This is a charming property set on a terraced hillside straddling the Tuscan-Umbrian border, minutes from the beautiful walled city of Cortona. The old house has been restored and converted into a very spacious three-bedroom home with a well-equipped kitchen and modern ensuite bathrooms, and furnished with a blend of Italian and English antiques. A well kept garden surrounds the house and leads down to the swimming pool on a lawned terrace facing the valley. A second terrace is fitted with a large loggia for al fresco dining. Legend has it that Cortona was founded by Dardanus, who later went on to establish Troy. True or not, the area was already inhabited and under cultivation when the Etruscans arrived in the 8th century BC.
Max Occupancy: 6
