18th Century Post House villa europe

18th Century Post House

Fabulous views over the Tuscan countryside, yet only a short walk to the heart of Cortona or the Etruscan ruins; this lovely old villa meets most everyone's needs.  


Some parts of the house date from 600 BC but restoration was completed in 2007. The furnishings were selected from the family's collection of antiques. French doors open into the front garden which overlooks the pool, equipped with a salt warmed electrolysis water treatment system and sun shower. An outside dining table and chairs placed near the kitchen door offer al fresco dining overlooking six hectares of lawns and gardens and a trekking path directly from the property.
