Private villa + pool close to Cortona excellent base for touring Tuscany

Characteristic farmhouse immersed in large private gardens, situated at the foot of the ancient town of Cortona.

The Cortonese hillside, La Fortezza and the ancient wall which encloses the town, dominate the view of the surrounding hillside. Guests have exclusive use of the delightful 12 x 6 swimming pool, with Roman steps, which lies in an extremely panoramic position and from where you can enjoy the view in complete relaxation.

A great house, garden and pool for big families!

  • 5 of 5

We, a Swedish Group of 8 adults and two children 10 and 3 years old, arrived on schedule and was greeted by the owner of the property - indeed a very warm welcome! The guided tour through the villa, garden and finally the pool made us all very pleased. If you think it looks good on the photos - it is even better in reality. The house was clean and well equipped in all aspects including bed linnen and towels. All appliances worked well and the garden with the large pool really made the week for us all. There was a lot of toys that please both Children. We came by cars and did vist Cortona several times and of course also the other villages nearby. So, to conclude we can really recommend the villa La Poventa. P.S. We should have booked two weeks.

Great villa in a lovely neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

We are three generations, 3 families spending holiday in La Poventa.

We enjoyed our holidays a lot. The house is sufficient for ten people to live comfortably. The outside area is really charming with the wonderful swimming pool and adorable garden.

The owner of the house was really helpful, when our kid got ill. He helped us with the doctor who spoke no English a lot.

Emiliano, Thank you for your help ang great food we had the chance to eat in your restaurant. Recommend it a lot ( Cortona ).

The property is also very convieniently located if you wish to explore Tuscany and Umbria.

Lots of space for families

  • 4 of 5

My extended family of 9 stayed at La Poventa. It's a great place for large families with lots of space for everyone. The lovely stone walls kept the place cool despite 35-40C temperatures. The pool and outdoor eating area were fabulous as was the view of Cortona. We watched the sun set and moonrise every night. It is well situated for day trips in the area. A car is necessary. The owner was attentive and available to help with any issues we had. Only one complaint; it could have been a little cleaner.
