qui nous donne certainement l'envie d'y retourner ...
