About the property

Cortona location

This pretty apartment is situated in a Tuscan stone farmhouse which nestles peacefully in the foothills of Cortona. Immersed in the beautiful landscape of the Valdichiana valley, it enjoys lovely views over hilltop villages, sunflowers, olive groves and cypresses. It is conveniently located for those who wishing to visit Tuscany and Umbria.

The farmhouse which dates from the 19th century has been recently restored and care has been taken to preserve its original features such as terracotta floors, beams and fireplaces.

The pool (12 x 6m) is spacious and the well-kept gardens with tables and barbecue offer pleasant areas for alfresco dining and relaxing.

There is a fully-equipped laundry room on the ground floor of the main farmhouse for guests to use.

The area offers numerous country walks and riding, tennis and golf are nearby. Bikes and mountain bikes are available for the guests' use.

The railway station at Camucia and the shops and restaurants are a 5-minute walk away (1 km). It is 3 kms from Cortona, 30 km from Arezzo and 40 kms from Siena.

Nestling peacefully in the beautiful Valdichiana valley and close to the Tuscany/Umbria border, this agriturismo offers the perfect combination of both a relaxing and cultural holiday.

The ancient Etruscan town of Cortona with its rich historic and artistic heritage is only 5 km away and offers a wide variety of restaurants and shops.

The little village of Monsigliolo is 500 m away (easy walking distance) and has a small supermarket, bar and tobacconist's.

Good motorway links make Florence, Siena, Assisi, Rome and Naples easily accessible.

We stay here 9 days in Junem 2014. The apartment nice, lovely decorated and clean. Surroundings incl. the pool was well takening care. Water was about 120 cm deep in the other side and it was just perfect to our daughter and of course deep enough for adults in the other side. We visited many different places neaby and lovely Cortona was near. Francesca was very helpful and friendly. Her mother's was made a very tasty pie for us.

Excellent experience and beautiful setting... Just lovely

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this beautiful apartment for one week in June, 2014. At the time, our four children were 13, 11, 9 and 7. The space was simply perfect for our family! I cannot describe what a wonderful experience we had, from beginning to end. The rental agent was thorough and professional and answered all of our questions in advance. We drove from Rome and easily found the farmhouse. The owner, Francesca, met us and ensured that our stay was really perfect. The setting was gorgeous, the pool fantastic, the garden lovely. The apartment was big, airy and impeccably clean. It was great having two bathrooms and a washing machine as well. We used the grill outside every evening and ate most nights at the tables outside. The twinkling lights of Cortona shimmered above us, and it was quiet and peaceful. The location was convenient to many hill towns. We drove to Siena, Assisi, Montepulciano, Chiusi, and Cortona. We took the local train from Camucia into Florence, and it could not have been easier. I would stay here again if given the opportunity. I cannot say enough good things about our visit, our dealings with both the owner and rental agent. Highly recommended!

Great apartment in fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed at this apartment for 3 nights before heading to Venice. The apartment was very well kept and clean and the grounds and pool were fantastic. We found the location to be an excellent base for exploring Tuscany with easy trips to Cortona, Montepulciano, San Gimigano and Sienna (we visited Florence before heading to the apartment).

Francesca was very helpful and on hand if you needed anything (We locked ourselves out of the apartment one afternoon).

We would recommend this apartment and would stay here again.

Merveilleuses vacances

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement Chiarino correspondait tout à fait à l'annonce que nous avions vue sur abritel. D’une propreté exemplaire et très bien équipé. Francesca la responsable sur place est très gentille et d'une efficacité remarquable.

Elle est de bon conseil. Nous sommes tellement contents de notre séjour que nous avons déjà réservé pour l'année prochaine.

Jeannine et Georges.

Richtig entschieden!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zu fünft mit Hund die Wohnung Il Vingone gemietet. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber. Die komplette Einrichtung, auch im Garten, hat funktioniert und alles war sehr gut gepflegt. An jedem Fenster waren fest installierte Fliegengitter, sodass lästige Schnaken oder Mücken nicht in die Wohnung kamen. Jeden Morgen hat die Hausverwalterin den Pool sauber gemacht und die Wasserqualität geprüft. Sie war immer ansprechbar, wenn Fragen zur Umgebung , zu Veranstaltungen bestanden. Besonders hervorzuheben ist die Einladung für alle Gäste zu einem exzellenten Original toskanischem Abendessen.

Das Haus liegt etwas außerhalb des Dorfes, was für Hundebesitzer sehr gut ist.

Die wichtigen regionalen Sehenswürdigkeiten (Siena, Arezzo, usw.) sind alle bis in ca. 1,5 Stunden zu erreichen.
