I searched for a long time before finding this wonderful place on the internet. It’s a bargain, on the edge of Tuscany, hidden away in a valley 30 mins away from Cortona but with lovely views. Host Christiana, (German) is married to musician Cesare (Italian) and the place feels like a well-run small hotel even though it is self-catering. The pool is kept immaculately clean, garden watered. The local bar (friendly owner also a musician) is a 15 min walk along the small road lit by fireflies. Cesare will happily share his Instruments and recording studio, if you want to disturb the sound of silence, crickets and birds (very very rarely a car). Come alone or in a group. Christianna has a large light airy yoga studio and therapies are offered on-site. The casa is perfect for a dip in the pool after visiting Tuscan or Umbrian towns or villages. As with most of hilly Tuscany and Umbrian, places can only be reached by driving roads with many bends. I took a flight to Perugia and easily drove here, stopping at Assisi on my return. From the Casa I walked 4 hour in the hills, finding breath taking views but not meeting a soul.
