Villa Pietra Luminosa is a charming farmhouse on the hills to the east of Cortona, a mere 10-minute drive from the town. Â Every room offers a view that is purely Tuscan: the Valdichiana, Monte Amiata, and Monte Cetona, olive groves, and the neighboring 16thcentury monumental Villa Palazzone.
Villa Pietra Luminosa has been meticulously renovated recently. The materials were chosen without any compromise on quality, obtaining an absolutely unique result: hand made cotta tiles, antique beams, and old stones. Suppliers were carefully selected and many materials were recycled from local sources.
On the ground floor, there is a modern kitchen with white surfaces, a red kitchen island and marble worktops next to an old stone wood oven. Adjacent we find a luminous dining room, a spacious living room with a large stone fireplace and a service bathroom. The rest of the ground floor is composed of a further dining room with a kitchenette, the first bedroom, and a bathroom. This part of the ground floor is completely independent and can serve as a guest apartment.
The entrance hall features a marvelous ancient stone staircase set into the wall. On the first floor of Villa Pietra Luminosa, we find two large panoramic bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. There is a space with the wiring and plumbing already in place to be converted in a fourth bedroom with a bathroom. The color pallet of this floor is very light with parquet flooring, travertine in the bathrooms and high white ceilings, all adding to the sense of luminosity this farmhouse emits.
The property has air conditioning, an electric gate and during the renovation, ethernet wiring was placed in all the rooms.
The 4000m2 / 43055 sq ft park around the farmhouse is speckled with intimate spaces. There are two outside dining spaces and an outdoor kitchen with a barbeque and a wood-burning pizza oven.Â Three pergolas and a recessed fire pit area make for additional entertainment areas. The garden is varied and has 80 olive trees and an automatic irrigation system.
For refreshment, next to the farmhouse there is a terrace overlooking the panorama with a gracious salt-water swimming pool and a large characteristic fountain.Â
