Twin room in a family run B&B, in an ancient 13th century tower, surrounded by olive trees and vineyards with peaceful garden and plenty of artworks, being home of a sculptor. Located on the border between Tuscany and Umbria, at about 20 km from Cortona and Montepulciano, and 10 km from lake Trasimeno, it is also easily connected to the best itineraries of this wonderful part of Italy: Siena, Arezzo, the Orcia Valley, Pienza and Montalcino, Perugia, Orvieto and many more...
The room has twin beds, and a spacious bathroom with shower. The B&B is family run and has a total of 4 rooms available for the guests. Its oldest part comes from the Middle Age, and it is known that Santa Margherita, the patron saint of Cortona, lived here in the XIII century. The little chapel is still a holy place. The owner is a sculptor and you can see his artwork everywhere in the house. The property is surrounded by the most enchanting Tuscan landscape, with olive groves and vineyards, just a short drive from the beautiful towns of Cortona, Montepulciano and lake Trasimeno. A small village is just one km away, with a convenience store and a bar.
The family will be pleased to show you the amazing view from the tower and will help you find the typical trattoria which is not on the guide books yet or the small local producer where to buy Vino Nobile di Montepulciano or the best pecorino cheese.
Extra services on request to be booked in advance: Traditional Tuscan breakfast with local products, Tuscan dinner on the tower, aperitifs with sparkling wine "just for two" on the tower (honeymoon special), cooking lesson followed by dinner: learn to make Pici, the local home made pasta!

Hallo, i'm Antonella, I've been living in this wonderful part of Tuscany since 1985, moving from Rome and never wanting to go back: this house is not just a big house, it's our home, a piece of history (Santa Margaret of Cortona lived here in the 13th century) and an atelier: my husband is a sculptor and his work of art is spread all around: this is a place for art lovers.
