Description from manager

Two couples looking to have an ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’ experience need look no further. This rustic stone villa, within walking distance of Cortona, overlooks the beautiful Valdichiana Valley, and offers two bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is a private swimming pool and a covered terrace for outside dining. The location is ideal for visiting Eastern Tuscany and Umbria.

Immersed within a private landscape of woods and olive groves, the house is nestled into the hillside overlooking the Valdichiana Valley and the city of Cortona. The private garden can be accessed from both the ground and first floors. A special note about this villa is that it sits only a few hundred meters away from the villa owned by Frances Mayes, the author of Under the Tuscan Sun. This villa has a private swimming pool within a well-kept garden and against the house, a covered and furnished terrace with a barbecue. Parking is available on the property.

<p>Ground Floor: A typical stone farmhouse of the region, the restoration has preserved many of its original features including wood beamed ceilings. Furnished with rustic charm, the living/dining room has chairs, a wooden table, and an old stone fireplace. The reading room with a sofa has a Satellite TV to the garden. The fully equipped kitchen has an oven, a dishwasher, a toaster, an American coffee maker, and an Italian moka stove-top coffee maker (for espresso). One bathroom has a shower. The villa has a washing machine but no clothes dryer. </p>

<p>First Floor: There are two double bedrooms. The first bedroom with a queen size bed (160 cm) has a nice balcony with table and chairs. The twin bedroom (90 cm), which can be made into a king size bed (180 cm) upon prior request, has a set of French doors going out to the garden. Both bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with showers.

<p>The city of Cortona, with its shops, restaurants and open air market is a 20-minute walk away.
