Condo/Apartment
La Lombarda, our beautifully restored traditional 18th century Tuscan farmhouse is ideally placed within easy reach of Tuscany and Umbria's wealth of art and cultural centres. Cortona, nestling in its hillside just 20 minutes away, with its medieval cobbled lanes is a delightful and atmospheric town. Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza, Perugia and Assisi are all within a hours scenic drive. The farmhouse is set in a rural landscape and is an oasis to which to return to after a days sightseeing. Relax by the pool and soak up the sun or sit under the jasmine covered pergola with a good book and a glass of local wine taking in the view of rolling countryside. Il Bocciolo, The Rosebud, is a spacious and comfortable apartment that dates from the late 1700's and was originally a stable.

Il Bocciolo, The Rosebud, is a spacious and comfortable apartment that dates from the late 1700's and was originally a stable. The lounge area has two large sofas one of which converts to a 5' double bed, TV, DVD and some books for your enjoyment. Through the original brick arch, where the cows would stand and rub their backs, is the well equipped kitchen with its old wooden beams. Open and airy there is a dining table and chairs, a fridge/freezer, oven and hob and a washing machine. A door in the lounge opens to a small inner hall, the shower room and the romantic twin/double bedroom with its pretty view of Cortona nestling in its hillside. From the lounge french doors open onto your own private patio. Enjoy your breakfast under the morning sun and then linger at the end of the day with a glass of wine under starlit skies. More

About the neighbourhood
From its lofty perch, picturesque and historic Cortona an Etruscan town founded around 700b.c., much of the Valdichiana and Lake Trasimeno may be surveyed: the mountains of Cetona and Amiata, and the town of Montepulciano to the south. Cortona's excellent Etruscan museum houses fascinating and priceless relics including the 4th century B.C. 'Etruscan Chandelier'. The Diocese Museum has many works of significant artistic value, the masterpiece being Fra Angelico's 'Annuciation'. Hidden in a cleft of Monte Sant' Egidio lies 'Le Celle' founded by Saint Francis in 1211. This peaceful, spiritual place is where the saint spent some time and where you can still see his cell.
