PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Set in the beautiful countryside of the hills of Cortona and just a few minutes from this splendid little town, pearl of the Aretine Val di Chiana, the old imposing watchtower form of Torre La Ripa stands on the side of a 369 m high hill, covered by the silvery foliage of a sea of olive trees and with a never-ending view from the pool stretching over the winding green hills of the Val d'Esse, an area east of Cortona, rich in churches, archaeological sites and Renaissance villas, and along the river of the same name flowing towards Umbria. The charm of this original Tuscan farmhouse lives on in the splendid restoration that has given new light to the outside in exposed Cortona stone and to the inside, modernized to guarantee you a holiday in top comfort.

Set in the beautiful countryside of the hills of Cortona and just a few minutes from this splendid little town, pearl of the Aretine Val di Chiana, the old imposing watchtower form of Torre La Ripa stands on the side of a 369 m high hill, covered by the silvery foliage of a sea of olive trees and with a never-ending view from the pool stretching over the winding green hills of the Val d'Esse, an area east of Cortona, rich in churches, archaeological sites and Renaissance villas, and along the river of the same name flowing towards Umbria. The charm of this original Tuscan farmhouse lives on in the splendid restoration that has given new light to the outside in exposed Cortona stone and to the inside, modernized to guarantee you a holiday in top comfort. The original terracotta stone, the antique pickled wooden ceiling beams, the hand-crafted furniture and fixtures combined with details and accessories of shabby chic inspiration, as well as modern bathrooms and cosy bedrooms, make this house, with full air-conditioning and wi-fi connection, a quiet retreat to spend a magnificent holiday, protected by the silence and privacy of a beautiful, fully-equipped garden. An excellent departure point for visiting nearby shopping centres and the major towns of Tuscany - Siena, Florence, Arezzo - and of nearby Umbria - Perugia, Assisi and Orvieto. Within easy reach are the famous little towns around Siena like San Gimignano, Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalcino in the Val d'Orcia as well as those in the magnificent area of Chianti. Additional amenities: american coffee machine, baby cot, internet wireless connection, iron and ironing board, moka, radio with CD player, stone barbecueMore
