The Tuscany / Arezzo Province region
Set in a lovely unspoilt area of the famous Etruscan hilltop town of Cortona, Casa Leopoldina is a large 7 bedroom leopoldina villa with private pool.
Set in the countryside, Cortona can be seen on one side sitting on a hillside, while Montepulciano can be seen on another, further in the distance, with the mountains of Amiata and Cetona too in the distance. The location is ideally only a short drive to well known villages, such as Montepulciano and Montalcino (famous for their wines), Montalcino (known for its Brunello), Chianciano Terme (hot spring baths), Gubbio (famous for its ceramic pottery), Lake Trasimeno (beaches and champagne boat tours and wind surfing), Pienza (famous for its Pecorino cheeses) and Monte San Savino (famous for porchetta). These are just a few of the places which are within easy driving distance, as are many others. There are numerous vineyards in the area which offer vineyard tours and wine-tasting.
The A1 motorway exit of Valdichiana is 10 minutes away from Casa Leopoldina while shops, supermarkets, banks, bars, restaurants, weekly market and the mainline railway station of Camucia-Cortona are all just a 5 minute drive by car.
Casa Leopoldina offers a truly perfect stay for your holiday in Tuscany at any time of year.
The Cortona area
Casa Leopoldina is situated perfectly between Montepulciano and Cortona, in an area surrounded by many vineyards offering wine tasting and wine tours. There is an ideal mix of open spaces and seclusion, whilst being just minutes from the A1 motorway, linking Rome/Pisa, Perugia and Florence.
Lake Trasimeno is the fourth largest lake in Italy and is only a 20 minute drive away, and where Hannibal defeated the Romans in 217BC.. Cortona is a beautiful medieval hilltop town, rich in art and history. There is also a museum in Cortona which houses many of the Etruscan findings of the area.
Cortona is also the location of the film 'Under The Tuscan Sun' which was based on the book written by the Author Frances Mayes. Montepulciano, which is a short drive away from Cortona, was also used as a set location for the film 'New Moon' starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.
