About Donato Torresi
Donato Torresi purchased this Farmhouse in 1800
Why Donato Torresi chose Casorbica-salcotto
The property was purchased by a Cortonese family from the Church back in the 1800 when the local Parish of St. Mark decided to put it on sale. Today the family retains ownership of the building which was historically a Monastery dating back to the 1400, later converted to residential use. From a geographical standpoint, the area is located at the crossing of the 3 provinces of Arezzo, Siena and Perugia, all well-known for their wealth of historic, cultural, scenic and traditional cuisine repositories . We are located only 40 mins drive from the Intl. Airport of Perugia. All major tourist and artistic cities can be easily reached by car (30 to 60 min drive max). The local railway station Camucia-Cortona is only 5 min away and the train journey to Florence takes approximately 1 hr.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Located at the foot of the hill, only 3 km from Cortona, Monastero San Silvestro offers 8 spacious, self-catering, beautifully furnished Tuscan-style apartments.
