In an absolutely beautiful period setting dating back to the 16th century, a gracious residential complex, with perfectly maintained grounds and a large swimming pool.
Surrounded by some of Cortonaâ€™s most beautiful countryside and accessed by a road lined with cypress trees, the complex neighbours the original villa that was bestowed upon Cardinal Passerini by the Medici family.
The villa, to the back of the complex and just a short walk away, has since become the prestigious Villa di Piazzano hotel which has an excellent restaurant open to the public.
The apartment for sale is built on three floors with a small private garden.
All the finishes, both inside and out, are to the highest quality.
The ground floor consists of a kitchen, living room with stone fireplace and a bathroom.
The second floor has a large bedroom, a bathroom and a storage space.
The top floor is an incredible loft space â€“ absolutely stunning â€“ used as a bedroom.
The complex is well situated for wonderful bike rides and walks and is just 1km from the quaint village of Pergo which is well serviced with a supermarket/delicatessen with excellent wines, cheeses, meat and general groceries, a pizzeria, a hardware store and a Relais hotel/restaurant/spa.
Pergo is a lively and friendly village frequented by both local Italians and the areaâ€™s international community and its bar has become a focal point for the area: with its outside seating it is the perfect place for breakfasting, taking an aperitivo and should one wish, a place in which to make acquaintances.
Cortona town is no more than 8 kms away, as is Camucia the new town below Cortona where one can find all services as well as a main line train station (Rome-Florence-Milan) and access to all major motorways. Perugia airport is 40 mins, Florence airport 1hr 15 mins, Rome 2hrs.
