Lovely family villa with lots of privacy

Villa for 10 - 14 persons with 5 bedrooms. 

Villa Chiara is a lovely family villa, peacefully situated in the middle of a green olive grove and only 3 km from the cozy town of Cortona. The rustic stone house has been restored and the whole place has a welcoming and cozy atmosphere. Around the villa's lovely natural plot is a sloping garden and a large private pool (12 x 6 meters wide and 0.80-2.50 meters deep) and an outdoor shower. Here is also a nice terrace where you can eat in the evening and enjoy the view of the area; from the garden and this terrace there is a beautiful view over the Valdichiana valley. The villa also has its own barbecue and stone oven if you would like to make your own pizzas one evening. 

The villa is divided into two buildings; a main building and a smaller annex, but you rent the entire place just for you. The large part of the villa (140 sqm) can accommodate 6 people. The ground floor has a cozy rustic living room with raw brick walls. Here are two sofas, fireplace and TV. Next to the living room is a large dining room, kitchen, a bathroom and small laundry with washing machine. On the first floor the three bedrooms are placed; 2 bedrooms with double bed and 1 bedroom with two single beds and a nice decorative fireplace. A bathroom with shower cabin is available for all three rooms.

The annex is divided into two smaller apartments; one on the ground floor and one on the first floor, both with their own entrance. The division of the two apartments (each 40 sqm and accommodating 2-4 people) is the same; both have a smaller living room with a sofa bed for 2 people, dining area and open kitchen, one double bedroom and a bathroom with shower.

Villa Chiara has of course wi fi and if you rent the villa in the spring or autumn months, it is possible to heat the house using the house's own heating system.

Villa Chiara is the ideal place if you are traveling with family or a group of friends as the three divided apartments offers you some privacy while you are close to each other.
