Cortona farmhouse description

Holiday home “Babbo Giuseppe” is located in San Lorenzo di Cortona, Tuscany. After spending there her childhood and adolescence building these tourist apartments was something of a dream come true for owner Martina.

In 2009 Martina and her mother Annunziata decided to set about renovating their old country-house, a place which their most cherished memories were deeply attached to. As a token of their loving memory and gratitude the home was named after beloved father Giuseppe and so was born holiday home “Babbo Giuseppe”; the property was completely refursbished and converted from the old contry-house. The house consists of a main building housing the reception, 4 apartments as well as a guest houses spreading over two floors. Nestled in the verdant Tuscan countryside, surrounded by green fields and gentle hills our holiday home is located only 1 ½ miles from the charming town of Cortona, a superb town of art and history anciently built by the Etruscans. The old stables, the old barn, the former cellar and the bedrooms located on the upper floor were converted into cosy apartments, well-lit by large windows looking out onto the surrounding countryside that takes on new colours as the seasons alternate.
Each holiday apartment was named after its original intended use: “La Stalla” (the stable), “La Cantina” (the cellar), “La Terrazza” (the terrace), “La Colombaia” (the dovecote) and “Il Fienile” (the barn). Only a few yards from the apartments, set in beautiful garden surroundings with laurel hedging and sweet-smelling lavender bushes a beautiful swimming-pool mts 12x6 depth 1.2 open from June through to September, specially reserved for their enjoyment, invites guests to lie back and relax. Like all apartments the swimming-pool too offers stunning views over the enchanting town of Cortona.
