Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Cegliolo - Torre degli Elci

Villa Torre degli Elci is set in the greens of the Tuscan countryside, midst olives and cypress trees and just 4 km from Cortona. The name of the Villa derives from the old sighting tower which has testimonials from 13th and 14th century and which became a monastery and then at the beginning of 19th century, a big country house. Set on the slopes of the hill, the Villa has a great view of Cortona and of the Chiana valley. The position is strategic, just 5 minutes away from Cortona but far from main roads and noise. The Villa is surrounded by a big park of holm trees and is fenced to assure our guests the most privacy and relax. The country house has an automatic gate.

Villa Torre degli Elci occupies a surface of more than 300 sqm on three floors and divided into a main building and two outbuildings, with the following characteristics:

The Villa

Ground floor: living room (TV-sat.) with fireplace and double davenport, bedroom with double bed, bathroom with shower.

1st floor: big living room and dining room with fireplace (TV.-sat., DVD), kitchen (oven, freezer, dishwasher, microwave), reading room, bedroom with double bed, bathroom with shower.

2nd floor: living room with panoramic view, 2 bedrooms of which one has a double bed and bathroom with shower. From that room you can access the attic through a steep wooden staircase where you have 2 single beds and bathroom with shower, suitable for children.

Outbuilding “The oven”

Ground floor: kitchen (oven, freezer, dishwasher) with dining area, toilet. It is possible to eat outside under a gazebo with table and benches from where you have a spectacular view of Cortona’s hill. Next to the kitchen you will find the old stone oven for delicious pizzas, to be eaten in good company.

Outbuilding “The Holms”

Ground floor: bedroom with two single beds (minibar), TV, bathroom with shower, laundry (washing machine, ironing board and iron)

Beautiful Cortona Villa and a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This villa in Cortona is beautiful, spacious and and has everything you need for a fabulous stay in Tuscany. It is spacious with a load of room for everyone, we came with another family and several children- plenty of space for everyone. Great kitchen that is separate with everything you need for cooking and your morning caffe! Valentina was very helpful with directions and other items that we needed to know about the area. The grounds of the property are beautiful and the villa itself is equipped with beautiful furniture and accommodations. I would recommend this property to anyone that loves Italy or your first time visiting this gorgeous country!
