Villas near Cortona
Luxury villas with Private pools · 23 years of experience · Concierge service
Cortona, with its walls that are still intact, sits in a strategic position, commanding the valley that leads south into Umbria and towards Rome. The countryside in this part of Tuscany varies dramatically from soft rolling hills to steep mountains with unspoilt villages hidden amongst small and private valleys. Here you can find farmhouses dating back over 600 years. We have a castle, La Rocca, that is fully staffed and run as a hotel that has been owned by the same family for over 1000 years. Some of our villas near Cortona are far smaller but as a rule they all enjoy a private pool and our concierge service can arrange extra maids and cooks should there be a need in any of our houses. Let us use our 21 years of experience and contact our sales team, put to us your preferences and we shall advise you which of our villas might be ideal for your needs.
