About the estate
With a private lake, woodlands and olive groves, and splendid views to distant hilltop castles, this luxury villa in Tuscany is an exquisite retreat, exuding tranquillity and sophistication.
A superb family villa, set in the hills between Cortona and Umbertide, this imposing old manor house is quietly secluded, yet well placed for exploration of both Tuscan and Umbrian towns. Beautifully restored to retain its character features, the villa’s rough-hewn rafters, traditional tiled ceilings and stone lintels are juxtaposed with contemporary comforts, in rooms designed with understated elegance. At the heart of the house an exquisite drawing room is furnished in blues and white, combining antiques with works of modern art, next door an extremely comfy study is the place to read, watch tv or curl up on the sofa. The first floor offers further seating areas, a galleried sitting room, library and two outdoor terraces.
