Nearby amenities: In our village of Montanare-Pergo, just 10 minutes walk from the house, there is a delightful cafe with outdoor seating, 2 pizzerias, 2 restaurants, a local food-market, DIY store, hairdresser and post office. Explore the Etruscan walled, medieval hill town of Cortona, a hidden gem perched majestically on the sun-drenched slopes of Monte Egidio. As you walk around this ancient and noble town you cannot help but sense the vibrations of more than 2500 centuries of history. Cortona inspired Francis Mayes to write her best-seller ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’. There is a delightful selection of street cafes, restaurants, theatre, markets & shops to enjoy and the town hosts many events during the year:- outdoor concerts, musical & opera (June, July, August); ‘Giostra del Archidado’ (jousting - May);; Antiques' Fair (September); the Diocesan and Etruscan museums are world renowned. Located on the border of both Tuscany and Umbria you can take advantage of both regions.

About the owner: The Nobile family are anglo-italian and welcome guests to vacation at their self catering rental apartments at Molino di Bordone historic Tuscan farmhouse and flour mill.
Why the Owner Chose Cortona, Arezzo, Italy:
When we stood in the driveway we knew it was right for us. At the time it was still a ruin and had been empty for over 30 years ! We were drawn by the peacefulness of the place. There were no roads nearby making it safe for the children to play freely.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
360 degree views of wooded hills, vineyards, olive groves, lake and stream running through. A lovely big swimming pool with loungers and grassy areas for sunbathing and reading. For families with children there are soccer & volley ball nets, a croquet lawn, swings and climbing frame, bikes of various sizes and a trampoline, used not just for jumping but also star gazing at night - we have no light pollution. We are walking distance (1km) from 2 coffee bars, food market, 2 restaurants, pizzeria, beauty salon, hairdressers, hardware store, clothing shop. We are only minutes from the historic town of Cortona and yet immersed in tranquillity. You can walk, run or bike for miles and not need to touch the asphalt.
