Tuscany, Italy · Villa - Cortona area · 2 Bedrooms · 4 people

This very pretty small villa is situated in a beautiful area close to the picturesque walled hilltop town of Cortona on a large wine and olive oil producing estate. Founded by the Etruscans, Cortona was a major seat of power during medieval times. It cobblestone streets lead to the Medici fortress and the Santuario di Santa Margherita, its highest church, from where there are magnificent views over the countryside. Cortona has a large antique furniture market in August and September. More recently, it has become well known as the setting for Frances Mayes’ book, ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’, and the author’s house can be seen from our property. Although 6 kilometres away by car, guests can choose to enjoy a scenic 2 kilometre walk to the centre of Cortona.

There are three other villas on the estate (Villa di Liliana, Villa di Orlando and Villa di Nello) which are in completely different areas, making each property very private, yet also suitable for larger groups, or several families wanting to travel together. Each of the villas also has its own private garden and swimming pool, and all enjoy spectacular views over the Cortona countryside.

Piccolo Orlando was completely restored in 2014 and has its own parking area, garden and swimming pool (8 x 4m). The interiors (120m2) combine traditional features with modern comforts, including air conditioning, heating, Wi-Fi, satellite TV and DVD. A covered veranda is furnished for outdoor dining and there is a barbecue. The estate’s olive oil and wine can be purchased by guests and the owner will also arrange a cook on request, for the arrival meal and during the stay. Cooking lessons and wine tours can be arranged.
