Villa with pool in Valdichiana, near Cortona (Arezzo). Sleeps 6, garden, Internet connection, air conditioning, barbecue. Tennis club, golf club and riding stable nearby.
The villa is a real jewel of Tuscan rural architecture situated in the heart of Valdichiana, just a few kilometres from Cortona (Arezzo) and near the famous Abbey of Farneta.
The small villa stands in panoramic position atop a hill and commands the surrounding corn and sunflower fields and olive groves that stretch as far as the eye can see.
The 18th-century villa owes its particular structure to the fact that in origin it was a resting place for travellers and their horses.
