Villa Pietro is a beautiful rural farmhouse that once belonged to the owner’s nonni(grandparents). The house is situated on the ring road of Cortona that wraps around the town. The road is lined with cypress trees and both this road and Villa Pietro have a spectacular view of the Val di Chiana and the Lake Trasimeno beyond. Close by on the road sits the famous Bramasole, home of Frances Mayes, who wrote ‘Under the Tuscan Sun.’ The walk to town takes about 15 or 20 minutes, wrapping around the hillside and through the beautiful ‘Parterre’ a stunning tree lined park that was gifted by the French around the turn of the last century. It is very French in feel and is one of the only parks of it’s kind in Italy. The park leads to Via Nazionale, the main entrance to town, with all the beautiful shops, restaurants and cafes.
Villa Pietro has been recently renovated while still retaining many of it’s original features. There is a stunning garden, private pool and terraced garden with beautiful olive trees. There is even a donkey who resides on the property! This farmhouse villa is comprised of two separate apartments in the building, joined by a common wall. The apartment Laura entrance opens onto an extraordinary living room. Here one can find a stone fireplace, sofas and comfortable armchairs. An archway frames the fully-equipped kitchen which can easily accommodate 10 people. A bathroom with shower and a laundry room can also be found on this floor.
A wooden staircase in the living room leads to the first floor where there are two double bedrooms, one twin bedroom and a bathroom with shower.
This apartment also features a gorgeous patio with outdoor furniture. The pool and views are exquisite and the relaxation one can experience at Villa Pietro is unparalleled.
