My home is rustic and elegant. The main guest bedroom is large and comfortable, with its own private entrance. The second bedroom is smaller and has one single bed and a crib. From May -October, you can enjoy the pool and views; throughout the year you can enjoy the olive grove, take walks in the surrounding hills, and relax. I have four friendly dogs, four chickens, and one cat. You should be willing to put up with their friendly antics. I produce my own olive oil and work from home.

The space
I have been living here for 8 years. Every day, sun or rain, I appreciate the view and surrounding beauty. There is a forest behind my house and trails for walking. Cortona is ten minutes away by car. There's a pizzeria within walking distance. Many wineries are nearby. The olive trees and terraced landscape make this a special place. You can work remotely and if you need to use the second bedroom as an office, that can be arranged.

Guest access
You have your own private entrance to the house. The main bedroom is large and sunny. There is a fan if it is warm outside and a duvet for the winter. Keeping the shutters closed during the day helps if it is very hot outside. There is a washing machine in your bathroom and an outdoor laundry line or indoor rack. The second bedroom has one single bed, a foldaway bed and a crib. You can use the kitchen, but please clean up completely after use. Cabinets in the kitchen are labeled to help you find things. I make homemade bread and yogurt and can also prepare meals if you're interested in that.

Other things to note
Guests have their own entrance, use of a private bathroom with shower, and basic use of a shared kitchen. If you need an additional bedroom or office space, this can be arranged. I only rent to one group at a time. This is my home and I work in my office during the day.

Location

Cortona, Toscana, Italy

This area is peaceful and quiet. We are situated at the end of a dirt road and surrounded by farms, vineyards and forests. There are only three other houses on the hillside and none close by so we have lots of privacy!

Hi! My name is Oonagh, I'm originally from New York but have lived in Italy for 30 years. If you decide to stay at my house, you'll be sure to have a great time. There's a beautiful pool, amazing views, lots of space, and a BBQ. Cortona is a great location: it's close to Arezzo, Perugia, Siena, Florence, and even Rome is only a day-trip away. If you need help with your itinerary I'd be happy to offer you advice, but if you prefer to be on your own, that's fine too! If you like wine, there are lots of fine wineries in the area and I know them all... My home is filled with books, art, and furnishings that mean alot to me. I hope you choose to come and stay!

During your stay
I am happy to help give you suggestions on where to eat, what to visit, and directions. During the day, I work in my office or outdoors and in the evening I water the garden, watch the news on tv, and talk on the phone to family. There's a pizzeria within walking distance but you will need a car to get around! I am happy to chat for a bit but will not be invasive. It's YOUR vacation, after all! Infant care is available for an additional fee.
