Three Bedroom Split Level First Floor Apartment Cortona
Iuno is a lovely split level apartment in a beautiful stone house on the L’Etrusca estate, ideally situated in the valley below the famous town of Cortona. The house is surrounded by immaculately kept gardens where there are tables and chairs for dining al fresco and there is a large swimming pool with a paved sun terrace bordered by lawns and olive groves.
The L’Etrusca estate consists of 2 beautiful stone houses which have been lovingly restored and now form 4 spacious apartments. The houses are set around a beautiful garden with lawns and filled with flowers, where each apartment has an area with table and chairs for dining al fresco and nestled next to the olive grove in a secluded position is the pretty swimming pool (14m x 7m).
Apartment Iuno is situated in the main farmhouse and is on two floors. It is comfortably furnished in typical Tuscan style and original features such as beamed ceilings and terracotta have been retained. External steps lead to the apartments’ entrance which opens onto the first floor living room. The living room is spacious and has a fully equipped kitchen area, dining table and chairs, fireplace and sitting area with settee (which converts to a bed on request to accommodate an extra person). Also on this floor there is also a double bedroom and a shower/w.c. Steps lead to the apartments’ second floor where there are two further bedrooms (one with twin beds and one with a double and single bed) and a second shower room. The thoughtful owner has added the modern comforts of dishwashers, washing machines and satellite televisions, and apartment Iuno also has air conditioning (payable locally).
Its location is perfect for visiting the famous region of Southern Tuscany. Beautiful Cortona with its interesting Etruscan origins is only 5km away and a joy to explore, whilst the towns of Montepulciano, renowned for its excellent wine, and Pienza, for its pecorino cheese are both close by. In addition, Arezzo, infamous for its Piero della Francesca frescoes in its cathedral and Siena with its shell shaped Piazza del Campo square are both less than an hours’ drive.
The treasures of the region of Umbria with its famous hill towns of Perugia and Assisi to name but a few are also within easy driving distance. Lake Trasimeno is also very close and an interesting place to visit, it has beaches, sailing facilities, and ferry services to its islands, one of which is a natural park with lovely walks and the other ‘Isola Maggiore’ which is famous for the local women who crochet lace on the streets, an art said to be of Irish origin. The main motorway link is only 10km away, making also Rome and Florence easily accessible.
Parking is in the grounds of the estate.
