PRIVATE STRUCTURE. La Loggetta is a little typical Tuscan stone house which dates from 1700’s. The renovation has been totally overseen by the owners themselves, two young architects, active supporters of the modern eco-friendly architecture. During the renovation the owners had reused many original antique pieces like the stones for external finish, the wooden ceilings beams, and the handmade “cotto” pavement. The house is situated in a panoramic position in the Tuscan countryside and it is very easy to reachable being only one kilometer from the famous village of Cortona. The favorable position of the property also offers the possibility to visit many cultural centers like Siena, Firenze, Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi and Lake Trasimeno.

Interior The house is built on two levels and a loft conversion. The ground floor is composed of a dining room with fireplace, kitchen, bedroom with double bed (made up of two singles) and a bathroom with shower. The first floor is reachable in two ways, either via an internal staircase from the ground floor or an exterior stone staircase. The first floor is made up of a living room with fireplace, a bedroom with double bed (made up of two singles), a double bedroom (with joinable beds) and a bathroom with shower. From the first floor a wood staircase leads us to the loft conversion, used as a TV room with a single sofa bed and service bathroom.
Park The house is surrounded by 300 square meters of garden, which has be finished to even the smaller details. Even though the garden is relatively small it hosts a charming swimming pool which gives all the privacy and comfort for a relaxing holiday and a gazebo equipped with table, chairs and barbeque corner which is the ideal place for breakfasts and pleasant outside dinners.

The best villa we have ever stayed in. The rooms are not only well appointed but well maintained and beautiful.The privacy and view are exceptional and only minutes walk from the most stunning town.
Also the owners are the most gorgeous people one could meet. So if you need to cool a little , the pool comes very handy also. Barb and al.
