|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
The house is a beautiful small restored traditional Tuscan farmhouse with 2 double bedrooms and 1 twin bedroom (all with original beams and floors) and 2 bathrooms. If you wish to rent the guest tower as well it sleeps two people amd has its own bathroom. The house and pool have spectacular views of the whole Val di Chiana and thanks to its position and with 60 acres of land privacy is guaranteed. The house is full of books you are welcome to borrow during your stay. The famous town of Cortona with its summer festivals, concerts and excellent restaurants is 15 minutes away. Supermarkets and a petrol station are available within a 15 minute radius. Camucia’s railway station (Rome-Florence-Milan) is 20 minutes away allowing for easy day trips to the area’s most famous towns - Montepulciano, Siena, Montalcino, Pienza, Florence, Perugia, Assisi. The private access road is very well maintained and steeper parts are all paved. This is the perfect location for privacy, peace and quiet, as well as wonderful views, while not at all far from the many spectacular medieval towns in the area.
We are am Anglo-Italian-American couple and have lived in Italy for decades. The house has been in the family since the Sixties and is a greatly loved family home. We continue to make improvements as the years go by both to the gardens amd the house. The pool has been built respecting the natural layout of what was a pond and has spectacular ever-changing views.
The Owner purchased this villa in 1972
Because the private road guarantees peace and quiet, the evenings are cooler than in town and the pool is set in special position . This is a real home from home and rented only in the spring and summer. We are prepared to be flexible when possible to and adapt to your flight dates. We do not request reviews as we value your privacy as much as our own! This is a real Tuscan farmhouse built around 200 years ago surrounded by lots of land.
We love the amazing ever-changing views and the wildlife, sometimes we are even lucky enough to see the deer and foxes that visit at night! In winter there is snow at times and with the heating full the house is warm and comforting even in a gale. The privacy is wonderful thanks to the private road in spite of Cortona being so close. We are very happy living here, slowly working on always improving the gardens and landscaping other areas while working from home. The pool is lit for hot summer nights and very romantic!
We have spent 2 weeks at this perfect holiday location. It is absolutely quiet, situated in the middle of nature, and you have a splendid view over the valley.
The house was restored in an authentic Italian way. All necessary comfort is present. The garden is big, and there are a lot of nice locations in the shadow. The nice swimming pool is integrated in the garden in a very natural way.
The access road is not so easy for a fully loaded car. On the other hand: this road is a perfect challenge for mountain bikers !
Cette maison traditionnelle typique de la toscane nous a charmée! Nos hôtes, Eugène et Francesca nous ont attendu malgré notre retard, afin de nous montrer le chemin vers la montagne. La maison est juchée assez haut dans la colline et nécessite une montée plutôt abrubte. Cependant, la montée vaut la peine, car la vue sur le village de Camucia est à couper le souffle et on y retrouve une paix loin de la ville et on s'y retrouve à même la campagne.
Les enfants se sont retrouvés en contact avec la nature, car la maison est entourée de fleurs, d'insectes et d'animaux. (Winston et Leila les chiens de nos hôtes les ont d'ailleurs charmés!)
Pour les repas, trois endroits sont possibles. Les ustensiles y sont en grande quantité: Les nappes et les plats à décorations de Toscanes ont été appréciés.
Enfin, nous avons un seul regret et c'est de n'avoir pas eu assez de temps pour discuter avec nos hôtes qui malgré leur demeure d'à côté ont été tres discrets. Leurs conseils et remarques se sont sont avérés justes et utiles.
Merci pour tout!
Even more beautiful than in the photographs! In spite of appalling weather we had a wonderful peaceful and much-needed holiday in an immaculately clean house. We did not swim due to the weather but everything else was perfect. Would recommend to anyone wanting to get away from crowds and yet be able to go out to dinner in Cortona or other towns nearby
La casa è incantevole con un panorama splendido in una zona tranquilla. L'unica pecca è la strada per raggiungerla: un sentiero di circa 4 km stretto, ripido e pieno di buche. Consiglio di usare un fuoristrada.
