Casa ai Cipressi is a comfortable country house in Tuscany with private swimming pool set in an extremely panoramic position. The views can be enjoyed from many comfortable spots in the garden, equipped by the owners to enable travellers to fully enjoy their holiday here and get away from the 'usual' daily life. Cortona can be reached by walking through a lovely 45-minute country path. This charming village (10 minutes drive) is set on a hillside overlooking placid Lake Trasimeno and became a popular destination for travelers after Francis Mayes' “Under the Tuscan Sun” book - and subsequent film - came out. Lake Trasimeno can be reached by car in less than 20 minutes.
Cortona makes a great home base because clients get to live the small-town experience while enjoying the Tuscan Region. From Cortona clients can easily reach the major art cities of Siena and Arezzo (40 minutes), the well-known cheese and wine towns Pienza and Montepulciano (even closer), and two different thermal baths at Chianchiano or Rapolano. Furthermore, there is an extensive list of small towns in the area worth a visit such as San Giovanni d'Asso and its truffle museum, Castiglione d'Orcia, Buonconvento, or Castiglione Fiorentino.
Past clients have particularly enjoyed dining under a large pergola where there is a large built-in barbecue, having a glass of wine at sunset at the sitting area in front of the house, as well as relaxing by the swimming pool which is on a different level from the house or playing at ping pong (table tennis) under the shade.
