PROPERTY WITH MULTIPLE POSSIBILITIES
This beautiful property, just a short distance from Cortona – a favourite destination for wine connoisseurs the world over – could be the perfect location for a ‘master chef’ to set up business and make his mark in Tuscany, one of Italy’s most renowned regions steeped in natural beauty, culture, art and history.
It is also a region in which vineyards flourish and from which fine wines - exported world-wide - have become famous. It is the perfect setting in which to combine these wines with the ever increasing demand for fine dining.
In an alluring ambience which offers luxury accommodation for up to 12 (+3) guests, there is a restaurant, with professional kitchen which can comfortably cater for 100 guests (and up to 200 guests twice daily for an event) and a dedicated wine cellar to house a large selection of wines.
The building is divided into 2 units with separate living accommodation – 4 bedrooms, private garden and swimming pool – for the owner.
The guest area has a large, welcoming sitting room with fireplace, 4 bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and 2 suites with kitchenette (which can accommodate 2+2 and 2+1 respectively). The restaurant, on the ground floor, leads directly out into the garden allowing for larger, summer events.
The property stands in grounds of 5000 sqmt (approx. 2 acres) in which there is a pool and landscaped garden for guests to freely enjoy, as well as a private garden and pool for the owner. There are approx. 80 olive trees and the surrounding views are beautiful.
The interior design of the property is simple and effective: rustic, traditional and excellent quality materials for the main building with restaurant and a mix of the traditional and contemporary for the owners quarters.
The property is easily accessible and equidistant – 15 minutes - from the pretty and characteristic towns of Castiglion Fiorentino and Cortona both of which have main line railway stations (Rome-Florence-Milan) and excellent access to all major motorways. It is 25 mins from Arezzo, 50 mins from Siena, 90 mins from Florence.
Nearest airports are Perugia (45 mins), Florence 90 mins and Rome 2 hrs.
The initial investment of E.2.3 million doesn’t make this property a give-away, but it has been designed for professional use and a business could start-up immediately.
Tuscany receives millions of visitors each year. It is a popular location for weddings, holidays, cultural tours, cooking courses, wine tours etc… In order to make a success of what could be a fabulous Boutique Hotel-Restaurant, it would be essential to target the right market, but with so many people making Tuscany their destination – and with the growing popularity of fine dining and fine wines – it could prove a win win situation.
