Brimming with warmth and character, the villa has been beautifully restored and it's authentic 17th century origins sit comfortably alongside classic modern interiors, with Wi-Fi, air-conditioning and bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Villa Nocciola's spectacular location, just outside the walls of Cortona, affords it sweeping views of the surrounding countryside. Near to the Tuscany-Umbria border, a wealth of pretty villages lie close by awaiting exploration. Lake Trasimeno makes a pleasant day trip for watersports or nice lakeside walks.
The villa itself has a wealth of fabulous features, but the starting point for any description of the property has to be its location, a short walk up the hill into the crooked, cobblestone streets of one of Italy's most famous hill top towns, Cortona, which at 600m above sea level has sweeping views over vast swathes of countryside in all directions, as far as Lake Trasimeno and Mount Amiata in the Val d'Orcia. Such close access to Italian village life comes with the opportunity to dine at a choice of many delicious local restaurants and visit the treasure trove of historical churches and other features that can be found in the fabulous maze of streets. There's also the convenience of having a variety of facilities close at hand from grocery store and pharmacy to doctor's surgery and tennis court and most importantly for children of all ages, some excellent gelaterias. The very close-by train station is the perfect way of making day trips into Florence and Rome.
The villa itself has wonderful outdoor features including its swimming pool and heated Jacuzzi, alfresco dining area charcoal grill and pizza oven. The gardens are dreamy and beautifully looked after with white roses and lavender surrounded by cypress trees and spectacular umbrella pines. The large travertine pool, heated Jacuzzi pool, bocce pitch and table tennis under the pergola provide hours of entertainment. Inside there's Wi-Fi throughout as well as a large pool table and cinema room.
