Description from owner

Description

Casa Fontelunga is a lovely country house placed in an enchanted location hillside, between our olive plantation and just a few minutes from the beautiful art city of Cortona, made famous worldwide from the book and movie 'Under the Tuscan Sun'.

Privacy and quietness are the main features of this accommodation, left intact in the original stile, renovated maintaining a warm and welcoming atmosphere and a very romantic look.

It is easy to reach and to move from, thanks to the centrality of the area, well connected to main communication road and railroad that you can reach in only a few minutes drive. Still you will feel the sensation of being immersed in the quietness of the typical Tuscan countryside.

The 3 level garden faces the sunset and the swimming pool has view on the valley underneath. The typical Tuscan country stile has been preserved and it is also close to main Umbrian city like Perugia, Orvieto, the Trasimeno lake.
