Villa La Foca

Villa La Foca is a traditional, stone-walled farmhouse, situated in a small hamlet with just two other houses, each with their own private pool. For shops and restaurants, you can walk to the nearest village (2kms), where there is a supermarket and a few other shops, or drive to Cortona (5kms).

The pretty garden has lawns, flower-filled terracotta pots and plenty of shady spots including those created by a wrought-iron pergola and a separate covered area, with sofas and a coffee table, perfectly positioned for the best views over the Chiana valley. Another furnished patio overlooks the pool area which is surrounded by shrubs, palms and sweet-scented rosemary and enclosed by a row of towering cypress trees. Other facilities include a barbecue and wood-burning oven and pool shower.

You enter the villa directly into the living room, a warm and welcoming room with terracotta floors, a beamed ceiling and attractive brick fireplace. The villa has an attractive kitchen, leading off from the living-room, with country-style painted cupboards and a small dining-table and chairs. There is also a microwave, oven and hob and large American-style fridge-freezer. The first of the double bedrooms, a spacious room with en suite bathroom, is on the ground floor.

There are two more double bedrooms, each with a private bathroom, on the first floor and the master bedroom, with private bathroom, is in the attic. Should you need extra accommodation, two beds can be put in the basement which has its own bathroom and small kitchenette.


Location

The villa is approximately 2kms to the nearest village and 5kms from Cortona, a hill-top town criss-crossed with cobbled lanes and packed with art treasures and good ‘trattorie’ in equal measure.

Montepulciano, Perugia and Arezzo are a short drive away while Siena, Assisi and Florence are a little further. The landscape is quintessential Tuscany, rivalled by neighbouring Umbria where the panoramas are every bit as beautiful with olive groves, vineyards and cypress-topped hills dotted with charming hill-top towns that are often quieter than their Tuscan counterparts.

Lake Trasimeno is to the south of the villa. The historic lakeside town of Passignano, is a good place for some lake swimming or a leisurely seafood lunch while Castiglione, on the south-western shore of the lake, is a lovely walled medieval town with Etruscan and Roman origins.
