Property description

The house is a beautiful authentic restored traditional Tuscan farm house with 2 double bedrooms and 1 twin bedroom (all with original beams and floors) and 2 bathrooms. This 60 acre woodland property has spectacular views of the whole Val di Chiana and is the last property on the hill guaranteeing privacy. The famous town of Cortona with its summer festivals, concerts and excellent restaurants is 15 minutes away. Supermarkets and a petrol station are available within a 15 minute radius. Camucia’s railway station (Rome-Florence-Milan) is 20 minutes away allowing for easy day trips to the area’s most famous towns - Montepulciano, Siena, Montalcino, Pienza, Florence, Perugia, Assisi. The access road is steep at times but extremely well maintained and gravelled. This is the perfect location for privacy, peace and quiet and wonderful breathtaking views, while not at all far from the many spectacular medieval towns in the area.

Other Amenities

  • The property is high on the hill and far cooler than being in the valley. The 60 acres the house is set in guarantee privacy and quiet thanks to the one mile long private driveway. The road is steep but cemented on the bends and well kept all year round. The closest neighbours live a mile away. The views are absolutely spectacular and the pool is suitable also for children with very wide steps and one sloping side. It is set in a small valley filled with rosewood, Spanish broom, lavender and roses....moreless

Year Purchased: 1968

About the owner: We love the amazing and ever-changing views and the wildlife, sometimes we are even lucky enough to see the deer and foxes that visit at night! In winter there is snow at times and with the heating full the house is warm and comforting even in a gale. The privacy is wonderful thanks to the private road in spite of Cortona being so close. We are very happy living here, slowly working on always improving the gardens and landscaping other areas while working from home.

Why the Owner Chose Cortona:
Because it is an authentic old farmhouse with the most spectacular view in the area, shady woods and wild-life, just 15 minutes from the summer festivals and concerts, while guaranteeing peace and quiet as well as privacy since the road is private. The house is full of books and videos which you are welcome to borrow during your stay.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peace and quiet and privacy in amazingly beautiful surroundings with a pool overlooking the whole of the Val di Chiana. The house is at exactly the same altitude as Cortona and lovely and cool on hot summer nights.
