Il Biancospino is a gracious property ideal for families and small groups, immersed in the greens of the cortonese mountains between oak and chestnut trees.
These places evoke a charm with flavors of ancient times and represent the secret soul of the most profound Tuscany which has preserved its own beautiful landscapes and architecture throughout the centuries.
Il Biancospino originates as the annex of the villa padronale (mansion house), which rises in the immediate proximity and has recently been reconstructed respecting the original architectural features: terracotta floors, wood beams and casings, stone stairs.
The house expands on 2 floors which are not connected internally, and a wise use of typical Tuscan traditional material gives the it a country touch which combines well with the surrounding landscape.
The swimming pool (6x12) was built in a panoramic position in the big park surrounding the villa, equipped with barbecue tables and chairs, ideal for al fresco dining and for exclusive use of the guests.
We recommend this property to those who wish to spend their vacation away from town, from restaurants, caf?s and shops in order to breathe the authenticity of places with antique traditions.
