A house in the woods, an intimate and essential environment, where the silence is broken only by the sounds of nature and a magical atmosphere is breathed, far from the madding crowd: Barbagianni (= Barn Owl) is the ideal corner for those wishing to spend a peaceful, romantic holiday in a discreet, welcoming place. Located between the straggly woods of the peaceful countryside surrounding exquisite Cortona, just a few kilometres away, and the Val d'Esse, full of churches and archaeological sites, stretching along the stream of the same name as far as Umbria, this pretty house has been completely renovated. Inside is a collection of old rural work tools, of objects that narrate of remote domestic traditions and furnishings that, thanks to a delicate work of restoration, have been revalued in their simple essentialness and put to new use. The rustic terracotta floors and the exposed ceiling beams are nicely matched with contemporary accessories, as can be seen in the re-covered bathroom walls or in the designer lamps, and combine perfectly with furnishings of traditional taste, creating a warm and comfortable domestic atmosphere. Outside, the furnished patio is the perfect setting for alfresco dining under a blanket of stars. The location of the house offers various opportunities to satisfy all exigencies of the guests who can alternate the relaxation guaranteed by the location with interesting and varied itineraries in the prestigious art towns and villages of Tuscany and Umbria. The property is about 100 metres from the house of the owners who could be a useful point of reference for the guests to whom, however, complete privacy is guaranteed. Additional amenities: Air conditioning in the bedroom, American coffee maker, baby cot, books and magazines, decoder Sky with card, electric oven,kettle, iron and ironing board, moka coffee machine, mosquito screens (not at the small Windows)More

About the neighbourhood
The Location is an ideal starting point for who wish to have nice daily trip and sightseeing all over South Tuscany and Umbria as well: being the city of Cortona located not far either from the motorway A1 ( exit Valdichiana) and from the freeway Siena-Perugia. Very well known sites like Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino, Perugia, Assisi and so on can be reached in less than hour driving as well as the hidden and maybe most beautiful corners of this 2 regions. Big cities like Florence or Rome can be easily reached also by train ( and we suggest to use it in high season to avoid traffic roads) being Cortona served by 2 train railways stations.
