Self catering romantic dependence of an ancient Tuscan farmhouse for your holiday in Tuscany and Umbria. Semi Detached apartment, portion of the main house has its own garden area, and use of the shared swimming pool just a few hundred meters far. Perfect for 2/3 people is also suitable for 5 with use of the fold out bed or sofa beds in the living room for 2 extra peoples, with two full bathrooms.
The swimming pool is detached and about 500 m distance, shared with another house. We just restored the entire property so the garden will look young but still very large and nicely equipped with chairs, shades, and beach beds.
It has been restored with respect for the original stile and all teh furniture are antique, you will have a warm and relaxing feeling when you enter Il Moro Novo.
The house is located just outside a small country village, so it is not easy to reach and move from, still it is a quiet and relaxing place.

What a lovely place to relax and enjoy the quiet neighborhood and yet be close to Cortona. We stayed at "Casa Moro" for three nights and were very comfortable and happy. The weather was a bit cold and rainy, but it didn't stop us from investigating Cortona one day. And one day we took a short train ride to neighboring Arezzo to walk the famous monthly Antique Outdoor Market. What a treat! The house has two very large and beautiful bathrooms. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to make your meals. We bought a few things at the market that is within walking distance and then later went to one of the many groceries/markets that are very close. And there are excellent restaurants and eating places nearby. We had a very special meal one night with Michele's (owner) mother and sister. They cooked for us a traditional Umbrian meal. Lots of dishes, hefty servings, good wine and a delicious dessert - in a beautiful place just a few minutes walk from the house. It was a very special evening. The bedroom was large and the bed was comfortable . . . we slept well. We took lots of walks and enjoyed the scenic area. We were just sad that the fireplace wasn't working . . . but Michele helped us figure out the heating and we were very warm and comfortable. Michele was a perfect host and made sure we had everything we needed. He sent us very detailed instructions on how to reach the property. Following the directions, we arrived with no problems. And he gave us a detailed map of the area, along with restaurant recommendations, which made things very easy for us. We definitely would like to return to "Casa" - perfectly spacious for us and we love the area. Perfect location to either relax in the house or beautiful garden or to use as a home-base to explore the area.
Il Moro Novo is a beautiful property set in the stunning Tuscan countryside. If peace and relaxation is what you are looking for this is the property for you.Il Moro Novo contains all the facilities needed for a pleasurable stay. It has a spacious and well equipped kitchen/living room, large bedroom and two bathrooms. All of the above are clean and well maintained. You can be very much self-sufficent as a grocery shop is within walking distance to provide you with all necessary purchases both food and otherwise. There is also a family restaurant and cookery school down the road where you can experience the Tuscan way of cooking. This is run by Michele's family and is very much a beautiful place to spend some time. Michele, the owner of Il Moro Novo, is most accommodating and friendly always. He provided us with bicycles for hire and was always willing to answer any questions we had about our explorations of the Tuscan countryside. Michele, however, also gave us great space and freedom to enjoy the propery and its surroundings. We would definitely recommend this property to our family and friends as Il Moro Novo is such a beautiful place to stay and relax away from the stresses and strains of everyday life. A place to wind down and really experience the Italian way of life.
Many thanks to Michele and all his family.
