Villa Verde

This is a superb family villa, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a lovely pool area and its own private garden. Its location is equally special, close enough to Cortona to be able to wander in for a morning cappuccino or evening ice-cream and yet set in the midst of the most glorious rural landscape.

The villa is situated high on the hill with a view from the terrace over rolling hills and across the valley towards Lake Trasimeno. A reed-covered pergola with views over the countryside provides the perfect outdoor dining space, with a massive dark wooden table that can seat up to 12 people.

The private pool (8 x 3m), with its own special views, has a sunbathing area and a lawn nearby.

The décor is modern and bright, with strong splashes of colour set against pale and neutral tones.

The main living space, a large open plan living area with kitchen, sits alongside a double bedroom and a bathroom (with shower) on the upper level of the house and leads directly out to the patio, lawn and pool. The second double bedroom (can be converted to a twin), with its en suite bathroom (bath and shower), is on the lower level alongside a cantina which houses the laundry and storage area.


Location

Villa Verde is within walking distance of the centre of Cortona, a charming hill-top town enclosed by stone walls, with a strong gastronomic heritage and a good choice of restaurants offering traditional local and Tuscan cuisine.

Arezzo and Siena are both approximately a 40-minute drive and Florence a little further. The landscape is quintessential Tuscany but neighbouring Umbria’s landscape is every bit as beautiful with olive groves, vineyards and cypress-topped hills dotted with historical hill-top towns which are perhaps more intimate than their hard-hitting Tuscan sisters of Siena and Florence.

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 airport (65 km) or Pisa (170 km)
