Cortona Tuscan Villa with pool – an aristocratic 19th century villa occupying a large estate abundant with chestnut woods and olive groves, within walking distance of the medieval walled town of Cortona, jewel of Valdichiana. The main villa and the independent annex have been carefully refurbished in order to preserve the original features of the buildings. All the spacious rooms have a warm feel created by the terracotta floorings, wooden beamed ceilings and period furniture. Through the numerous large windows, guests can enjoy stunning views over the surrounding valley and the cypress and chestnut forests of the Appennine mountains. Both properties, each with their own independent entrance and access to the garden, sit in an elevated position, with the grounds gently sloping towards the pool, a true haven of beauty and tranquillity, yet only a stroll from Cortona, one of the oldest and best preserved walled cities in Tuscany. Here you can take a walk along the winding roads and the typical ladder-like alleys, sampling local produce and Tuscan delicacies from the market and gastronomic shops, before setting off to discover Cortona's artistic treasures. Taste ‘Vino Nobile’ in Montepulciano, only 18 miles from your villa, and then spend some time at the exclusive Spa in Chianciano Terme, to pamper yourself in the healthy spring waters of this ancient Tuscan countryside town, and your stay at Villa Francesca will be truly unforgettable.
