This is a place to enjoy.... Close to the historic town of Cortona and set in acres of olives and pastures - this beautiful 17th century newly renovated Mill House with private pool has been painstakingly restored and provides an authentic taste of Tuscan country living.
The villa has its own private entrance and each room has all the original features - including chestnut beams and terracotta-tiled floors.
The first floor has a large comfortably furnished and spacious sitting room filled with a rich collection of books. The kitchen and dining area have recently been refitted. The master bedroom has a double bed and en suite bathroom with a bath. On the second floor there are 3 additional bedrooms; a bedroom with a double bed, a bedroom with two single beds and a single room. The second bathroom has a powerful shower.
The large swimming pool (11 meters by 7 meters) lies on a sunny terrace with a beautiful almost endless views. There is stunning 'hand made; olive wood gazebo. Lots of comfortable sun beds to enjoy the Tuscan sunshine or simply just relax.
The rambling gardens are filled with geraniums and other colorful flowers, lavender and rosemary among other Mediterranean plants and aromatic herbs.
Stroll outside to the garden to sip your morning cappuccino and enjoy a panoramic view of the lush Tuscan landscape. Sweet fragrant lavender and rosemary fill the air. Wander around until you find a comfy corner to sit and contemplate the beauty around you listening to bird song and distant church bells. It is all about relaxing and enjoying your well deserved vacation in Tuscany.
There are also ponies and horse in the adjoining pasture. (These can be moved on if you are not a horse lover), The ponies are freindly and well cared for and you can choose to help feed them and, if you are confident, to ride them enjoying the fabulous views.
Wisteria Villa is famous for its prize-winning olive oil, It is a working organic olive farm where horses graze in the meadows and chickens run free amidst the trees. It is a model of healthy, sustainable living.
We have a large organic vegetable garden and pick our own plants and fruit for our herbal tisanes and jams.
Be adventurous and walk through olive groves and explore the Mediterranean forestland that lies above the house. Stretches of Roman and Medieval roads are hidden across the mountains where breathtaking walks lie waiting for you to discover. There is also an extremely handy well stocked supermarket within walking distance (approx 10 to 15 minutes) opposite the local Cafe and a Pizzeria renown for its excellent pizza.
