- About The Experience
The well-maintained farmhouse has a detached cottage that houses a separate double bedroom and bathroom. The lovely terraced garden includes a pool with lounge chairs, as well as other seating and dining areas around the house. There is also a glassed-in porch for morning coffee and evening aperitif. The villa is a short drive to Cortona and easily accessible to Arezzo, as well as the rest of Eastern Tuscany and Umbria.
- Location Description
The city of Cortona, with its shops, restaurants and open air market is 2.5 kilometers away. 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 Appenines, 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.
