Surrounded by pine trees, a gated driveway leads to the central courtyard of Tenuta La Contessa, signified by a bronze statue in the centre. Composed of the beautifully restored and designed main villa and adjacent farmhouse, Tenuta La Contessa accommodates up to 20 guests. Built in the 1800s, the property is located nearby the medieval town of Cortona and enjoys magnificent views of the Tuscan countryside and the town itself. Tenuta La Contessa is a luxurious property providing carefully selected interiors that perfectly create a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. The extensive gardens feature a large swimming pool with Roman steps, sunbeds and umbrella, comfortable outdoor sitting and eating areas as well as a BBQ facility.
Both, the villa and the farmhouse, sleep up to 10 guests each. Both houses are lovingly decorated and invite to a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The villa is divided into three levels, the farmhouse into two levels.
