La Canonica is an attractive property at the bottom of the town of Cortona which is only four kilometres away. As its name suggests, it is the presbytery (“canonica”) of a small 11th century church that still forms the back part of the house. Restoration has given the house a particular charm showing the owners’ taste and cosmopolitan personality, easily spotted from the many international books which can be found in the house. Outside, a romantic pergola embraced by wistaria leads you to the pool. The whole property is fenced in and the presence of trees helps to ensure the clients’ privacy. There are four bedrooms with four bathrooms, so the house can comfortably welcome 8 people. The house is simply but functionally furnished and is suitable for a clientèle wishing to have a trouble-free holiday close to nature and history.
The Park and the pool: The garden is about one thousand five hundred square metres with a beautiful lawn. The gravelled area in front of the house has a dining table protected by the shade of an old cypress.
The pool is open from last Saturday of April to the first Saturday of October and measures 12,00 x 6,00m (39.4-19.7 ft) with a depth varying from 1,10 to 2,10 m (3.5-6.5 ft). It is surrounded by the lawn and has deckchairs, sunshades and shower.
