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. La Quercia apartment on the first floor is 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 sat 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)

"The perfect base camp to travel around Tuscany"

We stayed there for two weeks during the summer with our kids (6 and 2). The property is beautiful and very quiet, the view is amazing. The house was very old (about 400 years) but has just been renovated, it had everything you may need to spend a very comfortable long vacation. It had A/C, modern bathrooms, cable tv, full kitchen, swimming pool and even a brick oven. Everything very clean. Staying there was like traveling through time, you can get the feeling of how was life on Tuscany back then. The location is great, you do need a car, but is right between Tuscany and Umbria so most cities were less than 1 hour drive, you can drive to amazing locations during the day and then return to have a quiet dinner in your own terrace just looking how the sun rays fall softly over Tuscany.
