About The Experience
Experience authentic Tuscany at this restored 14th-century apartment situated on a beautiful hillside estate. The shared grounds include a lovely swimming pool, spots for alfresco dining and a trattoria serving fresh, local cuisine. Walking and hiking trails abound in this area, and the location is great for exploring the larger region of Tuscany.
Location Description

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.
