Villa Torre degli Elci is set in the greens of the Tuscan countryside, amidst olives and cypress trees, only 4 km from Cortona. The name of the Villa derives from the old sighting tower which has testimonials from the 13th and 14th century, which then became a monastery and finally, at the beginning of 19th century, a big country house.
Set on the slopes of the hill, the Villa has a great view of Cortona and of the Valdichiana. The position is strategic, just 5 minutes away from Cortona but far from main roads and noise. The Villa is surrounded by a big park of elm trees and is fenced to assure our guests the most privacy and relax. The country house has an automatic gate.
