Set in peaceful countryside, overlooking the ancient Etruscan, hillside town of Cortona, 10 km away. Villa Etruria is a beautifully and sympathetically restored farmhouse, encompassing many traditional features, as well as high-quality, modern amenities, to provide simple, elegant but comfortable living. The mature garden has been carefully planted with shrubs and flowers, including rosemary, lavender, roses and jasmine, to provide an oasis of tranquillity in harmony with the surrounding countryside.
The house has five bedrooms, (three king-size and two queen size that can be turned into two double singles) and four bathrooms. The three king-size bedrooms have en suite shower rooms (one also has a bath). The two twin/queen rooms share a large bathroom which also has a stand-alone shower. Each bedroom has been furnished simply with artisan-made iron beds, teak furniture and top of the range mattresses. There is ample storage in each room.
The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped with two dishwashers and fridges and plentiful crockery and glasses. There is a gas barbecue on a dining terrace. Four large reception rooms offer ancient fireplaces, wood-burning stoves, comfortable sofas and chairs, books, games and wifi. There is underfloor central heating and four seasons' bedding, making this an ideal holiday home for the Spring and Autumn as well as the Summer.
An exquisite, stone-lined pool (12' x 6') is set in an ancient and tranquil olive grove above the house commanding magnificent views of Cortona and its surrounding countryside and providing an opportunity for perfect peace and relaxation for your holiday. There is a little pool house, complete with bathroom and a kettle and fridge.
For the energetic, there is a gym, equipped with top of the range equipment, including a running machine, cross-trainer, and full set of weight. Outside, there is a petanque court for boules facing west to catch the last rays of summer sunshine. There is a table tennis under the shaded portico.
