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, 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.

The grounds and gardens are beautiful, with a large swimming pool that is 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.

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.

    Just a quick note to tell you that Ginestre was fabulous! Every single person in our group loved it. Our hosts were delightful and always very willing to help. We wouldn't hesitate to go back again.

    Thanks for the wonderful recommendation of Villa Grazia-Le Ginestre in Tuscany this past week - We so enjoyed the accommodations, the beautiful grounds and pool, as well as touring the beautiful countryside of Tuscany and Umbria. The owners could not be more helpful and accommodating for our stay. The restaurants for which she made the dinner reservations were very good (La Grotta and La Buccea, especially). It was very helpful that the owners were on the premises for questions re: the villa and touring suggestions. Thanks again!
