Description from manager

Experience traditional Tuscan living from this 18th century villa outside of Cortona. The large, private outdoor space has several vantage points for you to admire panoramic views of the countryside. Cool off in the pool, eat every meal alfresco beneath the covered dining area, and take the time to wander the scenic, peaceful grounds. You’re only a short walk from Cortona, with its wonderful shops and restaurants.

This 18th century villa is gated and sits on a hillside overlooking the valleys below and olive groves. The pool, set amidst the garden, is 8x/14m (open the beginning of May through mid October, depending on the weather). There is also a covered patio with a table for alfresco dining.

About the area

The property is 1.5 kilometers away from Cortona, an ancient Etruscan hilltop town that is full of art, history, and culture. Visit ancient Etruscan tombs dating back to the second century BC. Tour frescoed churches from the 13th century, explore the original city walls, and then take in an art exhibit in the 16th century fortress. You won’t have any trouble finding restaurants featuring delicious Tuscan dishes and there are plenty of shops selling antiques, crafts, wines, and olive oils, as well as a bank, post office, and pharmacy. <br/> <br/> Nearby Attractions: Arezzo is perfect for a day trip. Once one of the most important Etruscan cities, today Arezzo is beautiful for an array of architecture spanning centuries, from Etruscan ruins to the Roman amphitheater and the Medici Fortress. The first weekend of each month brings a popular antique fair, while annually there is a festival called "Joust of the Saracens," where all of the citizens dress in medieval attire and knights representing each part of the city charge at a target representing a Saracen king. Other excellent day trip destinations from the property are to Lake Trasimeno, where you can participate in water sports, Arezzo, Perugia, and Siena.<br/> <br/> Florence (Airport): 100 km/62 mi<br/> Siena: 70 km/43.5 mi<br/> Perugia (Airport): 45 km/28 mi<br/> Arezzo: 25 km/15.5 mi<br/> Lake Trasimeno: 25 km/15.5 mi<br/> Tennis Courts: 2 km/1 mi<br/> Cortona: 1.5 km/0.93mi
