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:
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.
