Farmhouse -
4 Bedrooms , 6 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Cortona, Province of Arezzo, Tuscany
Our home is located 6 miles outside of Cortona, on the Tuscan/Umbrian border, near Lake Trasimeno. The house dates back to the 1700s and was originally a farmhouse. It is set a third of the way up the hill, below a forest and we have over a hundred acres in which you can roam. The house has 4 bedrooms: 2 double bedrooms and 2 with 2 single beds, 3 bathrooms, 2 living rooms, a dining room and a portico (outside, covered eating space). There is a large 12m pool with poolhouse, overlooking splendid views of Cortona. My parents bought and restored the ruined property in 1970 and it has been a family home for 40 years. It would suit families with children or adults wishing to get away from it all and yet be able to dip into the vast amount of culture around.

About the neighbourhood
This is a region full of history, right next to the hill where Hannibal and the Carthiginians fought the Romans and the waters of Lake Trasimeno were stained red with the blood of the dead. The house overlooks Cortona, one of 5 important Etruscan cities and later an important medieval town under the rule of the Medici and the Casali families. It is an area renowned for its art, its wine and its olive oil. There is plenty to see and do for all age groups, whether it is sight-seeing, wine tasting, using the lake and hills to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Or simply to be quiet and read under the Tuscan Sun.
