The Residence in The Valley of Etruscan Princes Il Casale, a residence out of a building of the year 500 sits in front of the towers, the domes the green and the sky of Cortona, a city of ancient origins, often visited by the ex French president Mitterand, and today by the University of Georgia (UGA). During august it is the chosen location for the National Antiques Showroom, where for the occasion, in the old rooms of Palazzo Casali and Palazzo Vagnotti, all the most important Italian exhibitors gather. The rural complex is situated nearby the San Pietro a Cegliolo neighbourhood. Today it is a very comfortable and accommodating Residence, hidden in the silence of a spectacular and suggestive creation of the nature. It is laid out around a huge garden and the mother tower which overlooks the main building, which is also the oldest and still maintains the original features, like the double slope roof and the external stairway with a wide landing for the middle floor access. Behind one of the complexes’ wings, finds room on over an hectare of green grass, the swimming pool which is for guests use only. Built with the most modern and efficient techniques its size is 16 by 8 meters. Furnished with deck chairs, comfortable pillows, umbrellas, showers and everything to help relax and fun for the kids, while watching Cortona’s skyline. The garden is one of the most beautiful features of the complex. Very well grown and cared, shines with plenty of different flowers varieties and plants which give colour to the spectacular green English carpet. Here you’ll find the tables and chairs for breakfast and dinner in a relaxing environment. The residence is made of 10 apartments, of which 8 sleep 4, one sleep 3, and one sleep 2. They all provide a stylish and elegant solution, floors and ceilings made with old cotto tiles and antique furniture aging around the year ‘800. Everything carefully planned and put together in respect of the most modern way of living. The apartments have two bedrooms, some of which with two double beds, some other with one double bed and a room with single beds, bathroom with shower and the living room with a cooking corner (fire spots, electrical oven, fridge, double sink). The general feeling is of a relaxing and “antique” luxurious environment. The bedrooms are especially thought in the way they’ve been furnished. Antique beds (‘700 and ‘800), carpets who match the period of the furniture, practical closets also from the ‘800 style. Everything is planned to match with the floors and the ceilings. Apartment sleep 4: two bedrooms with two double beds or one double bed and two single beds, bathroom with shower, living room/kitchen fully equipped. Apartment sleep 3: one big bedroom with a double bed and a single bed, two bathrooms with shower, living room/kitchen fully equipped. Apartment sleep 2: one bedroom with a double bed, one bathroom with shower, living room/kitchen fully equipped. Possibility to have additional beds on request. SERVICES: Every apartment has its own external space furnished with garden chairs and table, and inside provides Satellite TV, air conditioning/heating direct phone line. WI-FI CONNECTION

Residence Il Casale is an old farm house renovated into a quaint boutique style lodging that is in an idyllic setting at the base of the historic city of Cortona. There are several units of different sizes that accommodate couples to families. You can even rent out the entire place for maybe family reunions or wedding parties. There is a rather large pool on the property, which is incredibly refreshing on a hot summer day. Our unit was a nice 2 bedroom, 1 bath located above a spacious eat in kitchen and living room. The antique furnishings, beamed ceilings, brick & stone work, and nice decor transport you in time. Management is gracious and helpful. We had one issue that Gianluca immediately addressed upon hearing about it and did everything possible to get the situation fixed. The only problems found were that the unit was not stocked very well. There is a kitchen but only one pot and no pans. It’s a little hard to prepare breakfast with just one pot. There are no basic amenities usually found in a kitchen such as salt and pepper. They try very hard to be good stewards of the land and ask you to separate rubbish, yet there’s only 1 bag supplied, making it hard to separate waste. Lastly The couches are way too low making it difficult for older people to get up or down. Other than the issues mentioned above, this is a great place to stay. Thanks again to Gianluca and Yevgenia.

The first night we stayed with my wife and two kids, our aparment as well as one more were broken into and private property was stolen. The owners did not seem to be over occupied about the fact, nor keen on covering our losses. Still in the legal process of getting compensated by hotel or their insurers. Besides that, the property itself was very nice, but we moved out after the first fatal night.

Lovely setting with a beautiful, immaculate pool and surroundings. . The apartments are very well kept and historic. My only criticism was with booking.com who we booked with as their property description is inaccurate. It says additional toilet and none of the 2 bedroom apartments have one. Our apartment was changed by the venue at the last minute from the one we booked and Alessandro was very helpful, the bedrooms were fine, although the one with single beds was small. Bathroom was fine and clean and shower worked well although a bit on the small side. Residence is well placed for getting around and close to Cortona (about 8 mins to drive) we were pleased we stayed here rather than in the town centre as having an area to sit outside and relax is great..

Some people dream about a 2nd home in Toscany. Our House in Tuscany is situated on the estate of Vittorio at the foot of Cortona, only 10 min. by car. Almost every year we want TO BE THERE. Because if the atmosphere, the beautifull apartments, nice swimming pool, birds singing, started early in the morning by the nightingale. Specially recommended for family-reunions. The hosts Vittorio and Allessandra became friends. A beautifull place to be! To read your favourite books, to paint, to cook with friends. Just beleave in your Tuscany Dream!
