Farmhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Casa Montisole is a beautiful 300 year old stone farmhouse that has just recently been renovated. A tremendous amount of effort has been put into creating an accommodation that exceeds the expectations of our guests. We call it 'Luxury Country Living'. The original character of the house was kept intact, while modern amenities were integrated into the interior. Elements such as a gourmet kitchen with fireplace, brand new appliances, granite counter top, glass door cupboards, dishwasher and American style refrigerator. Bedrooms, each with their own bathroom and shower, feature large beds, luxury linens and comforters and plenty of drawer space. The living room features leather sofas, a fireplace, and a plasma TV with DVD player and wireless internet. A private pool and garden offer panoramic views of the valley and the surrounding hills. Outdoor dining and barbecue areas are set among ancient olive trees that accent the garden.

The Tuscany region
Excellent wine tasting, tours, lunch and dinner are available at the local winery, just 15 min from the house. Local country walks and mountain biking are available directly from the house.
Local shops are located in Mercatale di Cortona and Lisciano Niccone, they are excellent. There is a bakery in Mercatale and top quality meats in the butcher shops in both villages. There are two grocery shops in Mercatale and a pharmacy on the way to Lisciano Niccone. There is also a small selection of goods at El Pino Bar just down at the main road; it’s also a good place for a real coffee. Local restaurants are very good, there’s Mimmi in Mercatale, Gianna in Lisciano Niccone these are both family owned and operated places. Also in Lisciano is a pizzeria named Fizz Bar which has great pizzas but only at dinnertime. Down the valley toward Umbertide is our local winery which also has a very good restaurant, they are open every day at 1pm. On Monday evenings during the summer, they offer tours of the vineyard and cantina along with dinner. Also on the way to Umbertide in the village of Niccone is Nonna Gelsa’s which is fabulous.
