Eastern Tuscany, Arezzo, and Cortona, Italy
Villa Serena, Serenella, Limonaia
An aristocratic villa built during the middle 800s between the enchanting green, and the sacred silence and the infinite valley. The green, the position and the elegance made the key elements of the main complex (6 beds) and the two depandances “Villa Serenella” and “Villa Limonaia”, two beds each.
Villa Serena is situated in the Cortona hill side, where the woods of the mountains fade into olive trees surrounded by pine trees and cypresses. Protected by the high city walls, Villa Serena (250 square meters) overlooks the topmost of the huge tower of the “Palazzone”, an old rinascimental palace in front of the vast Valdichiana. The valley is surrounded by the Appennino’s mountains skyline, the massive cone of the mount Amiata, the peaks of mount Cetona, and the hills which reflect on the silver Lake Trasimeno. The elegance, along with the natural view, is possible thanks to the finely furnished interiors of the Villa.
Villa Serena is laid out over two floors. The first floor opens to a very large living room, with a massive fireplace, a large kitchen with supplemental addition of dish washer and freezer and a service bathroom without tub and shower. On the second floor you’ll find 3 bedrooms with double beds all furnished with important antique pieces and beds, two bathrooms of which one has a bathtub. Externally you will find a big natural terrace with a spectacular view of the valley and the Lake Trasimeno. A table for breakfasts and dinners is there nearby the path which leads to the swimming pool. WI-FI CONNECTION ONLY FOR VILLA SERENA
