Immerse yourself in the Tuscan brand of 'dolce far niente' with a stay at this charming villa, offering stunning views of the green hills, nestled on the outskirts of the historic town of Cortona. This is a place to truly relax and leave all the stresses of modern living behind. Ideal for a family or a group of friends – and that includes your four-legged companion too – this home is waiting to welcome you with a warm embrace. Arrive to be wowed by the sprawling views and lush greenery surrounding the quaint exterior – you’ll fall in love with this gem before even crossing the threshold. Outside you’ll find a small pool, perfect for cooling dips on those hot summer afternoons. You can also organise delicious Italian feasts with your loved ones on the terrace which overlooks the breathtaking vistas – as the sun begins to set over the hills you’ll know it’s time for aperitivo. Get your Aperol spritz ready and fire off the barbecue. The inside awaits you with a cosy ambience and plenty of unique features we love – the wooden beams, the charming fireplace, and the characterful country kitchen where you can rustle up those lovely meals while gazing out of the window at the belltower of the old church in the historic centre of town. Get some good night’s rest in the comfy bedrooms and wake up well-rested and ready for another day of Tuscan bliss. You can explore the surrounding countryside by hiking or take a walk into Cortona for some sightseeing and a choice of great restaurants. For a day trip, you can take the ninety-minute drive into Florence or just a forty-minute journey will take you to the beautiful city of Arezzo.
