The villa is the perfect place to spend a holiday immersed in the sweet Tuscan landscape. The villa is located just 500 meters (15 minute walk) from the heart of the historical center of the famous Etruscan town of Cortona, now one of the most beautiful and famous in Italy, and is located in one of the most charming hills of Cortona, from which you can enjoy a wonderful view over the valley and on some of the historical monuments. The property is divided into two adjacent units, both with private entrance from the garden, but is rented exclusively all together for a total of 12 persons.
The villa rises around an old farmhouse dating back to the 17th Century, lovingly restored and decorated by the owners who have kept the ancient stone structure of the house intact and have used materials and fine furnishings to equip the property with all modern comforts but at the same time preserve the historicity and elegance of the villa.
The villa has a beautifully landscaped garden equipped with garden furniture and tables to enjoy al fresco dining; the pool is located a few meters from the house, down beautiful stone steps which lead you onto a natural terrace where the swimming pool lies perfectly exposed to the sun and in a panoramic position.
Swimming pool (4 x 8 m, minimum depth 1,20 m, maximum depth 1.80 m), lies perfectly exposed to the sun and in a panoramic position, equipped with deck chairs, umbrellas and solar shower. The pool has a water electrolysis treatment system.
Outside there is also a barbecue, a pizza oven and a free private parking.
