Overview

About the property

Set within 2.5 acres of private land, this magnificent 8 BR - 7 ½ BA Villa is nestled on top of a hill overlooking the wonderful Trasimeno Lake and is strategically located within a short distance from the lively town of Cortona as well as several other fabulous towns in Tuscany.

Surrounded by an exceptionally beautiful and well-designed garden, the villa is perfect to enjoy relaxing time with family & friends and caters to those who are ready to mix relaxation into the exploration of the most beautiful places in Tuscany & central Italy!

About the property.

After a complete renovation phase that lasted several years, where all of the original charm and architectural features were strictly maintained, the villa’s interiors have recently been meticulously upgraded to the highest standards.

The thorough attention to details, from the careful selection of the materials used, to the exquisitely appointed furniture and the selection of art hanging on the walls, has contributed into creating a truly unique space that perfectly blends with the villa’s original structure.

The villa is surrounded by 2.5 acres of the most beautiful Tuscan landscaping and features breathtaking unobstructed views on the Trasimeno Lake & its isles. The garden boasts several shaded areas and covered verandas (perfect for relaxing during the hot summer days or al fresco dining), a large private pool and a wood burning pizza oven, ideal for outdoors summer banquets.

The beautiful nature and lake can be enjoyed from almost every corner of the villa, from the living room’s front porch the water seems so close that it feels like it could almost be touched!...

Spreading over a surface of more than 5,400 square feet (500 sq.mt.), the villa offers its guests a unique blend of indoor and outdoor living, providing the perfect setting for a family reunion, a group of friends travelling together, or an anniversary celebration!

The cozy yet sophisticated and elegant atmosphere of the interiors, the breathtaking beauty of the villa’s garden & pool together with the fabulous views, make this property a truly unique gem perfect to hide away & relax, just steps away from the very best Cortona, the Trasimeno lake and its Tuscan surroundings have to offer…

Location details.

The villa is ideally located only about 10 miles away from the wonderful town of Cortona, one of the most fascinating villages in Tuscany, and about 2.5 miles away from Tuoro sul Trasimeno, an ancient Etruscan city on Lake Trasimeno (central Italy’s largest lake).

Some of the country’s most famous and beautiful destinations such as Florence (75 miles), Siena (42 miles) and Rome (124 miles) can all be easily reached either by car or by train.

About Cortona, the Tuscany region & Things to do in the area.

Cortona (10 miles away from the villa): recognized as one of the most fascinating villages of Tuscany, has incredibly managed to preserve its priceless heritage sites (various Palazzi, the Cathedral and the Diocesan Museum, where you can admire the beautiful Annunciation by Beato Angelico).

The city, enclosed by stone walls dating back to Etruscan and Roman times, sits on the top of a hill about 600 meters (1968 feet) above sea level, offering a spectacular view of the surrounding valley and Lake Trasimeno.

A visit to the beautiful Santa Margherita Sanctuary, patron of the city, and to the Girifalco Fortress should not be missed. Both are on the highest point on the hill and are easy to reach after a short, uphill walk.

There are many fabulous restaurants in the city, most offering traditional local and Tuscan cuisine (the Chianina cattle, one of Italy's oldest, high quality bovine breeds is bred in Valdichiana).

Arezzo (approximately 30 miles away): an extraordinary city of art renowned for its goldsmiths and antiques traders. The old town is home to valuable monuments including the imposing Medici Fortress, the Cathedral, the Diocesan Museum and the Basilica of San Domenico. The heart of the city is Piazza Grande, surrounded by buildings of various periods and styles - among them the Medieval towers and the Renaissance style Loggiato Vasariano. Not to be missed is their Antique market every first weekend of the month.

Val d’Orcia: About 20 miles away from the property (heading south-west) the beautiful Val d’Orcia region begins. This area of Tuscany boasts endless rolling hills covered with grain or sunflowers, a rich green valley and vineyards. It is no wonder that this territory, which stretches along the provinces of Siena and Grosseto, is protected as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Time seems to slow down for picturesque towns like Pienza, a real jewel known as the "Ideal City". On the west side of the valley are the walled medieval city of Montalcino (44 miles from the villa) and the vineyards of Brunello.

