Cortona apartment description

Have your own “Under the Tuscan Sun” experience in this historic apartment in Cortona, a small and picturesque hilltop town in Tuscany. Narrow winding lanes lead you to original little shops, piazzas with cafes, good restaurants, and living history. From your rooftop terrace you can sip a glass of wine at day’s end and enjoy the magnificent view.
Even though the building is located in the center of town, the area is relatively free of traffic sounds, as Via Nazionale is closed to vehicles. The windows face the back, and are not facing the street. The main entrance leads to Casa Erma 1 on the ground floor and to Casa Erma 2, which is a larger apartment upstairs, distributed over three stories. Free public parking is available within 200 m of the house.
(250 m2/2,690 ft2) Ground Floor: The entrance is shared with Casa Erma 1 on the ground floor. The apartment is laid out over three floors, and some bedrooms and bathrooms are located on different levels and connected by small staircases or steps. Second Floor: (10 stairs) This floor features three bedrooms, a full en suite bathroom that is shared between the three rooms, and a guest bathroom. Because the en suite bathroom is shared and because the second bedroom is accessed via the first bedroom, this floor is suitable for a family with children. The first bedroom has a bed slightly smaller than a king-size bed (170 cm), 2 bedside tables, a large closet, an armchair and a chest of drawers with a mirror. This bedroom has an en suite bathroom that is shared with the other two bedrooms on this floor, with two showers, toilet, sink and bidet. The second bedroom, which is accessed through the first bedroom, is furnished with two single beds (90 cm), 2 bedside tables, a closet, a chest of drawers with mirrors and an armchair. Two stairs lead to the third bedroom, which has a bed slightly smaller than a king-size bed (170 cm), 2 bedside tables, 1 large closet, chest of drawers with mirror, as well as a table with two chairs and an armchair. Up 5 stairs is a guest bathroom with toilet and sink. Third Floor: (18 stairs): There is a large kitchen, a living room, a lunchroom, a storeroom and another bathroom. The kitchen has a table and 8 chairs, a stove, an oven and a huge stone sink, as well as a dishwasher, and a fireplace. The living room has a sofa, 2 armchairs, a table for four, satellite TV and a DVD player, and a fireplace. Up 5 stairs is the lunch room. Up two more stairs is a bathroom with shower, toilet and sink. Fourth Floor: (12 stairs): There is a bedroom with 2 single beds (90cm), two bedside tables, a chest of drawers with a mirror and a cloths rack. The private bathroom with bathtub, bidet, sink and washing machine has a window facing the valley. Up 5 stairs is a guest bathroom with toilet and sink. Roof terrace: The terrace has a table for 6 and a barbecue. Wonderful views over the Tuscan hills and valleys.

Housekeeping Available: 12 Euro per hour Chef Service Available: 20 Euro per hour Babysitting Service Available: 15 Euro/hour Firewood: Upon request Please Note: There are several steps and levels within this apartment.
