Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I was born in the south of Italy. After marrying a Frenchman I settled down in France where I lived for many years. In 2000 we decided to move back to Italy. I've always dreamed about Tuscany so I finally decided to find a house there. I love nature, antiques and architecture. Tuscany is a perfect combination of those elements and this is why I enjoy living here.

Why the Owner Chose Cortona:
By traveling across Tuscany I randomly drove through this lovely medieval town and had a crush on it. So I asked a local what was the name of the town. He told me it was Cortona. I started to visit several properties for sale and found this lovely Etruscan building.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Best combination of nature and history. Walking distance to monuments, Belvedere, museums, restaurants, cafes, shops and nature.
