Description

Dardano is a deceptively large house, full of atmosphere. It is a simple country home, basic even, but with an elemental charm.

You drive up to the house with its ancient stone well and to one side there's a little vine-covered area for shady outdoor eating. The garden is a neatly mown meadow with glorious views of the surrounding countryside, while the large outbuildings house a barbecue and give welcome shaded parking.

A flight of steps leads to the front door and into the old farmhouse kitchen, which also takes a stab at doubling as a sitting room. The stone floor and old fireplace (with a medieval “spy hole” hidden in it) has authentic Tuscany stamped all over it. We couldn't call the place smart; it isn't! But it'll charm you nevertheless with its comfortable bedrooms, ancient arched windows and huge old beams. Also on this floor are a double bedroom, a bedroom with twin beds and a bathroom with shower.

But it'll charm you nevertheless with its comfortable bedrooms, ancient arched windows and huge old beams. Also on this floor are a double bedroom, a bedroom with twin beds and a bathroom with shower.

From here you climb the stairs to reach the tower, which covers two floors. The double bedroom at this level has an en suite bathroom (with shower) and stairs lead straight up (without a door) to the double bedroom at the top.

The pool was built in 2008 with safety in mind: it's 3 ft 9 ins deep and completely fenced for total peace of mind.

Try Cortona's market for fresh bread, huge tomatoes bursting with sunshine flavour, real mozzarella and a flagon of local wine to enjoy in the garden - that's what Dardano's all about! It's plain, simple and appealing.

Location description from manager

The Tuscany region

Dardano is just 3 km from the centre of the splendid hilltop town of Cortona. The Tuscans are not noted for their modesty and in the case of Cortona, they haven’t held back in their urge to demonstrate its ancient origins. Annio Viterbese, who wrote a 15th Century version of The Rough Guide, would have us believe the city was founded 273 years after the Flood. Apparently Noah was so taken with “the altitude, the amenities and the air of tranquility,” that one of his offspring, a certain Crano, was detailed to create this delightful little walled citadel. Noah saw that goodly works had been done and bestowed the name Corito (derived from the Latin word for sceptre, the symbol of a king’s power) on his relative, and thus Cortona got its name. Whatever the truth may be, there is no doubt that Cortona is indeed ancient, and within its walls you’ll find eateries, smart shops and a museum housing the famous Etruscan lampadario.
