About the villa

Hi-spec luxury | Tennis court | Large heated infinity pool

A superb family villa, set in the hills between Cortona and Mercatale, this imposing old manor house is quietly secluded, yet well placed for exploration of both Tuscan and Umbrian towns. Beautifully restored to retain its character features, the villa’s rough-hewn rafters, oak ceilings and stone lintels are now juxtaposed with modern appliances, contemporary comforts and intriguing artefacts, in rooms designed with understated elegance. At the heart of the house a charming drawing room is furnished in fresh blue and white, complemented by a cosy tv room, first floor study and galleried sitting room.

Bedrooms are romantically and individually styled, including four-posters and antique pieces, while bathrooms are fitted with large walk-in showers and roll-top or old marble baths. Providing the perfect setting for indoor/outdoor living, the house has a wonderful loggia for al fresco sitting and dining. And in the gardens, a pathway through pergola arches leads to the infinity pool and striking poolside gazebo. Nestled in acres of privacy, the villa is 8km from Mercatale and 12km from Umbertide.
