About the owner: A cosmopolitan couple wit a passion for collecting antiques and curiosand a great love of nature and gardens.
Why the Owner Chose Cortona, Arezzo, Italy:
We bought the house when we were quite young and, after restoring it, we kept adding our finds from antiques markets, travel memories... We have been building up the garden for many years and it has now reached a mature, luxuriant stage. It is a very personal and interesting property.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
After visiting several properties in the region, we were instantly taken by this house, its strong architecture, the beauty of the pristine landscape, quite open and sunny, stunning even in the winter light.
