Overview

Photos and Description of the Cortona vacation apartment rental

Personalized service at 3 story townhouse, great views, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

Cortona Panoramic derives its name from its roof terrace and rooms that feature spectacular panoramic views over the roof tops of Cortona and on to sweeping vistas of the Val di Chiana and Lake Trasimeno.

This three level townhouse is located inside the city walls of the Etruscan town of Cortona. It is just two minutes by foot from Via Nazionale, the main street of Cortona, offering a real sense of living as a Cortonese. You will enjoy quiet days and peaceful nights with no traffic noise as the townhouse is situated at the junction of two pedestrian only lanes.

The private entrance leads into a spacious entry hall. Off to the right there is a beautiful sitting room with an ancient artesian stone well with crystal clear water. The well is said to bring good luck to the residents of the house. Also on this floor are a full bathroom with tub and a laundry facility.

The next level is reached by a unique and beautiful semi-circular stone staircase. This level is comprised of a large (300+ sq.ft.) living room and dining area with beautiful views. In addition to comfortable furnishings, there is a TV, radio, CD player, and an all-zone DVD player. In the adjacent room is a fully functional kitchen with modern appliances and amenities, plus both morning sun and a nice view.

The semi-circular stone staircase then leads up to a second floor where there are two bedrooms. Wake up in the morning to an expansive view over the Val di Chiana including the northern end of Lago Traisimeno. In addition to wood beam ceilings there are ancient cotta floor tiles. The main bedroom has a queen bed, a dresser, a desk and a comfortable chair. The second bedroom has two single beds, a dresser and a comfortable chair. On this level there is the second, independent bathroom with window and shower.

The stone staircase then leads to the roof level giving access to the private panoramic terrace (~100 sq.ft.) with a service room, including a sink and a small, second refrigerator. This is the perfect place for sun bathing, enjoying a meal or glass of wine as the sun sets, or simply surveying Cortona and the surrounding countryside.

All of the rooms in the house, except the traditional Tuscan room adjacent to the entry, are bright and enjoy truly inspiring views of the Cortona rooftops and the valley below.

The town of Cortona itself is full of restaurants and trattorias, all an easy stroll from the house. The beautiful, pedestrians-only 1km-long Parterre park, lined with shady lime trees (built by Napoleon’s troops in 1800), is also nearby, great for jogging and peaceful walks.

Personalized Service: On the day of your arrival, you will be met by our Scottish property manager who lives in Cortona. Oliver knows everything about the workings of the townhouse. He will walk you through the house, explain how everything works, and describe where the many shops, restaurants, and cafes are. He will answer any questions you might have and provide any tips you might need. Oliver will also provide his phone number so that during your stay, if anything comes up, you will find a friendly voice on the line.
