The complex consists of a mansion and an adjoining farmhouse and may be rented both as a whole and separately.The beautiful stone-building has retained notable 16th century trimmings. Restoration work was completed in June 2007 and all furnishings were personally and carefully picked by the owner - they are mixed with valuable genuine family antique pieces.

The mansion served up to the 18th century as a post house known as the Locanda del Girifalco (as is witnessed by the old coat of arms depicting a gyrfalcon a bird of prey also known as Falco rusticolus) where the wayfarers could spend a night under cover.Both the villa and the apartments open out through large French doors (all with insect screen) onto the front garden unfolding with terracing and lawns.

The 4x8 metre swimming-pool specially reserved for our guests enjoyment is equipped with a salt electrolysis water-treatment system and sun shower.

The Tuscany region

The Basilica of Santa Margherita and the Convent of Le Celle invite guests to discover Cortona from up above providing an itinerary of art and faith only a stone's throw away from the town centre. Strolling down the Ruga Piana, today Via Nazionale (the only level street in town) you will get to the Piazza della Repubblica towered over by the imposing medieval Palazzo Comunale (town hall) whilst the adjoining Piazza Signorelli is dominated by the Palazzo Casali the former residence of the Casali housing today the MAEC (Museo dell'Accademia Etrusca e della Città di Cortona). Its rooms house a very interesting collection of Etruscan and Roman archaeological finds.

Located on the north end of town across Cortona form the Cathedral the Museo Diocesano is a real jewel-case housing works by major local artists such as Luca Signorelli as well as one of the most enchanting Annunciations by Beato Angelico. Outside the city gates at the foot of the hill The Melone I and II of Sodo are fine examples of Etruscan underground tombs from the 6th century B.C. The Abbey of Santa Maria of Farneta located along the road to Foiano is with its charming crypt one of the most ancient examples of Aretinian Romanesque art.

An event not to be missed is the Cortona Antiquaria antique fair, one of the most interesting national antique fairs. The event takes place every year in the 18th century Palazzo Vagnotti from the last Saturday of August to the second Sunday of September.

Besides its charm and beauty Cortona is a major tourist destination also for its ideal location enabling to easily and quickly get to major cultural and artistic sites such as Florence, Siena, Perugia, Assisi, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Lake Trasimeno, Arezzo, Pienza, Gubbio, Orvieto, Spoleto, etc.

Cortona

Located only 500 metres (5 minutes on foot) from the very heart of Cortona, an ancient Etruscan town, Villa Casale is the ideal location for relaxing and stress-free holidays.

An encounter with Cortona is an encounter with art, history and mysticism. Getting to know this timeless town is a real rediscovery of the villa's past. Within its mighty Etruscan walls Cortona jealously guards its treasures and offers testimony to the history of a most noble civilization as well as an enchanting view of the landscape enclosed by Lake Trasimeno and the Appenines.

From its high perch on top of a verdant hill Cortona dominates the Val di Chiana and offers commanding views over the valley all the way to the peaks of the Monte Amiata. The medieval aspect of buildings and alleyways gives the town a charming, unspoilt air.
