About the property

Luxury apartments on rental suitable from 2 to 6 people each 10 people in total.

Only a few kilometres from the ancient town of Cortona, hidden in the quiet and charming historical centre of Pierle, you will find a wonderful Tuscan Country House 'Rocca di Pierle'. The Villa has been beautifully restored and is a relaxing and comfortable residence with a unique atmosphere and impeccable service.

While waiting about your vacation in my Property, could read some reviews made by our guests in the last five years at the link below;

It is situated in a very quiet and calm hill, which dominates a Pierle Valley and is near a famous medieval Castle, close to Cortona town.

My new Tuscan old style house shared in 4 apartments (only 3 for rent) called 'La Loggia' (suitable for 2-3 people) 'Il Monte' (suitable for 4 people) 'La Valle' (suitable for 4-6 people), each of them is independent with the complete cooking furniture, a wooden table and chairs in the garden.

The Property, with a big garden of about 5000 square meters, is a relaxing and comfortable residence, where guests enjoy faultless service and an incomparable atmosphere in surroundings that are cared for in every detail.

The nearest restaurants, markets, bakery, butchers, banks, are about between 2 and 4 Km from Rocca di Pierle in Mercatale village; it could be a walking distance but I suggest you to rent a car in order to be more independent and discover the several places nearby.

As you can see on Google maps, my property is located in a strategic place where is easier to reach the most important southern Tuscan and northern Umbrian cities, such as Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza, Florence, Assisi, Perugia, Gubbio, Trasimeno Lake, etc..

During restructuring special attention was given to materials and most of the old furniture has been recovered, the rest of the rooms has been furnished in the typical Tuscan style, without forgetting the most modern accessories, such as satellite-TV, telephone with internet-access in all rooms. The household appliances are new and in perfect working order.

Since last summer 2015 is available the new Common room http://www.roccadipierle.com/english/cambusa.html

It is close to the apartments, suitable for meal service that we provide you on request (Continental Tuscan breakfast, special Tuscan lunch or dinner with several fresh product and real Tuscan tradition cooking), wine tasting, entertainment room with a big flat-TV, etc.

Most of the products prepared came from the Valley around my place (0 Km…), are biological and cooked with the ancient style of preparation.

The prices, depending of the number of course, are from about 29,00 euro each persons (3 courses: starters, first course and dessert) to about 39,00 euro (4 courses: starters, first course, second course and dessert).

Sometimes we organize for a group o minimum 4-6 people, a special “Fiorentina steak” dinner or lunch; it costs about 55,00 euro each persons.

Guests may also use the beautiful SWIMMING POOL located above the compound and from where one enjoys a magnificent view over the entire Val di Pierle is just one of the particular features of the Country House Rocca di Pierle. Thanks to the great skills of our craftsmen we succeeded in creating something extraordinary and typical. Every single stone used to build the pool was produced and smoothed by skilful craftsmen so as to achieve the most natural and exclusive result. The black tarpaulin that coats the pool gives the water a somewhat warm and mysterious effect.

Size: 7,5m maximum, 5 m minimum width, 14 m length. Depth varies between 0,50m and 1,80m.


The Villa has 3 apartments on rental in total, 'La Loggia', 'Il Monte' and 'La Valle'.


The 55 mq² La Loggia apartment is on the first floor and derives its name from a beautiful arcade protecting the entrance. From here one has a magnificent view on the immense castle. The Loggia is structured as follows: living room with a relaxing sofa, one double bedroom, fireplace, kitchen and bathroom.

We can prepare one or two extra-beds in the living room or in the bedroom, with an extra price.



'Il Monte' is in the building's upper store. From the windows of the 70 mq² apartment one has an unobstructed view on the wood covered hills surrounding the big castle.

The apartment features two double bed rooms, living room with two small seats, large-kitchen, fireplace, shower equipped bathroom and one outdoor terrace with a wooden roof in front of the garden.



La Valle' is on the ground floor and derives its name from the panoramic view in front of the entrance on the entire Pierle valley and the immense medieval castle. Also this apartment has a private entrance, two double bed room, bathroom, living room with sofa (one or two extra-single bed on request), a large kitchen, fireplace, bathroom and a private wooden table with chairs and sun umbrella in the garden.


SO ASK US THE PRICE FOR RESERVE ALL THE VILLA WITH THE EXCLUSIVE USE!!!! (the country-house may sleep 10 + 2 people, in 2 extra beds.)

About Andrea Luchini

I'm Andrea owner and manager of Rocca di Pierle villa (in the photos with my Father Stefano and 2 Australian guests).

I'm 40 years old and I love my job; my big satisfaction is to offer a fantastic holiday time to my guests at Rocca di Pierle.

Andrea Luchini purchased this farmhouse in 2004

Why Andrea Luchini chose Cortona area

My grand father built this house in 1970, in the end of 1999 my parents decided to restore in a typical Tuscan old style; they spends about 5 years to finish all the restoration so since 2005 my beautiful business started.

After the university I started the rental business with many marketing policies.

What makes this farmhouse unique

I'm always available in the property.

I have only 3 apartments for rent so my property is never to much busy and noisy.

Large outdoor space, about 5000 square meters of garden, large panoramic swimming pool, with only maximum 10 people is a guarantee for the high level of quality vacation in a real Tuscan landscape.

“A Hidden Gem!”

  • 5 of 5

Stayed a week in this luxury and very home-like house, and travelled by hundreds kms each day. All major attractions are in 2 hours reach by car. But you can see a lot of nice places just by driving 30 minutes around Cortona's region this house is a part of. Bellini's Bella Vita was filmed in Cortona. It's history goes to medieval ages, and you can witness a lot of remains. Besides there is great pecorino cheese, truffles, wines, olives, steaks and other delicious food on the way. And the panoramic view from Cortona or just from the bedroom in the house catch your breath! One warm night we sat in the garden and watched the stars with the sounds of nature. Very romantic place to stay at for vacation!

Our stay at Rocca di Pierle was memorable from beginning to end, I was amazed at the level of customer service, that the owner, provided for us during our stay. Everything was just perfect: the ideal location, the wonderful landscape, the super clean and comfortable fascilities and the warm hospitality. This was a great place for our vacations in Tuscany. Rocca di Pierle has very good location!

Elegant apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our family consisting of 2 parents and 3 children in their 20's stayed in the La Valle apartment for 4 nights in June 2010 when we were one third into a month of travel in Italy. We found this property to be exactly as pictured: classic Tuscan exterior, beautiful gardens and pool, private patio, elegant rooms. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. Prior to arriving, emails were answered promptly and details were thorough.

Our host, Andrea, was extremely gracious and professional. He offered to meet us when we became lost and, once finding our way with a correction, he was waiting for us at the turnoff to lead us in. He gave us a tour of the property and patiently showed us important features of the apartment. The first breakfast food provided (including homemade cake) was plentiful and delicious. We felt truly welcomed.

All of the rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable. Closets are extremely spacious. The kitchen is modern and well supplied and worked quite nicely for breakfast each morning and tea each night. Other meals could have been prepared there but we planned them for when we were off touring. Additional food was easy to find in nearby Mercatale and we found Cortona close enough to travel to for dinners. We found the location of the villa to have easy access to main roads for traveling to Tuscany and Umbria towns. Andrea was very helpful with directions to best reach our destinations. We regretted that we did not plan a full day to spend at the villa; the charming gardens and pool and view of the castle would be a relaxing Tuscan holiday on its own.

We would recommend this villa as a perfect place from which to conduct driving tours of Tuscany and Umbria or as a destination. We hope to return!
