A tremendous amount of effort has been put into creating an accommodation that exceeds the expectations of our guests. We call it 'Luxury Country Living'.

Elements such as a gourmet kitchen with fireplace, brand new appliances, granite counter top, glass door cupboards, dishwasher and American style refrigerator. Bedrooms, each with their own bathroom and shower, feature large beds, luxury linens and comforters and plenty of drawer space. The living room features leather sofas, a fireplace, and a plasma TV with DVD player. A private pool and garden offer panoramic views of the valley and the surrounding hills. Outdoor dining and barbeque areas are set among ancient olive trees that accent the garden.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

Why the Owner Chose Cortona, Arezzo, Italy:
I fell in love with the area on one of our many trips to Italy and decided this was the place I wanted to retire. After renovating the house, I invited various friends to stay and use the house, they were so impressed that I decided to open the doors to other guests who would also appreciate the house, the area and the convenience to many of Tuscany and Umbria's historical and beautiful sites.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Casa Montisole is located on a hilltop above a beautiful agricultural valley with 180 degree views of countryside, valleys and nearby ancient castles. It is a magical place that is wonderful for relaxation or a great base to use for sightseeing and getting to know Tuscany and Umbria.
