Agriturismo Le Terre dei Cavalieri (Cortona)
Eastern Tuscany, Arezzo, and Cortona, Italy
Dear guests if you wish to spend some of your time here at the Terre dei Cavalieri amongst scenic stretches of country and wide and fertile land surrounding it, amongst shimmering expanses of golden wheat and fields crowned by yellow sunflowers: all of this is Valdichiana, a land rich in history and tradition that was considered as early as in Roman times the “granary of Etruria” for its vast expanses of cultivated fields. Our estate consists of a Farmhouse and a Leopodina (a name given to farmhouses built around the age of Grandduke Leopold in the 1700s) built in the 18th century as well as a large park featuring a stunning swimming-pool with whirlpool bath that will invite you to spend pleasant and relaxing hours in one of Tuscany’s most enchanting settings. We designed this unique place for you to enjoy an intense and unrepeatable experience, making you feel part of an environment where things have remained unchanged and the past seems to be brought back to life everyday in its charm and character.
You will be able to dine in a kitchen that used to accommodate over thirty people at a time, sleep in the bedroom converted form the old cattle shed where farmers used to spend sleepless nights watching over their cows delivering their calves, sleep in the “tracantone” bed, sleep in the bedroom located in the Loggia or in the bedroom converted from the old dove-tower, a shelter where doves where bred by farmers. Fireplaces will tell you and remind you of stories that were told gathering around them in the cold winter nights. Walls are decorated with paintings and pictures but the best images you will be able to behold will come, as if by magic, from the windows opening onto stunning natural settings such as the dark mountains hanging over Cortona, the sweet and seamless country-side and the noble profile of Cortona….
Looking forward to having you here to discover many more things that words can not describe we would like to make a wish: that knocking on our door you may call beauty by its name.
