Location doesn't get much better than this farmhouse in Tuscany, separated into two independent units and rented together. Perfect for two families traveling together, you can share outdoor areas of this Tuscany villa with a pool without crowding each other inside. Get together for a walk into Cortona, which is where the movie 'Under the Tuscan Sun' starring Diane Lane takes place as well as the book it's based off of by Frances Mayes, for your morning constitutional followed by fresh pastries and cafe latte—and then explore! We also recommend taking the short drive to Lake Trasimeno, where you can enjoy all sorts of water-based activities in a beautiful setting.

(10 acres/4 hectares) This pair of farmhouses is situated in a quiet spot amongst the gently rolling hills of Cortona, only 500 meters from the town center. The houses themselves offer superb views over Valdichiana and the surrounding hills, as far as Lake Trasimeno to the east and Montepulciano to the west. The houses are surrounded by a spacious garden where the sun shines all year, and there is a private swimming pool (14m x 7m, 80cm – 1.4cm deep, Open April to October). A laundry room is located in a separate building within the garden and has a washing machine, drying rack, and iron and ironing board. Beyond that are four hectares of olive groves and woods, perfect for peaceful walks. The owners, farmers and shepherds for four generations, live on the family farm in the Valdichiana, only a few kilometers away, where guests are welcome to taste the farm's products: olive oil, wine, vin santo, pecorino cheese, and more. (350 m2/ 3,767 ft2) This vacation rental is made up of two completely restored stone houses, with original wood-beam ceilings and traditional Tuscan terracotta tile floors. <b>Sorella Una</b> <b>Ground Floor:</b>The centerpiece of this rustic-style living room is without question the huge, traditional Tuscan fireplace, filling the room with charm and warmth regardless of whether the fire is burning or not.

About the neighbourhood
The countryside around the estate is the ideal place to go for a walk, horseback riding, jogging, or mountain biking. The amazing city of Cortona, which also has all the necessities and services, such as banks, bars, post office, antiques, pharmacies, clothing, grocery stores, and restaurants, is only a 500 meter walk away (it is hilly). This city is an encounter with art, history, and culture. You'll rediscover Tuscany's past in Cortona, which has changed very little in the last 400 years or so. Sitting in the center of the triangle formed by Arezzo, Siena, and Perugia, as well as being near Lake Trasimeno and the Appenines, Cortona is both ideally located for day trips and a sparkling gem of the region. In Cortona there is no end to picturesque streets and amazing historic buildings. To...
