We are in Tuscany, one of Italy’s most popular regions worldwide, in the town of Cortona, which is famous for its artistic beauty and is a renowned tourist destination. This elegant period apartment is located in the heart of the historic town centre, with its windows overlooking the rooftops and the valley below.
Cortona is an ideal destination for lovers of art, food, wine and nature. Paintings by Fra Angelico and Signorelli, kept in the town’s Art Gallery, are a major attraction, as are the breathtaking views of the Tuscan landscape from Cortona, 600 metres above. It is a people friendly town but it also has an international calling and is home to Festivals and cultural events. Its strategic geographical position, on the border between Tuscany and Umbria, means that you can easily visit numerous towns of considerable artistic and cultural interest, such as Florence, Siena, Perugia, Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Assisi, Lake Trasimeno, Orvieto and Spoleto.
Description of buildings
The apartment is on the third floor of one of the most beautiful buildings dating back to from the town’s eighteenth century nobility. It consists of 260 gross sqm of living area, as well as a tower/library of approximately 10 sqm, a useful drying-room of about 12 sqm and several storerooms/lofts.
Access to the apartment starts from a large living room with windows overlooking the rooftops of the town and this leads to the other rooms. In the right wing, there is a kitchen, a lounge with a fireplace, a bedroom, a small study and a bathroom. The left wing consists of a lounge with an eighteenth-century marble fireplace, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a study, with access to an attic room upstairs, used as a drying room, and some small storerooms.
Tucked away between the doors of a fitted wardrobe you will find access to the tower, which is currently used as a small library, rising up above the building and overlooking the whole town and the valley.
