Villa Gloria is a quaint cottage that is set in a charming and panoramic position, with completely authentic surroundings. Immersed in the lush mountains of Cortona, near the border between Tuscany and Umbria, this property offers the serenity of a stay in direct contact with nature and with the lifestyles of past rural civilizations, away from the frenzy and deafening noises of modern life. Villa Gloria is located next to the farmhouse where the owner and his family reside. People born and raised in this wild and beautiful scenery, you will appreciate their simplicity and availability.
The structure consists of two housing units that are separated by beautiful stone steps about two meters wide, which start at the house and arrive in the beautiful garden that opens up to a splendid view. This characteristic makes the property particularly suitable to accommodate two families or two groups of people who would like to spend their holiday together while retaining some degree of autonomy.
The interior of the house is beautifully restored, including manicured ceilings with wooden beams, comfortable and tasteful furniture, all in accordance with the traditions and customs of the area. The garden located in front of the house is perfectly set up for spending relaxing days in the open air, thanks to great outdoor furniture and a lovely pool that will cool off even the hottest of days.
