Casa Maria Laura (Tuscany – Cortona – Arezzo)
A typical Tuscan landscape, rich in natural appeal and inimitable historical and artistic allusions, is the idyllic setting for Casa Maria Laura, a pretty country house in stone and plaster, ideal for a holiday immersed in the quiet and relaxing atmosphere of the countryside around the prestigious little town of Cortona. The simple cosy rooms are all air conditioned, with wifi connection. The comfortable bedrooms and the large living area, completed by a fully-equipped kitchen in stone and marble, overlook a lush manicured garden, a splendid natural terrace covered by the foliage of the olive trees that grow in a large part of the park, and completed by many seating areas and a beautiful swimming pool set in a central and super panoramic position. From here you have an extraordinary view over the immense plain of the Val di Chiana and Lake Trasimeno, bordered on the horizon by the peaks of Monte Amiata and Monte Cetona: a unique landscape, composed of green hills, cultivated fields and little ancient villages, which the magnificent sunsets reveal in all their glory. In Tuscany, but just a stone’s throw from Umbria, this residence will prove the perfect departure point for visiting the many places of artistic interest within the range of just a few kilometres: art cities such as Siena, Arezzo and Perugia, picturesque villages (Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Castiglione del Lago, Radda and Gaiole in Chianti) and the fascinating spa towns in the area. Services and shops for basic needs, in Tavarnelle and Cortona, are just a short drive away.
