Very quiet apartment in the middle of nature, one mile from beautiful Cortona and perfect to reach all main Tuscan and Umbrian sightseeings!
Perfect for 2, can host max 4 guests, with kitchen corner and wood fired oven!
For nature and relax lovers!

The space

Our lovely house is located one mile from the splendid historical towncenter of CORTONA, not far from Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza and Perugia, all about an hour from here by car, and only 20 minutes away from here, the Trasimeno Lake, the biggest lake of central Italy...

A little, narrow, white bumpy country road (only partially asphalted and requiring a certain driving skill and adventurousness) will lead you in the magic mysthical athmosphere of our location (5 minutes by car, 30 minutes on foot)...you will leave the towncenter to jump into a magic world...

The apartment is at the ground floor of a two floors ancient farmhouse and is componed by: bedroom with double bed, living room with kitchen corner, sofa and a single bed (in case we can add a second single bed) and a large, comfortable bathroom with shower and tub.
The house in on the slope of a hill, in a magnificent position, with a splendid view.
The garden is at your complete disposal with the ancient stone wood fired oven waiting for you...
The apartment is perfect for a couple but can comfortably host up to 4 people, for instance a couple with 2 children...
If you're looking for a magic, nice, peaceful and relaxing place to stay, you can't miss visiting us!
This is the perfect place for painters, poets, writers, musicians, singers and if your artistic side hasn't appeared yet, here it will jump out!
All around the house, wonderful walks through the countryside, following SAINT FRANCIS of Assisi's footsteps, that loved to come and hide from the crowds in the mountain behind our house and rest at "LE CELLE" the very famous (not to miss!!!) convent not far away from us...
We can organize for you:
- HORSERIDES (for absolute beginners as well as for superprofessionals), from one hour to 5 days!
-WINE AND OLIVEOIL TASTING ( friends of ours produce them totally biologically and are ready to share their knowledge with us!!!)
-BYCICLE RIDES, since down in the valley VALDICHIANA there is a 62 kms route, crossing the valley and following the bed of the canal Chiana available for a relaxing family ride
...and if you like wild herbs and nature, our hill is waiting for you!
And pets are more than welcome here!!!
P.S. We're in the heart of nature but our wifi connection is...a bomb!!!

Natascia and Luca's house is tucked away in the hills in Cortona. It was the perfect location for us. Cortona is pretty touristy, and their house was a 20 minute peaceful walk from the city center. Easy to get to town, but easy to escape from the hustle and bustle, too. Natascia is a tour guide and therefore has great suggestions for what to do. We especially loved the horseback riding and olive oil and wine tasting tour she set up. She went above and beyond and came home from work just to do our laundry. I highly recommend! Thanks, Nat and Luca!

This farmhouse is everything that was promised...rustic, private with a beautiful renovation and setting. The kitchen and bath were well-equipped and the garden was lovely and restful. Natascia and her family were welcoming and kind, and made our stay quite nice. We enjoyed spending our days exploring Cortona and the surrounding countryside. Beautiful place.

Natascia and Luca (also Veronica) were wonderful hosts and we totally enjoyed meeting them. The apartment is completely independent so you can be as isolated as you wish, but they are accessible any time. The descriptions don't adequately describe the beauty and peacefulness of this place. It is extremely easy to get into Cortona, which we also enjoyed a lot, particular the less touristy parts up the hill. Yet, it feels like a separate and disconnected place. The road to it will be an experience for those who aren't used to country lanes, and every time we travelled it I marveled at the views and the way it suddenly becomes the country. The apartment is charming, roomy and was recently redone with very good workmanship. The kitchen is well equipped and worked well for meals. The table on the patio outside was a great place for breakfast. It was nice to come back to after a full day in the Brunello wine country.

First of all, you will never find kinder or more helpful hosts than Luca and Natascia. My husband and I felt well-taken care of. Their wonderful farmhouse is pleasantly and just the right amount isolated from the sometimes busy-ness of Cortona (a great Tuscan town to visit). It met all our expectations. Because the road to their house can be a little rough at times, we decided to keep our car parked (free) at a church nearby and walked back and forth to the house. The walk was always beautiful and we came to actually love it. A great time in Tuscany!!

Natascia and her family were beyond generous and warm hosts to us! Our stay in Cortona and as their guests will be highlights of our Italy trip. The farmhouse accommodations were better than expected, and the location was ideal for us -- it is a scenic five-minute drive to the town of Cortona, and it was exactly the type of peaceful and quiet place we were looking for after staying in a couple busy and touristy Italian cities. Natascia and her family were happy to suggest places to visit and restaurants to eat at, and even went out of their way to have us follow their car to get to a more difficult local destination for one evening. They made our trip even more memorable, and we are so grateful for their hospitality!

I felt so at home and welcomed at Natascia & Luca's beautiful home in the countryside! I cannot imagine a more lovely stay for us....friendly family to make us feel welcome in everyway and such a charming apartment. I wanted to stay forever. I recommend this place highly in the risk that it may not be available when I want to return! I'm already thinking to next (URL HIDDEN) idyllic!

Our host was out of town for work but we were met by her husband whom was very helpful. He was able to provide directions to places, and offered to show us some bicycle routes. The place was more charming than expected.
