Cortona is a small charming town in the Valdichiana, or Chiana Valley, in the province of Arezzo in southern Tuscany.

The city, enclosed by stone walls dating back to Etruscan and Roman times, sits on the top of a hill about 600 meters (about 1968 feet) above sea level. This dominant position over the valley offers a spectacular view from all over the town of the surrounding valley and even Lake Trasimeno.

The heart of Cortona is Piazza della Repubblica, with the Palazzo Comunale or town hall building overlooking the square.

The city is small but offers many interesting places to visit, among these the Diocesan Museum (where you can admire a beautiful panel painting of the Annunciation by Beato Angelico) and the MAEC (The Etruscan Academy Museum of the City of Cortona), where it is possible to see many artifacts found in the Eruscan archeological sites in the area. You can also request additional information about the Archeological Park at the museum.

You should not miss a visit to the beautiful Santa Margherita Sanctuary, patron of the city, and to the Girifalco Fortress. Both are on the highest point on the hill and are easy to reach after a short, uphill walk. Following the path that follows the city walls, you can also enjoy a beautiful view over the surrounding countryside. The Girifalco Fortress, constructed for military purposes, has undergone many substantial changes throughout the centuries and today only a part is open to the public.

Various small shops on the main streets of Cortona offer local handmade items and gastronomical products. Great red wines are made in the area (we are just a few kilometers from Montepulciano and Montalcino) and all of the wine bars offer a wide selection.

There are many restaurants in the city, most offering traditional local and Tuscan cuisine (the Chianina cattle, one of Italy's oldest, high quality bovine breeds is bred in Valdichiana).

Just outside of Cortona's walls you'll find the Franciscan hermitage Le Celle, the first monastery built by Saint Francis of Assisi in 1211, where a small community of friars still lives today. Through the course of the centuries, the hermitage was restructured and enlarged several times but Saint Francis's small cell has always been conserved in its original state and can be visited today.

In summer, there are many festivals dedicated to the arts which sees the participation of several international stars and artists.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Kim and Diane bought the property after it became available after Kim had stayed there 10 years earlier- Diane invested sight unseen!

Why the Owner Chose Cortona, Arezzo, Italy:
Both the property and the town have a unique pull. The emblem above the front door serves to prove that the casa was once inhabited by St. Margherita - patron saint of Cortona. St Margherita is usually depicted with her trusty dog. Cortona is a lovely town with plenty to do on its own but its proximity to Rome and Florence can not be overlooked.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Inside Walls Of Cortona.. a stroll to all the wonderful amenities of Cortona. 1 1/2 hour train into Florence..2 1/2 hour train in to Rome
