Villa Grazia is a traditional 17th-century Tuscan stone farmhouse, with beautiful grounds and gardens as well as 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. Buildings once used for olive oil production have been exquisitely converted into a residence, with two large apartments and a charming cottage. 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.

One of the great things about Villa Grazia is that is works for groups of all sizes. The main farmhouse can be rented as a whole to sleep 12 or seamlessly divided into two private apartments, Gelsi and Ginestre, each sleeping six; Ginestre has an extra sofabed for 2 additional guests. Girasoli, a separate cottage, sleeps 2+2. Each accommodation has a separate entrance, private patio for dining al fresco, and separate access to the pool.

The 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 at Villa Grazia, you will find a Welcome Basket, with everything you need for breakfast the following morning. The large supermarket in neighboring Camuccia is open on Sunday mornings, so there is no need to rush out for groceries when you arrive.
