ITALY, TUSCANY, AREZZO, CORTONA
The senses awaken as soon as you enter the avenue that leads to this marvellous country house, which dates from the 1600s and was for many years the summer residence of a noble Cortonese family.
A meticulous restoration has preserved its true character and fine original architectural elements, combining the elegance of the original building with all the comfort, services and facilities of a sound hotel tradition. The villa offers an exceptional setting: the gentle Tuscan hills and an incomparable view of the town of Cortona silhouetted on the horizon as if protecting the villa.
The grounds host an elegant swimming pool (18 m x 9 m), a spacious patio surrounded by majestic ancient oak trees, vineyards and olive groves, and a charming well in working order. Inside, the villa offers elegant and welcoming areas decorated with old prints and period paintings.
The 6 hectares of land include 1 hectare of vineyard.
The property is the perfect solution for anyone choosing this selected property for its location and the various opportunities the area offers.
Whether guests occupy the rooms found in the main country house or those located in the annex, their need for peace will be guaranteed.
From the windows, the gentle panorama of Tuscan hills and the typical scents of the Cortona countryside…
The doors of the elegant three storey main house open into the areas, featuring stone fireplaces and original terracotta floors, typical of the local architecture. Here guests can relax and read, or chat as they sip a drink. The curtains and soft carpets that furnish the hall echo the muted architectural tones, and elements from sixteenth century altars add a particularly original decorative touch.
The hall leads to the living room with its sofas and tables for relaxing. A stone staircase rises to the first floor where some of the 15 rooms are located, furnished with valuable antique furniture. Other rooms have been created in the adjacent annex, each different in shape, dimensions and furnishings, but all decorated with valuable pieces of antique furniture and tastefully co-ordinated soft furnishings that add to them charm and atmosphere.
Rooms of all types are equipped with satellite TV, minibar, safety deposit box, internet connection and large bathrooms featuring either a hydromassage bathtub or hydromassage shower.
Every room has a marvellous view of the Tuscan countryside; some have an independent entrance from the hotel grounds, others again on the second floor have romantic mansard ceilings.
