Villa Teresa, Cortona

This is the ultimate villa retreat, a traditional Tuscan country house that has been refurbished in a way that retains many of its beautiful original features, yet still offers all mod cons, with a spectacular garden and a view to match.

The focal point of the large garden is the pool (10x5m), with walk in steps at one end and surrounded by sun beds and large lawns punctuated by olive and cypress trees and fringed with shrubs and flowers. An attractive shady gazebo, draped in swathes of white fabric, overlooks the pool at the far end.

A sizeable terrace, on a raised level and with fantastic views across the Tuscan/Umbrian countryside, is the perfect place for leisurely ‘al fresco’ meals under the shade of a covered pergola. There is another smaller outdoor eating area and barbecue in the lower part of the garden in addition to a small children’s play area, a wooden chalet that houses the laundry room and a garage.

Despite being home to some magnificent antiques and original features, the interior of the house feels incredibly welcoming. Warm Tuscan terracotta flooring extends throughout the house and the colours of walls of different rooms flit between a bright Etruscan red in the sitting room to a sunny yellow dining room and to shades of pink, orange and gold in the bedrooms. The sitting room has a very attractive 19th century Liberty-style fireplace and two sofas which can be used as sofa-beds if required, with a doorway leading through to the dining-room, again with antique furniture and an original fireplace. The kitchen has a very rustic feel, with hand-painted Cortonese ceramic tiles and all mod cons including a hob with five burners, microwave, dishwasher, oven and fridge/freezer. There is also a toilet on this floor.

A staircase leads to the two bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor. The master bedroom has views over the pool and surrounding wood and is beautifully furnished with antique mirrors and a headboard that dates back to the 18th century while the second bedroom has two single beds and is more modern in style. The two rooms share a bathroom. 

On the ground floor, there are four more bedrooms, all having its private entrance and direct access to the garden. One large double bedroom featuring also a sofa-bed, a shower room and three other double bedrooms, all provided with en-suite shower-room.


Location

Guests have immediate access to the surrounding woodland and gentle rolling hills of the Tuscan/Umbrian countryside. The landscape is quintessential Tuscany but easily 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.

Nearby Cortona (5km), a medieval town enclosed by stone walls, has a strong gastronomic heritage and a good choice of restaurants offering traditional local and Tuscan cuisine. Arezzo and Siena are both within an hour’s drive while Florence is a little further.

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

Getting there: Perugia (60 km) or Pisa airport (180 km)
