Description from manager

PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Casale dei Girasoli stands on a hill surrounded by the splendid Tuscan countryside stretching from Cortona to Sinalunga and from Arezzo to Montepulciano. A location immersed in nature, ideal for those seeking a peaceful holiday. The pre-existing farmhouse, built at the end of the 17th century, was inhabited by a large family of peasants who cultivated the extensive lands around it which were very fertile and particularly suited to the cultivation of olives. The renovations have been carried out in full respect of the original structure. The same warm familial atmosphere permeates the house today; an atmosphere kept intact thanks to the preservation of typical elements such as the original bricks, the open face beams, the terracotta. The interior of this exclusive farmhouse has been conceived to satisfy every need but the real crowning glory of the villa is the presence of a wellness centre equipped with sauna, Turkish bath and whirlpool tub and of a games room. Guests who choose this Tuscan house will have a very warm welcome and will live an unforgettable experience. The location and atmosphere of Casale dei Girasoli will be the ideal ingredients for serene and relaxing holidays immersed in the green Tuscan countryside. But at the same time this can become a strategic point for visiting the most beautiful cities of central Italy for history, culture, wine and food.

Park

All around Casale dei Girasoli is a large garden bordered by typical cypresses with olive and fruit trees in the centre. Guests can spend many relaxing moments, recharging their batteries in the sauna and Turkish bath, swimming in the beautiful pool, playing ping pong or organizing a barbecue under the large, fully equipped (with cooker too), portico next to the kitchen. The large sweep of land surrounding it permits guests to enjoy quiet walks and mountain bike rides, immersed in the shimmer of the golden corn, surrounded by the yellow corollas of the sunflowers and the violet of the alfalfa. They can enjoy glorious sunsets, unique natural scenery and the bewitching view of Cortona.

Swimming Pool

Open from the last Saturday of April until the first Saturday of October, the pool affords a beautiful view of Cortona and the surrounding gentle hills. It is sited on the same level as the villa, only 7 metres away from it. Rectangular shaped, it measures 16 x 8 m with a depth varying from 1.20 to 2.20 m; access to the water is by large steps or ladder. It is lined in PVC and purification is by chlorine.
