Quite the Tuscan idyll, this attractive farmhouse with guest annex and pool, stands right on the Tuscan side of the Tuscan and Umbrian border. Located in Cortona’s Falzano area, it is surrounded by rural farmland and woodland, easily accessible and just off an asphalted road, with wonderful far reaching views.
The main house has a lovely layout with large interconnecting rooms on the ground floor that go around a central staircase. There is a wonderfully large kitchen, a dining room, a sitting room, an entrance hallway, guest bathroom and laundry room. On the first floor there is a landing with original stone fireplace, an en suite and a further 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms. At the front of the house there is a large covered porch on which to dine ‘al fresco’ while enjoying the views.
Adjacent to the main house there is a guest annex consisting of sitting room with fireplace, kitchenette and bathroom, and on the floor above, a bedroom. On a terrace below, there is a swimming pool strategically placed to enjoy the best of the views.
The property which has a wonderful air of peace and quiet, is a 40 minute drive from Cortona town, but well serviced by a number of nearby small villages – Calzolaro, Trestina, San Leo Bastia – and is approximately 20 minutes from both Citta’ di Castello and Umbertide.
The property comes with surrounding land and could be considered an ideal choice for getting ‘far from the madding crowd’ in a relaxing and rural context, but with an eclectic mix of native Italians and globally travelled neighbours.
Perugia airport is 40 minutes away, Florence 2 hrs, Rome 2hrs.
