Not far from the Etruscan town of Cortona, at the border between Tuscany and Umbria, we find this boutique hotel made up of a finely restored 18th-century manorial villa with several annexes. The property offers 1,057 sqm of livable surface for a total of 15 bedrooms and 18 bathrooms for the guests. The park, well-maintained and decorated with plants and flowers, houses a nice 18 × 9 m swimming pool.
Well-connected, the property is provided with all the necessary services by the nearby town of Cortona (5km; 10’) and allows reaching, in less than an hour and a half, the most renowned art cities of Tuscany and Umbria (Castiglion Fiorentino, Montepulciano, Pienza, Siena, Florence, Perugia).
Lake Trasimeno is just 16 km southbound and can be reached in less than 20’ by car. For shopping lovers, instead, the Valdichiana Outlet is just 23 km away, right at the A1 highway junction near Foiano della Chiana.
