Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Villa Torre degli Elci is set in the greens of the Tuscan countryside, midst olives and cypress trees and just 4 km from Cortona. The name of the Villa derives from the old sighting tower which has testimonials from 13th and 14th century and which became a monastery and then at the beginning of 19th century, a big country house.
