About the neighbourhood
The property is located in a pastoral area just 5.4 kilometers from Mercatale di Cortona, a quaint village which houses a church, a well-known trattoria, cafes and bars, a post office, supermarkets, butchers selling high-quality local meats (including the world-famous Chianina beef and salamis), a bakery, banks and a pharmacy.
