Excellent 6 bedroom villa in Cortona that sleeps 12. This impressive, attractive stone villa is immersed in nature, commanding a breathtaking view of the Valdichiana. Its strategic position makes it a unique holiday-home for those who want to enjoy the beauty of the Tuscan landscape and also be close to the town (500 metres) without noise or traffic. Located only 500 metres (5 minutes on foot) from the Etruscan city walls of Cortona, this is the ideal location for relaxing and stress-free holidays.
Converted from a 17th century farmhouse and tastefully restored, this desirable holiday-home provides guests, thanks to its stunning panoramic location, its beautiful swimming-pool and its proximity to the town centre with an ideal spot for relaxing holidays in Tuscany. The complex consists of 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms for a total of 12 people.
The beautiful stone-building has retained notable 16th century features. Restoration work was completed in June 2007 and all furnishings were personally and carefully picked by the owner, as well as valuable genuine family antique pieces. The mansion served up to the 18th century as a post house known as the Locanda del Girifalco (as is witnessed by the old coat of arms depicting a gyrfalcon a bird of prey also known as Falco rusticolus), where wayfarers could spend a night under cover.
The property stands amidst a charming park that may be visited on foot and offers guests superb relaxing spots between olive-groves. The villa opens out through large French doors (all with insect screen) onto the front garden, where terracing and lawns unfold. The 4x8 meter swimming-pool specially reserved for our guests enjoyment is equipped with a salt electrolysis water-treatment system and sun shower.
The villa is spread over two floors.
The ground floor accommodates the living area with entrance, reading corner, large hall with living room and large open fireplace, fully-equipped live-in kitchen and toilet. In addition, on the ground floor and not connected internally to the rest of the villa, there are two double bedrooms, two bathrooms (one ensuite with shower and one with shower tub), a living room with dining area and stone fireplace and kitchenette.
