    The view from here is - "just stunning but wait until you see the pool..." ... Villa is - "simply beautiful " Two comments form guests in August 2016 Villa is for sure, a really special property for both friends and families to enjoy. Tucked away on the sleepy hillside of Castiglion Fiorentino and where guests can make this their "home from home" - The property welcomed its first guests in May 2016, - The villa is set within an olive grove where the visible ruins of an ancient defence castle of Castiglion Fiorentino can be explored and enjoyed. Adjacent to the larger villa is a (deconsecrated) church from the 12th century which has also being restored. The Villa and its annex provide three bedrooms, three bathrooms, modern kitchens, 2 sitting rooms, a vast terrace with some of the loveliest views of the valley and the town of Castiglion along with the private Infinity Edge pool - strategically situated to enjoy the fabulous views. It is about 3 km from the town, where there are many restaurants, bars and shops and, there is also small shop,bar and restaurant just across the valley if you did not want to travel into the town, Much like the other villas here, this is also a good location - an excellent base to explore Tuscany its many hill towns, festivals, wineries and countryside including easy easy day trips to Cortona, Pienza, Montepulciano, Siena etc - Florence is also easy by either car (1 hour) or by train from our local station. This is one of our first reviews from May 2016. A first review says: “The houses are surrounded by a beautiful old olive grove. There are two terraces overlooking the valley and a very nice infinity swimming pool. The view is breathtaking. I have been in this valley before but the view here beats everything. There is a small terrace in the back to catch the early morning sun. The large (Giant) terraces in the front catch the sun from 10 am to sunset. For people like me who love to read in the shade : plenty of shade available under the surrounding trees. The olive groves around the houses are actually grassy meadows, ideal for children's play. In the woods on top of the hill behind the house lie the remains of a 13 th century castle. You have to drive up a drivable access road from the valley floor to reach this house. The next and only other house is 100 m down. The road continues up the hill for another 1.6 km, winding through beautiful olive groves and forests, offering breathtaking views. Then then for easy hiking, road changes into a hiking trail that joins the hiking trail that circumvent the valley. We were the first occupants in a newly developed property. We were two couples and stayed a week in May 2016. The property consist of two houses. The smaller one , just a few meters away, has one bedroom, with a king size bed, bathroom and a living space with kitchen. Tho main house has two bedrooms, with king size bed and the other with two single beds. The main house has two bathrooms. A dining room, sitting room and separate kitchen. Hendrik, NL. Also in the area are tennis courts, horse riding and , now the new Golf Course at Cortona -

    This farmhouse was built in the 1600's and has been tastefully restored keeping all original details. Total privacy, addit. Services upon request Property divided in main farmhouse (sleeps 8, 3 baths) and two separate mini apartments (sleep 3 with 1 bath each), which allows for more privacy or easily splitting the house in two or three parts. In the main house, three of the four bedrooms are situated on the upper floor, the 4th bedroom is a small bedroom with two single beds, off the living room: the perfect spot for somebody who is not comfortable in climbing stairs or to have small children at reach. The living room has plenty of seating around the large fireplace, uncork some wine and - trust us - that is a good story telling space. The dining room table sits 14 and the kitchen makes you want to try your hands at making bread or rolling out some fresh pasta. Terra-cotta floors throughout the house, an open stone staircase, tiled bathrooms, a waterfall tub, exposed beams on every ceiling and dreamy views from every window. As soon as you step inside you will appreciate the care and heart that went into renovating this great property, careful to add high comfort, while keeping that wonderful Tuscan feel. The two apartments contain own kitchen corner, a bathroom, a large bedroom and a private or common terrace (depending on which of the two apartment).Located just outside the house, a few stone steps to a dining terrace overlooking the 6x12 meter pool and the beautiful valley below. The stone decking around the pool allows for plenty of sunning space as well as some shady areas so you can still be part of the pool atmosphere without tanning too much. A true paradise which makes you just want to lay there all day, stare across the valley and do absolutely nothing. The rustic-style house features a terrace, a pizza oven, an outdoor BBQ and a covered terrace with darts board, where you can have your morning coffee, looking down the lake. The kitchen includes a dishwasher. Our driveway is approximately 1.3 kilometers in length from the main road to Priello. Paved in bits and gravel in others it's a fun road you will learn to love. The road winds up to two farms, woods, over a little waterfall, past our neighbors around a corner, past hayfields and right when you think "is this the right road?" you will see our classic cypress lined drive and you have arrived. It is less than a mile to the main road but it seems a world away with peace and quiet you can only dream of. This part of the Tiber Valley is right in the middle of the Italian peninsula; in Tuscany, but borders on the counties of Umbria, Marche and Romagna, regions with varied characters which at different times have influenced its history, culture and landscape leaving marks which can still be felt today. It is an area which is between the Tyrrhenian and Adriatic seas. It has a complex story, as it is not only the valley where the river Tiber has its source, a river which has shaped the fertile plain for thousands of years; but it is also mountainous. Actually it is more mountainous than flat, but even in this case it is impossible to give a unanimous definition to the hills and mountains of this area.

