Cortona Tuscan Countryside

Brief Description

Located in the Tuscan province of Arezzo, Casale Belle Vista is just a short drive away from the energetic town of Cortona, right in the heart of Italy. This exquisite country house was built from stone on an elevated hill, allowing for a breathtaking view of the Tuscan countryside. The property has been able to maintain its original Tuscan spirit without giving up the comforts of modern daily life. The 1.150m2 country house has been divided into two distinct separate units which can easily be re-joined. Outside, the property is surrounded by an elegant garden with an olive grove and two large swimming pools for the two units.  The property can be used as a private residence or as a bed and breakfast with a restaurant.

Location

Casale Bella Vista is located in the enchanting Cortona countryside. The city is a typical historical Italian town located on a hilltop, where one can enjoy in the splendid panoramic views of Lake Trasimeno and the surrounding valley.

Cortona is ideal for those passionate about history and culture and an authentic location for someone to immerse themselves in Italian life just as Frances Mayes represents in both her bestseller and famous film Under The Tuscan Sun.  Tourists today still flock to Villa Bramasole to take a peak at the villa which inspired the American author to write her book.  The University of Georgia also houses their study abroad campus in Cortona due to the city’s strong appeal towards foreigners.  Cortona has an interesting history as the city dates back to Etruscan and Roman civilizations. Visitors can spend the day in the Museo dell’Accademia Etrusca,  the National Archaeological Park of Cortona, visit the Duomo and other various churches to learn about Cortona’s significant status throughout the Middle Ages. There are also small artisanal shops where one can purchase hand made products and local gastronomical items.

Arezzo is another medieval town famous for housing paintings from Vasari and Petrarca. Arezzo is also the home of the famous medieval jousting festival La Giostra del Saracino.

Description in Detail

Located in the Tuscan province of Arezzo, Casale Belle Vista is just a short drive away from the energetic town of Cortona, right in the heart of Italy. This exquisite country house was built from stone on an elevated hill in the 19th century. The elevation allows for a breathtaking view of the Tuscan countryside, and the two valleys it’s surrounded by, the Val di Chiana and the Lucignano. The property was a bed-and-breakfast as well as a restaurant and has been renovated to match, but it still retains the original infrastructure it was built on.

The owner’s manor of 350m2 has been recently restructured and consists of a luxurious double living room with a fireplace, spacious kitchen, four large bedrooms some with a walk-in closet, three bathrooms, study, sauna, laundry room, and a spacious attic.
