Nunzia’s House

>  Description | Terms

The comfortable holiday house, converted in the last few years from a working farmhouse, accommodates 11 people.  It nestles amongst the olive groves and trees on a hill opposite the ancient Etruscan city of Cortona and has enchanting views over the Val di Chiana and the surrounding wooded hills.

 

               
       

The accommodation comprises:

  • kitchen-living room, with open fire, large fridge-freezer, 4-ring gas hob -- fully equipped for 6 people
  • large double bedroom (single beds) with direct access to a big terrace
  • large en suite bathroom (shower, washbasin, WC, bidet, storage space)
  • double bedroom (single beds) with access to a separate terrace, also with en suite bathroom (shower, washbasin, wc, storage space -- a third bed can be added if required
  • private garden and shady terraces, with tables, chairs, chaises longues, barbecue, etc.
  • free-standing swimming pool (8m x 3.5m x 1.2m) for your exclusive use.

The house can be centrally-heated (solar heating plus wood-burning fire) at all seasons. 

All household linen (sheets, towels, tea towels, etc.) is provided

A radio/CD player/cassettes and a video player are available, together with a collection of French, English, Italian and Dutch books and documentation on the surrounding region, events, etc.

Food and other supplies can easily be obtained from either Cortona or Camucia (supermarkets, butchers, bakers, greengrocers).  The Cortona supermarket and greengrocer will deliver.  

By prior arrangement, we can provide dinner (aperitif, starter, main course, dessert, drinks included) in the main house further up the hill at Quercia Verde. The cuisine we serve is usually Italo/Belgian, prepared with local products.  The cost is €26 (Euros) per person.

Many holiday activities are available close at hand:  a riding school at the bottom of the hill (2kms); tennis courts and a large swimming pool not far away (5kms).  We can arrange rambles with our donkeys and, of course, there are wonderful walks to be taken, and the whole local area to be discovered. 

The house is accessible from either Cortona or the main SS71 Arezzo to Perugia road via a 1.5 km unsurfaced local road.
