Property description

This spectacular 600 year old beautifully restored Farmhouse is located just above the famous Villa Bramasole written about in author Frances Mayes 'Under the Tuscan Sun'. The property sits on a scenic 20 acres just outside the city walls of Cortona, Italy. Walk or drive into town and immerse yourself in a 3000 year old Tuscan hill town, complete with amazing restaurants, shops, museums, and true Italian culture.

The 4BR/4BA Farmhouse sleeps 9 comfortably. Fully restored with modern appliances and bathrooms, the house was carefully restored using a local Italian architect to maintain the integrity of the original farmhouse design. Furnished with authentic Italian antiques from the 17-1800's, dressed with fine Tuscan linens by Busatti.

Make your own pizza or bread in the outdoor Brick Oven while lounging around the stone swimming pool enjoying the panoramic view. Enjoy your morning coffee under the rose arbor, later toast the sunset with a glass of wine in the olive grove overlooking the medieval city of Cortona.

Explore Tuscany with easy daytrips: Pienza 30 mins, Montepulciano 20 mins, Siena 45 mins, Assisi 45 mins, Montalcino 45 mins, Florence 1 hr, Rome 2 hrs.

LIVE THE ITALIAN DREAM IN THIS SPECTACULAR FARMHOUSE!
