Casa Contea was created from an old farmhouse dating back to 1800, completely renovated. With its stone walls, the courtyard, the wooden beams, you can recreate the atmosphere of the ancient past, combined with the comfort of our days. Its elevated position, surrounded by forest, dominates the entire Valdichiana offering a glimpse of the Lake Trasimeno. With its swimming pool which enjoys a breathtaking view, where you can see in the distance Montepulciano and the outline of Mount Amiata, you can indulge in blissful relaxation, leaving behind the stresses and strains of everyday life. To really get the beauty and fragrance of the countryside, we recommend healthy walking and cycling among the many routes available in the area, including the famous passage of Hannibal. Its strategic location allows to reach, with just a few minutes drive, the most important Umbrian and Tuscan historical, cultural and gastronomic sites. Casa Contea lies at 9 Km from Cortona, an Etruscan city in which you can visit historical buildings of a great interest, such as Fortress or the hermitage of the Celle, founded by St. Francis. Lovers of art and archeology, will satisfy their curiosity by visiting the Diocesan Museum, containing works by Luca Signorelli.

The farmhouse is divided in 3 apartments, two of which are in the main building (one on the ground floor and the other one on the first level) and the last one is an independent cottage which lies at 20 mt from the main house. The main building is structured by two twins apartments which are both composed by a typical countryside livable kitchen separated from the living room by a brick arch. The living room is accessorized by the brick fireplace, a couple sofa-bed, LCD tv, and all the typical furniture of a farmhouse. Laterally both on the left and on the right you can find two ample double bedrooms with two bathrooms on each side. The outside garden of 8000 square meters has got an amazing panoramic view overlooking the Lake Trasimeno from side to side and the whole Valdichiana; it's furnished by a grill and a stoned pizza wood oven and a panoramic stoned patio with outdoor tables and chairs with umbrellas just beside a big swimming pool surrounded by a roses enclosure and secure parking inside. In addition, for the free use of the guests, there are 4 mountain bikes, a laundry and a little grove of trees with a vineyard and a olive grove in which it's possible to take a walk, free wi-fi connection.

During spring and summer the area is fulfilled by cultural and typical folklore events. About 38 km from Arezzo, which was a major lucumonies Etruscan, then Roman city of strategic importance. Center full of interesting monuments such as the amphitheater, the Cathedral, the Medici Fortress and the town hall. Among all its beauty stands the Romanesque church of Santa Maria della Pieve. He was renowned for its famous coral vases. About 30 km from Montepulciano, famous for its imposing Renaissance palaces, the elegance of its churches, but especially for its fine wine noble, well-known importance of international importance. About 73 km from the city of Siena has a fabulous repertoire and geographic environment, full of villages, historical memories and treasures of art. Center that keeps alive its ancient traditions, of which the most important is the festival of the Palio. Perugia (42 km), Assisi (65 km) Spello (70 km), Firenze (90km)

"Incredible view with sunsets that make you glad to be alive"

This place is incredible. The pool is icing on a delicious cake of relaxation.

Be sure to have a car with GPS and set up a place to meet the host before leaving. This place is very hard to find.

Once you find it, you'll never want to leave. Except for day trips to the beautiful nearby cities and to the grocery store. Enjoy!!

"A marvellous vista every morning"

Our stay at Casa Contea was perhaps the best part of our visit to Tuscany. The photos accurately represent the property, in fact the vistas are far better in person. Terantola is a great town from which to base your travels of Tuscany and Umbria. Montepulciano is only 30 minutes away and Cortona is a short 10 minute drive. Our hosts were most helpful with tips for groceries, sightseeing and restos; and were very responsive when needed. We have used Airbnb several times before and this was a perfect experience (esp. the sightings of wild boar and foxes).
The only thing to be aware of is that a car is required to access this 'mountain top' property.
We'll be back!

"Beautiful little paradise in the south of Toscane."

The view is breathtaking! The swimmingpool, the garden, the service, everything was perfect!

The road to the cottage is a bit rough and takes about ten minute drive.

"A perfect getaway atop the Tuscan hills!"

High atop a hill, overlooking the breathtaking beauty of Tuscany, this is a perfect place to stay. We were with another couple for the entire week and on the last night my brother joined us and stayed in the apartment above. It felt like home! Perfectly appointed, incredibly comfortable beds, all the amenities we could need and wonderful hosts in Valentina and Ivano who even saved the day when we realized on our last night that we had no wine left!
We could have stayed longer and hope to come back again soon!
Gracie per tutti!

Thanks Raquel, it was a pleasure having you as guests, you were fantastic, when you want the house is always ready for you. grazie grazie grazie... a presto Valentina e Ivano

"UN PARADISO A DUE PASSI DA CORTONA"

A mio giudizio il più bel casale nella zona di Cortona, l'unico a godere di una vista panoramica mozzafiato, si vede tutta la Val di Chiana e il Lago Trasimeno, la proprietaria è molto disponib… More

"La migliore vacanza in campagna al miglior prezzo"

Totalmente soddisfatti, un posto incantevole con una vista eccezionale. La casa Contea offre una struttura da sogno, rustica e con dettagli di alta qualità, una piscina immersa nel verde e una pace insuperabile per chi cerca una vacanza rilassante. Ha una posizione strategica, esattamente sul confine di umbria e toscana, che ci ha permesso di visitare molti paesi e luoghi turistici.
A parte le qualità del posto c'è da sottolineare la gentilezza e la disponibilità della proprietaria sempre attenta a che non mi mancasse nulla.
