The sitting room has an old open fireplace and impressive, ancient wooden beams. Two comfy sofas are a nice modern addition! The dining room is authentic Italian 1950s decor under more seriously ancient ceiling beams. The atmosphere at San Silvestro is one of homely country simplicity. There's an old marble-topped table in the kitchen, a stone sink, a modern oven and fridge-freezer. It's all highly acceptable and practical! There's a little shower room downstairs

Upstairs the double and twin bedrooms are both large and comfortable, while the little single room is cute in its Tuscan simplicity. There's also a spotlessly clean, old fashioned bathroom.

Further details indoors

The warmly welcoming owners live in their fine villa about 50 yards away. Carla speaks reasonable English and her husband, the endlessly kind and considerate Paolo, will make himself understood no matter the gaps in your Italian or his English! They'll happily offer local advice whenever needed, but they'll never get in your way. Paolo is well connected locally: if you'd be interested, he can arrange some rather special discounts on stylish Italian children's clothes, upmarket cashmere or traditional pottery - just say the word and he'll ensure you get the opportunity to pick up some real Italian bargains!

Further details outdoors

The neighbours are discreetly tucked away from sight. Your quiet garden is entirely private, bordered by the owners' vineyard, shaded by pines and filled with the scent of box hedging and the sound of busy cicadas - a quintessentially Tuscan spot! The wide views across the valley towards Lake Trasimeno are fabulous. And up the hill, just 2 km away, is historic Cortona.

The pool is in front of the owners' villa but they generally leave it free for guests to use so you won't find anyone else in it!

The Tuscany region

Cortona need no introduction. Within easy drives from San Silvestro are Arezzo, the provincial capital, with its busy main street and justly famous frescoes. The same distance to the west is Montepulciano with its fabulous wine cantinas. From san Silvestro you can also dip into Umbria, whether to sample a day at the lake (Trasimeno) or to do some sightseeing at perugia or Assisi.


Cortona is a beautiful hilltop town and one of Tuscany’s most sought-after locations. This cosmopolitan little town boasts a generous handful of excellent eateries and some very stylish shops line the atmospheric, medieval streets within the ancient city walls. Shopping up at Cortona is a more “touristy” experience, or maybe it’s just more “sophisticated” - whatever: you can buy some gorgeous clothes there and the local pottery is highly temptatious, while the Etruscan museum gives an interesting glimpse of life over 2,000 years ago. Alternatively there's the village of Camucia, just a mile away, with a couple of supermarkets, a post office, several bars and eateries, a bank and some interesting shops to explore - and the cantina sells local wines at ridiculously cheap prices! Enjoy a trip into Camucia in the cool of the evening to sample an ice cream, then pick up a pizza from the excellent take-away before heading back home to watch the sun go down over Cortona.
