All of this in the comfort of your own private villa, which will make you feel heavenly, and right at home. 
 
The accommodation will be a beautiful villa located in the middle of an astonishing countryside. At the same time you will be just a short 15 minute drive from one of the most amazing hill towns of Italy, Cortona, that not by chance inspired the book "Under the Tuscan Sun". A spectacular view of the valley opens up from the front garden of the villa and will instantly give you a sense of peace and calm from the stress of everyday life.
 
The property dates back to the 18th century and was built in Tuscan stone and brick. It offers many comforts such as new modern bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, wi-fi, air conditioning, large private swimming pool and a spacious flourishing garden. The house has been restored with elegant taste, using natural colours such as white, grey, beige and light brown and with natural materials like Tuscan terra-cotta and parquet.
