Villa La Pietra is a stylish and classic Tuscan villa. It can sleep up to 10 people, 4 of them in the beautiful separated dependance. The complex has 5 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms and a swimming-pool with view.
Villa La Pietra is an old and stylish farmhouse, whose origins date back to the beginnings of 1600.
The whole house measures 564 sqm, has been recently renovated and it is located in the area of Cortona and Castiglion Fiorentino, near Arezzo, Chianti and Siena as well.
Until 2002 the property was a ruin,... the vestiges of an antique furnace... Today the villa is a magnificent example of the Tuscan classic architecture.
The stylish interior combines antiques with typical Tuscan furniture: each room is equipped with air conditioning, heating and satellite TV. There are 2 kitchens (one in the main villa and another in the dependance) that are fully equipped, representing an excellent place to enjoy cooking lessons. The wide outdoor park (13.000 sqm !) will attract you with its natural aromas: cypresses, elms, rosemary, lavender, more than 400 olive trees and flowers. The heated pool offers unique views of the valley: Monte Amiata, Val di Chiana and of course the famous rolling hills. There are also a soccer field and a basketball court, perfect for entertaining young people, as well as an indoor games room.
