About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Val di Chiana, minutes from the picturesque hilltop town of Cortona, is 'Casa bel Posto', a tranquil and charming Tuscan farmhouse conveniently located in southern Tuscany. Casa bel Posto boasts the perfect Tuscan getaway with the best of both worlds; located in the heart of the countryside with all the benefits of having a lively historical city nearby.

Casa bel Posto is secluded, completely fenced in a spacious yard with a delightful view of Cortona, has a considerably large swimming pool and is surrounded by small farms where you often find fields of vibrant sunflowers in the summer. The well-equipped 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment sleeps 6 comfortably and is located on the entire bottom floor of the farmhouse with its own private entrance.

The Casa bel Posto vacation apartment has been designed with style and convenience in mind; each bedroom is individually themed and artistically decorated to make you feel at home in a 'B&B' like setting. The kitchen comes fully equipped with appliances, cooking utensils, pots and pans, dishes, silverware, etc.; everything necessary to make you feel at home. The dining room, located in the same large open plan room as the kitchen, has a sizable rustic wood table that can easily seat ten people, perfect for entertaining. The living room is comfortable and spacious and thanks to the very thick stone walls the apartment stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter. There is a brand new Whirlpool washing machine in the rental unit. Bedding, towels, electricity and heating are included in the weekly rental rates, mid-week cleaning service can be arranged for a minimal fee. As additional amenities for our guests we also offer complimentary internet (Wi-Fi) which is accessible both from inside the apartment and outside on the property, even by the pool.

We highly encourage our guests to make use of the large yard where you can enjoy meals, dining al fresco at the outdoor dining table (seating 12), under the protective cover of umbrella pine trees while enjoying views of Cortona up on the hillside. There is also a charcoal barbeque on-site for guest use. The 24 ft. x 48 ft. swimming pool, open from May – October, is a cool refreshing break from the summer heat. Poolside you will find lounging chairs, inflatable mattresses and plenty of noodles to ensure maximum relaxation in the peaceful countryside setting. Two bicycles are available to guests for explorations of the nearby local farming community and rural country roads.

The delightful town of Cortona is just a few minutes drive from Casa bel Posto, perched dramatically on a hillside looking out over the Val di Chiana and Lago Trasimeno. Cortona has picturesque little streets, enchanting churches, museums, local shops and entertainment and well as a wide variety of delectable restaurants.

We will be happy to give you recommendations and help make reservations for local dining and give you advice on what to do or see in the area. We also operate Journey to Enlightenment Tours, a small custom-designed tour company specializing in the local area and can arrange personalized tours for you upon request.

Casa bel Posto is centrally located in southern Tuscany, 2.5 hours north of Rome, a little over an hour south of Florence, 45 minutes from Siena, 20 minutes from Montepulciano and Perugia and in easy reach of numerous other beautiful Tuscan towns. The property is just a few minutes from Camucia, where the main train station for Cortona is located, a stop on the Rome – Florence train line.

Ciao and thank you for inquiring about staying at Agriturismo Casa bel Posto!

We have tried to list detailed information on our website www.casabelposto.com, but you may be interested to know how the three bedrooms and two bathrooms are furnished; two bedrooms have king size beds that can also be made into two large single beds and one bedroom has a queen size bed. One of the bathrooms is located within one of the king size bedrooms, the other bathroom is located in the hallway between all of the bedrooms. There also is a small couch in the living room that pulls out into a small single bed that would fit two small children or one adult.

Our pool is ridiculously large and very enjoyable during lazy summer days and boasts a beautiful view of Cortona. During warmer months we have a hammock out under a circle of umbrella pines and afternoon naps are very enjoyable both there and by the pool. There also is a barbecue and large outdoor dining table and chairs for meals "al fresco", or you can enjoy lounging under the pergola. There is no TV but we don't think you will miss it; we do offer wifi in case you still need to be connected to the world. We are surrounded by small farms but are less than a 10 minute drive from the "centro storico" (historic center) of Cortona. My husband and I, our very friendly labradors Murphy & Stella and Guinness the cat live upstairs on the property and are more than happy to help you with local information, sightseeing advice as well as restaurant and local wine recommendations.
