|The villa has five bedrooms and three bathrooms, laundry, kitchen, living room and dining room. The two ground floor rooms are airy and well adapted for family life. The villa is set on a landscaped hill surrounded by 5 hectares of olive groves. The house itself was built around the XVII and XVIII centuries. It combines charm and authenticity. The restoration saved the traditional terracotta floors, wooden-beamed ceilings, and "pietra-serena" portals. The villa is decorated with Tuscan traditional furniture and includes a grand salon with fireplace and grand piano. Panoramic views can be admired from the house and park.
The view from any window is similar to viewing a landscape painting by an Old Master. There is a picnic area outside, on the grounds of the villa. A series of tree-lined avenues covers all the property, along which can be met pacific hidden places and panoramic looks of the Chiana Valley (Valdichiana), and mountains to the horizon.
Beaches are available on the Lake Trasimeno, six kms away. Both on the shore and on the islands which can be reached by ferryboats. There aren't typical shore beaches, but interesting and strangely mysterious walks in the thick vegetation which lead to quiet simple beaches. The tiny villages by the docks give you access to anything you might need.
Surroundings. The town dominates the wide plain and is close to the border of Umbria. From Cortona you can easily reach many other famous towns and locations, such as: Assisi, Perugia, Spoleto, Gubbio, Città di Castello, Montepulciano, San Sepolcro, Arezzo and Florence.
Horse riding. You can enjoy spending some time horse riding on the hills along the "pianelli" of olive groves, in the Cortona countryside
