About the Property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The property owners are an engineer and a journalist. The property was restructured by two highly respected Roman architects, who painstakingly completed a restoration (in 2009) of this beautiful & unique town-home in the medieval Tuscan hillside town of Cetona (ca 900 AD). The blend of location (in fabulous southern Tuscany and in a city also chosen by the Italian designer Valentino for his country villa) and style (a rare and exceedingly tasteful blend of ancient and modern) make this a perfect retreat for the discerning traveler. The house is centrally located near Cetona’s main piazza, with its shops, stores, cafes and restaurants all within easy walking distance. The living room, dining room, bathroom and kitchen (fully equipped) are located on the ground floor. Also on the ground floor you will find a portion of the renovated tunnel that burrows through the Cetona hillside. During the renovation, the architects decided to wall off their portion of the tunnel for future use as a large wine cellar (see pictures). On the second floor you will find the master bedroom with a canopy bed, a full private bath with a modern bathtub carved into the rock, and an additional bedroom with two beds (all new mattresses, furniture and appliances throughout the home). Outside the front door, there is a small porch with a table and chairs where you can enjoy breakfast or a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.

Picturesque Cetona is located in the Chianti region of Tuscany, in the province of Siena. Since the 1960s, Cetona has been a haunt of 'VIPs' who have bought and renovated farm properties in and around the city. There is much to do in and around the immediate area of Cetona. Only a short drive away, art lovers will find some of the most exceptional galleries and museums in the world. In the nearby towns of Chiusi, Città della Pieve, Montepulciano, Pienza, Cortona, Perugia, Arezzo, Assis, Orvieto and Siena, history has left treasures from the time of Etruscans to the Reanaissance. And don't forget that from Cetona you can easily reach, by motor way in a little over an hour’s time, both Florence and Rome

Hikers, Riders, Bicyclists and Nature lovers will find footpaths and country roads that wind through hillsides and vineyards where they will discover hidden corners and breathtaking views. If it's sports you're after, there are sporting facilities in Cetona and surroundings. Nearby Trasimeno Lake offers a variety of water sports and don’t miss the ancient Roman baths at San Casciano, Bagno Vignoni and San Filippo, where you can take the therapeutic baths year-round in the natural hot water springs.

In the area around Cetona one of the oldest human settlements of central Italy has been discovered which goes back over 40,000 years and the remains of which can be seen in the delightful archeological park of Belverde and the 25 prehistoric caves. The finds are conserved in the museum devoted to the prehistoric period of Mount Cetona located on the ground floor of Cetona’s Town Hall, a museum which the experts have defined as 'didactically perfect'.??
