This is a simple but charming 3 bedroom farmhouse sleeping up to 9 people. There is a private garden and private pool (open mid May-end of Sept.) Simply but tastefully furnished, it's a perfect venue for a family holiday with BBQ & table football.
The farmhouse is named after the mythological character, Dordano, who legend says was the founder of Cortona and from here went on to found Troy and then Rome. Certainly the building is steeped in history. On the ground floor there is a central fireplace in which is carved the coat of arms of Cardinal Passerini, evidence that the property once belonged to the famous Cardinal who was Counselor to Pope Leone X of Medici.
The property is laid out over 3 floors. On the ground floor, there is an open plan living, dining and kitchen area. The kitchen is simple but functional with everything you should need during your stay. There is also a double bedroom on this floor and a further bedroom with 3 single beds. These bedrooms share a bathroom with shower. Stairs lead from the living area to the second floor where there is another bathroom and double bedroom. Stairs lead from the bedroom to a mezzanine level where there is another double bedroom. This is a lovely room, with terracotta floors and Gothic windows. Guests can't fail to be charmed by this lovely property with its wooden beams and simple rustic furnishings.
Outside the property has a private swimming pool (40 feet x 20 feet) and garden. Plenty of loungers are provided for lazy days by the pool. Tables and chairs are also provided and there is a BBQ for al fresco dining. Children and the young at heart will have lots of fun playing at the table football table. There is an old stone well in the garden and next to this is a lovely seating area, shaded by the grapevine growing over it. The gardens are mowed meadows and enjoy lovely views over the countryside. There are also substantial outbuildings which provide welcome shaded parking bays for your cars.

I am a mother with 2 young children, age 10 & 13 and a very busy husband! I gave up work with Procter and Gamble 10 years ago to spend time at home with the children. I have loved being able to spend so much time with them. However, with both children now at school, I was keen to start working again. I initially enjoyed managing two of our own holiday properties in the Italian Lakes which we bought in 2008 and 2009 following our first visit to the area in 2007. However, I have now started to manage holiday homes for others, not just in the Italian Lakes, but elsewhere in Italy and now also in France through my site - Bookings For You. I carefully select each property and ensure that I maintain that personal but professional service level that I believe holidaymakers are looking for.