Cortona News and Events

http://www.cortona.com

Cortona is a small but fascinating city in the province of Arezzo, Tuscany, central Italy, situated on a commanding hill, and overlooking Lake Trasimeno. Its cyclopean walls reveal its Etruscan origins. It was one of the twelve cities of Etruria and in its vicinity many Etruscan ruins and tombs may be seen. Cortona sided against Rome until 310 B.C. when Fabius Rullianus defeated the Etruscans and took Perugia. Perugia, with other cities, including Cortona, then made peace with Rome. Later Cortona was destroyed by the Lombards but was soon rebuilt. In the 14 C, it was governed by the Casali and afterwards became part of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany.

Sights & Attractions

Museo Diocesano: Little is left of the original Romanesque character of Cortona's duomo , which is situated northwest of Piazza Signorelli and has been rebuilt several times in a less-than-felicitous fashion. Fortunately, its wonderful artworks have been saved and are on display in this museum, which occupies the former church of the Gesù on the opposite side of the piazza.

Room 1 features a remarkable Roman sarcophagus decorated with a frenzied battle scene between Dionysus and the Amazons, but the real treasures are in Room 3. These include a moving Crucifixion (1320) by Pietro Lorenzetti and two beautiful works by Fra' Angelico: Annunciation (1436) and Madonna with Child and Saints (1436–7).

Museo dell'Accademia Etrusca: The rather plain facade of the 13th-century Palazzo Casali was added to the original building in the 17th century. Inside, this fascinating museum displays substantial local Etruscan and Roman finds, Renaissance globes, 18th-century decorative arts and contemporary paintings. The Etruscan collection is the highlight, particularly those objects excavated from the tombs at Sodo, just outside town.

Eremo Le Celle: This Franciscan hermitage is set amid dense woodland 3km north of Cortona. Its buildings sit next to a picturesque stream with an 18th-century stone bridge, and the only sounds to disturb the tranquil atmosphere are the bells that call the resident friars to vespers and mass in the cave-like Chiesa Cella di San Francesco.

Festivals & Events of Cortona, Italy
Giostra dell'Archidado (June)
A crossbow competition held in late May or early June usually on the Sunday of Pentecost (Whitsunday). The contest is held in Piazza Signorelli.

Lonely Planet - Cortona
With a layout indicative of someone spilling a bucket of 'Etruscan town' down a hillside, rooms with a view are the rule, not the exception in Cortona. In the late 14th century Fra Angelico lived and worked here, and fellow artists Luca Signorelli (1450–1523) and Pietro da Cortona (1596–1669) were both born within the walls.

Large chunks of Under the Tuscan Sun, the soap-in-the-sun film of the book by Frances Mayes, were shot in Cortona. (You'll look in vain, though, for the fountain in which the eccentric Englishwoman cavorts; it was built specially for filming and is now dry.)
