This is a charming villa within walking distance from the historical centre of Cortona, situated near the exquisite renaissance church of Santa Maria Nuova, of which it enjoys a beautiful view. It lies in 4 hectars of land amidst olive trees. The villa is an old country house which in 1700 used to be a refreshment place for wayfarers who found solace in here. On its façade you can still see an ancient coat of arms depicting a gerfalcon. The villa's furnishing combines antiques with comfort and contributes to creating a cosy atmosphere. The ground floor consists of a living room, which has direct acces to the garden, a dining room with an old fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen and a toilet. A few steps to access the beautiful terrace and one extra bedroom with ensuite bathroom, with laundry area, which can host 2 people if needed. On the upper floor we find three double bedrooms: one has ensuite bathroom, the others share one bathroom with shower. The annex, about 90 square metres, is made up of a cosy living room, well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher and two double bedrooms, each with private batroom. All rooms from the main villa can be converted into rooms with two single beds i needed. The beautiful garden offers unique views and has a swimming pool for the exclusive use of the guests. Thanks to its extraordinary position the villa commands a breathtaking view of the Valdichiana. Cortona, the Etruscan town praised by many poets and writers, can be reached in a few minutes, walking along a quiet road which will bring you to its shops, museums and renowned restaurants. Choosing this villa you can decide to spend the whole day relaxing in its wonderful garden and pool, taking a stroll in the town centre or enjoying a day trip to the major cities of Tuscany and Umbria. The position of the villa offers the possibility for trekking. Only 5 minutes away there are a private club with tennis courts, football field, pool and restaurant and a riding school organising lessons as well as simple itineraries for beginners. For those who wish to combine nature and cuture together, we suggest a visit to the mystic monastery Le Celle, founded in 1200 by St. Francis. The property owners (Mrs Manuela and her mom)live in a self-contained apartment on the upper floor above the annex,to which there is a private, indipendent entrance at the back of the building.

From the Guestbook
Just returned from our trip to Italy. The stay in Cortona was a highlight. Lovely villa, great setting and close to town location. The new pool was wonderful. I would highly recommend this villa…….. Many thanks for all of your help. We hope to return to Italy and wouldn't hesitate to use your agency again. K.W
