Casa Manzano is located within a recently restored residential complex consisting of twelve units: seven large terraced houses in the three hundred year old casa colonica and five further cottages in its grounds.
All units have been restored in the old Tuscan style with exposed wooden beams and floors in cotto.
The atmosphere of the whole complex is calm and relaxing. The majority of owners are from Europe or America, are conscious of local traditions and are looking for a high quality corner of Tuscany where they can relax and at the same time have the chance to make new friends and explore new possibilities.
There is ample parking shared by the owners and a large sunny swimming pool and barbecue/service area with lovely views of Cortona.
Casa Manzano is part of the old casa colonica and is one of the biggest in the complex. On the ground floor there is a living room/dining area with a fireplace with a large arched doorway leading into the kitchen and a small bathroom. On the first floor there are two bathrooms and three double bedrooms each with their own loft which can be used as additional living or sleeping spaces. The lofts could easily be converted to further bedrooms/bathrooms for those wanting more accommodation. Double doors from both the living room and from the kitchen take you to a fine private garden with views of Cortona perfect for outside dining and relaxation. The house is immediately available and ideal for use as a second or holiday home.
The house is set a few kilometers from Cortona, a jewel of Tuscany known throughout the world, and has excellent connections by road and rail to Rome (two hours) Florence (a little more than an hour) Siena/Perugia (about forty minutes) and many charming hill towns which are nearer still. The new Golf Complex at Manzano is just over a kilometer away.
You will be enchanted by the rural location of the place with its breathtaking views of Cortona and the surrounding countryside which is ideal for walks and cycling in the country lanes which lead from it. Every evening you can enjoy a different nearby restaurant; many are of very high quality and have a long tradition and experience with serving local dishes and wines.
A unique property permeated by Tuscan tradition and with private gardens and common areas expertly managed and maintained throughout the year to a high standard.
