These elegant and comfortable accommodations near Cortona are recommended for those who want to combine a relaxing holiday with the true lifestyle of a Tuscan family. Located on the hills of Cortona, the first written records of these buildings date back to the second half of the 18th Century when it was a farm producing extra-virgin olive oil, grain and the tobacco for the famous Tuscan cigars. The smaller building, now completely restored, was in fact once used for drying the tobacco leaves. Today, only the external walls and some parts of the interior remain of the original building, due to extensive restoration in the 1970’s.
The Bed & Breakfast consists of three comfortable double bedrooms furnished with antiques, each with private bathroom and a spectacular view over the surrounding medieval castles, villages and countryside. Guests also have full use of shared rooms such as the library, the sitting rooms and the dining room. Outdoors guests can enjoy the swimming pool, the park, the orchard with an amazing view of Cortona and a garden with a panorama drifting from Montepulciano to Sinalunga and Monte San Savino.
The buffet breakfast is very rich. On request dinner can be prepared with traditional Tuscan dishes and guests will all be seated around the same table like traditionally the large Tuscan families used to, and still, do.
These Tuscany vacation rentals are in an ideal location for those wishing to spend a quiet and pleasant vacation in the countryside and for those with cultural and art interests. In fact, Siena, Arezzo, Florence, Montepulciano, Pienza, Assisi and Perugia are easily accessible.
On request: cooking lessons, of one or more days, for a maximum of 4 people. On request and upon reservation: massages, aromatherapy, Reiki, etc. Also at your disposal for organizing excursions in the area.
