This a very nice place to stay. It is I think once the summer residence of a powerful and wealthy Tuscan family. The villa has four floors. The square footage of the rental apartments is about 2,000 sq. ft. The ceilings are 12 or more feet high there are numerous shuttered windows without screens which can be completely opened for that open air out of doors experience. The walls are hung with old paintings and flags and family crests. The first two floors are occupied by a family descent the very gracious senora Tomassi. There is a slight sens of visiting someones home The suites are rennovated with modern bathrooms and a kitchen. There is hot water and showers. The grounds are extensive and well kept with tree lined walking paths and each suite has a private swimming pool of adequate size for play and relaxation. It is located just a few miles from the lovely hilltop Etruscan village of Cortona and just a few miles from the train station at Terontola for day trips to Rome or Florence. Highly recommended.
