The “Casa Elena” vacation home is located in the heart of the landscape of the Valdichiana, where vine and olive cultivation date back to Etruscan times, about 6 miles away from the charming art town of Cortona. The farmhouse is a typical Tuscan country house which was recently restored, with full respect of the existing structures, and divided into four comfortable apartments (“Il Sole“, “La Luna“, “Le Stelle” and “Il Cielo“) each having an independent entrance.
“La Luna” and “Le Stelle” apartments are perfectly in keeping with the typical Tuscan style with exposed stonework walls, fireplace and Tuscan cotto floors whilst the third apartment is slightly more modern and yet warm and cozy. All apartments are roomy and well-lighted, fitted with colour TV, independent heating system and all comforts and furnished in keeping with the style of the farmhouse. All common facilities available to guests such as laundry-room, bbq grill and old-fashioned wood-burning-oven may be accessed from the large garden.
The 10 X 5 metre pool is open May through September.
The owners, who live nearby and often go to the farmhouse to take care of barnyard animals and the horse and the pony living in the area adjoining Casa Elena, will be more than glad to cater for any special request. We now have available bicycles that you can use to discover the Cortona’s countryside.
