Set in the beautiful countryside of the hills of Cortona and just a few minutes from this splendid little town, pearl of the Aretine Val di Chiana, the old imposing watchtower stands on the side of a 369 m high hill, covered by the silvery foliage of a sea of olive trees and with a never-ending view from the pool stretching over the winding green hills of the Val d'Esse, an area east of Cortona, rich in churches, archaeological sites and Renaissance villas, and along the river of the same name flowing towards Umbria. The charm of this original Tuscan farmhouse lives on in the splendid restoration that has given new light to the outside in exposed Cortona stone and to the inside, modernized to guarantee you a holiday in top comfort.
