About the Property

5 large bedrooms,4 bathrooms ,2 large living-room,1 large dining-room

This charming Tuscan Farmhouse is set in a lovely, unspoilt region near the Etruscan hill town of Cortona, amongst olive groves and sunflower fields. Casa Il Campo has 2 acres of unfenced land including its own private vineyard, two terraces and plenty of shaded seating areas and a 12m x 6m swimming pool with salt water and refurbished in 2013 . This large farmhouse has been restored to a very high standard using traditional materials to maintain authenticity and atmosphere, though with modern kitchen equipment and bathroom facilities. There are five spacious bedrooms and four bathrooms. The two large living rooms (one on each floor) each have their own fireplace. The kitchen opens onto a romantic jasmine-covered pergola ideal for al fresco dining. The house has central heating making it suitable for winter rentals. This is a perfect base to explore Tuscany and Umbria's greatest treasures or simply settle down to the pace of rural life.Each bedroom has been given the name of an artist who has had a strong connection with Cortona, from Luca Signorelli, Fra Angelico, Vasari and Severini to Pietro da Cortona. Every room enjoys unspoilt and serene views on the tuscan countryside as shown in the pictures on this website . The house is ideal for families with children of all ages also because the pool is fenced .



A Family Home: The home flows from a large live-in kitchen. From here you step out onto the jasmine-covered pergola and the herb and rose garden. Guests are welcome to help themselves to the seasonal abundance which usually includes sage, basil, thyme, rosemary and parsley and to the fruit from the orchard in the lower garden, beyond the lavender hedge (apples, pears, apricots, figs and hazelnuts). The kitchen is fully equipped for those who love cooking. The hob has 4 gas and 2 electric rings as well as a large oven. The kitchen comes with a dishwasher, toaster, microwave and large fridge/freezer. From the kitchen you proceed to the formal dining room with a long table seating 12. Walk through the arch and you are in the sitting room with its large fire place. The second sitting room and four of the five bedrooms are on the first floor which you reach via an internal staircase equipped with child gates at the top and bottom.

Upstairs: The four bedrooms upstairs radiate from a large family sitting room with two sofas and armchairs. This sitting room opens onto a small balcony. In winter the fire place comes into its own.

Winter Rentals: The house has full central heating and two large fire places. It is therefore suitable for the colder but no less beautiful winter months.

Owner info

About the owner: I now live in Europe but together with my family I spent few years in Asia and in United States. My family and I love Tuscany and have been there every year since 30 years . We have friends in Cortona area .

Why the Owner Chose Cortona, Arezzo, Italy:
We always dreamed to find a house there and fell immediately in love with Casa Al Campo because it entails all we love about Tuscany. Besides the charm and character of the well restored farm we really enjoyed its location : man made landscape combined with unspoilt nature ,medieval and renaissance art of Tuscany and Umbria all around, traces of history everywhere. It starts from the estrucans defense walls of Cortona to the battle field of Hannibal against the romans (in 217BC) and culminates with the well preserved town of Cortona with its proud and welcoming inhabitants.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The place is timeless and serene .
