Casale dell’Artista is a fascinating 17th century farmhouse restored to high standards, featuring frescoed walls (inspired by Giotto and Lorenzetti), harmonious Tuscan decor and comfortable antique furniture throughout. Composed of a lovely old stone house on 3 floors and two self-contained guesthouses (Casina I and Casina II), the property can accommodate up to 5 couples in great comfort (3 in the main house, 1 in each guesthouse). Casale dell’Artista enjoys truly inspiring views of the Cortona hillside and is set in a charming garden with grass lawns, shady trees, a flagstone barbeque patio and dining terrace overlooking the mosaic-tiled swimming pool, all surrounded by peaceful, terraced olive groves. Located on a gentle, west-facing slope in a quiet, highly-accessible valley, sunset from the pool is a delight at Casale dell’Artista
The “Casina I” is a two-storey conversion from a 16th century chapel, is adjacent to the main house with direct access to the front lawn and garden area. Comfortably furnished and tastefully decorated, it is ideal for romantic couples, young and old alike. The Casina II is a converted hay loft situated directly beside the swimming pool area, designed in open-plan style with the bedroom in the upper gallery and the spacious living area below. Both have great character and authentic features, such as exposed stone walls, chestnut roof and ceiling beams and terracotta floor tiles
