Cortona villa description

Experience the wonders of Tuscany and the convenience of a restored hamlet with all the comforts of home. One of several Tuscany apartments, this large holiday rental finds its home on a self-contained estate that includes two restaurants, a chapel, a beautiful swimming pool, and a full-time staff waiting to help you with all your travel needs! Even better, it's within close proximity of the characteristic Tuscan town of Cortona, which is where the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" starring Diane Lane takes place as well as the book it's based off of by Frances Mayes.
(35,000 m2) This beautiful 19th century hamlet has been carefully and lovingly restored by the owner, a member of a noble Cortonese family. It is situated at the base of a hill, looking up towards the town of Cortona, which sits on top of the hill. The estate consists of eight apartments within three buildings, all similarly decorated with some antique pieces. There is also a nice restaurant, a bar, a wine bar serving traditional foods, a lovely chapel, and a beautiful new swimming pool with showers and changing rooms. The dimensions of the pool are 10m x 20m, 0.9-2.2m deep. The pool is open from the middle of May to the middle of September. There is also a small hall for meetings, as well as an intimate hotel with twelve rooms. There is a shared washing machine available.
(180 m2/1,937 ft2) Ground Floor: Formerly housing the olive mill, this apartment is one of the largest on the estate. Its arched entrance is of stone, and there is a covered patio with arches reminiscent of the architecture of the 1400s. This apartment also has a sun terrace and opens up to a beautifully tended garden. The pool area and restaurant are located about 150 meters away. There is a large living/dining room with a fireplace, sofa bed, arm chairs, and dining table with chairs. The kitchen with dishwasher opens onto the living room and is fully equipped. Up two steps there are one queen bedroom, a twin-bedded room, a bathroom with tub and handheld shower head, and a second bathroom with shower.
