Villa Per Due, Tuscany, Italy
Located just outside of the historic town of Cortona in the peaceful countryside of Tuscany’s Val di Chiana, this guest house resides on a large property shared with two villas that combine the classic style and coziness of the Tuscan countryside with a simple but invigorating modern redesign.
Nestled into the hills with panoramic views overlooking the countryside and surrounding villages, the property is the product of a Parisian couple who came back again and again until they found and realized their dream of making it home. Designed and constructed entirely on their own, the exteriors have been for the most part preserved and are cheerful and traditional while the interiors have been entirely reorganized with contemporary minimalism and comfort. With bright monochromatic design and modern Italian furnishings and decor (as well as several personally designed pieces), the house is fresh and bright and features an open plan living and dining area off of the fully equipped kitchen along with one bedroom and bath for two with garden and pool views. The private terrace features alfresco dining for two and lounge areas with lovely garden views. The gardens have also been restored with extensive stone work, mature olive, cypress and fig trees from where you’ll enjoy a very private and peaceful holiday experience.
Wifi throughout, satellite cable flat screen TV and stereo audio system. Housekeeping and laundry facilities. Child’s highchair available. Off street parking.
Located in the countryside just a short drive from central Cortona, this section of Tuscany is the main artistic and cultural hub of the Val di Chiana. One of the oldest hilltop towns in the region, Cortona offers the iconic views and classic Romanesque beauty of Tuscany. Ideally situated, you are within less than one hour drive from Florence, the Chianti area and the wine capitals of Montepulciano and Montalcino, Siena, Pienza, Lake Trasimeno in Umbria, Perugia and Assisi. It doesn’t get much better than this.
