Description from manager

The privacy and serenity of the Tuscan countryside create a relaxing atmosphere at this restored farmhouse and guest cottage. The gated grounds feature picturesque greenery, a swimming pool, an external kitchen and a pizza oven. This family-friendly property also offers beautiful views of Cortona, which is a short drive away.

The villa is set in the Tuscan countryside amidst olive and cypress trees. An automatic gate opens onto fenced grounds, which overlook Cortona and the Chiana valley and are surrounded by holm trees and parkland. Wide expanses of grass border a large pool with sunbeds and umbrellas, a children’s swing set, volleyball net and shaded ping-pong table. An outbuilding houses an enclosed kitchen equipped with an oven, dishwasher and dining area with a table. There is also a barbecue. The adjacent outdoor gazebo has a table with bench seating and spectacular views of the Cortona hillside. Next to the kitchen there is a stone pizza oven.

About the area

<p>Located in Tuscany’s beautiful, green countryside, the hillside villa is only 4 kilometers away (5-minute drive) from Cortona but far from the noise of the main roads. An ancient Etruscan hilltop town, Cortona 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. There are plenty of restaurants featuring delicious Tuscan dishes, and many shops selling antiques, crafts, wines, and olive oils. The town also has a bank, post office, and pharmacy. Day trip options include Lake Trasimeno, Arezzo, Perugia, Siena and Florence. Onsite parking is available for two to three cars. A car is necessary.</p> <p>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.</p> Florence (Airport): 120 km/75 mi<br/> Siena: 60 km/37 mi<br/> Perugia (Airport): 50 km/31 mi <br/> Arezzo: 32 km/19.9 mi<br/> Lake Trasimeno: 20 km/12.4 mi <br/> Cortona: 4 km/2.5 mi
