From here you have an extraordinary view over the immense plain of the Val di Chiana and Lake Trasimeno, bordered on the horizon by the peaks of Monte Amiata and Monte Cetona: a unique landscape, composed of green hills, cultivated fields and little ancient villages, which the magnificent sunsets reveal in all their glory. In Tuscany, but just a stone's throw from Umbria, this residence will prove the perfect departure point for visiting the many places of artistic interest within the range of just a few kilometres: art cities such as Siena, Arezzo and Perugia, picturesque villages (Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Castiglione del Lago, Radda and Gaiole in Chianti) and the fascinating spa towns in the area. Services and shops for basic needs, in Tavarnelle and Cortona, are just a short drive away.

Interior Casa Maria Laura has two floors built on terraced ground, thus allowing direct outside access to the first floor rooms as well. On the ground floor a large French window leads directly into the spacious living area, consisting of a built-in kitchen, dining table, pantry and sitting room. From here you come to a small hallway with one double bedroom served by a bathroom with shower, and to a short corridor onto which open a double bedroom and a twin bedroom (with joinable beds) sharing a bathroom with shower. An internal staircase leads up to the first floor, consisting of a double bedroom with direct access to the garden via a French window, a sitting room and a bathroom with shower. Under a portico on one side of the house, and adjacent to a brick structure with wood oven and barbecue, is the laundry area.
Park Entering the front gate of Casa Maria Laura you come immediately to the parking area (for 3/4 car places), located conveniently close to the main entrance. From here the marvellous garden around the house opens out, tended to with great passion and perfectly set into the harmony of shapes and colours of the surrounding territory. The park, completely fenced-in for about one hectare, extends over terraced surfaces along the side of a hill with, in the background, the green hills of Cortona and, at the highest level, a vast expanse of olive trees ideal for strolling around in. The flowering vegetation around the house is a riot of colour and perfume, pots of geraniums and lemon trees, oleanders, fruit trees and many bushes of rosemary and lavender framing the many set-up outdoor areas: the beautiful pool in the centre of the garden, a delightful gazebo with sitting area in a nice panoramic position, the play area with ping pong table and swing, a lounge area just outside the first floor sitting room and, finally, two spacious areas for alfresco meals with wood stove and brick-built barbecue.
Swimming Pool From the house, a short stone path across the manicured lawn takes us to the centre of the garden with the large, south-facing rectangular pool, equipped with Roman steps and diving board and open from the last Saturday in April until the first Saturday in October. The pool has PVC lining, a stone border, internal and external lighting and measures 6 x 14 m with the depth ranging from 1.20 to 2.30 m. It has chlorine purification and a solar outdoor shower. Around the pool are sunbeds, deck chairs, umbrellas and a panoramic gazebo set up as a sitting area with sofa and armchairs.
