Built on a hill, this stone town house is right outside the old city walls (dating from the 2nd century B.C.) of Historical Centre of Cortona, an old city founded by The Etruscans, the ancient civilization that built Rome. Cortona is conveniently located in a 1,15 hrs drive from Florence, 2 hrs from Rome and Pisa International Airports, 30 mins from Perugia (in Umbria) and Arezzo, 45 mins from Siena, 35 mins from Montepulciano, 1hr from Assisi (Umbria) e Montalcino (where the famous 'Brunello' wine comes from)...all the best sights of the famous Tuscan countryside, with yellow sunflower fields in the summer and multi colored trees in the spring!

Cortona is famous as the inspiration and setting for the book Under the Tuscan Sun, (that later became a movie) written by USA writer-novelist Francis Mayes. It also homes a branch of the Georgia University - USA, for artistic matters, since 1970.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1948

About the owner: I'm a musician traveling the world, living between the US and Italy and I manage my family properties from wherever I am. I cherish the friendship we get to establish with our guests, that then become our friends and come back to stay with us! :-)

Why the Owner Chose Cortona:
This is my family house and we owned it since ever as far as we know. My mother, grandparents and great grandparents lived here.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
A breath-taking view of the Valdichiana Valley, 2 steps away from a nice park and 5 mins walk from the Historical Centre, the 'Rugapiana' promenade with all its shops, the main square with its clock tower and flight of steps over the 'Piazza'! I also enjoy very much walking at the 'Parterre', a long tree-lined unpaved road that takes you to a Tennis court overlooking the whole Valley...priceless!!!
