One of the great things about Villa Grazia is that it works for groups of all sizes. The main farmhouse is divided into two apartments that can be rented separately or joined together for larger groups. Gelsi and Ginestre each sleep six, with an extra sofabed in Ginestre that can sleep two additional guests. A separate cottage, Girasoli, sleeps two with additional sleeping space for two more in a loft (best for children). Each accommodation has its own entrance, private patio for dining al fresco, and separate access to the swimming pool.

The grounds and gardens are beautiful, with a large swimming pool (open 9am-8pm) and a fish pond. A private chapel is sheltered in a small wood on the estate, and another stretch of land is cultivated with grape vines and olive trees. Although there is a train station nearby in Terontola, guests staying at Villa Grazia will need to rent a car.

Minutes from the Umbrian border, Cortona is the setting of Frances Mayes' "Under the Tuscan Sun." Filled with the spirit of its Etruscan heritage, its winding streets are lined with lovely shops and restaurants. Cortona, as a cittá d'arte ("city of art"), hosts a variety of cultural events and festivals through the year. Nearby are Montepulciano, Montalcino, Cetona, Arezzo, and Chiusi. Access to Florence and Siena to the north, as well as Rome to the south, is easy by rail or by the A1 highway.

Villa Grazia is well located for touring both Tuscany and Umbria. Its charming owners live in Florence and spend weekends in their private villa on the estate. They enjoy welcoming guests to their property and can help organize trips or museum visits as well as make restaurant reservations. (If you are lucky, you may be invited to visit their private garden.)

When you arrive, you will find a Welcome Basket waiting for you, with everything you will need for breakfast the following morning. There is a wonderful large supermarket in neighboring Camuccia that is open on Sunday mornings, so there is no need to rush out for groceries when you arrive.
