This quiet escape has all the benefits of Cortona without the hustle and bustle or the steep price. This 1 BDR/1Bath condo sleeps 4 and is located in a quiet residential neighborhood close to Cortona. Sofa bed, sleeps 2, is located in LR. Live like a local and enjoy the views as you see immaculately trimmed trees and beautiful flowers that surround the area. Smell the fragrance of jasmine, or gaze at the pomegranate trees, as you set out for a walk through the village.

The local farmer's market is held on Thursday mornings. Here you can buy the freshest of fruits and vegetables. For a couple of euros you can savor the flavor of a "Panini con la Porchetta" cooked using a traditional Tuscan recipe. Purchase some fresh fish to cook for dinner, or buy some "pane" and some of the famous "pecorino" cheese, made in nearby Pienza, to take with you as you tour the wine making village of Montalcino. You can also purchase gifts to take back home as there is a wide selection of tablecloths, etc.

There are cafe's throughout the town where you can order an espresso, a cappuccino, or a glass of "vino bianco" or "vino rosso." This area is known for its wine production. You may want to take one of the wine tours, or take a cooking class, or just visit the mouth-watering restaurants and let the tuscan chef's do all of the work. Whatever you desire, you can find it here in Tuscany. We can help you fulfill your dream of a "Tuscan Vacation."

The Tuscany region

Located in Tuscany known for its verdant rolling hills and perfectly manicured trees. Take a ride through The Chianti Road (La Chiantigiana /SS 222) and stop at some of the local wineries. In Spring, you can see the beautiful orange/red poppies throughout the region. Spring is a good time for visiting the many festivals. Cortona celebrates Liberation Day, May Day, Copper Pot Festival, Snail Festival, Truffle Festival, and the mouthwatering Beefsteak Festival to name a few. Each year, Cortona is home to the "Cortona Mix", which hosts various operas, ballets, and music events. There is also "Cortona on the Move" a well-know photography exhibit held each year. You can also sign up for photography classes. In nearby Passignano sul Trasimeno, "Festa della Barca" is held each year. It is a boat race that is unlike any others you will see. The party continues into the night. There is horseback riding, tennis, hiking, walking, and almost anything you want in the local area.
