Cortona apartment description

A lovely apartment in the charming Tuscan town of Cortona, the city described in the best selling book 'Under The Tuscan Sun' by Frances Mayes. Shopping, sightseeing,museums, world class restaurants; all within a few minutes walk. Sit in the piazza with a capuccino and watch Italian life unfold. Cortona is a fantastic location from which to take day trips to Florence or Rome. Go by bus or rent a car and drive through the amazing Val Di Chiana and visit hidden medieval towns throughout the valley. Montepulciano,Montalcino,Arezzo and Sienna all within an easy drive.
The apartment, with its street level entrance, has the original terracotta floors and wooden beams adding to its historical charm. Originally part of an old mill where olives were pressed into oil, Sernin 6 is a quiet, peaceful, typically Tuscan home in which to enjoy the pleasures of Cortona.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  Why the Owner Chose Cortona:
                  We fell in love with Cortona during our first visit to Italy in 2001. After exploring Sienna, Arezzo, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Montechiello and Florence, we kept returning to this beautiful town. The people, the food, the wine,the everyday hustle and bustle of Italian life; just some of the qualities that led us to settle in Cortona.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  The apartment is a two minute walk to the central piazza where you can take a seat at an outdoor table with a glass of wine and have one of the best meals of your life! Watch the Italians stroll by on their nightly 'passeggiata'. Stepping outside the door and walking just a few steps to your left you come upon a sweeping view of the valley and the northern end of Lake Trasimeno where Hannibal once marched against the armies of Rome. Enjoy your Italian vacation in this beautiful typically Tuscan apartment.
