Located only 500 metres (5 minutes on foot) from the very heart of Cortona, an ancient Etruscan town, Casale Girifalco is the ideal location for relaxing and stress-free holidays.
Casale Girifalco, converted from a 17th century farmhouse and tastefully restored, provides guests thanks to its stunning panoramic location, its beautiful swimming-pool and its proximity to the town centre with an ideal spot for relaxing holidays in Tuscany.
The beautiful stone-building has retained notable 16th century trimmings.
Restoration work was completed in June 2007 and all furnishings were personally and carefully picked by the owner amongst valuable genuine family antique pieces.
The mansion served up to the 18th century as a post house known as the “Locanda del Girifalco” (as is witnessed by the old coat of arms depicting a “gyrfalcon” a bird of prey also known as Falco rusticolus) where the wayfarers could spend a night under cover.
Both the villa and the farmhouse open out through large French doors (all with insect screen) onto the front garden unfolding with terracings and lawns.
At guests' disposal:
The outdoor of the Villa consists of a private garden developing on two levels.
On the upper level there is the patio with a table for al fresco dining.
BBQ and wood-burning oven and firewood on request for pizza and typical tuscan dishes.
The 4x8 metre swimming-pool specially reserved for our guests’ enjoyment is equipped with a salt electrolysis water-treatment system and sun shower.
