Situated in the valley below the town of Cortona proudly perched on the hillside just 1 km away, Villa Selene was originally the country residence of a local noble family. It is composed of a 19th Century villa, No 371 Selene 6, and two separated cottages fully restored, No 373 Selene Winery and Selene Lemon, described here. In the grounds of the estate is a lovely swimming pool (9m x 4m) enjoying a pretty view of the countryside and surrounded by lawns and mature gardens with majestic cypress trees, colourful plants and secluded spots for relaxing and enjoying the peace and tranquillity.
Selene Lemon, which originally housed the villas delicately scented lemon trees for storage in the winter, has also been recently renovated and still retains many original characteristics such as the beamed ceilings and cotto floors. Its’ living room has a sitting area with settee and armchair, dining table and chairs, kitchen area and there is a double bedroom and shower room. Both the living room and bedroom have lovely arched glass patio doors opening directly onto the terrace at the front of the cottage.
