Arezzo Cortona

Brief Description

Villa Cortona Mansion is a 16th century Villa situated only a few kilometers from Cortona at a location often called, “Valley of the Villas” and last underwent restoration in the 1960s. Today, the property includes the main building, a large orangery, an annex, cellars, a stable with an apartment above, and a beautiful private chapel.

Accessed through an antique gate that opens onto a long cypress-lined driveway and leads to a large ornamental pond with a fountain in front of the villa. The 10 hectares of fenced off land is made up of a variety of tall trees and shrubs and is crossed by a beautiful riding track originating from the 19thCentury. There is also a lovely lemon house in neo-gothic style, located at the side of the villa.

On the back of the building, a circle of holm oaks in line with the tree-lined driveway extends to the north wall. Two areas are thus delineated, the one to the west of a park and the one to the agricultural east.

The park (about 10 hectares) surrounding the building is a collection of rare tall trees and  scattered statues and rustic artifacts

The property has 6 apartments in the main building (two per floor, total sqm 2000), all with frescoed halls and various frescoed rooms on the ground floor as well as a kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms. There is a  Lemon house which lends itself very well to parties and banquets. Not far from the villa is the consecrated church formerly used as a chapel by the founding family of the Mansion as well as a  frescoed tower with large windows and terrace offering a magnificent view over the Chiana valley.

This prestigious property can be used either as a private residence or a high-level tourist business.

 

 

Location

Villa Cortona Mansion is located just a few kilometers from the magical town of Cortona. The city is a typical historical Italian town located on a hilltop, where one can enjoy in the splendid panoramic views of Lake Trasimeno.

Although Cortona is a small borgo, it is an ideal place for those passionate about history and culture and an authentic location for someone to immerse themselves in Italian life. We remember it as not only the filming location of the Academy Award Winning Film La Vita è Bella, but also because its roots date back to Etruscan and Roman civilizations. Visitors can spend the day in 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

The origin of this magnificent mansion dates back to the 16th century, during the late Renaissance. It is situated only a few kilometers from Cortona at a location often called, “Valley of the Villas”. Like many other villas of this importance, the property has been extended and modified over the centuries and last underwent restoration in the 1960s. Today, the property includes the main building, a large orangery, an annex, cellars, a stable with an apartment above, and a beautiful private chapel.

Access to the villa is via an antique gate that opens onto a long cypress-lined driveway and leads to a large ornamental pond with a fountain in front of the villa. The 10 hectares of fenced off land is made up of a variety of tall trees and shrubs and is crossed by a beautiful riding track originating from the 19thCentury. There is also a lovely lemon house in neo-gothic style, located at the side of the villa.

On the back of the building, a circle of holm oaks in line with the tree-lined driveway extends to the north wall. Two areas are thus delineated, the one to the west of the park and the one to the agricultural east, perfectly integrated with each other.

The park (about 10 hectares) surrounding the building is a collection of rare tall trees such as firs, horse chestnuts, baguettes, pines, holm-oaks, sequoias, yews, and elms, inside which are scattered statues and rustic artifacts.

The property has 6 apartments in the main building (two per floor, total sqm 2000), all with frescoed halls and various frescoed rooms on the ground floor as well as a kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms. On the west side of the body is the Lemon house which lends itself very well to parties and banquets. Not far from the villa is the consecrated church formerly used as a chapel by the founding family of the Mansion. There is also a  frescoed tower with large windows and terrace offering a magnificent view over the Chiana valley.

This prestigious property can be used either as a private residence or a high-level tourist business.
