RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. The imposing shape of Villa Ivana is seen at the end of a tree-lined drive, set in a quiet centuries-old park and framed by the gentle landscape of the green hills of Cortona. An historic residence dating back to 1600, it has become, thanks to recent restoration, a prestigious villa in which modern accessories blend with original recycled materials and local architectural features conferring warmth and typical Tuscan atmosphere to the rooms. Antique furniture, precious tapestries, elegant windows and doors, original chandeliers and accessories, painted ceilings and splendid terracotta-tiled floors dress the more than 600 sq m of the villa. The ground floor is dominated by an imposing living room with decorated vaulted ceilings and frescoed walls, with an antique billiards table and a long dining table, next to which is the large fully-equipped modern kitchen. On the upper floors are the intimate, panoramic bedrooms, characterized by romantic four-poster beds and served by splendid cosy bathrooms in inlaid marble. Completing the programme for an unforgettable holiday in Tuscany are the many places of artistic interest within easy reach: art cities like Siena, Arezzo and Perugia and picturesque little towns (Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Castiglione del Lago, Radda and Gaiole in the Chianti area) as well as enchanting health spas. Services and shops for basic needs can be found in Riccio, Camucia and Cortona, all just a few minutes away by car. Thanks its large indoor and outdoor spaces, Villa Ivana is a perfect location for the organization of cultural events, reunion of groups and families and for weddings (being equipped with a private chapel) and other ceremonies, to spend in a prestigious and enchanting setting. Please note: The owners live discreetly in an annex about 50 m from the house and can be a useful reference point for guests to whom, however, full privacy is guaranteed.

The 1000 sq m area of Villa Ivana is spread over three floors connected by an internal sandstone staircase. On the ground floor the imposing front door leads into the entrance hall communicating, on the right, with a seating/TV room leading to the guest bathrooms and the stairwell and opening, on the left, into the imposing living room, a large open-plan area with columns that separate and connect the lounge area with sofa, the billiards area and, finally, the dining area; this latter communicates with the entrance to the modern professional kitchen equipped with a spacious central island and induction cooktop (and connected to the outside through a French window). The first floor opens onto an elegant living room which leads to the bedrooms on this floor: two double with ensuite bathroom, the first with tub and hydromassage shower and the second with shower and hydromassage tub; a suite composed of a living area leading to a double bedroom with bathroom with tub and to a twin loft bedroom (reached via a spiral staircase) served by a bathroom with shower. From the living room, continuing along the corridor are a further two double bedrooms with bathroom with shower (one ensuite) and one more double bedroom with divisible bed and private bathroom with shower. The second floor completes the sleeping area with two double bedrooms, served by a bathroom with shower and hydromassage tub and by a bathroom with shower (ensuite) with attached laundry room. Also on this floor is a luxurious living/lounge area. Please note that fireplaces are ornamental.
The completely fenced-in park that surrounds Villa Ivana covers a flat area of about 8000 sq m, most of which is planted with grass with a large variety of centuries-old plants and trees, pots of lemon trees around the villa and a lush row of oleander bushes that border the paved drive leading to the main entrance. The large gazebo surmounted by stone columns, located a few steps from the pool and from the many entrances to the villa, is furnished with tables and chairs for relaxing and dining outdoors, with the complicity of the silent garden embellished by the gentle setting of the Tuscan hills. At the entrance to the property, just after the main gate and the tree-lined access drive, is a large parking area.
The south-facing pool, with simple, essential lines, lies on one side of the villa, which is a few metres away, in the most panoramic part of the park. It is bordered by stone paving that after about one metre gives way to a large area of lawn equipped with sunbeds protected by large umbrellas. The rectangular pool, lined with PVC, measures 5 x 15 m with the depth varying between 1.40 and 1.80 m. It has chlorine purification, internal lighting, two ladders for access to the water, a hot and cold-water shower and is open from the last Saturday in April to the first Saturday of October.
