A charming Tuscan cottage designed, decorated and furnished by 'Giusi', the Italian cook who often helps friend Frances Mayes prepare splendid luncheons and dinner parties at Villa Bramasole, near Cortona. Giusi is mentioned and photographed in Frances Mayes' books "Under The Tuscan Sun", "Bella Tuscany", "In Tuscany", and most recently her illustrated book about Tuscan living style, "Bringing Tuscany Home". Located in the grounds of Giusi and Dario's farm in the hills to the east of Cortona, the cottage faces west towards the setting sun, overlooking the beautiful Val d'Esse at the mouth of which stands Cortona, 6 miles away, on a hilltop dominating the plain of the Valdichiana. Giusi and Dario live in their stone farmhouse house a little further uphill with his ageing parents and their two sons. Although they lead an active farming life, the privacy of guests staying in the cottage is guaranteed and Giusi or Dario will not disturb you, unless of course you need their help or advice.
