Overview

With 80 square meters (840 square feet) of floor space, this charming yet spacious apartment is designed to accommodate 2 people, plus an occasional guest, in comfort.

It is accessed directly from a private ground floor street entrance in the San Domenico area of Cortona. There is ample metered parking space nearby (in the street above the house), plus a free car parking lot further downhill. Outside the apartment guests walk up a flight of stone steps and then directly into Cortona in just 2 minutes or can stroll in the opposite direction into the beautiful parterre avenue and gardens which is a pedestrian-only area also suitable for small children. From the start of the Parterre gardens one can walk or jog for 3 miles along this beautiful panoramic route that circuits the entire Cortona hillside, including passing by the Villa Bramasole property owned by Frances Mayes.

The apartment has been designed with real love by the artist-owner and it offers beauty as well as all the necessary furniture and furnishings with a mixture of some newly-restored antiques, high quality fixtures and fittings, brand new kitchen furniture and cooking equipment, quality ceramic dining crockery with antique English cutlery and some original paintings and decorative items as seen in photos.

What is most noticeable about this apartment is that it offers more space and beauty than a normal vacation rental. Cortona is a marvelous small art city that has festivals during the summer and fall and easy access to Florence or also Rome by rail.
