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.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic 2 weeks here. We visited the area last year but stayed in an area that was quite isolated. Out stay here was perfect. Camucia is a short walk away, about 10 mins to the shops, bars and restaurants. It'/ also possible to walk up the steep hill to Cortona, takes about 40mins and gets the heart pumping! It's an easy 10 min walk to the railway station in Camucia which we used a couple of times for trips to Florence etc.

The apartments had everything we needed for our holiday, plenty of crockery, cutlery etc and Mr Rodolfo kindly loaned us a fan for the warmer evenings. We had a great time, would definitely recommend.

ruhig gelegen und empfehlenswert

  • 5 of 5

Sehr gepflegte Wohnung und Anlage. Ruhig gelegen, aber doch in der Nähe diverser sehenswerter landschaften und Städten. Wohnung und Ausstattung sauber und in Ordnung. Kleine Einkaufsmöglichkeit im Ort. Größere dann in der Nähe (Ortsrand von Cortona). Hervorzuheben ist der wunderschöne gepflegte Garten und Pool, die beide von einer netten jungen Dame betreut werden und die sich um alles kümmert. Sehr zu Empfehlen

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. Its location makes the apartment the ideal base for trips to some of the most famous towns of central Italy such as Florence, Arezzo, Siena, Assisi and Perugia. The medieval hilltop towns of Montepulciano, Montalcini, Pienza, Rapolano and Bagno Vignoni can also all be visited on a day trip.

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. Camucia with its station, shops, restaurants and bars is 2 km away or 20-30 minutes on foot. 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.

Lake Trasimeno with its numerous sporting facilities and restaurants is very close.

Beautiful walks, golf and horse-riding are all in the vicinity.

I have other holiday rentals with pool in Tuscany, both in the countryside and in the historic centres of Cortona and Siena - please contact me for details at:
