About franco rossi

My name is Franco ,born in Cortona live with my family at Camucia

franco rossi purchased this house in 1974

Why franco rossi chose Cortona

e' stata la casa che mi ha permesso di vivere da solo la mia giovinezza in maniera indipendente e , piccola ma confortevole, fuori da Cortona ma allo stesso tempo dentro ,piacevoli serate da solo e in compagnia con un contorno di panorama senza fine lontananza le luci di Montepulciano ,Pienza, Monte S, Savino .Lucignano,di giorno la vetta del Monte Amiata, la meravigliosa Valdichiana,il sole preso sul terrazzzo,i buoni libri la bella musica ascoltata sono e restano dei bellissimi ricordi legati a questa casa e sono sicuro che chi avra' la possibilita' di venirci da solo o in compagnia potra' assaporare queste piacevoli sensazioni..

What makes this house unique

appena ristrutturata, arredi nuovi,curata riscaldata d'inverno, climatizzata in estate è un posto incantevole con una vista panoramica unica , indipendenza e privacy,balcone solarium , un'altra,terrazza ideale per cenette e aperitivi con amici al chiaro di luna in compagnia di una buona bottiglia di vino toscano.

Cortona Visit 2017

  • 5 of 5

This is one of those places you don't want anyone to know about fearing that it will be booked next time you want to go there. Franco's place is outstanding. The bedroom is large enough for two people with plenty of storage space. The bed was very comfortable.There is a door to an outside terrace where you can sit with a glass of wine and look out over the valley. What a view. The kitchen is well equipped and there was coffee, milk, juice, and croissants waiting for us. We didn't cook there but there were plenty of pots and pans and utensils. The bathroom and shower were very good. It is in a very quiet location. The town of Cortona is a short walk away, maybe 3-5 minutes. Outside the front door is another terrace with four chairs and a table with a great view. Franco was very helpful regarding what to do in the area. We would have liked to have an iron or maybe we didn't find it. We wish we could have stayed longer.

Ottima soluzione per visitare Cortona e dintorni Amazing location to visit Cortona and surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Abitazione molto tranquilla appena fuori le mura, panorama notevole sulla Val di Chiana e la vicinissima S Maria Nuova. Molto pulita e ben attrezzata, confortevole, curata nei dettagli. Accoglienza amichevole. Proprietario gentile e prodigo di informazioni. Difetti riscontrati nessuno. Consigliabile senza esitazione.

The red-painted house e'appena outside the ancient Etruscan walls, but at the same time in the town of Cortona, a comfortable walk of 400 mt allows you to be in the center of the ancient and charming city rich history of monuments, churches and museums, restaurants, bars, antique shops, and more, enjoy life and daily habits before returning to enjoy the tranquility and privacy that the "red-painted house" ... provides a good glass of wine drunk on the terrace both day and night with panoramic view of the Chiana valley, and the wonderful below the church of Santa Maria Nuova alone are worth the stay ....
