About this listing

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) 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!!!
Come and visit us!
We are waiting for you!!!

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.

This place is heaven and Natascia is wonderful. House is perfect for such big family like us 2 adults and 3 kids. And it's perfectly situated very close to Cortona but still in nice calm area. My doughters played with Veronica and we are really sorry that Natascia and her family must went to Rome. Natascia gave us really good advices where to go, buy and eat. That was ours best week ever.

Our stay was wonderful and very relaxing. Natascia and Lucca were very helpful in every case (with our car or for finding a doctor). The view from the terrace is gorgeous and the house perfectly located for visiting around. Cortona is a lovely place, alive but not crowdy. The food was excellent, especially at La Grotta, a restaurant recommanded by Natascia. Thanks a lot to you for making our holidays so good and thanks for the flowers for Odile's birthday :-) Odile & Dominique

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!!

We really enjoyed our stay here. Natascia's place was spacious, in a lovely quiet area and very convenient to go to many attractions both in Tuscany and Umbria. It has a lovely garden where my baby enjoyed running around. Natascia and her family was really helpful during our stay. Her husband picked us up from the station and gave us a lift to pick up our car, which was extremely kind and made us felt so welcome. Natascia kept good contact and offered us assistance during the whole stay. Overall, 5-star host!!! Definitely recommend this place.
