Description from manager

With glorious natural surroundings and modern comforts, this restored two-bedroom apartment makes a lovely rural hideaway for two couples or a couple with children. Perched on a hill in the Cortona countryside, the 14th-century retreat is filled with architectural character and offers lush shared grounds with a large pool, alfresco dining areas and its own trattoria.

An unpaved road leads to the property grounds, which are located in a protected nature area in the hills of Tuscany. Trees, shrubs and plants of all varieties surround the buildings of the estate, where there are several units. The shared grounds include lawns with various alfresco dining areas; a large, heated swimming pool (20 m x 6 m) surrounded by sunbeds; a trattoria serving fresh Tuscan cuisine; laundry facilities with a washing machine, clothes dryer, iron and board; and a store selling local foods and wines. There are also onsite olive groves and many walking and hiking paths. Free parking is available on the grounds.

Two-bedroom apartments are located toward the upper part of the property.


Ground Floor: The living room features a sofa, armchairs, TV with satellite and a DVD player. There is a dining area with a table for 4 people or more, and the kitchen is equipped with a 4-burner gas stove, electric oven, toaster, tea kettle and hand-painted Bizzarri crockery.

About the area

<p> The property is located in a pastoral area just 5.4 kilometers from Mercatale di Cortona, a quaint village which houses a church, a well-known trattoria, cafes and bars, a post office, supermarkets, butchers selling high-quality local meats (including the world-famous Chianina beef and salamis), a bakery, banks and a pharmacy. Those who wish to walk to the village may reach it in 40 minutes by following a footpath from the property. Lake Trasimeno and the medieval city of Cortona are both 19 kilometers away. In Cortona, tour frescoed 13th-century churches, explore the original city walls, and see an art exhibit in the 16th-century fortress. You can also visit museums and libraries, and dine on exceptional Tuscan dishes as you look out on an historic palazzo. The property’s location allows guests to explore the many other beautiful towns of Tuscany as well. A car is necessary. </p> <p> Florence: 132 km/82 mi<br/> Siena: 87 km/54 mi<br/> Assisi: 73 km/45 mi<br/> Perugia: 52 km/32 mi<br/> Arezzo: 47 km/29 mi<br/> Montepulciano: 47.6 km/29.5 mi<br/> Lake Trasimeno: 19 km/12 mi<br/> Cortona: 19 km/12 mi<br/> Mercatale di Cortona: 5.4 km/3.3 mi </p>
