For those who enjoy privacy, this beautifully restored traditional Tuscan farm house offers the opportunity experience real Tuscan living. The house has 3-4 bedrooms ( 2 double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom and an option of a further bed in the study), two 2 bathrooms - (one with bathtub). sitting room, fully fitted kitchen, terraces and a fabulous swimming pool. It really is the perfect family retreat!

Perhaps the main focal point is the pool which overlooks the entire valley. A wonderful place to sit and relax whilst enjoying the views and incredible sunsets over the Cortona tower. Or to enjoy the refreshing water on a hot summers day. During the evening, the pool is lit - perfect to come home to from days sight-seeing.

Set in 60 acres of woodland, both the house and gardens enjoy spectacular views of the whole Val di Chiana. This type of property is also called a agriturismo which is a Tuscan farmhouse - but Casa Francesco is very different!

The house retains many of its original features - all the rooms have original beams and floors. The stonework is by artisans of yesteryear. Each room has a magnificent view and outside, the lovely gardens, beautiful terraces and acres of Tuscan countryside all go to providing an exquisite retreat in Tuscany.

Cortona - with its summer festivals, concerts and excellent restaurants is just 15 minutes away and day trips to the area's most famous towns - Arezzo, Montepulciano, Siena, Montalcino, Pienza, Florence, Perugia, Assisi are all quite easy.

The access road is extremely well maintained and gravelled. This is the perfect location for privacy, peace and quiet and wonderful views, while not at all far from the many spectacular medieval towns in the area.

"An enchanting holiday"

My husband and I and our 4 children, aged 4 to 14, spent a week in June at Casa Francesca.The gardens were a sea of yellow Spanish broom and pink dog-rose with lavender and rosemary preparing to bloom around the pool and the house. The house is spacious, cosy, comfortable and impeccably clean, filled with books and paintings and obviously a much-loved home. Once up at the top of the private mile-long driveway it was quiet and peaceful with the garden lit by fireflies at night. The children loved the sloping pool with its wide,large shallow steps. We had a wonderful time with advice forthcoming from the helpful owners and hope to go back next year !

"house on top of the world"

We loved this beautiful Tuscan farmhouse, comfortable, obviously a much loved home, high in the hills with spectacular views and sunsets (AND LO Lots of outside space, no near neighbours, good walks and about 15 mins to Cortona by car. Wonderful for lazy days by the pool and for days out to visit other towns and villages in the area. Camucia at the bottom of the hill, which has a great weekly market, is perfect for buying all provisions. The owners who stay on the property in a tower are really helpful and an absolute mine of information. That first drive up the hill may present itself as a bit of a challenge to some but the end result, "the house on top of the world", as my son described it, is well worth it. We loved the holiday.

"Fantastic place to stay and unwind."

We have been coming here for the past three year in May or June for a fortnight at a time.
We find the peace and tranquility fantastic. Good views clean comfortable accommodation.
Just what one would expect from a Tuscan holiday. Would highly recommend this property.
