Access to the first floor is granted both from an indoor staircase or from the outdoors. Here you find two large bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a spare bathroom.
White ceilings with exposed beams and exquisite cotto floors all complement the soft hues of natural materials throughout the house. Spacious and beautifully decorated rooms flow easily into each other, granting majestic views of the Tuscan countryside.
This floor features three spacious bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms in perfect harmony with the romantic atmosphere characterizing the whole property. Being the highest rooms in the villa they provide breathtaking vistas of the valley below, in its lush olive trees, its gently rolling hills and the shimmering lights of neighboring towns.
Sited on 2,6 ha of lush land, this sprawling estate is perched on the cusp of a hill overlooking the Tuscan countryside, lined with lavish greenery and delivering exquisite views of the valley. Of the 2,6 ha of land, about 1095 sq.m. have been turned into a manicured garden and the rest is all covered in mature olive grove.
The stunning garden features a comfortable sun terrace which enjoys panoramic sunsets, overlooking the elegant pool in travertine stone and its shimmering waterfall. Sit on the sundeck and take in the full beauty of this property and the Tuscan countryside – complete privacy surrounds the pool, allowing for true serenity when gazing out to the hills of Cortona.
This majestic villa sits in the beautiful Tuscan hills surrounding Cortona, only minutes away from the closest town where you can find restaurants, cafes and all amenities you could need. Being extra close to all key towns in Tuscany it is great for those who want to experience everything it has to offer without renouncing on tranquility.
All the most famous spots in Tuscany are at a stone’s throw, giving you the freedom to explore and get lost among the long rows of cypresses and the cobblestone alleys or simply take in all their beauty from the comfort of your own panoramic pool.
Even without the fame gained from the famous film ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’, the town of Cortona has a reputation to uphold. Between history and legend, ancient peoples and bloody battles, art and religion, this hill town is a fantastic stop on any itinerary in Tuscany. Close to Cortona you will also find stunning areas such as Lake Trasimeno, perfect for a day trip and a relaxing lunch by the shore, or Arezzo – deemed by many an open-air museum.