This region is very rich in high quality local products such as the "pecorino" cheese of Pienza (a typical cheese made with sheep's milk), the genuine olive oil, the gorgeous wine resulting from a long and ancient tradition.

Wine Paths: Great red wines are made in this area of Tuscany, Montepulciano and Montalcino are a must go for wine lovers. Montepulciano (which can be clearly seen from the villa’s garden and pool area) is only about 22 miles away and is distinguished from the many other historic “borgo” in Tuscany for its unique “underground” cantinas. Montalcino, already well-known for its fine red wines during the 15th century, has been made incredibly rich and famous by its Brunello wine, one of the world's best and most appreciated Italian wines.

The region also offers some of Italy’s finest thermal baths, such as the ones in Bagno Vignoni, Bagni di San Filippo, or Chianciano Terme.

Umbria Region

Perugia (abt. 21 miles away): with its Etruscan walls and gorgeous Medieval center, Perugia is not only a city for the gluttonous (re: chocolate), but for artists and art lovers alike. This splendid capital of the Region of Umbria is also a culture capital par excellence. Perugia also hosts renowned events, such as Eurochocolate and Umbria Jazz (mid July).

Gorgeous villa with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was truly magnificent! The views of the countryside along with views of the gorgeous lake were breathtaking… We were a group of 15 people and spent many of our days relaxing by the beautiful pool and dining al fresco each evening from the terrace, we also enjoyed delicious meals made by a local chef that was recommended by the owner. There’s even a brick pizza oven on the terrace, amazing! The place had plenty of room to accommodate our large group and the interior had a real rustic Italian feel to it, which I loved. When we decided to spend time away from the property (we never really wanted to leave) it was simple to travel to nearby cities such as the town of Cortona or Siena. I hope to come back soon!

Best of Central Italy

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a week at the Villa with our family of 5, and also hosted 5 other friends who came in from different parts of Europe. The house and property are fantastic to spend time with large groups of people. The furnishings are a nice combination of new and rustic. There is plenty of room to be together, or spend a few minutes alone. The swimming pool is refreshing during the hot summer days, and views at night from the balcony and front landing of the lake and stars are hard to beat. Dinner in the al fresco area on a few nights was a highlight as well, and one night we had home-made pizza by chefs who came to the property and cooked in the brick oven.

There are many day trips to do from this location, too many for one week. We chose Cortona, Siena, Assisi, Montepulciano, Pienza and the Lake Trasimeno area. All of these locations are within one hour's drive and wonderful to spend a day exploring the great food, architecture and history. The Villa is in a small town, so the Italian phrasebook came in handy when visiting local stores and restaurants, but this was a fun part of the adventure.

Highly recommended Villa for those who want a real central-Italy experience in a relaxed setting. Only wish we had booked a second week!

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 13, 8 adults and 5 children ages 12 to 18. The house was perfect, well equipped with modern appliances. Every room had shower stalls or shower over tub. Kitchen had two dishwashers. Pool was great. Excellent outside fireplace for grilling. Excellent location over looking a lake convenient to several historical cities

The villa is as in the photos.

The decoration is divine. Plates and cluttery perfect as well as other Kitchen ítems.

The villa is perfect for 16 people sleeping at the same time.

We spent a "perfect week" . Is so nice and spectacular that you loose interest in visiting places. You always want to stay in the swimming pool or the gallery

It was an awesome stay! Tjanls

Wonderful Tuscan experience, perfect villa!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful villa served as a home base for our family travels throughout Tuscany for a week and I must say that it has been perfect! The pool was wonderful for the children as were the villa’s bedrooms and overall amenities. Most appreciated were the views from the outdoor pergola and from the covered veranda… we spent hours and hours just looking at the lake and enjoying the magnificent sunsets! The grounds offered a truly relaxing atmosphere as well as fun activities such as playing in the pool all day and making our own pizza in the pizza oven in the evenings! What is better than eating a pizza prepared by your own kids?

We highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the wonderful town of Cortona, the Trasimeno lake as well as the most fabulous places in Tuscany! We will be back!!
