Villa Santa Maria is a beautiful country house which originally dates back to the 1700s and is elegantly furnished in a traditional Tuscan style. Situated in a privileged position, upon a hillside (500 metres above sea level) amidst olive groves and 4 hectares of private land
The ground floor consists of a living room, which has direct access to the garden, a dining room with an old fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen and a toilet. A few steps to access the beautiful terrace and one extra bedroom with en-suite bathroom, with laundry area, which can host 2 people if needed.
On the upper floor we find three double bedrooms: one has en-suite bathroom, the others share one bathroom with shower. The annex, about 90 square metres, is made up of a cosy living room, well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher and two double bedrooms, each with private bathroom.
All rooms from the main villa can be converted into rooms with two single beds if needed. The beautiful garden offers stunning views of the surrounding Valdichiana countryside and has a swimming pool for exclusive use of the guests.
Cortona, the Etruscan town praised by many poets and writers, can be reached in a few minutes, walking along a quiet road which will bring you to its shops, museums and renowned restaurants. The position of the villa offers the possibility for trekking.
Only 5 minutes away there are a private club with tennis courts, football field, pool and restaurant and a riding school organising lessons as well as simple itineraries for beginners. For those who wish to combine nature and culture together, we suggest a visit to the mystic monastery Le Celle, founded in 1200 by St. Francis.
Please note: The property owners (Mrs Manuela and her mom) live in a self-contained apartment on the upper floor above the annexe to which there is a private, independent entrance at the back of the building.
