Villa Rustica is a lovely Tuscan Manor house and cottage enclosed in spacious grounds. In the hills between Arezzo and Cortona this spacious villa is comfortably furnished in country style and has an inviting atmosphere. There plenty of space for dining al fresco and relaxing in the gardens or by the swimming pool, and the local village of Marciano is within walking distance.
Villa Rustica has been fully restored and is now a beautiful holiday home. The furnishings are in keeping with Tuscan tradition including some antique pieces and the modern comforts of satellite televisions, and internet access have also been added.
The ground floor of the villa has a large living room with settees, fireplace, satellite television and dining area with table and chairs and two fully equipped kitchens. On the same floor is a double bedroom and a shower room, both of which are suitable for disabled guests, a second double bedroom and a twin bedroom, both of which open outside, a bathroom with hydromassage bath and one with shower.
Stairs lead to the first floor which has three characteristic bedrooms, each with ensuite bathrooms, and there is a lovely terrace overlooking the garden. On the same floor are two suites, each with a double bedroom, shower room, and sitting area with settee (which convert to double beds on request). One of the suites also has a gallery floor above the sitting area where two extra children may be accommodated on request).
Close to the main villa is a separate ground floor cottage, also suitable for disabled guests, which consists of a double bedroom, shower room and kitchen which opens onto a garden terrace.
Surrounding the villa are spacious gardens with lawns, where there is a private swimming pool (14m x 7m). At the front and side of the villa are two large shaded terraces with barbecues.
