Description of the Cortona vacation villa rental
The Villa of the 2 Elisabette is a traditional restored Tuscan stone house within five hectares of fenced land of olive groves. The villa has five bedrooms and three bathrooms, laundry, kitchen, living room and dining room. The house itself was built around the XVII and XVIII centuries. It combines charm and authenticity. The restoration saved the traditional terracotta floors, wooden-beamed ceilings, and "pietra-serena" portals. The villa is decorated with Tuscan traditional furniture and includes a grand salon with fireplace and grand piano. Panoramic views can be admired from the house and park.

Other Vacation Rental Amenities
The historical town of Cortona, located approx. 4 kms. from the villa, offers a typical Tuscan landscape, a mixture of art and nature, medieval and renaissance. Cortona has an outstanding collection of fine art, the most famous being Fra Angelicos Annunciation in the Museo Diocesano.
Beaches are available on the Lake Trasimeno, six kms away. Both on the shore and on the islands which can be reached by ferryboats. There aren't typical shore beaches, but interesting and strangely mysterious walks in the thick vegetation which lead to quiet simple beaches and tiny villages.
You may visit the Etruscan tombs in the neighbourhood and explore the nearby historical sites such as Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi, Volterra. Should you prefer to do sports, within a short walking distance are facilities for swimming, horsebackriding and tennis.The lake of Trasimeno is a 10 minute drive away.
You can enjoy spending some time horse riding on the hills along the "pianelli" of olive groves.
From some recent years, Cortona has the home of the American University of Georgia. Cortona has better known to the American public through the books of Frances Mayes, in particular "Under the Tuscan sun" and the relevant movie with Diane Lane, directed by Audrey Wells

Dear Gabriella,

Sorry it's taken me so long to write! It took us a few days to get settled, go grocery shopping, scout out the area, ...
Anyway, we start our Italian lessons with Erica this morning, so we're settling into a routine.
...
The house is lovely! The grounds are gorgeous, and Cortona is just beautiful. We are having a great time!
...
The satellite TV is super to have, as watching Italian shows will be good for us, and it's nice to be able to watch news in English.
...
All the best,
Priscilla & Pepper
