Private Tuscan Farmhouse With 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths And 40" Salt-Water Pool

Casale Nicolo is a very special, stone-built farmhouse located a few kilometers from the lively and historic Etruscan hill town of Cortona in Tuscany. Originally a farmer’s house belonging to a larger estate, the main living area of the farmhouse dates to the 1600’s and retains many of its original features, including stone door surrounds, chestnut wood beams, handmade cotto tile floors and a large stone fireplace. The farmhouse is centered in a lovely gated, fenced and terraced garden surrounded by olive trees and offering complete privacy and quiet. A magnificent, centuries-old stone wall runs the length of the property and frames the view of the fields below. There is a large, 40′ x 20′ salt-water pool on its own terrace and a rose and wisteria covered pergola for outdoor dining.

The farmhouse has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, two of which are en suite and one with a full bathtub. Three bedrooms include queen-sized beds and the cozy, third floor bedroom has two twin beds and an en suite bath.

Other rooms include a comfortable, antique-filled living room with fireplace, a traditional, fully stocked kitchen with dishwasher, a small lounge area with TV and a stone dining room with fireplace. The farmhouse has lovely antiques and original artwork from the owner's travels around Italy. A broadband Wi-Fi network covers the house and grounds.

There are two neighborhood grocery stores and cafes within 15 minutes walking distance or 5 minutes by car from the property. Cortona can be reached in 10 minutes by car or 45 minutes on foot via a picturesque valley and ancient Roman foot path for those so inclined.

Additionally the owner can assist with arranging a multitude of local activities, including olive oil and wine tastings, tours of the olive press (frantoio), olive harvesting, private cooking lessons, horseback riding and historical tours.

The layout of the house and large, terraced grounds make it especially attractive for family gatherings, group events and parties. The owners can assist with recommendations for any catering or entertainment-related needs as well.

The property is located halfway between Florence and Rome, with each city approximately 1h 40m by train, and 10 minutes from the main rail line in Camucia. Many of the beautiful hill towns of Tuscany and Umbria, including Arezzo, Siena, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Perugia, Orvieto, Todi and Spoleto, can be reached from within 40 minutes to 1.5 hours by car or train, making Casale Nicolo the perfect location for both day trips and easy access to other regions in Italy.
