The Tuscany region

It is a great base for visiting the southern Tuscan towns; Cortona is within 35 minutes drive, the Chianti region is just over one hour's drive as is Siena and the famous wine towns of Montepulciano and Montalcino. In Umbria, Lake Trasimeno is a 30 minute drive, there is a beach at Tuoro with sunbeds and parasols for hire and children's play equipment, trampolines etc. pedaloes for hire and ferries for trips to the islands. The nearest town is Umbertide which has a colourful local market weekly and many shops and restaurants. The Umbrian towns of Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Todi and Orvieto with their wealth of artistic treasures, sublime architecture and long histories are all within each reach.

Mercatale di Cortona

The village of Mercatale di Cortona is a traditional Tuscan village. There are 2 small supermarkets, a baker's and 2 butchers shops, 3 cafes/bars and an excellent trattoria. It is a very friendly village and well liked by visitors. The neighbouring Umbrian village of Lisciano Niccone has 3 restaurants/trattorias and a few other shops both villages have festas in the summer months with music, dancing fireworks, and evening meals. The Niccone Valley is a beautiful green valley dotted with castles and stone farmhouses and cypress lined drives. It is a very peaceful area and good for walking.
