Uniquely positioned, this location makes it easy to visit sites and towns in both Tuscany and Umbria.

The 17th century farmhouse is located on a serene hillside that includes 15 acres of terraced olive groves and assorted fruit trees. A private swimming pool is positioned within a panoramic terrace and faces west, offering picturesque sunset views, overlooking the valley below and the rooftops of Cortona perched on the nearby hillside. A barbecue is available for al fresco meals. Parking is available within the property.

About the area

<p>The charming town of Cortona, with its shops, restaurants and open air market, is a 20-minute walk away along a lane that passes through woods, over a stream and up past a Renaissance church. Cortona has all the necessities and services including banks, bars, a post office, antique shops, pharmacies, and grocery stores. This city is an encounter with art, history, and culture. You'll rediscover Tuscany's past in Cortona, which has changed very little in the last 400 years or so. Sitting in the center of the triangle formed by Arezzo, Siena, and Perugia, as well as being near Lake Trasimeno and the Apennines, Cortona is both ideally located for day trips and a sparkling gem of the region. In Cortona there is no end to picturesque streets and amazing historic buildings. Tour frescoed churches from the 13th century; explore the original city walls; see and art exhibit in the 16th century fortress. You can also visit the local museums and libraries, tiptoe around ancient monasteries and tombs dating back to the second century B.C., dine on the best Tuscan dishes as you look out on an historic palazzo or drive out to one of the villas dotting the countryside.</p> Rome: 220 km/137 mi<br/> Florence: 120 km/75 mi<br/> Perugia: 50 km/31 mi<br/> Arezzo: 30 km/19 mi<br/> Camucia: 3 km/1.9 mi<br/> Cortona: 1 km/0.62 mi
