Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
On the Tuscany / Umbria border, the old farm of Azienda Pilari is only a short drive to Cortona and Lake Trasimeno. A walk across the field takes you to an old market town with a few shops, bars and restaurants.
Stalla is a restored apartment, one of just three, with a beautiful pool with a spa pool attached. The pool is set in the garden with loungers and sun umbrellas for sitting under in the heat of the day. The apartment has a private terrace for eating outside. Wonderful views across the sunflower fields to the hills beyond. Free WiFi.
It is on the ground floor level and was the old stable. Next the entrance there is a stone ring in the wall where people tied their horse or the cow. In the bedroom the bed is built over on the old manger. In the apartment there is a the sitting room with corner kitchen, a double bedroom, the bathroom with shower and a big veranda. In the kitchen there is a cooker and fridge freezer.
The three Pilari apartments are in the ancient hamlet that is the heart of this farm and its origins are lost in the distant past. The oldest part of the village was built as a watch tower of Pierle castle.

The Tuscany region
Lake Trasimeno is a short drive over the hills, passing through the battlefield where Hannibal defeated the Roman army. There are beaches, and boats out to the islands.
You are just 15 minutes from Cortona, a fabulous Renaissance hill town with the famous Fra Angelico Triptych and of course a selection of paintings by Pietro da Cortona. There are also many Etruscan tombs in the area.
Arezzo, with its Piero della Francesca frescos is less that 50km away, and Florence is an hour and a half.
Perugia is 45 km away and Assisi just beyond.
The whole of Umbria is within easy reach, as well as Tuscany. And you can visit Rome for the day.Just on the border of Tuscany, Pilari is an old 'Borgo' only a short walk from the small market town of Mercatale di Cortona which has a selection of shops, two banks with cashpoint machines, two supermarkets, three bars, a chemist, a post office, restaurant and other services.
The road on from Mercatale winds upwards through lovely countryside and you have stunning views of Lake Trasimeno and its islands.
