About the Villa

Savor a taste of la dolce vita from the sanctuary of your stunning Italian villa. Perched in the hills near Cortona, your two-story Tuscan home has been lovingly restored with three bedrooms, a private pool, and a fully equipped Italian kitchen. Vaulted wooden beams, stone detailing, and a charming wood-burning fireplace make for elegance and relaxed comfort.

A sun-flooded living space opens directly onto the outdoor terrace with breathtaking views of the valley below. Prepare an authentic Tuscan meal in the outdoor stone oven, best savored alfresco on the spacious stone terrace. Feel yourself unwind as you stroll the shaded gardens and arbors then cool off in the private pool overlooking the rolling hills.

  • Unwind with a private pool and gardens overlooking the rolling hills and valley
  • Discover the nearby medieval towns of Cortona, Arezzo, and Montepulciano
  • Savor an optional private wine tasting or day-trip to world-famous Florence
  • Immerse yourself in Italian art and culture with handpicked experiences available to add on
  • Benefit from Premium Guest Services for trip planning

Experience the timeless romance of the region with unforgettable local experiences curated by your dedicated concierge. Wander the sweeping vineyards and local wineries as you sample the finest in Tuscan varietals. Just minutes away by car the medieval hilltop towns of Cortona, Arezzo, and Montepulciano are yours to discover. Explore cobblestone streets, Roman ruins, and Renaissance frescoes, then return home for breathtaking views of the valley under the setting Tuscan sun.
