Description from manager

PRIVATE STRUCTURE. The house, which dates 19th century, as can be seen from the inscription on sandstone conserved by the owner, has undergone renovation which has maintained the interior structure that the preceding owners had given it. The house has a large park divided between approximately 1500 sq m of garden with the rest given over to terracing with olive trees. On the top floor is the owners’ apartment, very reserved people but at the same time very helpful to guests if the need should arise. The owners’ apartment has a completely independent entrance and they do not use the park or the pool. Casa del Sole is a few hundred metres from the centre of Cortona yet pleasantly immersed in the green hill of Cortona from where it dominates the valley below. Cosy corners in the garden as well as fabulous glimpses of the view can be enjoyed by the guests in this charming property. From here the beautiful little towns of Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino but also the more important towns like Siena, Perugia, Florence and Rome can be easily reached.

The park extends around the house for about 1000 sq m, of which about 500 sq m are garden and the rest terracing with olive trees. Many large trees, such as oaks and holm oaks, linden, cypress, plum and fig trees, are present in the property. The various corners of the garden are embellished by vibernum, rosemary and spiraea bushes, bamboo and pots with various kinds of flowers.
